Gwen and the Telegrams Script

As I was writing the script for Gwen and the Telegrams I started to realize that the script as a whole was pretty much the Jem episode "Glitter and Gold" witj Strawberry Shortcake and Rainbow Brite thrown in. I was wondering if it would be legal to just take that script word for word and just add these characters in. Would that be protected under that parody law?


  1. Fair use does allow for parody/satire, but you should still be careful. If you do a pure reading of it, make sure your actors are giving a comedic or satirical performance. One thing to remember is that a lot of those 80's cartoons were pretty formulaic, so it's not hard to come up with a plot that's "just like" any number of episodes. Find the cliches and tropes and find clever ways to hang lampshades on them.

  2. Thanks for looking out man. I appreciate it lots.

  3. My man Fred Perry does parodies in nearly every issue of his comic, Gold Digger. Each one is usually some referrence to 80s pop culture.
