Market positioning:

This animated series positions itself in between the already popular

trend of redneck comedy and the recent trend of animated buddy

comedies, which are currently being sought after and developed by

major networks. The characters are original yet familiar (A redneck

monkey and his bear brother?), and the story engine is a different

angle of the familiar Genie story. Ideas for interactive marketing

elements could be: The Wish-O-Meter contest where viewers submit

their own wishes to be featured in an episode or on the season finale.

The best duck tape picture contest where viewers submit a picture

of creative ways to use duck tape. And the creative pa-taters contest

where viewers submit a creative recipe or invention for taters, to

name a few...

What happens when two goofy redneck brothers named BUBBA JO

and BUBBA DEAN discover an evil Genie named BEANIE in the

happy-go-lucky world of BELLY ACRES? Mayhem of course! What

else could happen in a series of wacky-wish-gone-wrong adventures

with an endless supply of duck tape and pa-taters?

Belly Acres is about loving your family, being thankful for your friends,

and appreciating what you have. When you curiously discover the

magic in life and find a fun-filled adventure in everything you do, you

realize the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the fence.

Happy is as happy does down on Belly Acres! But when two redneck brothers

Bubba Jo and Bubba Dean find a magical ol’ tin can of pork-n-beans in a crate by

the railroad tracks and out pops a semi-evil Genie, of course, mayhem ensues…

Imprisoned long ago by his previous master, Larry the Pork Bean King of Chicago,

the Genie must now grant a total of 30 wishes, instead of 3, to his new master in

order to be set free.

But Bubba Jo and Bubba Dean welcome the semi-evil Genie as a newfound friend

into the family and fondly nickname him Cousin Beanie. Yes the two Bubbas are true

rednecks to the core through-and-through. They really don’t want the wishes, they

just want to have fun, laugh, play around and be happy. Bubba Jo has a fascination

with anything that has to do with pa-taters, and Bubba Dean likes to fix and build

stuff with duck-tape or whatever else is lying around! In fact, everyone living down on

Belly Acres is happy to have a new friend, and they all just love Beanie to death and

consider him as kinfolk, which of course irritates the heck out of Beanie.

With his Wish-O-Meter now reset to 30 wishes, Beanie must coax, or trick, the good-

natured Bubbas into wishing for things whether they want to or not.

Thanks to Beanie’s semi-evil scheme, the entire Belly Acres clan experiences one

wacky-wish-gone-wrong adventure after another. But at the end of the day, the

Bubbas and the rest of the Belly Acre clan are glad to be together like one big happy

family, well sort of.

Catch phrase: TATERS!!! (How it’s said changes with his emotion.)

Bubba Jo is a pa-tater fanatic who just loves to laugh and have fun. He’s so clumsy that he couldn’t hit the ground once if he fell twice and is always up for sumthin’, even if it’s a little dangerous or just plain whopper-jawed crazy.

Bubba Jo loves to play with his brother’s thingamabobs, and he puts his all into everything he does, which to his simpleton little mind never seems to be enough.

Catch phrase: Just plain Whopper-Jawed or Twanglefusted!Bubba Dean is an avid monster-truck enthusiast and a flatulent bean-eating aficionado. He’s a handier than a pocket on a t-shirt when it comes to fixin’ things that are just plain twanglefusted, or at least so he thinks!

Bubba Dean is totally OCD (Obsessively Constructin’ with Duck tape) and is happiest when he’s fixin’-ana-buildin’ things whether they need a fixin’-ana-buildin’ or not. He always keeps a roll of duck tape handy in back trousers pocket and will jerry-bob or jimmy-rig most anything if he gets the chance.

He just has the plain know-how to do “gitter-dumb” in typical redneck style.

Cousin Beanie

Catch Phrase: - Ish-biddley-otten-dotten-ba-ba-ska-deetten-datten!Ten Thousands years old, Beanie is a vain, selfish, sarcastic, overconfident, cynical semi-evil Genie who hates most everything, or anyone, and would kick a bucket of puppies if he had the chance. Problem is, he can’t be as evil as he wants to be until he’s freed from the spell that binds him to his new masters, which will only happen when he grants them “all 30 wishes”.

Beanies only desire is to be set free from his spell, and the only thing on his mind is how he can coax, or trick, the idiots who found him into wishing for all 30 wishes before they drive him crazy.

But when the wishes backfire on him, as they always seem to do, one after the other, he learns from his blunders, or at least he says he does.

