We want to create a cartoon about black children growing up and expressing themselves. There are shows with black characters but not many full show about black children. The most successful has been Static Shock and The Boondocks. Wayneheads was cancelled and Class of 3000 was more inclusive. Craig of the creek has hope though. I want to use real children voice but finding young children that can act will be problematic. I'm currently creating ten 11 minute episodes for one season. Judging by the success of that, I'll consider creating another season.
