Page 32 The Sallna Journal — Sunday, November 22,1981 Cartoon focuses on endangered species By KENNETH R. CLARK ; NEW YORK (UPI) - Lee Mendelson, who haa put together 25 "Charley Brown" shows for CBS and therefore should know some; thing about animation, wants no truck with Bugs Bunny, the coyote- torturing Road Runner or other cartoon thugs that pass for entertainment in children's programing. "I am just sick and tired of what I see on Saturday morning television and the lack of what I see on prime time television," he said. "Saturday morning animation is quite violent... chil- \[ dren see problems being solved by vio- "lence and I don't see how they can dis- | cern that this is just joking." • Peggy Charon, of the national watch*dog group called Action for Children's r Television, has been saying that for -years, but Mendelson is in a position to • do something about it. • Animated creation In joining the fight, he is putting General Mills' production money ' where his mouth is. Under that sponsorship, Mendelson will bring his latest animated creation to CBS Monday at 7:30 p.m., and the little animals it will • feature bear no resemblance to Tom • and Jerry. • They are members of a growing club • — the endangered and extinct species ;• — and they are gathered to argue their ' case for the right to exist in their last •' stronghold of survival which is a place : called "No Man's Valley." .' "Ironically, it has been man's vio- ' lence that has created the endangered species," Mendelson said, "so in a way it's a form of violence... There is one Galapagos turtle left in the world. , There are 20 California condors, and relatively speaking, there are only a few Pandas left in China. "It's bettter to do an entertaining show about endangered species and entertain and inform and get something .positive than for children to spend a half hour watching animated cartoon ^characters hitting each other over the *-head." - If : Mendelson is the creator of "No Man's Valley," Desiree Goyette is its •oul. . ;The beautiful blonde actress-songwriter-singer permeates the produc- :Role for Vaughn HOLLYWOOD - Robert Vaughn will portray Field Marshal Erhard Milch of the German general staff in "Inside the .Third Reich." The five-hour TV movie is based on the memoirs of the ; late Albert Speer, Hitler's chief architectural planner, wartime armaments minister and convicted Nazi war crimi- jial. -•The film is scheduled for telecast during the 1981-82 season on ABC. tion. She wrote the music, sings the main theme, serves as the voice of "Pat Passenger Pigeon" and passionately believes endangered species can be saved. "I think we have more than just a prayer," she said. "I think we have a real hope of saving these creatures. The more people become aware — children and adults alike — of the problem, the more can be done about it, and this is an opportunity to really get the point across. "Our children are going to be the adults of tomorrow, so perhaps if we could impress on them at an early age how important an issue this is, it can be done. She said her own passenger pigeon character tells the tale eloquently. "Passenger pigeons have been extinct since 1914, but she's kind of a symbol of what can happen to our endangered species," she said, "the time between endangered and extinct is very short." Mendelson said the span very well may apply to man as well as the animals he persecutes. "As we got into the show more and more, I suddenly realized that we, in a sense, are also an endangered species because we don't have our priorities correct," he said. "I think our time is short. I have become very conscious of how little time we have — as a nation and as a world — to start getting our priorities in order and start working together." "No Man's Valley" is his personal first step.
