The Naked Chef gets animated
Jamie Oliver is getting Wallace & Gromit-ized.
Aardman Animations, which produces the Wallace & Gromit cartoons, and Fresh One Productions, Oliver's company, are making a cartoon which will feature the young chef. The series will be titled Little J and will feature the adventures of a 10 year-old Jamie Oliver and how he started to love food and cooking and became a chef.
The show is described as "comically surreal and exciting," and from the picture in the article it certainly looks like it will be heavy on the surreal part. What is that he's holding, a giant broccoli with a face? And I know they don't have the best dental system in Britain, but look at that mouth. Very A Nightmare Before Christmas, mixed with a little Yellow Submarine. Should be fun though.
