Geez how could I resist NOT writing about this.

For those of you not familiar with the title, this is an upcoming cartoon show aimed at kids about a boy who finds a magic ring in his deceased aunt's estate. The ring grants superpowers to it's wearer BUT there is a catch, the ring is meant for a girl to wear.
The pilot ran a few years ago on Disney (that's how I missed it) as part of their Shorty McShorts' Shorts series, you can see the pilot here www.viddler.com/v/d0371341
A funny enough premise but you can see how it might be controversial so nothing was heard of a series.
UNTIL NOW.

Here's the new opening for the show

It's still a funny idea and I look forward to seeing the show.
No word on if it's even going to run in the US yet.

Couple of things about it that could get controversial.
It's not established if the kid actually becomes a girl or just gets the costume and hair & makeup, although in the pilot when he transforms back he DOES say "I'm a dude again"
His attitude towards being Shezow, he likes the powers but not the costume and the fact he at least looks like a girl, that is likely to get some bad reactions from the womens groups.
The fact his best friend is in love with Shezow will probably also get some flak.

Me, I just hope it runs over here, it looks like it'll be funny.
There is even some nice fanart all ready.

They may be breaking up the seasons worth of episodes.
More will probably show up in March.

It still is a really great show. The Shorty McShort-Shorts' cartoon's only real saving grace was Jason Earles as Guy. Now, the animation, characters, writing, plots, and even the character and art design are a million and six times better! The show, unfortunately, is pretty underrated, but really shows just how talented people can use Flash for amazing animation like this.

I watched a few of the episodes and the entire thing has been sanitized. Worst feminine thing he has to put up with is a manicure and tripping on his heels. :P
