It seems that television favorite chef Jamie Oliver, is going to become a cartoon. but not just any cartoon — an AARDMAN cartoon.
Jamie Oliver is to be immortalised as a cartoon character by Wallace and Gromit creators Aardman Animations.
The celebrity chef will be presented as a 10-year-old cartoon version of himself in the show called little j.
The series, made by the Bristol-based Oscar winning animators, follows little j on a quest through a surreal cartoon world as he searches for the secret of becoming a great chef.
The cartoon, aimed at seven to 11-year-olds, is populated with bizarre characters such as a depressed ham and a mad scientist called Eggs Benedict.
The show will have 52 11-minute episodes. Guess the popularity of cartoon cooks evidenced by RATATOUILLE is spilling over.
