New Fox Biz Faces
November 4, 2007 9:00 PM
Fox Business Network had a number of new faces in its lineup when it launched Oct. 15. Many of them were animated, especially the "Happy Hours" anchor team of Cody Willard and Rebecca Gomez. But none were more animated than Hoofy the Bull and Boo the Bear, who star in an original cartoon segment that debuts each Friday on "Happy Hour," the apres-market hour that originates from the Bull & Bear Bar at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. They also appear on other FBN shows, on foxbusiness.com and on minyanville.com, the Web site that has been home to Hoofy and Boo and their humorous take on the economy since they were created by former Wall Streeter and Minyanville founder Todd Harrison. The cartoon versions of the Wall Street icons also are "the two sides of my personality," said Mr. Harrison, who believes in financial infotainment for everyone, from kids to sophisticated investors.
