In a new plan to save AOL, Tim Armstrong, who is the current Chief Executive Officer and Chairman, will be releasing cartoons titled: The Millionaires Club, which will star Warren Buffett, and Martha Stewart Kids. These cartoons will teach children about the world of business. AOL plans to partner with A Squared Entertainment to develop the web cartoons.
These cartoons will be strictly viewed on the internet in a way to, as AOL calls it in their new mission statement, “To inform, entertain, and connect the world.” There are even a few ex-Yahoo! employees who will share ideas on how to produce the latest cartoons.
AOL will also be releasing cartoons starring Gisele Bündchen and the late Carl Sagan.
According to NewTeeVee, the premises for each cartoon are:
Secret Millionaire’s Club: Warren Buffet (in animated form) mentors a group of kids on their adventures in business and finance.
Gigi & The Green Team: An animated Gisele Bündchen plays a superhero who protects the environment by night.
Little Martha: A 10-year-old Martha Stewart (yes, also animated) “operates an event planning company from her tricked-out tree house.” Topics include cooking, crafting and gardening.
Kosmos — the late, now-animated Carl Sagan combines science with space adventure in the vein of educational series Cosmos.
The cartoons will be released starting in autumn of 2009 and spring 2010.
