Cabbage Patch Kids getting an animated TV show


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Hollywood continues to pillage out childhood memories to create semi-fresh modern entertainment (i.e. a “Smurfs” movie, coming soon to a theater near you), so it was inevitable that the Cabbage Patch Kids would resurface at some point to appeal to the children of a new generation.

And so we learn that Galen Walker, producer of a new “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” movie, also has grabbed the rights to the Appalachian Artworks dolls and is hard at work on an animated TV special, THR reports.

If you are my age (mid-30s), you remember the flat-out craze that existed around owning a Cabbage Patch, dolls that came with adoption papers and triggered a feeding frenzy in toy stores at Christmas time. (Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Jingle All the Way” was inspired by the Patch craze.)

“It’s a brand filled with many positive messages for kids,” Walker told the trade. Now idea yet when the show will air, but we’ll keep you posted on details.
