A cartoon version of the WB's Buffy the Vampire Slayer
is being developed at Fox Kids Network and could debut as early as February 2002, USA Today
reports. The new series created and executive produced by Buffy
mastermind Joss Whedon
will find the Scooby gang back in high school. "When making the primetime version, the cast aged so quickly, they got out of high school so fast, that [Joss] never got a chance to do more high school stories," explains Fox Kids exec Maureen Smith
. It's unclear whether Buffy
's live-action cast will supply the voices for their cartoon counterparts.
