    Creative Notes:
    A quick video to capture the comedic tone and cartoon-style zip, bang pow of the show concept. I think the sound effects are a key to the feel of the show. The show itself is meant to be animated... This is the same as the previous trailers. I thought those ones didn't upload.

    Creative Notes:
    Version one accidentally had the mini-bible included at the head of the pilot script. I cut the mini-bible out of this version.

    Ricky’s patent lawyer has secretly fallen in love with him via their emails. Now she’s coming over to have documents signed. Ricky has to get his dad to unwittingly sign them while keeping everyone from learning too much! Meanwhile the neighbours’ kid is on to him.
