When THE HOBOKEN CHICKEN EMERGENCY first aired on TV, the only part I liked was the credits which were shown over drawings I had done for the book. I was watching on the set in my office, and Jill was downstairs, watching on the set in hers. At the midpoint, (there must have been an intermission, or station identification break), Jill came up to watch with me, and found that I had switched channels, and was looking at a Dragnet re-run. Bored, you see, with the adaptation of my book. I received a total of $2,700 ever from the publisher for that movie deal, and I got about 7 letters from kids, all of whom said the same thing: ""I bet you had nothing to do with that TV show."" Adults tend to get excited about it, and pretend they like it.
At any given time there are options taken on certain books of mine. The possiblity that a Hollywood company will actually make something, and that it will be any good, is remote. However, I will take your money, if you're in that line of work, and want to try.
