LUCKY LYDIA

Back in the late 90's, Bob Camp and I made a pilot with Film Graphics for Cartoon Network.
It was based on a loose idea I had, about a kid who's just lucky.
At that stage, the networks were quite interested but it was still just a loose idea.
That's where Bob comes in to the picture, he grabbed the premise instantly and turned it into a properly structured cartoon, bringing tons of "funny" into the concept.
Needless to say of course , that Linda Simensky and Kahki Jones, over at C.N. at the time, were paramount to this whole project. They were keen on Lucky Lydia right from the start.
Cartoon Network green lit the pilot, we made it and it went to air. Although the series was never picked up, we still had a lot of fun writing the stories and producing the animation.

Bob made up the word "Coolaroid", meaning two things really, cool and hemorrhoids, a form of Yin and Yang, good and bad.

Nice stuff! I wish I could see the whole pilot! Your artwork is really nice and you are lucky to have worked with Bob Camp.

Thanks James,

I have to figure out a way to get the pilot off my dvd reel and post it somehow.
You bet! working with Bob both on R&S and Lydia was a real blast.

Hey Pablo,

I agree with you there, and by the way, I was born across the river from your country but I can barely speak spanish.

Hey Carol,

If only the animation gods would allow it so.
What irks me the most, is that Bob and I wrote some real funny scripts that had been approved and ready to go.(irk)

Thanks for dropping by,
Rgards, Arthur
