Marion is now a crime fighting cartoon

The Adventures of Mina and Jack are based on the kids who interrupted their dad’s BBC interview

From the moment we saw her stride into her dad’s BBC interview, Marion Kelly was a hero in our eyes. When she appeared at a press conference wearing a trench coat and trademark pink glasses, we fell further in love with her and backed a bid for her world domination.

Now Marion has become the inspiration for a new animated series, The Adventures of Mina and Jack. The whole family is involved – the panicked dad, the running mum and the pièce de résistance, little brother Jack, is based on the real life baby-bouncer driver James.

Marion and James have now become a crime-fighting duo, helping their dad solve a case for the UN, much to the distress of their mother. Naturally – as art imitates life – they save the day.
