IZZY READY TO GO POP AND HIT THE SCREEN

     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).
