FUNNY FACE DRINK-MIX CHARACTERS TO BE RESURRECTED
I almost spit out my Kool-Aid when I read some good news!
Thanks to this good news I might have a chance to spit out some Funny Face in the near future if Renegade Animation is able to sell a pilot featuring our old fruit flavored friends of Funny Face. That’s right according to Cartoon Brew Renegade has snagged the rights to the Funny Face characters who were popular during the 60's and 70's as a fruit flavored drink-mix made by Pillsbury.
Hopefully this will be picked up and become a popular weekly cartoon. Besides seeing the Funny Face gang in an animated series it would be very cool to see it come back as a drink-mix again. Heck, if it’s big-time popular maybe the characters will have their own cereal and Pez dispensers and ice cream bars and action figures and sneakers and bed sheets and. . . Ok, I’m getting ahead of myself, but all this would be very cool!
To wet your whistle for Funny Face check out these amazing Funny Face collections from Jim Rash - his flickr and his website. Also check out Dan Goodsell's collection at his website.
Here's some fun old commercials -
Thanks goes to Brandon and Dan for the heads up on this important breaking news!
