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.”
They’re ready for this, but the general public are not. They will be vocal in expressing their outrage should M2M’s&Me air on either channel.
Ah, the homos promoting their lifestyle to other people’s kids. Does it get any better than this? So much for just wanting to live their own lives without being bothered by us “normals”.
Straps on are big in that "family"
Shrewd businessman (’er woman?) /sarc
If I only had 200 orders, I don’t think I would up my stock to 5,000. Unless as mentioned here she is banking on controversy to boost her sales.
Radical types purchasing in great numbers to boost sales, then mailing them to schools, friends, and playing it in endless loops for their own kids.
