A Gordon Ramsay
Stop-Motion Series??
Here's What He'd Look Like...

Merrick here...
Combustive TV chef Gordon Ramsay is now looking to establish his name as a brand in television comedy. Specifically, as a stop-motion avatar of himself in a series currently being developed by Cuppa Coffee Studios. Here's an embed of Gordon Prime at work:
Guessing they'll go for more situational humor/broader adventure when he gets puppetfied?
Cuppa Coffee's pres release on the matter reads thusly:


Gordon Ramsay has signed a prime time animation deal with Cuppa Coffee Studios, the recently Gemini-nominated Toronto-based animation house whose credits include Nick at Nite’s Glenn Martin DDS, a major new stop-motion comedy series developed by Michael Eisner and Eric Fogel, a second season of Rick & Steve for MTV sister-channel LOGO, A Miser Brothers Christmas for Warner Bros and ABC Family, two new seasons of Celebrity Deathmatch for MTV and Starveillance for E! Networks. While details are still under wraps, Gordon Ramsay, At Your Service promises to deliver a unique take on Ramsay’s larger than life personality with an animated action-comedy spin that will not only appeal to Ramsay’s existing fan base, but will also reach out to new audiences. While the idea of a professional chef, restaurant mogul and TV personality starring in an action-comedy stop-motion series may seem like an odd pairing to some, for Cuppa Coffee President and Executive Producer Adam Shaheen, it’s a recipe for success. “Gordon Ramsay has established himself as a true international brand. We’re taking the essence of who he is and having a bit of fun with it. Never before have we encountered this type of excitement from broadcasters.” Shaheen, who will be meeting with international broadcasters at Mipcom in October, expects to make a major announcement once details have been finalized.
Here's what Grodon's stop-motion personae will look like. The images is EMBIGGENABLE!!!

    love Gordon Ramsey...

    by maxwell's hammer

    ...but he's at his best when they just follow around with a camera and let him work his jack-ass magic. Both his shows on BBC America follow this pattern. His FOX show is just stupid and overly melodramatic. I'm not really seeing how his appeal will bleed over into an entirely different genre. Oh well, at least I've still got "The F Word".

    unintentionally first!

    I think this is going to be a lonely talkback.

    Bloody good chef though. Ate at his restaurant in Claridge's once. Fabulous.

  • Sept. 29, 2009, 12:44 p.m. CST

    Yeah his BBC America stuff is superior than his FOX shows

    by YackBacker

    He makes great television, that foul-mouthed mensch!

  • Sept. 29, 2009, 12:46 p.m. CST

    Don't care for the guy, BUT that's awesome.

    by ChezKing

    I've never watched his show, but I'd watch this. It looks amazing, and stop-motion clay-mation movies are always a lot of fun. A tremendous amount of work goes into them and the people are crazy talented. This looks great.

  • Sept. 29, 2009, 12:56 p.m. CST

    dude's hilarious

    by juice willis

    but I'd have thrown hot grease on the motherfucker for talking to me like that in my kitchen. Too many folks today hide behind the societal constructs of their titles, positions, etc. Fuck that. Fools need to be reminded that no amount of "power" or fame can supercede the fact that we're all basically still naked in the grass. He called ol' boy a chipmunk. Shoulda punched Chef Ramsey in the fucking throat for that shit.

  • Sept. 29, 2009, 12:56 p.m. CST

    Fuck Ramsay. The only true Gordon is GORDON SHUMWAY!

    HAH! I kill me! Seriously, where the fuck is ALF?

    A bunch of Chef's taking turns beating the piss out of Ramsey. A group beat down until he's puree.

    Love watching Ramsey go off on HELL'S KITCHEN

    by SpyGuy

    Yeah, the show is overly dramatic and you can guess exactly when commercial breaks are about to happen, but it's one of the better reality shows out there and the ratings back it up. Watching boot camp drill sargeant Ramsey push so-called chefs to their breaking points is a trip, although he's damn near killed uber-heavyweight Robert twice in two seasons with exhaustion and stress. The FOX legal cockroaches must have some serious health waiver clauses in their contracts. <p>And since this is the closest thing we'll probably get to a HELL'S KITCHEN talkback, I'm rooting for Kevin to win this season. (Captain and) Tenille seriously needs to shut the fuck up already, but with Robert gone, at least she talks some great smack in her between-challenge interviews.</p>

  • Sept. 29, 2009, 12:59 p.m. CST

    Ramsay has been totally discredited in the UK...

    by BiggusDickus

    His restaurants are losing money hand over fist following allegations of food being prepared off-site and delivered by van and simply heated up.<p>His Michelin stars are going south and to cap it all, he's been revealed as a bare-faced liar after claiming to have played for Glasgow Rangers as a professional footballer ('soccer' to you Yanks) when in fact he appeared as an unnamed triallist twice.<p>Face it - the bloke's an arse. If it wasn't for his oh-so-shocking profanity, nobody would give him the time of day...

  • Sept. 29, 2009, 1:05 p.m. CST

    He looks like The Leader

    by jim

    In his new series will he fight a stop-motion Hulk?<p>"Tenille seriously needs to shut the fuck up already"<br>Agreed, she is very annoying. Everytime she does her interviews she yells her comments. She needs to learn to use her "inside voice".

    It was the BOMB!!!

    I'd rather watch a Julia Child puppet

    by ThrowMeTheIdol

    Or a Guy Fieri one, who I know is not a major chef but he's amusing. Gordon's narcissism gets boring and comes off as a phony to me.

