SHORT TAKES : Popular Roseanne Barr Show May Also Be Cartoon Series

From Times Staff and Wire Service Reports

ABC is negotiating with representatives of Roseanne Barr for an animated show based on the highly popular "Roseanne" comedy series, an ABC spokesperson said today.

The Saturday morning cartoon series, tentatively titled "Little Roseanne," would make its debut next fall if an agreement is reached.

"We are discussing it but no commitment has been made," said the ABC spokesperson who asked for anonymity.

"Roseanne," now in its second season, is ABC's highest-rated prime time show and has frequently been first in the Nielsen ratings.

In the show, Barr plays a Midwestern housewife and mother, and John Goodman plays her husband. It's produced by Carsey-Werner Co., which also makes "The Cosby Show" and "A Different World."
