    Glenn Beck the cartoon? The conservative TV personality has joined forces with Icebox, the production company founded by TV writers including those from The Simpsons, King of the Hill, and 24, to create an animated series for his new Internet-only station, GBTV. The new venture shows that Beck is looking to attract viewers with some potentially entertaining programming in addition to his regular two-hour show. And for their part, the guys at Icebox are excited to cater to Beck's conservative audience. "Icebox is known for edgy, irreverent programming. Many of our writers welcome the opportunity to create shows the whole family can watch. This venture lets us take a little break from shocking and offending our audience," the company's managing director said.
