Submission Samples from the Animation Genre

Title: Motorbike Mike

Logline: What if the Bad News Bears met the Wonder Years? You would get MOTORBIKE MIKE, a series where an eclectic group of small town misfits tackle big city issues to exploit the stupidity of mankind.

Synopsis: This animated series brilliantly blends an eclectic group of small town teenage misfits with musical satire, devilish pranks, and big city issues to exploit the stupidity and ignorance of mankind in hopes of educating the masses and inspiring good will. The show revolves around the lead character Motorbike Mike, who with his witty, personable voice-overs and punk rock attitude, wreaks havoc on his community, on an intellectual level, by addressing stereotypes, political and social issues, and the everyday complications of teenage life. The town, where all this takes place, is sarcastically mirrored after Branson, MO, where a well know strip of amphitheaters are owned and operated by yesteryears washed-up, power-hungry cartoon celebrities. The town also features a famous karaoke bar, a haunted single A baseball stadium paired with a foul-mouthed, drunken play-by-play announcer, an inspiring rebel social studies teacher, and Motorbike Mike's best friend Jukebox. Jukebox, a humorous, quick-witted goofy kid, speaks only via an electronic laptop/stereo called a bangbox, which plays movie quotes, songs, sounds, and anything else needed to communicate his thoughts and ideas. With innovative jargon, timely music, topical subject matter, and even some occassional video footage, MOTORBIKE MIKE aims at creating a unique and heartfelt series with a return to yesteryear feel. I also have feature-length screenplay entitled LUCHARPAN, which is a family-oriented comedy/fantasy-adventure
