NOT YOUR "STEREOTYPICAL" NATIVE FAMILY

MEET THE DEERSKINS – AN UPWARDLY MOBILE MOHAWK FAMILY LIVING ON THE WAWKEETAWKEE RESERVE.

 

THE DEERSKINS ARE NOT YOUR 'STEREOTYPICAL' NATIVE FAMILY.  THE DEERSKIN'S ARE HIGHLY EDUCATED, ALOOF AND SOPHISTICATED INDIVIDUALS:  THUNDER, THE PATRIARCH OF THE FAMILY IS A WORLD FAMOUS TELEVISION STAR, HIS WIFE DAWNA A GIFTED SURGEON, HIS DAUGHTER SUMMER A SUPERMODEL AND HIS SON PHOENIX A BOY WONDER.

 

WHEN THE MAYOR AND HIS CRONIES DECIDE TO EXPAND THE LOCAL MINI-PUTT COURSE, THE DEERSKINS ARE FORCED OFF THE RESERVE AND INTO THE NEIGHBOURING COMMUNITY OF CHEDDARVILLE, A WORKING CLASS TOWN FULL OF FIENDISHLY KOOKY CHARACTERS.

 

TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE THE HOUSE THEY MOVE INTO ONCE BELONGED TO A NOTORIOUS BIKER GANG LEADER AND HE'S STILL LIVING THERE! TOSS IN THEIR WACKY NEW NEIGHBOURS, THE MUSHBURGERS (A FAMILY 52 CARDS SHORT OF A FULL DECK) AND YOU HAVE THE RECIPE FOR A COMPLETE AND UTTER DISASTER.

 

TRYING TO FIT IN IN THIS RACY LITTLE TOWN IS GOING TO TAKE MORE PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING THEN THE DEERSKINS COULD HAVE IMAGINED.   THE RESULT IS A HILARIOUS HALF HOUR OF OUTRAGEOUSLY WICKED COMEDY.

 

PHOENIX, HER LITTLE BROTHER, IS A SMART YOUNG MAN. UNBEKNOWNST TO HIS FAMILY PHOENIX SKIPPED A FEW GRADES (18 TO BE EXACT) AND GRADUATED FROM UNIVERSITY AT THE RIPE OLD AGE OF EIGHT. FINISHED WITH SCHOOL, YET TOO YOUNG TO WORK, PHOENIX SPENDS MOST OF HIS TIME INVENTING THINGS AND PLAYING COMPUTER GAMES.

 

NEXT DOOR TO THE DEERSKIN'S LIVE THE MUSHBURGERS...OR AS THUNDER DEERSKIN LIKES TO CALL THEM..."DA NEIGHBOURS FROM 'EL !" THE MUSHBURGER'S ARE THE STRANGEST PEOPLE EARTH. MORTY MUSHBURGER, THE FATHER, IS A JACK-OF-ALL-TRADES AND MASTER OF NONE. A COMPLETE KLUTZ, MORTY CAN FIX (BREAK) JUST ABOUT ANYTHING, BICYCLES, RADIOS, BOEING 747'S!

 

GLADYS MUSHBURGER, MORTY'S WIFE, IS A REGULAR SUZY HOMEMAKER. GLADYS ALWAYS HAS A BIG SMILE ON HER FACE AND A SPARKLE IN HER EYE. MOST PEOPLE THINK IT'S BECAUSE SHE'S REALLY HAPPY, THE TRUTH IS GLADYS LIKES TO THROW BACK A FEW, IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.

 

THE MUSHBURGERS HAVE TWO CHILDREN, BUZZ AND BUTTERCUP. BUZZ IS A N-E-R-D, AN ACNE FACED, FOUR-EYED, RAIL-MOUTHED, 16 YEAR-OLD LOOSER. HIS ONLY SALVATION IS THAT HE DOESN'T REALIZE IT. BUZZ THINKS HE'S THE CREAM OF THE CROP, THE CAT'S PARIAH, THE CHILLIEST GUY IN SCHOOL – THEY'RE NOT LAUGHING AT HIM, THEY'RE LAUGHING WITH HIM.

 

WHEN YOU THINK OF A SIX YEAR-OLD GIRL NAMED BUTTERCUP, YOU PROBABLY DON'T PICTURE T-H-I-S BUTTERCUP. BUTTERCUP, BUZZ'S BABY SISTER, IS A 6 FOOT 2”, 350-POUND MONSTER. MEAN AS A PIT-BULL, BUTTERCUP IS A SPITEFUL, VICIOUS 'LITTLE' CREATURE. HER ONLY FRIEND IS A PETRIFIED LITTLE FIELD MOUSE SHE KEEPS TUCKED AWAY IN HER POCKET (OR TAPED TO A CHAIR, TAIL-TIED TO A THUMBTACK OR GLUED TO THE FLOOR).

 

TOGETHER THESE TWO FAMILIES FORM THE BASIS OF WHAT IS SURE TO BE AN INSANELY WACKY AND OUTRAGEOUS ANIMATED SERIES.
