I came up with this idea after thinking a bit further on the 'Chicken Little TV series' (cancelled or not) and realising what it could have ended up like; both the good and the bad.
The show I've thought up is called 'The Turkey Lurkey diaries', and it is set more around Mayor Lurkey and his life as a politician. It is basically a spin off from Chicken Little, but I hoping to use a different form of humour, preferably one that goes down a bit better (you won't see a character singing a Spice Girls song, don't worry). The major characters are Mayor Lurkey, his wife Gail and their daughter Emma. Here is some infomation about the characters;
Mayor Turkey Lurkey - The indecisive mayor of the small town of Oakey Oaks. Mayor Lurkey spends his time trying to do the right thing and stay popular at the same time.
Gail Lurkey - Mayor Lurkey's shy wife. Because she is a quail, she appears much shorter than everyone else; in fact, she is about the same size as her daughter. She is a kind enough bird, but she is constantly busy at the Hen's Society (an organisation for the female birds in Oakey Oaks, kind of like a Women's Group for birds) and trying to live up to the expectations the town has for her.
Emma Lurkey - The Lurkeys' seven-year-old daughter, Emma is the apple of her father's eye. She is a small turkey who looks an awful lot like her father. The main problem with Emma is she won't speak to anyone she isn't used to - particularly if they are dogs, bears or other carnivores, as she is afraid they'll eat her, despite her parents' constant assurances. Following a nasty amount of bullying in her first school, Emma has been tutored privately, and one of the Mayor's constant worries is how his daughter will adjust to the real world. Dwayne Crane - Mayor Lurkey's closest friend. A slightly dopey crane who spends his time walking into windows and driving the schoolbus. A loyal friend, but not the brightest crayon in the box.
Stu Gnu - Member of the City Council and Emma's tutor. Is constantly accusing Mayor Lurkey of being 'overprotective' towards his daughter, but teaches her when he's not in his china shop. Contrary to his name, he's actually a bull.
Heron Lehron - A french heron whos smug behavior and better-than-you attitude gets on Mayor Lurkey's nerves.
Beaver Weaver, Claire Bear, Bunny Wunny - Members of the City Council.
Roxy Loxy - A rich fox who uses her money to get the Council to 'see things her way'. Often her way doesn't allow for other people, and Mayor Lurkey often finds it hard to agree with her. (and, if you're wondering, she is Foxy Loxy's mother)
John Swan - The mayor of Oakey Oaks' rival town, Spud Valley, he and Mayor Lurkey often cross paths. Since neither of them like each other, this is never a good thing.
Cocky Locky - the Governor and Mayor Lurkey's boss. A very arrogant rooster who does not appreciate jokes about his last name.
Ruff, Tumble, Spot and Bother - Mayor Lurkey's bodyguards.
I'll post a few ideas if anyone's interested. Please don't be too harsh, as this is my first attempt at writing a series and I'm just curious if people are interested.
