(also called G.O!
by fans) was an animated children's television
series made by the now defunct Sunbow Entertainment, a division of Sony Wonder, with co-production provided by Wang Films in Taiwan and Ravensberger in Germany. There are also international versions of the series called "Molly O!". Generation O! was originally called Molly O! and was created by James Proimos, Tim Newman and David Hale. Executive Producers were Carole Wietzman, Martha Ripp and Ken Olshansky. The Creative Producer and Director was Mike Milo and the Line Producer was Jodey Kaminsky-Cashman. Most of the episodes were written by Suzanne Collins.
The show's visual design was based on Proimos's unique style. Every episode had at least one song and music video, which would be related to the episode's plot. For example, in one episode Molly gets mad at her brother and ends up writing a song called "Girls Rule, Boys Drool" in retaliation.
This show aired from 2000 to 2002 on YTV and The WB. Kids WB aired it as part of their "Fraterdays" block. The band who provided the music, Letters to Cleo have said publicly that some of the best songs they ever wrote were for the show Generation O! Only 13 episodes were ever created. It never went into syndication. In Latin America the show premiered on Nickelodeon on 2001, but was removed on early 2003.
