When I was a kid, I fancied myself a pretty talented writer. In fact, I authored an unpublished book about a family that got stuck in a flimsy canoe on the Amazon River. The book was a whole 30 pages, however, I have to admit my handwriting became increasingly bigger near the last chapters so I could meet the 30 page quota.
I’m positive I would have gone bananas if my action-filled story was featured on my newest obsession, Written By A Kid. Too bad it didn’t exist at the time… The series brings to life the fanciful tales of young children, by getting well known actors to portray their narration. In the second episode, eight-year-old CiCi tells the story of a toddler named Max (Link Neal) who tests the patience of his new stepdad (Rhett McLaughlin) and ultimately develops an appreciation of the Goth lifestyle.
The show, which was created by Will Bowles and Josh Flaum, featured Joss Whedon in the first episode, acting out a rowdy cowboy named Gerald who conquers an alien. The animation is hilarious and the stories are way better than anything an adult could come up with.
