Cartoon Concept: "Ronald McDonald & Friends" Direct To DVD

Hello All,

Over the years many of us have had the pleasure of being fed by the McDonalds franchise locations for decades now. As a form of gratitude I'll like to give back with this concept to benefit the "McDonalds Corporation" and their charity "Ronald McDonald House".

(Side note: "Ronald McDonald House" promotes access to health care, dental, and health education to children. )

I remember back as I was growing up in the 1970's that McDonalds ran a series of commercial spots. With live actors dressed up as: Ronald McDonald, The Hamburglar, Grimace (the purple creature), Mayor McCheese, Birdie The Early Bird, etc...

Now picture an exclusive cartoon series based on these McDonald's mascots. As a direct to DVD bundle with they're "Happy Meals" for children. The price point of each DVD can be anywhere from $8.99 to $11.99 US aside from the cost of a "Happy Meal". Although the "Happy Meal" will include a toy figure from the cartoon series be it one of the popular mascots listed above or otherwise.

Every DVD can include from 4 to 6 episodes that last anywhere up to 15 minutes each. DVD's can also include extras such as historical information about the McDonald mascots. Or how the cartoon series was made with voice actor interviews, etc... Each episode will have a public service message perhaps following the pursuit of the "Ronald McDonald House". That offers access to health education for children that can include something from the famous "Ad Council" as a partnership. Or other public service messages that are applicable to children and their families.

Every episode will include "Ronald McDonald & Friends" in their mishaps and misadventures that children of all ages will enjoy. Many of the episodes can include healthy eating habits about the importance of nutritious meals. Where one of the McDonalds mascots eats a tasty salad instead of a typical burger sandwich. Other healthy messages in the cartoon episode itself is the importance of exercise for children.

Another item of importance is that every DVD sold a portion of the proceeds will benefit the "Ronald McDonald House" charity.
If the first season of the cartoon series proves successful at McDonalds. Than a DVD Boxed Set can be developed to be sold through retail partnerships or strictly at McDonald restaurant locations. There can be also partnerships with DVD rental locations be it "BlockBuster or Net Flix". (If not the DVD rental kiosks of "Red Hat") To allow the DVD rentals of the cartoon series of "Ronald McDonald & Friends".

This is a great initiative to revitalize the McDonalds Corporation mascots for a new generation of children. That will surely enjoy them as I have when I was a child watching the McDonalds commercials.

Jewels of Truth Quotations & Favorite Quotes of The Month

Hello All,

I hope your enjoying the Spring season where available due to weather patterns. May you enjoy this month's trio of "Jewels of Truth" statements written back late August 2008.

Be well.


893) When acting upon a sensation of an intuition or the so called "gut feeling". It will often come to a person as a "Hint or Tip" as a form of guidance. Such notions must be respected and acted upon for the betterment for those involved. Otherwise ignoring your own internal intuitive guidance will be at your own Jeopardy.

Such "Hints & Tips" will always come to a person in a subtle and gentle manner. Much like a whisper into one's minds eye. There is never any fuss or muss involved in receiving such intuitive guidance. However the results of the breakthroughs gleaned are always profound. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

894) So few of us have the complete honor and sacred love to explore the soul of a fellow human being. Be it as lovers, friends, or family we do not fully delve into the spiritual being of another fellow soul. The reasons are numerous however the main reason is we have yet to explore our own personal soul. In accordance to Socrates famous by line of "Know Thy Self" we falter as a simple but yet profound entry point. In this regard this is the "Eye of the Needle" to be threaded first before we can begin to sew. If we do not fully recognize our own souls worth. How are we to value another person or in extreme cases Life itself?

That is the dilemma of reaching into another persons spirit. To explore and value their soulful divinity by thoughtful and compassionate curiosity. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

895) Our souls are like shooting stars as they pass through this realm we call Life. We have our moments than like all things mortal we lapse back into the life giving arms of our Creator. Much like a child running back into the loving arms of a parent.

Death for mortal beings need not be a tragedy to be horrified about in a cultural mindset. It is but a stage of life we all encounter in our souls progression in eternity. It is not the ultimate ending, it is just a beginning in another form of life to be regarded in a compassionate and sensitive manner.

Let go of cultural conditioning that does harm instead of uplifting the righteous. In all living beings that need to transition to their own promised land of the soul. It is our rightful next destination as incarnated beings returning wholly to our spiritual form in eternity. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


As the sun shines upon my heart, so may my heart shine upon others! ---The Upanishads.

Wealth consists not in having great possessions but in having few wants. ---Esther De Wall.

Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. ---Thomas Moore.
