  Search is on for real-life cartoon family
Updated 22 July 2002, 11.02
The cartoon family would be a cross between The Osbournes and The Simpsons
The search is on to find a real-life family to base a new cartoon show on.

  Click here for our tricky Simpsons quiz

The cartoon is likely to be a cross between The Simpsons and The Osbournes, say Nickelodeon who are making the programme.

And they are looking for any kind of family to base their characters on, from single-parent ones to more unusual families with loads of kids or odd grannies!

The response has been amazing already. There were more than 10,000 applicants in just one hour! Short to start with

The Osbournes has proved very popular both in the UK and the US
The Osbournes

The plan is to start off with just 10 short episodes to be shown in between other cartoons, such as Rugrats and Hey Arnold!

But Nickelodeon say if the show is successful, they could make it into a series and possibly show it around the world.

Families who want to be considered can apply through the Nickelodeon TV channels or via leaflets that will be handed out during Nickelodeon's Summer 2002 Roadshow.

And the winning family will be announced early next year.
