File under: Unbelievably Retarded Ideas. And while you're at it, you might as well cross-list it under Wildly Inappropriate Children's Programming. According to Variety
, Fox is developing The Life and Times of Jimmy Jaxx
, a cartoon based on the life of well-endowed, former wife-beating drunk Tommy Lee. See? Told ya. The cartoon will be loosely (and for the sake of all that's good and pure, I hope it's really really
loosely) based on the life of the Motley Crue drummer as he experiences the duality of being a dad and simultaneously living the lifestyle of a famous rock-star. Lee himself will be voicing the main character. Oh, and did I mention that the show will feature talking tattoos that come to life and function as Jimmy's evil conscience? Yeah.
The show's writing staff went straight to the source to come up with some zany plot lines for the half-hour 'toon. "He told us some great personal stories, like the time he filled a bathtub up with Cherry Icees for his kids," writer Michael Davidoff told Variety
. "He didn't expect that they'd end up being dyed red." How... adorable? All I'm saying is nobody better get all uppity and threaten lawsuits when a sex tape that shows Jimmy Jaxx and Stripperella getting frisky on a yacht starts to circulate on the internet. Mkay? Cause y'all were asking for it.
