Generation O! was a show that premiered on Kids WB as part of the kid’s block called Fraterdays. The theory was that there was so much amazing animation on the WB that it was spilling over to Friday afternoons. Sounds stupid huh? Yeah, I thought so too. It didn’t work either and no one watched this little gem of a show because it happened to air at the exact time that Pokemon and the anime craze hit the US and overnight the Kids WB went from airing shows like Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries and Mucha Lucha to airing nothing but anime which to me was part of their eventuall downfall.
Generation O! was the brainchild of award winning author James Proimos, Ad man David Hale and musician Tim Newman (and brother of Randy Newman) who had the great concept of an 8-year-old rockstar girl who still has to go to bed at 8pm and do the dishes. It was in many ways a cool show for me and marked my first entry into producing. Each episode had at least one catchy song (expertly done by Letters to Cleo) and a multimedia music video as well. If anyone remembers, “multimedia” was the executive catch phrase of the day back in 1999. It was an awesome show and I am sad to see that no one has heard of it.
Anyway, check out Generation O! episodes here and I’m sure you’ll agree it was a greatly overlooked show.
Oh and if you’re from Mexico, try to see the English version as I have heard that the awful dubbing made it into a terrible show.
