o, how times have changed

Remember when we were young and "celebrities" would get Saturday morning cartoons instead of reality TV shows. How great would it be to have a Public Enemy cartoon where Flava Flav is still a side kick, but instead he's a dog. And Chuck D's weapon is his piercing rhymes. Yeah, and Terminator X only speaks through samples on wax. And they hunt down fruadulent corporate criminals and government oil lobbyists. I would buy that lunch box.

Anyone remember these:

Public Enemy to be Turned into Hip-Hop Hollywood Animated Feature?
March 30, 2009 10:22 a.m. by Ethan Stanislawski
The rumor mill is starting to churn out a hip-hop movie project that sounds outright batty. It seems that there may be a new cartoon feature based on the seminal hip-hop band Public Enemy—and one that may less cartoonish than Flavor of Love at that.

In May, we will see a graphic novel collection based on the travails of Chuck D. Flava Fav, Terminator X and the Bomb Squad. According to multiple sources, MTV is reporting that “there is a lot of interest from Hollywood” for an animated movie based on Public Enemy.

If it’s anything close to the edginess of The Boondocks animated series, I’ll be watching, but I somehow wonder what kind of plot would circle around a film without Jimmy Cagney about Public Enemy . All this from the band that once recorded “Burn Hollywood Burn” and wrote the greatest hip-hop song ever for a Spike Lee movie.
