Storyline

The story about a man-sized frog named Prince Frederic who is turned into a frog by his wicked aunt Messina and hired by British Intelligence to solve the mysterious disappearances of some of Britain's greatest monuments. Several hundred years later, Freddie is now living in modern-day Paris, a six-foot-tall amphibian with the moniker Secret Agent F.R.O.7. Messina, too, is still around causing mischief, joining forces with an arch-villain named El Supremo in a scheme to shrink Big Ben. Freddie, alerted to Messina's nefarious plans, gathers his fellow agents Daffers and Scottie together, planning to hide out in Big Ben and surprise the evil doers when they are set to strike at the much-loved British landmark.

Trivia

The first theatrically-released animated film to star Brian Blessed, later he'd go onto voice Clayton in Tarzan (1999), the Pirate King in The Pirates! Band of Misfits (2012), and Judge Jawbreaker in Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return (2013). See more »

Goofs

On the Scottish island, when Freddie and Scotty knock out the two guards at the entrance to the secret lair, Scotty states that they should use the guards' uniforms and face masks to camouflage themselves. Freddie has difficulty understanding the term and saying the word, which is a mistake as the word itself is French, meaning to disguise oneself. However, such a word may not have been in use during Freddie's childhood in France, but he is likely to have run across it in his several hundred years of life, and as it is a French word he should understand its meaning.

THIS IS A FROGGIN MASTERPIECE!!!!
15 September 2004 | by sammy-80See all my reviews

Where to start? This is one of the greatest animations to date, hell IT IS THE GREATEST ANIMATION TO DATE!!!! The story is as follows, a 17th century prince in France gets transformed into a frog, meets the loch ness monster and becomes present day secret agent Freddie the frog, fighting evil. Now the logic starts. All of Britains great monuments are disappearing because an obese warlord allied with Freddies evil aunt are shrinking them for a reason that makes perfect sense. All the Britons lives are directly linked to those monuments and if they are taken away, the British people die. Wow. What a film. So full of the logic and structure lacking in all of Spielbergs movies. It also has incredibly well done dialogue by a uniform cast and great songs that should have won an Oscar.
