Warner Bows Wayans Kids Line15 May, 2006 By: Thomas K. Arnold
Within weeks of its Nickelodeon debut in mid-August, a new children's comedy series from The Wayans Family will launch on DVD from Warner Home Video.
First up is Thugaboo Sneaker Madness, out Aug. 29 at $20. Subsequent “Thugaboo” specials will be released on DVD shortly after they bow on television.
“Thugaboo” focuses on the trials and tribulations of nine different kids growing up in the hip-hop world of “Boo” York City. Shawn Wayans, who created “Thugaboo” with brothers Marlon and Keenen Ivory, calls the series a “kind of throwback to the old Fat Albert and Charlie Brown days, but packaged in something cooler and hipper.”
