  Meet the Moores: Britain's Simpsons!
Updated 01 May 2003, 19.54
The Moores as they will look on TV
A real-life British family is getting ready to see themselves and their lives as a cartoon on TV.

The Leicestershire family were chosen from thousands to be the model for Nickelodeon's new cartoon.

Fact File
Who are the Moores?
Dad Robert, 50, second hand car salesman
Mum Tania, 35, an admin assistant
Son Jack, 15, keen DJ and runs a mobile disco
Daughter Roberta, 11, who loves Blue
Daughter Eliza, nine, loves gymnastics and disco dancing
Jemma, three, described as a whirlwind!

The TV channel was after a family which was a cross between the Simpsons and The Osbournes for the new show.

And they found the Moores!

They are made up of mum, dad and four kids. Dad loves The Osbournes, whilst Jack, 15, is hot on the DJ decks.

And one of the daughters, 11-year-old Roberta, dreams of meeting Duncan from Blue.

They sound just like your average family!

Hectic!

The search for the perfect cartoon family started in July last year.

The Moores were chosen because they have such a wacky and hectic lifestyle, say the cartoon makers.

And they were very pleased about winning. Mum Tania said: "We can't speak with excitement. We feel like superstars and can't wait to see our cartoon!"
