Producer Who Hates Cartoons Develops Show That Nobody Likes For A Network Nobody Watches Using Animators Who Would Rather Be Doing Something Else

Producer Ken Leavings looked skyward and said one phrase.

"Thank God for Telefilm Canada."

The lanky, self assured Leavings, public face of the animated property branch of "The L. and J. Hutter Corporation", was eager this brisk winter day to talk about success, animation, money, and success.

"So I'm walking by this store that sells comic books-some toys, but mostly comics, if you can believe that, so I grab one at random. That comic turned out to be "The New Claw"

What Ken Leavings held in his hands would soon occupy the attention of as much as 35 percent of the The L. and J. Hutter Corporation's 956 employees for periods of weeks, in some cases; months.

"Everyone was real excited about this. Turns out this comic is a big hit. Sometimes it sells 400 copies- so of course I'm thinking series! I always think series. Just not, you know, animated series."

After much negotiation, it was decided that an animated series would keep the contractors in the pacific rim too busy to outsource work to The L. and J. Hutter Corporation's chief rival, Toon Time, who had been circling the prod co for some time, eager to get their expert animation ability on "Love Pups".

"Yeah, old man Hutter really put the screws to me" said Leavings. "Of course I love animation. There's nothing like, you know, that Woodpecker, who laughs. That guy's funny. You can't do that sort of stuff in a big budget prime time live action show. With sexy guest stars."

With his eyes on the prize, Ken Leavings stalked forth to create an animated epic.

"I had just 2 questions for the creatives on this task:
One: Are you passionate about The New Claw? and
Two: Have you been an Ontario resident for 12 calendar months?"
