Anti-bullying cartoon hits the big screen in BX

THE BRONX - A new anti-bullying cartoon took over the big screen in The Bronx with a red carpet event Wednesday night.

The animated flick "Bully Be Gone" was written, drawn, produced and even voiced by four teens suffering from sickle cell anemia at Montefiore Medical Center. The group says it knows how much bullying can hurt and wanted to help young people.

Leaders of Montefiore's sickle cell support group say projects like this are very therapeutic for patients.
