Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Most creator-driven TV cartoon series merely reflect the tastes of their producers. Kid Notorious was the first cartoon series inspired by the life of its producer -- Hollywood movie mogul Robert Evans, the man responsible for such classics as The Godfather, Rosemary's Baby, and Chinatown. Evans himself supplied the voice for his animated alter-ego, just as Evans' real-life butler, Alan Selka, was heard as "Kid Notorious"' faithful retainer "English." Rounding out the cast was the obligatory sassy black maid Tollie Mae, voiced by comedienne Niecy Nash. Befitting its inspiration, Kid Notorious was festooned with inside showbiz references, dripping sarcasm, and casual profanity. Befitting its unsuitability for children, the series was seen on the Comedy Central network, beginning October 22, 2003.
