Counter-clockwise from bottom: Molly O!, Eddie, Yo-yo, and Nub.

Generation O! was a cartoon from 2000-2001 about the life of a popular eight year old rock star named Molly O! (Yes, with the exclamation mark. It's her actual surname.)

Most episodes dealt with the fact that, despite being famous and acclaimed, she was still a child who had to obey her parents and follow the rules, much to her displeasure; and her struggles to fit in in school. ("What, your ears aren't pierced? Doesn't matter if you're a rock star. You are a loooser!")

  • Feud Episode: There is one such episode, with the feud being between Chad and Molly. In the episode in question, "Girls Rule, Boys Drool", Molly makes a song called "Girls Rule, Boys Drool" after she gets angry at her brother Buzz. As revenge, Buzz posts the song behind her back and Chadd hears it, damaging their friendship.
