"Bruno the Kid" is a vanity cartoon if ever there was one; another outing for Bruce Willis's nickname of Bruno, this sees him as a wiseacre 11-year-old with a very large and prematurely balding head (why his parents don't send him to the doctor is never explained) who's also a secret agent for GLOBE in partnership with cultured black English agent Jarlsburg - GLOBE's high command have no idea Bruno the Kid is, in fact, a kid, because whenever our hero communicates with his bosses he sends them TV pictures of a computer-animated man who looks remarkably like... you guessed it.
In addition to his voice and likeness, Brucie executive produced (with his brother as co-executive producer) and co-wrote and sang the title song - at least with "Hudson Hawk" he left the singing to Dr. John. Exercise for Willis's ego this may be, and not exactly original - but it's fairly entertaining fare as far as this kind of thing goes, and better than some of his movies. For a truly awful vanity cartoon, see "Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos" (which mentions the star's name nine times in the opening credits) or "Wishkid" with Macaulay Culkin.
