You had RICH parents. I would have to sell all my bodily fluids to just pay off the interrest on my student loan.
Even in the entertainment industry, the rich get richer, and the poor get effed royally.
When I go into a Target, I pretty much use all my might to not go to the preschooler toy section and smash Backyardigans merchandise. What is that anyway? Muppet Babies for underdeveloped kids?
It's sad. Unless you're making a toy commercial for a product that's not likely to be made into a toy, or some moronic "interactive" preschooler show (and by "interactive" the characters talk really loud and slow so babies with undeveloped eye sight and reasoning can catch up) you're left out in the cold, sitting on your ideas, and cursing God for having put you in a crappy universe. At least that's what I do.
So it's internet cartoon in an overly saturated market (saturated by 13 year olds that think they can copy anime
) or nothing. At least until the network execs all get their head out of their butts, or get fired and replaced by someone who's competant.
