Hefner Gets Animated

Legendary lothario HUGH HEFNER is to be transformed into a cartoon superhero flanked by Bunnygirls - by comic genius STAN LEE.

The PLAYBOY creator has inked a deal with the MARVEL COMIC supremo to develop and produce the animated TV series.

Much of the action in the adult cartoon will take place inside the Playboy mansion where Hefner's crime fighting team will go into combat with various forces of evil.

Hefner says, "As a young man, comic books played an important role in my own life. I'm glad that a creative genius such as Stan Lee was around to take the appeal of the comic book superhero to the highest level."

Lee adds, ""As a fan who bought and cherished the very first copy of Playboy in 1953, it is an enormous thrill for me to be partnering with a man who has done so much to shape the culture of the times we live in.

"Hugh Hefner has long been one of the great communicators in our society, and I can't think of anyone I'd rather work with."
