IZZY READY TO GO POP AND HIT THE SCREEN
Published September 26, 1994
Izzy, the Olympic mascot for the '96 games, will have a "series of animated specials" that will debut next spring. A financial backer has guaranteed three shows, but the Olympic committee would like a "longer run if they can find funding." Lunch boxes, backpacks, action figures, and video games will hit the stores following the series. Film Roman, the "North Hollywood animation studio who is responsible for The Simpsons," will produce the show. "The Great Adventures of Izzy" will be offered in the syndicated market and each show will cost an estimated $1.3M for production and air time (Turner & Pousner, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 9/24).
