"I am a big fan. Thank you for investing so much of your time into writing Banana Chan for 20+ years. Live laugh Banana." -- A reader.

Yup, it's been 20+ years.  The idea bubbled up within me, while drinking Coca-Cola and eating ham-and-cheese sandwiches while among friends,
while we all sat in a corridor in a high-school, in the year 2000.  We dubbed that corridor the 'Corridor of Insanity.'  Other members of 
that group had great ambitious ideas for stories and cartoons and anime, etc, and we even had a conversation wherein we daydreamed about
all our ideas being on TV in the same cool "programming block."  But pretty much all the other writers in that group eventually gave up on 
their great original ideas, wheras I will never give up on the idea of wanting my Banana Chan scripts to become an actual show!  
                                 (Can someone tell me how/where to pitch it, though?)
