Celebrities: Children's Entertainment

Children's books, children's movies, children's TV shows, children's records: they mean big $$$, and celebrities are ka-chinging in. Can you distinguish between the real and fake items in this list?

  1. Paul McCartney, jealous of Ringo Starr's success narrating "Thomas The Tank Engine", has his own TV show for youngsters, "Heather, The One-Legged Whore".
  2. Selfish Dallas Cowboy, Terrell Owens, has written a book for kids: "Little T Learns to Share". He's already planning the sequels: "Little T Learns What Not to Say" and "Little T Learns To Say I'm Sorry".
  3. Contemporary folk artist, Beth Orton, has recorded an English 'books on tape' version of Dr. Seuss: "Orton 'Ears An 'Oo".
  4. Before his untimely death, Spalding Gray was developing a monologue aimed at children, "Billygoat? Yes. Gruff? No!"
  5. Devo has created Devo 2.0, a group of kids who play family-friendly versions of old Devo songs.
