The animated series, McTucky Fried High, enlists a cast of food items ranging from French fries to peanuts to embody teenage students attempting to navigate the confusing hallways of high school. In addition to stereotypes and cliché high school fodder, the witty cartoon includes discourses on sexuality, identity, and what it means to be queer.
The unapologetically queer cartoon is asking for $16,000 to cover the cost of production, editing, and marketing the cartoon. The second season would include seven episodes aimed at furthering the discussion of LGBT issues. By using the medium of animation, the creator and writers hope to use the show as an educational instrument that appeals to all ages.
Each episode offers an endearing narrative on coming out and exploring one’s sexuality. If you need more incentive to donate, McTucky Fried High is offering exclusive stickers, T-shirts, and posters.
Check out the first episode below where the school jock, Henry Fry, comes out and changes McTucky Fried High forever:
