Kid Notorious is an animated television series that aired for nine weeks (October 2003 to December 2004) on Comedy Central and is currently running on the UK version of Adult Swim. It starred Hollywood film producer Robert Evans as himself. Episode plots were often bizarre and absurdist in nature, featuring Evans as a James Bond type character. Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash also appeared on the show as himself. The show was directed by Pete Michels.

Characters[edit]

  • Robert "Kid Notorious" Evans (himself), a playboy Hollywood producer who finds himself mixed up in bizarre and absurd situations but never loses his cool.
  • Tollie Mae (Niecy Nash), Evans's loud and obese maid. Spends most of her time binge eating chocolate and lusting after Denzel Washington. Her catchphrase is "Not in my job description." Tollie Mae was named for Tollie Mae Wilson, who was Evans's housekeeper at the time of his marriage to Ali MacGraw.
  • Alan "English" Selka (himself), Evans's long suffering butler. A running gag involves Puss Puss farting into his face. Voiced by Evans's real life butler, Alan Selka, who is reportedly very much like his character in real life.
  • Puss Puss, Evans's beloved cat, who follows him wherever he goes; she plays chess and smokes marijuana. Puss has a hate-hate relationship with English which has included pistol-whipping, neck crushing, releasing flatulence into face and placing piranha in the sauna.
  • Saul "Slash" Hudson (himself), the former lead guitarist for Guns N' Roses. As in real life, Slash is Evans's close friend and next-door neighbor.
  • Donald Rumsfeld (Billy West), the United States Secretary of Defense at the time. He is depicted as a sidekick and poker buddy of Evans and Slash.
