My inspiration for creating Lucky was my love
for Saturday morning cartoons that I enjoyed as a child.
I was one of those crazy kids that got up at 6:30 in the
morning to watch re-runs of Casper the Friendly Ghost
before the new cartoons began.
I loved Bugs
Bunny, of course for the sheer hilarity of those classic
Looney Tunes. I must have saw the same cartoons a
million times. I also loved all those super creative and
colorful Hanna Barbera characters. Sure, now as an adult
I realize they were what is considered limited
animation. In other words, they were created with a lot
fewer frames per second and thus not quite as lively as
the Bugs Bunny cartoons that were made originally for
theatrical release, but I didn't even know cartoons were
made for anything other than television at the time.
All of those great characters have been roaming
around in my mind for years, and as an adult I hope to
entertain new generations of youngsters with something
that is fun and exciting. The ultimate dream for me
would be for Lucky to graduate from books to television,
and, who knows, wouldn't it be neat to get Saturday
mornings filled with cartoons again on every channel.
