Kid N’ Play
Aired: September 8, 1990 – August 31, 1991
Kid ‘n Play was an animated cartoon series based on the real-life hip-hop duo, Kid ‘n Play. It ran for one season on NBC from 1990 to 1991. On the show, Kid ‘n Play were portrayed as teenagers, but their recording careers remained the same as in real life, as did their character traits.
The real Kid ‘n Play appeared in live-action wraparounds of the cartoons, but voice actors took over for the animated versions of the duo. The show stressed positive role models, teaching children how to get along with each other and stay out of trouble.
Tommy Davidson, Martin Lawrence, and Cree Summer were all star actors that contributed to voices for the show.
