Billionaire to offer animated advice

February 10, 2006


Warren Buffett: billionaire investor and cartoon hero?

Buffett, the head of investment firm Berkshire Hathaway Inc., will advise youngsters on financial management issues in an animated series now in production, DIC Entertainment announced this week.

Buffett's voice and likeness will appear in "The Secret Millionaire's Club." He also was a consultant to the show but was not paid for the work, said Debbie Bosanek, his assistant.

The direct-to-DVD series is about four children whose online auction to raise money for their youth center turns them into millionaires. They save the center and then turn to Buffett for investment advice.

The series will have 13 titles, with the first two scheduled for release this fall or early next year.
