Our latest animatic episode of our intrepid heroes:


The Characters:

Luke and Reece are identical and delusional twin toddlers whose very different personalities ignite into baby brawl smackdowns as they protect the world from dangers only they can see.

Reece SimonReece
Reece is such a rigid rule follower that when Mom commands him to, “Stay put!” he won’t move a muscle no matter what chaos unfolds around him. He’s obedient to a fault and incapable of lying. Some would call him a goody-goody, but few (except Luke) would call him that to his face. Much like the Two and a Half Men’s Alan, he’s neat and finicky, but he’s also quite clever, super loyal and protective of his Mom and Luke. However, when pushed by Luke, Reece will retaliate with his entire toddler ferocity.

Luke SimonLuke
Luke is a rebel bent on doing things his way and getting away with it. He acts before he thinks and will break rules when he thinks he knows better. Of course, when he can pass the blame onto Reece, all the better.

While Luke’s hair and clothes are always a mess, his bravery is pure. With a sly grin and a wink, he’ll win anyone over in any situation. (Those baby-blue puppy-dog eyes are to DIE for!) He’ll do anything to protect his Mom and brother.

While he has no problem hanging his brother by his diaper, you better not touch a hair on Reece’s head.

Mom SimonMom
Mom is as clearly bi-polar as she is a brilliant scientist. She adores her “sweet boys” and is routinely engaged in some random, extreme behavior. She can go from sweet ditzy Mom to barking barracuda in the blink of an eye. Mom is completely oblivious to the adventures of her precocious kids, and the boys (and viewers) are rather oblivious to what she is up to as well. This midwestern Mom can be extremely physical and relishes doing things the hard way. She doesn’t just make dinner, she literally hunts it. She’s a mix of the wide-eyed naïve Mom down the street and Sarah Palin.

Dimitri is an inept Slavic spy who will do whatever it takes to steal the DNA-altering baby milk formula (or so he thinks) that Mom developed for her twins. To infiltrate Luke and Reece’s house, Dimitri adopts lame disguises like Pablo the pool boy or Vlad the snoopy pizza delivery man that fool everyone but Luke and Reece. Some of his lamest disguises have also included Lilly the overly enthusiastic Tupperware saleswoman, Sampson the clutzy, long-haired personal trainer, Mr Putini the flamboyant interior decorator and Mrs Doubtflame the nanny with an abnormally large and undulating growth on her neck. Dimitri mistakes the costumed boys as competing spies who always get the best of him. Regardless of the pain Luke and Reece inflict on him, he always comes back for more.



Jeanne Simon
