It premiered over the weekend, on Saturday, September 8, on BET, and will premiere this Saturday, September 15, on Centric (10am - 11am) as a part of their Back-to-School Programming Campaign!

So this one's for the kiddies.

Titled Kasha and the Zulu King, and said to be a South African revival of Mark Twain's The Prince And The Pauper, the series description reads:

Kasha and the Zulu King tells the tale of an amaZulu boy who returns to his place of origin years after being given away, looking to piece together his past. Upon his return he forms a unique bond with the Zulu prince, with whom he shares an uncanny resemblance. The two switch places and learn an invaluable lesson in the process.

The series was conceived by Jai Husband, and features the voices of Kenny Leon, Jasmine Guy, Monica Kaufman-Pearson and Bobby V.

    Is this a JOKE? The stereotypes of plus sized women in Africa, of the woman worrying about "getting her nails did", etc.......

    I saw this (mistakenly, somehow) on Saturday morning and it was pretty cheesy. Still don't understand why all the South Africans in it had hood accents, but I guess some feel it makes the cartoon more palatable. I will say that the animation was good, better than I expected but the script was corny. I suppose they feel kids can't handle something smarter.

    "I suppose they feel kids can't handle something smarter."

    If that's the case, then I really wish they'd lose that mentality. Adults keep estimating how much children can and do understand, and insult them by dumbing things down far too much. Sometimes they understand much more than the adults themselves!
