Explained at MSNBC.com and TodayShow.com by ME!

If this article I thoroughly enjoyed writing doesn’t make it clear, I have NO problem with the “bad guy” being the star of the show, even in a medium that’s supposedly Family Friendly. (Historical note not in article: Dastardly & Muttley on Saturday Mornings in 1969) Especially if it’s done well, and everything I’ve seen so far indicates “Despicable Me” is done well (jury still out on “Megamind”, but it’s still 4 months from premiere)
