Robot Richard

Rate this Entry
Roughly 10-11 years ago, I had a vision of a cartoon. It was about a guy who was killed and his brain was put into a robot by his crazy intellectual professor friend. It was a Simpsons/Futurama type deal. It had that kind of humor and emotion that both shows displayed(this was back when Simpsons was the best damn thing in the world to me).

I don't want to make a cartoon TV series; those things are so weird. Like, at this point in the game, if I did make one, chances are it would either get canceled quickly on, or, it'll become really popular and overstay its welcome. I don't really want either of those two things. So I thought; why not movie?

I don't want to make too many movies as an adult, mostly TV shows, but I do want to appeal to people. Almost all of my show ideas are teen/adult oriented. But this... could be family oriented.

See, if I change around some of the stuff, Richard is killed and then put into a robot... but then what? Naturally, he'd go after the person/persons who killed him and he'd want revenge. Sure, it's kind of a cliche, but who cares. As long as there are twists and turns and surprises and laughs and emotion and adventure and all that good stuff, this has potential.... right?

What I want to do is start off with this idea, A. because it's the first legitimate idea I'd had, and B. I want to start and work up. I want to start working on making family entertainment everyone can enjoy, and then move my way up to teen/adult related shows.

Can I do it? Hell yes I can.

    Days of Future Future did it too.

    Still, this could be very interesting.

    Hopefully it'll be as successful as "Robot Jones"
