Unicorn Boy takes top honors...

ICTV's first cartoon, Unicorn Boy, has won top honors in two categories in the PEGASYS local access awards presented by Time Warner Cable.

The program was named winner of the "Best Educational Access" and the Best Comedy/Variety awards. Time Warner will send Unicorn Boy to represent Ithaca in a national competition, the Hometown Awards, to be announced in July in Boston, Massachusetts.

If you haven't seen Unicorn Boy, you should (where's your TiVo?). In the meantime, here's a description from ICTV:

Unicorn Boy stars Dwayne, an awkward middleschool student who had the unfortunate luck of being born with a horn growing out of his head. Dwayne just wants to fit in with everybody else, but things just never seem to go his way. Maybe it's because of his best friend Perry, an acerbic nerd whose hairbrained plans always seem to end in disaster. Maybe it's because of Uncle Kev, his seventeen year old uncle / guardian who is on a constant a power trip. Or maybe it's because of his basketcase friend Fat Tom or the talking balloon Squeaks who Dwayne always relies on for advice. Naaah, who are we kidding? It's because he has a friggin' horn growing out of his head!

The winning episode was produced by Mike Wechsler and Pete Berg.
