Poor Lil’ Pimp (Brooks). The little boy just doesn’t seem to fit in at home in squeaky-clean suburbia. His only friend is a foul-mouthed talking gerbil, Weathers (Ludacris). Then one day, by accident, he runs into a dazzling ‘ho, Sweet Chiffon (Lil’ Kim), who takes him to a bar called Playground, a hip-hop wonderland where he befriends master pimp Fruit Juice (Mac) and is introduced to the world of pimping. There’s no place like the Playground and Lil’ Pimp calls it home. But his new life and the lives of his beloved ‘hos and pimps is endangered by the machinations of the city’s scheming, duplicitous mayor Tony Gold (Shatner). Unless Gold can be exposed for the rat bastard that he is, the Playground and the ghetto surrounding it will be transformed into a toxic golf course. And Lil’ Pimp will be forced to return to the horrors of life in suburbia.
Based on the acclaimed Internet animated series created by former rock musicians turned journalists turned directors, Mark Brooks and Peter Gilstrap.
