“THE CARTOON THAT CAN LITERALLY CHANGE THE WORLD” – Tuttle Twins
How best do you relate economics to a 7-year-old?
Should your adolescent child even worry about the government?
Longer than I can remember, parents have stayed vulnerable to professional curriculum developers to guide their children. History is made more lenient, key principles completely excluded, and mental focus is now given to things of lesser significance.
Tuttle Twins comes as the first cartoon series to educate kids on abiding principles of freedom, economics, and government that both they—and their adults—actually want to watch.
Kids. And economics. And freedom. All mashed together in one show. In a cartoon. And with a healthy dose of comedy, of course. 🙂
The Tuttle Twins show, based on the best-selling books, is the first of its kind cartoon series that aims to instruct while entertaining. The series is currently in development (with the pilot episode coming soon!), and we need your help to bring it to life.
WHY ARE WE REOPENING INVESTMENT?
Last year, thanks to thousands of investors like you (in addition to other outside investors), we broke crowdfunding records as the top crowdfunded kids show in US history!
We are currently producing the first 6 episodes of the show. At the time, we wanted to raise enough money to bring you the entire first season, but when we reached the regulation crowdfunding limit, we had to turn investors away.
We can now reopen investment and finish funding season one! We are just 6 MORE episodes away from funding the entire first season of Tuttle Twins and with your help, we can do it!
WHO ARE THE TUTTLE TWINS?
The Tuttle Twins, Ethan and Emily, are the two main characters in a series of over a dozen children’s books written by Connor Boyack. The twins take the reader through their exploration of economics, law, money, the golden rule, entrepreneurship, and more.
WHY A TUTTLE TWINS SHOW?
We have a hunch that humans enjoy freedom, but that they don’t always know what that looks like. We believe we can help them cut through the noise of politics to find a clearer picture—then they can use that perspective to form their own opinions and make better decisions.
It’s a big dream, but life isn’t much fun without big dreams, right?!
When it comes to teaching their children about the enduring principles of freedom, many parents don’t know where to start. The Tuttle Twins books have sold OVER ONE MILLION COPIES and they do a fantastic job of introducing important topics and creating meaningful family discussions about them.
With screens becoming a more and more important part of our lives, we risk losing the opportunity to teach about these principles as time is spent on other (often meaningless) content.
We believe there is no better way to teach these important principles than by making them come to life on screen. The video format will enable us to simplify principles and introduce a level of humor that will inform and entertain people of all ages and abilities.
WHAT KIND OF SHOW WILL IT BE?
The Tuttle Twins series will be based on The Tuttle Twins books but will tell new stories. Our vision for the series is to mix the humor of shows like The Simpsons, Phineas and Ferb, and Gravity Falls with the education and family friendliness of The Magic School Bus.
The story will revolve around the Tuttle Twins, their Grandma, and her time-traveling wheelchair.
The vision is to make it entertaining for kids, and enjoyable for adults.
