CHONKER AND LIL
I give this script 3.5 out of 5 stars. It has potential. Author has written fun characters with a diversity of cultures, in this case animal groups - even a flying squirrel. It is a colorful script and the young cat, Chonker, is very likable as is her vital, talent-driven Lil' Friend. Singing, positive rap lyrics and holding hands all suggest friendship and breaks barriers. Shooting for the stars is a good goal. This script has value which is why I would have liked to believe the Chonker really understands herself and accepted herself in the end. Recommended for ages 8 to 12. Reviewed by Juror #11.

Chonker is a cat, bigger than most, navigating her new life at Hollywood Elementary School after moving from Farmington for her mom's new job. She meets and quickly befriends Lil' Friend, who is a talented musician and helpful guide for life in the glitzy town of Hollywood. Lil' Friend inspires Chonker by showing her that bullying doesn't have to stop you from thriving. Chonker's parents, and all the adults on the show, support her with empathy and knowledge. The other students at Hollywood Elementary School are a diverse mix of animals and backgrounds, proving that what makes you different makes you special. Through these endearing and relatable characters we learn about real-world issues that children confront everyday like bullying, growing older, and body positivity.
