From Queens, NY in December 2011, Cartoonist and Creator, Richard Sirgiovanni, announces the launch and partnership in search of what he considers to be the next Big Thing in the music business and children’s television! Also a musician, Sirgiovanni decided to create something new by combining his two passions, which was Rock n Roll and cartooning, and created The Grimps! By night they’re 4 cool, charming, irrepressible musicians on the verge of stardom. By day, they’re hairy, scary and tiny. They lived 500 years ago, cursed by the evil Spectar because he was jealous of their music and celebrity.So he cursed and turned them into ugly little grimps, to be banished from society for eternity. Until 500 years later their friend and wizard, Magic Alex found a temporary spell to change them back to humans, but from only sunset to sunrise. The Grimps in some way is his tribute to his hero’s in music and had fun by writing subtle references to the history of rock n roll in the stories and names given for the characters. To go a step further, Sirgiovanni hopes to have many musical pop icons and contemporary celebrities as voiceovers of the characters for the show. Some that have already shown interest are: Peter Noone, Keith Emerson, Mickey Dolenz, Todd Rudgren, and Eric Burdon. In addition to the show, Sirgiovanni intends on producing original rock n roll music to be presented to the public as The Grimps. Working with Mr. Sirgiovanni on the music is Ron Alexenburg, former President of Epic & CBS Records. He’s responsible for launching acts such as, Michael Jackson, Meatloaf, Boston and The Black Eyed Peas. The Grimps theme song called “We’re The Grimps”, was written and recorded by Ron Dante & Freddie Cannon. For more information and to view the trailer, visit www.thegrimps.com
