Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone

Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone - David Perlmutter
The perspective of cartoon characters, when their television show gets canceled.

Some might find this short story humorous. I don't, though not because it doesn't have its share of humor. It's a parody, if you will, of the world of entertainment networks, one that feels sad all the way, shadowing its funny twists.

There is money, narrow mind and ego, corporate power negotiations, threats and ruthlessness. There is no place for quality of a show, for feedback from the audience, for a kid's fun, in the decision making. Cartoon characters, the last ones out, fight their way and out of their way, for a few minutes on the air.
