Comedy Central orders Bush cartoon satire

comedy centralMore than five years after Comedy Central cancelled That's My Bush!, the network is planning to air another series that mocks the president. This time it's a cartoon called Lil' Bush: Resident of the United States. It portrays Mr. Bush and key members of his administration as "elementary school misfits". Characters include Lil' Cheney, who mumbles, and Lil' Condi, who does Lil' Bush's homework for him because she has a crush on him. Capers include torturing the lunch ladies Abu Ghraib-style when they serve falafels instead of hot dogs for lunch. The shorts are pretty funny, though they go for the easy laughs about the president's vocabulary and his cowboy attitude. It's a little more low-brow than edgier Comedy Central shows, The Colbert Report and The Daily Show.

The network has ordered six episodes of Lil' Bush, which got its start in September as animated clips through Amp'd Mobile. It's also up on YouTube, where it has been viewed more than 230,000 times. This news isn't going to sit well with the creator of Lil' Bill and Lil' Hill cartoons, who accuses the Lil' Bush creators of ripping him off.

YouTube video of the falafel episode is after the jump.

Drawn Together is great! Freak Show was bad and that's why there was only one episode shown.

This sounds dumb and won't last. If I want to watch people make fun of Bush I will turn the news on.
