and producer for clients such as HBO, MTV. and King
World Entertainment, John Gotimer had a dream.

Bulllwinkle show, The Tonight Show and
MTV, The Rockin' Ralphie Show began to
take shape. It was to be a kids talk and
music video show featuring a hip raccoon
as the DJ and his sidekick the
Oh So Cool Brody the Squirrel.
Featuring songs like Rockin' Robin, Sugar Sugar, Joy to the World
and Locomotion, this video offered something for both the kids and
their parents to enjoy. That's Amoré and Would You Like to Swing on
a Star added the grandparent appeal.
Personalizing each film with the name of the child for whom it was
purchased, was also part of the production idea for this new film. Packed
full of public service announcements and kind guidance from a hip
raccoon opened the door to this unique project.
