An animated episode of the funny ladies is in the works.
Ready to experience the sure-to-be-delightful sight of Betty White in cartoon form? Soon you’ll have your chance.
The TV Land sitcom Hot In Cleveland is gearing up for an animated episode, which will air during the fifth season of the series.
The episode, which will feature art from the Titmouse Animation Studio (Black Dynamite, Metalocalypse), will find Elka (White), Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli), Joy (Jane Leeves) and Victoria (Wendie Malick) transformed into cartoon characters who embark on an around-the-world adventure.
The journey will consist of “a psychedelic romp through pop culture hits,” and will include homages to Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, The Walking Dead and Frankenstein.
“Viewers love that we take their favorite sitcom stars and put them in our original sitcoms, so we’re sure they are going to love seeing these characters in an entirely new, animated universe,” TV Land president Larry W. Jones said of the episode.
For the record, White, 92, has appeared as a cartoon character at least once before, on an episode of The Simpsons. White played herself, hosting a PBS fundraising drive. — Reuters
