Animated Series on 9/11 to Premiere Next Fall

By Billy Pilgrim, National Nitwit Rogue Editor

(Los Angeles, CA)—Hanna-Barbera Productions announced earlier this morning that the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 will be the subject of a new animated series next fall.

And while the show is still in development, the intent is to make the traumatic impact of 9/11 more comprehendible for young children.

“Our target demographic is 6 to 11 year olds,” stated Mark Borowski, spokesperson for Hanna-Barbera. “These children have endured the legacy of terrorism without seeing those planes crash repeatedly into the twin towers. Through the magic of cartoons, we hope to change all that.”

Surprisingly, there has been little objection from victims’ families or the Bush Administration, and several networks are already eager to screen a pilot episode.

“This show will change the way we think about children’s entertainment,” remarked Tina Ping, an Executive Vice President at NBC. “For too long we’ve saturated our youngsters with mindless 'Veggie Tales' and 'Power Rangers.' What better way to teach them about global politics than through crumpling buildings and clouds of ash?”

No name has been chosen for the new show, although characters "Osama da Bomba" and "Jihad Joe" are currently being tested with focus groups.