  • Sept. 29, 2009, 1:20 p.m. CST

    I politely disagree on Spitting Image

    by slone13

    <p>Thought it never looked right. The mouths never moved properly with what they were saying and the caricatures were just too extreme. Plus they flopped around too much. Even Muppets didn't wobble like those foam monstrosities from Spitting Image.</p> <p>It was fine for the Genesis video but a whole series of that shit was just too much.</p>

    oh and lets not forget...

    by emeraldboy

    this is same gordon ramsay who couldnt get it on in the bedroom with tana ramsay who is many years his junior. so he went off and had an affair with a woman who shagged jefferey arhcer and wrote a tell all book. ramsay called a very popular tv host a pig. hes a jerk. who wouldnt last two mins with that other obnoxious guy, paul teutel.

    This guy cracks me up and makes his show totally worth watching. Kitchen Nightmares is suprisingly addictive as well. I hope it is coming back as we seemed to have gotten two Hell's Kitchen Seasons back to back without Kitchen Nightmare in between.

    True Story: Friend of mine was at a Ramsay restaurant in London. Mid way through the meal, his wife went outside for a smoke, and then, whilst she was out, Ramsay came in from the kitchen in his white tunic and went round some of the tables to meet and greet, then back into the kitchen. <p>"You'll never guess what you just missed", my friend said to his wife when she got back.<p>"Gordon Ramsay. I know. I saw him get out of a cab in his chef's clothes, he went in the back door of the restaurant, then came again 5 mins later from the same door, got back in the cab and drove off"<p>Food was nice, though.

    Jeremy Clarkson.

    by Powerring

    Jez seems to be a car snob, but entertaining. He sure isn't mean-spirited like Ramsey. I'd like to see a hell's kitchen when some 6'6 260lb chef gets yelled at. And then he snaps. He swings his fist so hard, it breaks Ramseys jaw and knocks him out cold. Ramsey can then only critique the hospital food he has to drink through a straw for a couple months.

  • Sept. 29, 2009, 2:05 p.m. CST

    It would be funnier than Family Guy

    Whoever heads up FOX reality needs to DIAF...

    by TheMightyMonarch

    ...after watching the BBC versions of Ramsay's shows to see how it should be done. Hell's Kitchen and Nightmares give me a fucking headache between the quick cuts and bombastic soundtrack. Go back to a documentary style where you see actual people struggling with real problems, as opposed to screaming and dramatic music substituting for actual content.

    Of course he just visits his restaurants..

    by The Dark Shite

    Just 'cause his name's on the restaurant doesn't mean he's actually there. He owns loads! Plus his real job is probably the TV now anyway. <p> I'm pretty sure if I was busy making millions out of being a total prick,(like one of my former employers), I'd probably just pay surprise visits to shock the staff, go around the kitchen checking things are going ok, show my face to keep the customers happy, then fuck off & count my money.<p>

    . . . that he drives around and makes his visits while wearing his chef's smock. That's the cheesy thing. If he's an owner and not a chef, then he should just wear goddamn street clothes.<p> But really, I don't care. I eat at McDonalds.

    by BringingSexyBack

    Sure, you were one of the world's pre-eminent chefs. But there's one way, the smart one, to leverage that talent to make yourself a respected and successful celeb chef. <P> Then there's the other way. Make yourself look like a total douchebag and a joke, capped by Fox's Hell's Kitchen. Now Tom Colicchio, whose claim to fame is ... steak ... is more respected than you. What a meltdown.

    the age of the superchef

    by emeraldboy

    has come to an end. people simply arent interested in the likes jamie oliver, gordon ramsay or gary rhodes(where de he go? to the dole office probably) et al. I hate the new masterchef with a passion. masterchef professional was a terrible program. I got bored watching john and greg would go on about big flavours etc. I would shout everyones palates are differents you berks at the tv. and dont get me started on the favourtism agenda of john and greg that became so obvious. it was also obvious that Masterchef pro was a recruiting excersize for Michel roux junior. we dont do tv celebs in ireland. but what we do have is a show where the identity of the head chef is kept secret. there are three top critics. two restraunt reviewers and proper chef like say gary rhodes. to critique the food. The restaurant is real, the punters are real. the staff help the head chef in prepaing the meal. they dont like the menu they say so. chefs give advice on what the critics think too. it makes for fun program and each week if you have the culinary skill you can try the meal yourself.

    He's waaaay over-leveraged. He had to reorganize recently and put in a lot of his and his father's own capital. His whoring for Fox and other TV ventures is just keeping him afloat. Recently profiled in New York mag, I think, that's where I read about it.

  • Sept. 30, 2009, 12:42 p.m. CST

    thats father in law by the way.

    by emeraldboy

    ramsays dad was violent absuive bully of a man. and an alcholic. Ramsay said that he once he saw his dad punch, kick, beat and kick his mother. but she recovered. the family were so afraid that literally had to move from house to house quickly in london and they had to beg the owners not to tell anyone what happened. in case Ramsay senior found out where they where.

  • Sept. 30, 2009, 8:53 p.m. CST

    Ramsay haters need to STFU!

    by BlackPrince

    People go on Hells Kitchen VOLUNTARILY! They KNOW they are going to get told off: thats the point. Further, in Kitchen Nightmares, the OWNERS CALL Ramsay to come and help because the restaurant is hemorrhaging money and the cooks, owners, chefs in that restaurant owe it to Ramsay to obey what he says. He might have a personality problem, and if he acts that way everywhere he's an arse, but on his shows no one can say anything about him.
