Investor Buffett to Release Kidvid Series9 Feb, 2006 By: Thomas K. Arnold
Warren Buffett is getting into home video.
The famous investor is partnering with DIC Entertainment to create a direct-to-DVD animated series aimed at promoting financial literacy to kids. “The Secret Millionaire's Club,” now in production, will consist of 13 titles that will start arriving in stores in the fall.
The lead character is an animated Warren Buffett, who will teach financial lessons using what a press release calls “kid-relatable characters” and real-world situations.
No word yet on which supplier will distribute the DVDs, with a press release only saying they will be released by “a major home entertainment distributor.”
