Western Animation: Fugget About It

Fugget About It is a series that begain airing on Teletoon in 2012. It was created by Nicholas Tabarrok and Willem Wennekers for the network's Teletoon at Night block.

The series focuses on Jimmy Falcone, a former mob capo from New York, who found out his uncle and fellow capo Cheech is to be wacked. He sets out to talk to the don about calling off the hit, and ended up killing him. The mob calls a hit out on Jimmy, and he goes to the feds and they have him rat out his friends, before putting the Falcone family in Witness Protection. Jimmy ends up moving to Regina, under the new name McDoogal, with his wife Cookie, oldest daughter Theresa, son Petey, youngest daughter Gina, and Uncle Cheech, with RCMP Strait McCool overseeing them.

And if you think just because they've changed their names, means they're gonna change themselves, FUGGET ABOUT IT!

The series stars Tony Nappo, Jacqueline Pillon, Chuck Shamata, Emilie Claire Barlow, Danny Smith, Linda Kash and Ted Atherton
