LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – Our history is often different than what we think it is. Did you know that some people wanted George Washington to be the King of America, not the President? Meet George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John and Abigail Adams, Paul Revere, Benedict Arnold, Deborah Samson and some of the heroes behind the American Revolution as they come to life in the popular animated series Liberty’s Kids. Arriving just in time for the holidays and the upcoming U.S. presidential election, Shout! Factory, in association with DIC Entertainment, will unleash Liberty’s Kids: The Complete Series DVD box set on October 14, 2008.
Offering rich animation and engaging storytelling, The Complete Series of Liberty’s Kids is star spangled with respected news journalist Walter Cronkite as Benjamin Franklin leading an all-star voice cast comprised of some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Annette Benning (Abigail Adams), Warren Buffet (James Madison), Billy Crystal (John Adams), Michael Douglas (Patrick Henry), Whoopi Goldberg (Deborah Samson), Dustin Hoffman (Benedict Arnold), Liam Neeson (John Paul Jons), Maria Shriver (Peggy Shippen), Ben Stiller (Thomas Jefferson), Arnold Schwarzenegger (Baron von Steuben), Sylvester Stallone (Paul Revere), Michael York (Admiral Lord Howe) and General Norman Schwarzkopf (George Rogers Clark), among others. Music sensation Aaron Carter lends his voice as Joseph Plumb Martin and performs the theme song. Featuring all 40 action-packed episodes and a wealth of bonus content, the collectible Liberty’s Kids: The Complete Series DVD box is priced to own at $59.99.
Poised to attract an audience of kids, parents and educators, the stories told in Liberty’s Kids comprise the fabric of American history and the ideals on which our country was built – patriotism, freedom and democracy. Moreover, this acclaimed animated series enlightens today’s youth by exploring the profound impact of the American Revolution and relating it to issues that face all of us today.
Written under the supervision of Pulitzer Prize winning author Jack Rakove, Liberty’s Kids: The Complete Series vibrantly brings America’s history to life and depicts key events from the American Revolution as seen through the eyes of three kids who work in Benjamin Franklin’s print shop. The kids may be fiction, but all of the history is accurate and authentic.