Catch Phrase: OOGA-BOOGA! (In a cute little girl’s squeaky voice)Bigfoot is a “cute and cuddly”, giant-sized wild girl-foot named Betty. And like any self-respecting girl, she likes to wear the latest fashions in loincloths, makeup, perfume, hair products, and toenail polish.

Betty is a lonely, shy, elusive girl-foot that has a secret crush on Bubba Dean. She bangs on trees and grunts to communicate and swings through trees to get around.

And whenever she gets a chance, she secretly helps the Bubbas while spying on her one and only true love, Bubba Dean, who thinks Bigfoot is stalking and trying to eat him.


StaggzCatch Phrase: Any random TV or movie line, e.g. You lookin’ at me? Lucy, I’m home! I’ll be back!A real recluse, Staggz is a simple-minded deer that doesn’t get out much. He has a one-track mind and spends most of his time with his head stuck through a hole in the Bubbas’ trailer house wall watching TV.

Staggz watches so much TV in fact that he’s a walking TV guide who speaks in TV sitcom and movie clichés. But whenever a wish goes awry, he always jumps into middle of things hooves deep and tries to help the Bubbas make it right, at least for as long as his attention span will let him, which is about the length of a commercial. I’ll be back in 2-n-2…

All Bubba Jo ever wants to do is have fun, and most times that means doing

something stupid or dangerous. Taking advantage of Bubba Jo’s insatiable hunger

for excitement and naive ability to throw caution to the wind, Beanie can always find

a way to trick Bubba Jo into wishing for something ridiculous.

Of course Bubba Dean and the rest of Belly Acres clan always suffer the consequences

of his mindless actions. Why? Because Beanie is a semi-evil Genie bent on semi-evil

Genie domination, that’s why! But Bubba Dean with his knack for fixing things always

comes to the rescue of his silly hilly-billy brother and the rest of Belly Acre clan.

Bubba Deans endless supply of duck tape and other impractical tools aren’t really

going to fix the problem at hand, but just as good fortune would have it, a solution

seems to pop up out of nowhere. So with a little gitter-dumb luck, lots of laughs and

fun for everyone, the Bubbas turn Belly Acres back into the happiest place on earth.

However, the wish usually backfires on Beanie, teaching him a little lesson in humility.

But does Beanie ever learn? Heck no! Each episode brings with it one big wacky-

wish-gone-wrong adventure after another, and it always comes back to bite Beanie

in the butt.

Tater-Chunkin’ TimeIt’s Belly Acres’ 1st Annual Pa-tater Chunkin’ Contest, and the Bubbas can’t wait to enter the competition. Beanie tricks the brothers into wishing for a spuds-zooka pa-tater cannon, and things quickly get out of hand.

All this tater-chunkin’ power goes straight to Bubba Jo’s head, and he goes berserk, launching taters into the air everywhere, creating tater-sized craters all over Belly Acres. But when Bubba Dean gets hit in the noggin by a stray tater, he comes to his senses and realizes that Beanie has pulled a fast one on them.

Unfortunately it might be too late! Bubba Jo has become a tater-chunkin’ maniac. In order to defend the family honor and get him to stop, Bubba Dean must use his quick wit and duck taping skills to get rid of all the taters and tater sized craters before Bubba Jo does anymore damage to Belly Acres and unfairly wins the contest.

I Wish It Were MondayHowever, the Bubbas didn’t say which Monday, and poof, Beanie sneakily sends them back to a Monday in the 1600’s.

When the Bubbas meet King Arthur, in typical gitter-dumb style, they are knighted as the kingdom’s duck tape knights of the tater table, defenders of taters everywhere. Of course, they must battle in the name of the Tater King and his court against the Evil Black Tater Knight to save his daughter and damsel in distress, the Tater Princess.

Will the Bubbas use another wish to get back to their own time, or will Bubba Dean use his quick wit and duck taping skills to trick Beanie into sending them back; and which Monday in time will it be this time?

Spuds BowlTater-Ball season is here, and Bubba Jo, the biggest tater of them all, can’t wait!

A gigantic tater-ball fanatic, he’s always wanted to win the highly coveted diamond encrusted Golden Tater Peeler, and the only way to do it is to play for a pro-tater team during the Super Spuds Bowl.

Thanks to Beanie, poof, Bubba Jo gets his wish, and with Bubba Dean as his coach, the two taters are able to pull off the biggest upset in tater-ball history.

They win the Super Spuds Bowl and the highly coveted diamond encrusted Golden Tater Peeler, and in typical gitter-dumb style, they do it with lots of fun, duck tape and a simple pa-tater dream. But not without giving Beanie a good mashed pa-tater whoopin’ first.

