Ashton Kutcher is the man behind Katalyst Media, and Blah Girls is the first of their many web projects. Blah Girls runs on a common blog platform, WordPress, and is an animated character gossip show meant to provide a teen twist on pop culture.

Keeping the overhead down by having cartoons get all the face time is pretty ingenious. New videos will be added twice a week, hardly enough to keep an audience engaged, but it’s a start. There are interactive features too, and a photo blog that grabs whatever is hot and adds one of the cartoon characters to the scene. Stats for Animated Gossip Blogs Trending: Older & Mild
