Fancy Ultra•Fresh is the second studio album by American electronic band Freezepop. It was released on April 20, 2004 by The Archenemy Record Company.

The enhanced CD features a set of audio visualizers playable with the album, a link to the official Freezepop website, the bonus song "#1 Song in Heaven" and three videos, including a flash video for "Stakeout", a live television performance of "Bike Thief" from The Top Shelf Variety Hour and a "Freezepop on Tour" featurette.

The robotic voice spelling the word "Freezepop" at the beginning of "I Am Not Your Gameboy" was produced by a Speak & Spell. The album's hidden track is a cover of the theme song to Jem, an American animated series from the 1980s.

Remixed versions of "Stakeout" and "Bike Thief" appear in the video games Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix 3 and Downhill Domination, respectively. The song "I Am Not Your Gameboy" appears in Guitar Hero: On Tour.
