It’s probably for the best that Pamela Anderson is single again – she has a new cartoon series: “I’m very proud of Stripperella,” Anderson says. “She’s my alter ego — strong, smart and sexy and, let’s face it, a bit of a slut.” The woman understands her appeal.
- the upcoming cable series “Stripperella” features lots of cartoon cleavage and sexual innuendo — she is after all “Secret Agent 69” — but Anderson insists the show could be rated PG.
“It’s harmless. It’s only a cartoon,” the actress told Reuters in a recent interview to promote the series, created by Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee, the man who beefed up the Hulk and had Spider-Man climbing walls.
“We came up with a concept, and we just kind of made it really, really silly, and we both can’t believe it’s going to be on the air.”
The series is due to premiere June 26 on TNN, the Viacom Inc.-owned cable channel planning — despite a legal challenge — to relaunch itself this month as Spike TV, with a new slate of programming tailored to men.
The show’s concept is pretty simple. It centers on buxom exotic dancer Erotica Jones, an Anderson-esque character voiced by the actress who leads a double life as the masked superhero Stripperella. She’s a stripper by night, a crime fighter by later at night and the cartoon character even has the same tatoos as the real-life Anderson.
….In the premiere episode, Stripperella battles the evil plastic surgeon Dr. Cesarian, who is deliberately ruining the figures of supermodels and has “booby-trapped” his latest victim with an exploding breast implant.
….Anderson said her kids have seen early clips from her cartoon series but take it all in stride, with Brandon comparing her unfavorably to “Rugrats” character Angelica Pickles. “He said, ‘Angelica is a very good actor, a very good character, and she’s much more famous than you, Mom,”‘ Anderson recalled with a laugh.

That reminds me of the classic line from Night Shift: “Barney Rubble – what an actor.” I love that movie.
