Donutbird” is an animated show created by my 8-year-old cousin. (Yes, you heard right.)


This afternoon we gathered for a brunch, followed by a table read of the pilot episode!


Of course, there were donuts (from Stan’s)


We picked up bagels and spreads (from Sam’s)


Also represented on the table – lox…


…and fresh produce



I topped an oat half with cream cheese + lox…


…cukes, tomato, and yellow pepper…


…bits of an apple fritter + 3 of the “more unique” donuts…


…two had peanut butter – one with jelly, one with banana! As delicious as it sounds.


After fueling up, we sat and read…


…obviously my cousin was very inspired by a certain show:


Keep your ears peeled for “Donutbird!” If one day you ever hear the buzz about a new animated show on TV started by a kid, and people say “That can’t be true!” – just remember where you heard about it first…

That is so cute and wonderful! I can’t believe there is going to be a show on TV by your 8 year old cousin. He definitely has a great future in front of him! And it sounds like a yummy one too….. ;)

Awesome that your kid cousin wrote this. Amazing!

I think I’ve seen and heard donut a few too many times today. Seems I’m craving donuts…a whole box of donuts. Help me please!

Oh my gosh- that is awesome!
What a creative little boy. He definitely has big things in his future if he’s already accomplished this at the age of 8! Sounds like such a fun get together. :)

I love it when kids show their creative sides. It’s amazing how their imaginations work.

OMG….I wish her tons of luck!!! My husband is in the animation industry (currently unemployed) and knows how difficult it is to get your own show. We’ll keep our eyes open.

Love the hole-y spread! Everything looks so fresh and delicious.

Good luck to your cousin! I love ambitious children. Good for him!!! I’ll keep my eyes peeled for Donutbird. :)

Woah – get ‘em started young! Have you heard of ‘Axe Cop’? It’s a graphic novel conceived and written by a 29-year old guy’s 5 year-old brother and then the (older) brother draws the art – it is incredible. Proof that little kids can make something just as appealing as the rest of us who’ve been doing it for a living for years…


I’ll keep my eyes peeled for ‘Donut Bird’ — :)
