This is my life.
So, about a month ago I got an email asking if I would be interested in interviewing any of the actors or writers for a new kids animated show. I still am not sure how the email ended up on my doorstep. There’s a lot of reasons, I guess, due to my blogging chops and reviews that I do for other kids’ programs…
And also that I have two small boys. There’s that. Because – THIS show was kind of catered exactly to my nutball boys’ likes: rocket ships, inventions, fast things whizzing about, total geekout science-ey moments…
And brothers. Brothers who are going to SAVE THE DAY.
So, of course, it looked like a great fit. And of course I was totally all over it.
And then… I kept watching the clips. And I kept watching… And then I totally freaked out.
This show. It’s a redux of the show I used to watch when I was a KID. Like, me, with my bowls of Trix cereal and some Ovaltine, and these hotties:
I was kind of in love with the all the Tracy boys. They had really really good hair. And, they were out to save the day.
I know. They were puppets. But there was a degree of realism there that just made me think I might have a chance…
Anyhow. SWEET CIRCLE OF LIFE I AM REVIEWING THE REMAKE!!!!
My life. I tell you. If you had told me that one day I would be interviewing a writer in California about a show he’s really proud and excited about, because HIS son, Henry will love it too…
Oh life. I just think you are too funny.
And the Tracy boys are sill adorable. They have really good hair.
Stay tuned: interview with head writer, Rob Hoegeee, tomorrow. And I’ll also explain why I chose interviewing him, instead of the actors because they too have good hair. (Although Rob might too… I dunno… ) Anyhow, more on that tomorrow. 🙂
