A few weeks ago, we wrote about Rick Moranis at Gravedale High, and KillScreen256 raised the bar with a piece about Camp Candy. The next entry in the early-‘90s-cartoons-based-on-real-life-actors-and-comedians fad: Life With Louie. This Fox cartoon concerned the kiddie Louie Anderson, who was just as self-loathing and embarrassed about being overweight as the real-life adult Louie Anderson. The cheery theme song is a pack of lies—most of the show’s plot dealt with lil’ Louie trying to connect with his distant, disinterested, hateful father. It was based on fact – in real life, Anderson had a frightening, even physically abusive home life. Maybe not the best idea for a cartoon, Louie.
