The group's portfolio of work includes two albums, one 7" EP and one download-only EP (plus a string of live performances as a band), various art exhibits such as An Attack On All Americans Or The Tyranny Of Weed shown at the LFL Gallery in New York and the script for the film Final Flesh. In 2010, they held an exhibition/video screening of a selection of their work entitled PFFR Presents Legacy IIX which took place at the Synchronicity Space in Los Angeles, CA between April 3 and May 1.
PFFR are also active in television comedy. They wrote, directed, produced and starred in the MTV2 variety show Wonder Showzen (2005–2006) and the Adult Swim CGI series Xavier: Renegade Angel. For both these shows, Chatman and Lee are the directors and main voice talent, whilst Tozzi and Levy are the animation/character designer and art director, respectively. Levy provides additional voices for both shows whilst Tozzi does only for 'Xavier'. PFFR are also responsible for producing, directing and co-writing Jon Glaser's Adult Swim show Delocated.
Chatman and Lee collaborated on Doggy Fizzle Televizzle, a short lived sketch show starring Snoop Dogg, although this was not an official PFFR production. Following this show, Snoop Dogg made a guest appearance on PFFR's 'United We Doth' LP as well as a second-season episode of Xavier: Renegade Angel.
Chatman provided the voice for South Park character Towelie and worked as a staff writer/consultant on the show in 2004. He returned to the show in 2009 as a producer. He has written for Matt Stone and Trey Parker's short lived sitcom That's My Bush, Late Night with Conan O'Brien and The Chris Rock Show.
Levy directed the documentary film The Hands Of God about Christian puppeteers. She had a photography exhibition at Momenta Art, Brooklyn, in 2000 which featured a selection of photographs depicting various spoof sitcom scenes starring herself and friend Janeane Garofalo. She is also married to Lee.
Tozzi is an independent artist and has worked as a member of the production companies KanDoKid and T.H.E.M. directing a number of television commercials. Tozzi parted ways with PFFR in 2009, following the production of Xavier: Renegade Angel.
Lee was previously a member of the now defunct rock band Muckafurgason. He is known as a supertaster through the song "John Lee Supertaster" by the alternative rock band They Might Be Giants, with whom he is close friends.
