NYU Stern MBA Candidate Teams with Animation Veteran on New Animated Series

MBA candidate Efrain Roman and veteran cartoonist Bill Wray team up on an awesome new animated series.

An enigmatic old lady and her unruly dog drive the neighbors mad enough to kill.

Puppy Love is set in surreal neighborhood where strange cul-de-sacs of imagination lampoon the weird and wonderful. Granny Goodness isan enigmatic old lady whose misguided gestures of kindness are driving the neighbors insane.. So much so, that they vow to end her existence along with her unruly dog, Toby.

Granny is the sweet little old lady we all love to hate. She applies rouge and lipstick with happy abandon before leaving home for the grocery store. After running numerous red lights, she uses a parking space and a half to dock her boat. After half an hour digging through her change purse at the register, she counts out exact change one penny at a time. All the while, her face is befuddled and content.