Tater WarpWhen the Bubbas visit Belly Acres’ new amusement theme park “Tater World”, they find out that they are not old enough to ride on the most wickedly awesome extreme ride of all time, the super tater-coaster “Spuds-zilla.”

When Bubba Jo makes the mistake of wishing he were older, (Ish-biddley-otten-dotten-ba-ba-ska-deetten-datten!), poof, Beanie is quick to obey his command. But unfortunately everyone in Belly Acres is affected by the wish and gets older, too!

In typical gitter-dumb style, the two taters are under Beanie’s magical spell, and they ride Spuds-zilla thousands of times. Exhausted and flatulent from old age, Bubba Dean begins to realize what’s going on when Belly Acres is not the lovey-dovey, fun and happy place he remembers. It’s just full of old farty, tired, grumpy pants, including themselves.

Will the Bubbas use a wish to make everyone young again, or will they set out on a crotchety old adventure of an old people kind to find the legendary Tater Salad of Youth?

Evil Has a Name “Mommy”Beanie’s evil mommy Genie is coming for a visit, but he’s told her a little fib, well, maybe a big fib; that he’s the absolute ruler of Belly Acres. Desperate for the Bubbas’ help, Beanie offers them as many wishes as they want if they’ll only help him get out of trouble just this one time, again...

Can the Bubbas and their gitter-dumb clan help transform Belly Acres into a desolate, sad and lonely place where Beanie is the oppressive ruler before his evil mommy Genie arrives? And what is an evil mommy Genie to do when she finds out that Beanie has offered the Bubbas more wishes than he was supposed to?

Oops! Looks like someone’s been a bad semi-evil Genie and is going to get a spanking.

In the NavyWhile staring at the stars one night, Bubba Jo wishes he could sail the Seven Seas. Beanie overhears his every word, and poof, the Bubbas get shanghaied into “The King’s” Navy (Think French Elvis type of character.) and end up working in the kitchen with the infamous French chef, Le-Pooface.

Chef Le-Pooface gives them every stinkin’ job in the book, even swabbing the “poop” deck, but the Bubbas love working, especially in the kitchen peeling taters and talking about all the wonderful kinds of dishes they could make: peanut tater-butter and tater-jelly sandwiches, baked taters, French fried taters, tater tots, sweet pa-taters, tater gumbo, etc… But when Beanie is thrown in the stockade, the Bubbas have to rise up in a pira-tater mutiny to save him.

Will Chef Le-Pooface make a big stink? Will the King force the Bubbas to walk the plank, and will he like peanut tater-butter and tater-jelly sandwiches, or will Beanie bail them out before they all sink in stink?

Somewhere Under the RainbowAfter a belly-soaking rain, the Bubbas see a beautiful rainbow and wonder if the Magical Pot Roast at the end of the rainbow legend is true. Beanie turns himself into a little purple Leprechaun and almost tricks the Bubbas into trading all their wishes in exchange for the legendary Magical Pot Roast.

At the last minute, the Bubbas discover the little purple Leprechaun is really Beanie in disguise and they change their mind. Instead they wish for a pair of magical dancing tater shoes for Mr. Leprechaun so he can tater-tap dance an Irish jig simply for their entertainment.

Tater tappin’ revenge never sounded or tasted so good.

Duck Tape OrigamiBubba Dean takes up origami and makes an amazingly enormous duck tape swan. Bubba Jo on the other hand can’t origami a thing to save his life and just gets all tangled up. But when Beanie tricks Bubba Jo into wishing the swan was alive so he could ride on it, (Ish-biddley-otten-dotten-ba-ba-ska-deetten-datten!), poof, and so goes the wish.

However, the beautiful swan turns out to be an ugly evil duckling in disguise, and is a fire-breathing terror that needs to be stopped before it destroys Belly Acres and burns it to the ground. Beanie quickly realizes that he’s created an uncontrollable monster when it comes after him, too.

Who can stop it, and how? More duck tape? Taters? Will the Bubbas have to wish it away, or will Beanie see the terror of his ways and save Belly Acres from total annihilation?

Taters in-ma EarsBubba Jo’s ears are so dirty you could grow taters in them, literally! In fact, when he has problems hearing, he asks Bubba Dean to look in them to see why. When he does, Bubba Dean discovers a little tater farm with little tater farmers working the land.

But when Bubba Jo whishes he could visit the farm and work the land too, poof! What, how does that work?

Will Bubba Jo use a wish to get out of his own head and will he ever want to leave the farm, or will Bubba Dean have to invent a Duck-Tape Transporter Time Machine to bring his brother back to reality…
