It’s a New Year and we are at long last launching It’s Mackie’s World. 2018 is the year of educating the world about the extraordinary Mackie and his challenges and gifts he brings.
Visit us on Monday’s for an new Adventure with Mackie at “It’s Mackie’s World”. Enjoy the laughter and learn lessons that he has taught us.
Mackie Trivia Challenge:
Did you know that there was another cartoon that was inspired by another little boy with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome?
No peaking… do not read on before guessing. It’s the rules according to Mackie.
Hank Ketcham, the creator of Dennis the Menace, modelled the cartoon character after his own son, who had Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder or FASD which premiered Dennis made his first appearance in the funny pages on March 12, 1951.
Were you stumped? We often are. Mackie is full of trivia and he loves to play stump the grownup with his incredible library of questions.
Thinking about how we can educate about Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and other disabilities we launched It’s Mackie’s World. Kids with disabilities are breaking through with the barriers on television, in advertising and it is time to follow in Hank Ketcham’s footsteps and make a new cartoon come to life.
It’s Mackie’s World is now live.
We hope you enjoy Mackie’s adventures!
