A Rachael Ray Cartoon?

Could this be true? Man, writing this blog has turned me into such a skeptic. I defnitely don't believe any story about Rachael Ray's marriage, it took a lot to convince me she was throwing a SXSW party, and now I'm skeptical about this newest story. According to PopCrunch (via Slashfood), Rachael Ray is developing a cartoon. See - your reaction was skepticism too, right? Thanks, glad it's not just me. Here are the scant details:

Rachael is developing a cartoon, featuring herself as a young chief, for a January 2009 release throught Oprah’s Harpo Productions.

“It’s in the very early stages of production,” an insider says. “Rachael is working with illustrators, trying to get the right look for her character.”

I think anytime it says "Insider" as the source, it's usually a load of you know what, but this is plausible, since Rachael's Yum-o! Organization is aimed at helping kids eat right. Plus, she's got a cookbook just for kids, called Cooking Rocks!. This would be another effective way to reach kids, don't you think?

So, true or not true? I'm still on the fence.


  1. I guess we'll just have to wait & see. It really wouldn't surprise me though . . . I hear a lot of parents mention how much their kids love watching Rachael Ray. So I guess it isn't that far fetched?

  2. That's very true - she has a huge number of fans that are kids. I'll keep my eye out for it!
