Brooklyn Artist Sues Studio for Royalties

Kelly Denato, of Brooklyn,  is suing a New York-based animated cartoon studio, alleging she’s been denied royalties she’s entitled to for designing a character that became the namesake of a Cartoon Network show, Ellen’s Acres. She says in the suit that she was due 25% of all revenues stemming from book sales, merchandising and animated motion pictures like television shows. The suit seeks damages in excess of $1 million.
