We have inside information that the Goonies animated series may get the green light after all.
Goonies Never Say Die!
As of October 2007, the latest news is that so far Sean, Corey, Jeff and Jonathan have all been approached and they are all very interested in the animated series ... so fingers crossed! See page 3 for press articles.
I will post more information as soon as I receive it.

Ok folks, as Ron and Pat were in L.A this week, they were able to enquire further into the animated series issue. Apparantly, Ron has received word from the "big wigs" that there is still a chance/glimmer of hope on this project afterall and the official word from the "big wigs" on the cartoon is...... "Goonies Never Say Die!"
So, watch this space for more information!!

Ron just announced that was the big surprise that we'd all been waiting for. See his post further down for his reply. Basically, a cartoon series was in the works, but sadly the project had to be cancelled. Nevermind, at least we have the fabulous Documentary to look forward to still

I have the prints tucked away in my desk, now we can at least display them properly. I'm waiting to hear back from Damon to get the official word on the project's demise, but it seems most of the news is out. Too bad about it not happening, since there was talk of Pat and I getting to be in it as well. I guess the only cartoon version of Pat in existence will have to be the one his daughter drew of him with three eyes. What a shame.
I always wondered why WB never considered doing a Goonies animated series. It would work wouldn't you think? It would be on the lines of cartoons like Scooby-Doo or James Bond Junior.
