Cartoons are funny

Carrey, Shandling Toon Into ‘Hedge’
Jim Carrey and Garry Shandling will make their feature animation debuts in “Over the Hedge,” a DreamWorks project targeted for 2005.
Carrey will voice R.J., a mischievous raccoon and con artist, while Shandling will voice Verne, a sensitive turtle.
The pair deal with encroaching suburban development and become friends as they figure out how to co-exist with their human neighbors and exploit their proximity.
“Over the Hedge” is based on a popular comic strip of the same name by Michael Fry and T Lewis. The screenplay is being adapted by veteran screenwriter Len Blum (“Stripes,” “Meatballs”) in his first animation effort. The film will be directed by Tim Johnson, co-director of DreamWorks’ “Antz.”
