Cartoon Musical Inspires Kids to Care for Creation this Earth Day, 4/22/14

VENICE, Az., April 17, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- "It is never too late. God's world has incredible healing powers; and human choices can change the tide in global warming. Within a single generation, we could steer earth toward our children's future. With  God's blessing and help, that generation can begin now." -- His All Holiness Bartholomew I, Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople

From the Orthodox church and Christianity's eldest voice comes a progressive view -- that man should respect the views of scientists, care for creation, and to do otherwise is "a sin."

At this moment in history, there is an immediate urgency to stabilize the climate. And "The Power of Poop (and other ways to save the world!)" is a half-hour cartoon musical with the big ambition of inspiring children to do their part - and to enjoy the process too.

For a two minute sample, please view this clip. For queries, to see the entire film for review purposes, or to interview the filmmaker, Denis Thomopoulos, please contact Amy Thomases.

About Denis and Hippo Works
Denis Thomopoulos turned a Masters degree from Oxford into an early career working for world-renowned filmmakers David Puttnam and Irwin Winkler - only to realize his heart was in cartooning and the environment.

So Denis took a red hippo named Simon he'd drawn for a best-selling t-shirt in college and made him the star of his new eco animation studio, Hippo Works. Denis has syndicated and licensed Simon along with a host of animal characters to companies such as AOL, National Geographic Kids, Paramount Vantage, Clear Channel, among others.

"The Power of Poop (and other ways to save the world!)" is his first half-hour cartoon, with purchases of the film saving 1000 sq. ft. of jungle through Conservation International. His characters also appear on organic products at Whole Foods and on an egg for Faberge's Big Egg Hunt in New York, April 2014, to raise funds for The Elephant Family, a nonprofit that protects the migratory corridors of Asian elephants.
