Fugget About It is focused on teenaged nobody Petey Falcone. His father Jimmy was once the head of a large crime syndicate, but Jimmy just couldn’t whack his Uncle Cheech. The Falcones are now in witness protection, living in Regina, Saskatchewan as the MacDougalls.
I still don’t understand this choice, even after a few hours. I get that 9 Story Entertainment has a prior relationship with Corus Entertainment, having made the upcoming Almost Naked Animals for YTV. Teletoon aired another 9 Story property, Best Ed, in 2008. Does anyone remember Best Ed? Exactly my point.
Seriously, Teletoon, is this the best you can do? I thought Angora Napkin, Dunce Bucket, Ninjamaica, Nerdland and Space Knights Go! would be greenlit before Fugget About It. The show’s premise – Mafiosi in small-city Canada – isn’t unworkable, but I don’t understand what Teletoon sees in it.
I think this is a bad decision by Teletoon. If Teletoon had greenlit Angora Napkin or Ninjamaica first, I would have been fine with the Teletoon Pilot Project, but Fugget About It? I already have.
