If you think you're a wacky enough cut-up to be on TV, get theeself to a Six Flags near you. Cartoon Network is teaming with the amusement park chain to ask, "Are You A Cartoon Network Kid?"
Cartoon Network cameras will pitch a tent at selected Six Flags amusement parks across the US this spring. Once there, they will conduct auditions to find kids who "embody the network's motto--fun, funny, and fearless."
Inside the area of each park, the network will set up an "Are You A Cartoon Network Kid?" staging booth where they will capture 10-60 seconds of young A-material. The kids who make the cut will be featured in original spots that will air on the network during prime time in May.
"This nationwide search is more about finding kids who can laugh like a hyena on helium, balance 27 silver spoons on their face, or perform a concert with their armpits than about stand-up comedy," said Dennis Adamovich, senior vice president of marketing for Cartoon Network. "We want to spotlight kids whose lives reflect the unique spirit and attitude of Cartoon Network, the best place there is to simply be outrageous...or at least outrageously funny!"
The contest is open to all kids between the ages of 6 and 12--sorry, adult man-children, you're not eligible. Interested parites should check out all the rules and eligibility requirements at the Cartoon Network Web site.
The hunting grounds are listed as follows:
May 6-7: Six Flags in Ventura, California
May 20-21: Six Flags in Atlanta, Georgia
June 3-4: Six Flags in Chicago, Illinois
