It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s … a Cartoon Warren Buffett Teaching Kids About Finance?

An Internet cartoon starring Warren Buffett is expected to be released sometime later this year. It’ll be called “Secret Millionaires Club,” starring America’s most lovable 2-D billionaire, along with four cartoon kids who cover the range of ethnic makeup and skin color in Benetton-ad fashion.

In different “adventures,” Buffett teaches the kids lessons like how to avoid debt while shooting flaming lasers out of his eyes (OK, I made that last part up). But the kids do get to invest in a local candy company while battling with an evil developer named Mr. Shady. (Why couldn’t have Bernie Madoff had a name like that? It would have saved everyone so much trouble.)

And in this behind-the-scenes look at the show, there are some amusing renderings of Warren Buffett as a hippie, with giant curly afro and tie-dye and all.
