OMAHA, Neb. Two Omaha moms are launching a straight-to-DVD cartoon that reflects their own life together as parents of a young boy.
Buddy G My Two Moms and Me is about a 5-year-old with two moms who loves science and uses a computer strapped to his arm to solve problems.
Executive producer Margaux Towne-Colley said Monday that most reaction to the $10 DVD has been positive so far, although she does expect some negatives: "There's people out there who would like to pretend families like ours don't exist, but we do."
The first episode talks about the value of being truthful, along with a few facts about how metal detectors work. Future episodes were to include other families, including ones with two dads.
Towne-Colley said the company she and her spouse formed, Us 2 LLC, has received a few hundred orders for the first episode DVD. She expects to have 5,000 copies in hand by mid-December.
She would love to see their cartoon air on TV, but doesn't expect that to happen soon: "I don't know if Nickelodeon or the Disney Channel would be ready for this."
That's a safe bet: In 2005, after criticism from Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings, PBS said it wouldn't distribute an episode of the children's series Postcards from Buster, in which the animated bunny visits the children of two lesbian couples in Vermont.
“I don’t know if Nickelodeon or the Disney Channel would be ready for this.”
Oh, the mail they would get if they did!!
“There’s people out there who would like to pretend families like ours don’t exist”
Then ‘there’s’ people like me who won’t pretend they’re families.
Uh... no. I know ebola exists, that doesn't mean I want to see a movie about a little boy with it.
..uses a computer strapped to his arm to solve problems.
He got the idea from one of his mothers...
LOL, good analogy.
Just what the world needs, another movie that seeks to show another five year old making Einstein look incredibly simple by comparison.
1. Worlds smartest precocious child...
2. More single sex role models that are better parents than male/female couples
Wow, where can I get a copy?
They’re sinful unnatural families..but “they’re Ok”..somehow I don’t think God believes so, and neither does He like families where the mom and dad aren’t married and are living together!..
It's Strap-On Technology©
His mommas showed him that, I bet!
That was that little boy rescued at a buffet line in Florida who had had the crap beaten out of him by his two mommies?
And I feel bad for you having to living in the State where this is most prevelantly accepted!
God Bless you, Conservative, friend, and (Hopefully man or woman of faith in Christ!). ;)
This is really insensitive to those children with three mommies.
A biological impossibility.
I see. The computer is strapped to his arm.
He uses a ‘strap-on brain’ to get things done.
What does Mommy use to get things done?
A couple of years ago I happened to be eating at a restaurant in California where, at another table, two middle-aged women and a boy who looked to be about ten or twelve years old were seated.
Strictly speaking, I suppose it could have been the boy’s Mom and her sister, but I suspect it was his “two Moms”.
He looked to be almost suicidal.
Unfortunately, the episode of “Postcards From Buster” was seen on my local PBS, and I found my daughter watching it.
Kids! We're home!
