Jamie Oliver is An Animated Fellow

Those of you that miss seeing Jamie Oliver (aka The Naked Chef) on a regular basis, will be happy to know that he's signed on to do another show. Only this time, instead of appearing in the flesh, he'll appear as a cartoon version of his 10-year-old self.

In a joint effort between his production company Fresh One Productions and Wallace and Gromit creators Aardman Animations, Jamie will appear as a cartoon aimed towards seven to eleven-year-olds. The series will feature Jamie on a quest to becoming a truly great chef. Along the way he'll interact with a world filled with talking food and other unusual characters such as Eggs Benedict — a mad scientist, obviously.

"I can't tell you how passionate I am about kids and food," said Oliver.
"I really want to pass on a little knowledge in a fun way, to really connect to the younger kids, so teaming up with the incredible Aardman Animations to produce Little J was an absolute must."

As of now, the 52-part series does not have a broadcaster, but I have a feeling we'll see it soon enough.

dh931- I agree I'm an artist and I find it terrifying looking. Maybe its because its a small image? And OK... his character meets all these food people... then he eats them??? I mean hey... if its a world of talking food... somebodys gonna get eaten. I like the IDEA of it in general...maybe it will teach kids to eat healthy? But it seems a little on the creepy side even for me.
