According to the press release: ""Dottie" of Dottie's Magic Pockets to Appear on R Family Vacations Spring Cruise LOS ANGELES, December 5, 2007 - Production company Pink Pea announced that the star of Dottie's Magic Pockets - the first children's program for kids in gay and lesbian families - will appear on the R Family Vacations Cruise to the Mexican Riviera, March 15-22, 2008."

How come there's no TV show for Orthodox Jewish kids in gay and lesbian families?

From DottiesMagicPockets.com:

Dottie is a wacky and playful woman whose house seems suddenly empty when her partner, May, leaves to take their son, Ollie, for his first day of school. To cheer up his mom, Ollie gives her a gift: a sweater with huge, dotted pockets.

When Dottie reaches into the sweater's pockets, she pulls out handfuls of magic glitter! She sprinkles the glitter around and -- voila! -- her living room is transformed into a zany funhouse filled with a gaggle of new friends to keep her company during the day, including: James the Flower, Randal the Beaver, Motilda the Mouse, Uncanny the Singing Can, and Wally the Wall.

Excitable, sweet, and silly, Dottie is also a patient and devoted mom and friend who enjoys playing with her magical playmates as she helps them solve their problems.

Is this show as great as it sounds?
