My new cartoon series Franklin the Ladies’ Cat combines animation with live action. The character is inspired by 1920-1930’s cartoon stars like Oswald and Felix, but he’s placed in a contemporary world among humans.
Franklin is an enterprising cat looking for love in the big city. Despite remarkable tenacity and imagination, his overtures to human women go largely unnoticed — though that’s not how Franklin tells it! As interview shots give way to on-the-street documentary footage, his confident embellishments are revealed to be out of sync with reality.
Thanks so much for your consideration!
