Auntie Dora is one of a cast of true characters. Years ago I had written several episodes for a proposed animated Simpsonesque adult cartoon series. The working title was “The Gatlin Dynasty” and it centered around a southern mountain family. But, too many politically correct types were scared off and the project never got off the ground. I still think there’s room for a smart ‘toon about the “wrong” kind of people who have hearts of gold and usually end up doing the right thing. Thank the stars, the world is full of them.

Well, I gave it a shot. I guess it wasn’t what they were looking for. Maybe next time.
