What makes a toy or a cartoon character a favorite? What creates the buzz, the craze, around a little yellow monster like Pikachu, one of the infamous Pokemon? Join us as Alfred Kahn, Chairman and CEO of 4 Kids Entertainment, the company that brought you the Pokemon Phenomenon, talks to Howard Wexler, toy inventor and creator of the well-known game Connect Four, about what makes a great toy or a hit cartoon character, and America’s growing love affair with Japanese anime. Mr. Kahn will preview the next Japanimation Sensation: Yu-Gi-Oh!, which made its television premiere last month.
