Teenage Girl President: The Cartoon Series?

When last we left Teenage Girl President she was finally about to escape her self-imposed exile at Coldstone Creamery:

Well, as the new Medium Large comic site lumbers to life it turns out Teenage Girl President may be going on air rather than online. That's because I recently signed a deal to help bring a cartoon series of TGP to a less-than-discriminating basic cable channel near you.

Now this is all in the preliminary stages of eventual turnaround, so my saying "I signed a deal" is in no way the same as my saying "TGP is airing after Venture Bros." (Though that, in two words, would rule). But I am happy that it's moving forward and I thank each and every one who read--and commented on--the comic way back when. You gave me the confidence to seek out and sign this deal.

And, of course, I have to give a special shout-out to Yellojkt for his long-ago post about the viability of such a series...only to be hit with more than his fair share of requests from all-too-enthusiastic stage mothers.

I'll keep you all up-to-date when there is more news.

Holy crap! Mazel Tov!

Thanks, Josh! But like I said, signing a deal is several, several steps away from apologizing online for the pilot episode. Still, I am excited about the possibility of selling out.

You're selling out?!?

Aw man, I remember when you were cool...

And really poor.

Now you're gonna be just another corporate tool like Iggy, Wilco, Letham, Kirby, Burroughs and Charles Schultz.

I suppose you'll probably start eatin' three meals a day and everything.

In all seriousness, I hope you make so goddamn much money that you would never consider acknowledging gutter trash like me.

As one who wasn't there way back when, I'm just waiting anxiously until I get to read this thing. You've got me hooked with the teasers here.

Man, I hope this happens.

Boutros said...

Whee! I'm so excited at the prospect!

Medium Large is coming back???

Oh, the the TV show thing would be pretty mindblowingly kickass too.

Besides we have a whole new crop of tweener stars that play that role. I'd vote for the smart-assed sidekick on iCarly. And yes, I do watch more Nick than a grown man should.

And to think TGP was originally a snark at the awful bizarreness that is/was WB programming. The irony is... what's the adjective I'm looking for? Delicious? Mirth inducing? Purple?
