Young Designer Chosen To Revamp Classic Fashion Line.....

Paris, France-French fashion house Emanuel Underoo has announced today that 23-year-old Esteban Cortazar will take over as the new chief designer of children's cartoon themed underwear. He succeeds Norwegian designer Peter Dundas, who left in July after three seasons at the house.

"We were looking for someone young," Underoo Chief Executive Mounir Moufarrige explained. "The house needed a designer whose mind wasn't tethered to mediocrity by the loathsome abominations that were churned out in the past."

Cortazar plans on throwing out more classic lines, like Superman and Wonder Woman, in favor of heading in a new direction. "The old lines were all about heroes and one-dimensional do-gooders. Times have changed. People have changed. Today's children are into the bad guys because they are the characters with the most depth."

Cortazar's new line of undergarments will feature a host of both classic and contemporary villains such as Solomon Grundy, Mr. Myxlplyx, and Tony Soprano. Also, in addition to the standard small, medium, and large sizes, there will be a new husky size geared towards more calorically dense children. Sets of 3 100% cotton tee-shirt and briefs combos will run for around $800.

Mr Knudsen, perhaps they should hire these young men featured in this youtube link (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgCPHy3agO4).

Retro-nostalgia? Zoo, you have an uncanny knack for stirring up Solomon Grundy rumors.

I think most trendy kid undies will involve "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends" characters plus Naruto. Maybe also "Camp Lazlo"? Dang, that last one is funny...

luv,
Captain Underpants
