Cartoon Production Information:


Back in the days before cartoons decided to develop a social conscience, Beverly Hills Teens taught the kids at home that classic 80's mantra, "Greed is good." Adding a bit more sass to the classic Richie Rich formula, this weekday syndicated show featured the wealthiest teens on the planet: beautiful blonde lead Larke, her boyfriend Troy, boy genius Chester, arrogant Pierce Thorndyke, gossipy Switchboard, surfer dude Radley, African-American beauty Chanel, southern belle Tara, and ultra-bratty Bianca, who wanted to steal Troy from Lark. The rest of the cast included Bianca's manservant Wilshire, rockers Jett and Gig, pink poodle Fifi, and Pierce's back-talking pocket computer, the CAD unit.

The premise was simple: the kids were rich, and they bought things. The series centers around the lives, loves, and longings of a group of typical fun-loving teenagers, from Radley the surfer-dude to the arrogant Pierce, who just happen to be disgustingly wealthy. Whether riding in the back of stretch limousines or maxing out their credit cards on clothes, the teens always managed to find the kinds of adventures only the fabulously wealthy could ever afford.

Well, kids, money can buy many things, but it can't buy ratings. Beverly Hills Teens ran for only one season in syndication, crushing the dreams of legions of young capitalists. Their disappointment was eased when the spirit of the Beverly Hills Teens lived on in shows like Beverly Hills 90210 and the film/TV series Clueless.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
