- “Girls takes down evil.”
Harvey Street Kids is an upcoming American animated musical action-comedy web television series that was produced and developed by Brendan Hay and Aliki Theofilopoulos for DreamWorks Animation, and is based on the Harvey Girls comic books by Harvey Comics. The series is a lot more comical, cartoony and slapsticky than the original Little Audrey theatrical cartoons.
The series set in the 1930s, following three friends, Little Audrey, Little Lotta, and Little Dot, defenders of the streets called Harvey Street, located in the magical city called Harvey Town, which kids rule. Audrey, Lotta and Dot loves to hanging out, having fun and fighting evil adult villains.
Little Audrey's theme song, Little Audrey Says, written by Winston Sharples and Buddy Kaye, was re-recorded for the TV series (especially the Little Audrey and the Harvey Girls franchise). It was arranged by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and sung by a female jazz singer, Kat Edmonson.
- This is Little Audrey's first television appearance.
- Unlike the original Little Audrey shorts, this series was given a TV-Y7 rating due to slapstick violence that may be too intense for children under 7.
- Unlike the original theatrical cartoons, and the comic books, Little Audrey is a lot more tomboyish, so she can do boys' stuff.
- The series marked the first time Little Audrey wears a blue dress, since 1958's Dawg Gawn.
- It also marked the first time Little Audrey wears white gloves.
- Little Audrey wears her blue dress, Little Lotta wears her green dress, and Little Dot wears her red dress with black polka-dots.
- Little Audrey, Little Lotta and Little Dot gained their ultra magical powers: flight, speed, strength, farting, burping and fighting-based powers.
- Little Audrey magically inflates herself like a big balloon.
- Little Lotta magically grows herself into a giant.
- Little Dot magically transforms herself into a colorful, multiple polka-dots.
- The series uses Tex Avery-influence style animation, as well as the Art Deco-style backgrounds.
- At the beginning of the series' opening sequence, Little Audrey was standing on the moon, instead of the boy, in the DreamWorks Animation Television logo. She starts dancing, as she starts scat singing, jumping off the moon, and floating down, into the opening proper.
- This series appears to be a lot more wacky, cartoony and slapsticky than the original Little Audrey theatrical cartoons ever was, as well as making use of a wide array of various zany cartoon sound effects (mainly from the Warner Bros. and Hanna-Barbera cartoons). In fact, this series appears to have the highest level of slapstick as that of other cartoons such as Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry, Inspector Gadget, The Lion King's Timon & Pumbaa and MGM Tex Avery cartoons.
- This is one of DreamWorks Animation's television series to use sound effects from various Hanna-Barbera cartoons and Warner Bros. cartoons, the other is Turbo FAST.
- Services in the notices range from toys, clothes, comic books, home videos, television and so on, indicating that DreamWorks Animation and NBCUniversal might be wanting to bring the Harvey Girls out of the vaults and start a multimedia franchise based off of them, entitled Little Audrey and the Harvey Girls.
