Have you ever laid awake at night, fervently wishing that Flavor Flav was somehow involved in a cartoon show about eco-responsibility? Some kind of adorable cross between Captain Planet and the Care Bears. Well, friends, wait no further. From the mind of David Feiss, creator of Cow and Chicken and I Am Weasel comes YooHoo and Friends!
The premise is so simple it’s a wonder no one has thought of it already. Five evil executives destroy the world for profit. Outraged, Mother Nature sends her (possibly hen-pecked) husband Father Time (Flavor Flav) to turn the executives into adorable, cuddly, endangered species. In order to return to their human bodies, they need to stop the very eco-disasters they caused and retrieve some kind of gem McGuffin.
Wikipedia informs me that it’s based off a Korean show of the same name, but more importantly that the American version will premiering in April 2011.
I am counting the days, friends.
