Biographie

Young trained as a television producer, but while working as an advertising copywriter he met partner Liz Young. After the pair married in the 1970s, his step son Richard Finn (now head of post-production at MYP), was having trouble falling asleep. Young invented stories about a teddy bear, which became SuperTed. Finn went to school to tell his friends the wonderful stories, which resulted in the SuperTed books, co-produced with TV Producer Young.

In 1981, Mike Young along with his wife Liz Young, animator Dave Edwards and producer Robin Lyons, founded Siriol Productions when the three men approached the newly formed Welsh TV channel S4C and secured a commission to produce an animated series of Superted. Due to the success of the initial series, it was re-dubbed in English and a special edition for the Welsh Office which instructed children on the "dos" and "don'ts" of road safety. The series sold well in the UK, along with the larger developed series of Fantastic Max, The Further Adventures of SuperTed and Little Dracula.

Young found it difficult to sell his series to Hollywood executives without a local presence there so in 1989 the family moved to Los Angeles, selling their right to Super Ted and shares owned in Siriol Animation to finance the move and to set up Mike Young Productions. His first production was P. J. Sparkles before moving one to were Little Dracula, Potsworth & Co. and Hot Rod Dogs and Cool Car Cats (co-produced with the Dave Edwards Studio),THE COMPANY PRODUCED PET ALIEN (52 HALF-HOUR EPISODES), JAKERS THE ADVENTURES OF PIGGLEY WINKS (Which won seven Emmys. British Academy Award, Growing Up Creepie, He-Man Masters of the Universe, (one Emmy win), Quantum Ray (Pulcinella winner), Bratz (TV series and six full length DVD movies), Chloe's Closet, Dive Olly Dive, Toddworld, The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus (Universal Studios), The Secret Garden (ABC TV Network). Current shows in production include Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake, three stereoscopic Zhu Zhu Pets movies, DaGedar, Lalaloopsy, series two of Chloe's Closet, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, SACHIN Tendulkar's Master Blasters and Little Archie's.

His company has also now created a series of caricatures at Cardiff City Stadium.

L'histoire se déroule aux États-Unis en 1962. Frank Vallelonga, surnommé "Tony Lip", un videur italo-américain de New York, cherche un emploi après la fermeture de la Copacabana, la boîte de nuit où il travaillait, pour rénovations. Il est invité pour une entrevue par le docteur Don Shirley, un excentrique pianiste noir d'origine jamaïcaine, qui cherche un chauffeur pour une tournée de huit semaines à travers le Midwest et le Sud profond. Don engage Tony grâce à ses références. Ils partent et prévoient de revenir à New York pour le Réveillon de Noël. Le label de Don donne à Tony une copie du Green Book, un guide pour les voyageurs afro-américains indiquant des motels, des restaurants et des stations-service qui autorisent la visite de personnes de couleur.

In the Forest of Burzee, where many immortals live (such as Knooks, fairies, and nymphs), their leader, Ak, the Master Woodsman of the World (governor of all forests), finds a human baby abandoned and places him in the care of the lioness, Shiegra. A wood nymph named Necile thereupon adopts the baby; later named Nicholas. Meanwhile, a shapeshifting pixie named Wisk is catapulted to Burzee over the mountain where the evil Awgwas live. When Nicholas reaches young adulthood, Ak shows him how mortals live, giving him a magic sash that makes him invisible. Nicholas sees that the humans, mostly the children, live cruel and unfair lives, mostly in poverty or child abuse (enforced by the Awgwas). Eventually, Nicholas and Wisk move to a spot near both Necile and the humans. The Knooks build a house for him, and Necile gives him a cat, whom he names Blinky. Nicholas travels to a village, in which he stops a baby from crying, and a girl named Megan talks for the first time. To help the children, Nicholas carves a toy cat. One day in winter, Ethan the Cripple, a boy from a village, travels to his house to bring him a leaning stick. He nearly freezes to death, but Nicholas takes him into his house, much to the disappointment of King Mogorb, leader of the Awgwas. When he meets Blinky, Nicholas gives him the toy cat.
