Set your Tivo, kids! From the department of answered prayers comes news that John Oates of Hall & Oates is readying a cartoon about his superpowered moustache entitled J-Stache! As laid out in a two-minute trailer, Oates is portrayed as a modern-day family man who finds himself enticed back to the rock star life by his mustache, which is voiced by comedian Dave Attell. The pilot, which is estimated to be between six and 10 minutes long, is said to feautre the following awesome plot:
Oates is opening a new wing of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame that focuses on mustachioed musicians. Suddenly, a dying David Crosby appears and with his last breath warns Oates of a mysterious secret group of mustache wearers bent on killing other mustache wearers. As actor Tom Selleck attempts to escape from the latest murder scene, Oates summons his own mustache with a fist pump that simultaneously changes his clothes from conservative attire to pink pants and white boots.
Independent publisher Primary Wave Music, which owns a majority stake in most of the biggest hits in the Hall & Oates catalog, is currently shopping the toon, with plans for it to either go straight onto a network or launched via the Web. (Who would’ve thought that Hypeful would post two Hall & Oates-related stories in the span of a week?)
