noun. (Sh-nick-L . Frit-z)
Snicklefritz was originally used in Pennsylvania Dutch Country, where Snicklefritz is an affectionate name for a mischievous or overly talkative child.
"Schnickelfritz" was the name of a somewhat popular comedy band in the 1930s
In 1953 Billy Wilder both directed and co-wrote the Oscar winning war drama "Stalag 17" About a WWII PoW accused of being an informant within the camp. One scene in the film involves the PoWs betting on mouse races for cigarettes. one race involves two mice named Snicklefritz and Equipoise. Snicklefritz loses to Equipoise when it stops to chase its tail during the race. (This could be the origin of word in the popular comedy "Pineapple Express" rating Snicklefritz as a low grade of Marijuana)
From 1992-2006 a Canadian children's television series called "The Big Comfy Couch" about Loonette the Clown and her doll Molly, who solve everyday problems on their 'Big Comfy Couch'. In the Show, Snicklefritz is the character Granny Garbanzo's scallywag cat.
The 2008 Comedy "Pineapple Express solidified a whole new definition of the word within the Marijuana Subculture.
Snicklefritz is referred to in the movie as a very low grade of marijuana. This exact translation has weaved seamlessly throughout the subculture's dialog as to still be used to designate the lowest grades of marijuana or any random strain. This is widely accepted throughout the U.S. as the most common and popular definition of the word.
