Los Angeles - The Osbourne family are to make a comeback to primetime TV in a cartoon form.

Former Black Sabbath rocker Ozzy Osbourne, his wife Sharon and children Jack and Kelly will be turned into animated characters in upcoming series The F'n Osbournes.

Created by Canadian animation house Cuppa Coffee Studios, the 20-episode series will be executive produced by Sharon and Jack Osbourne, as well as Adam Shaheen of Cuppa Coffee.

Great opportunity

Sharon said in a statement: "Teaming up with Cuppa Coffee has spawned a great opportunity to produce a unique animated primetime show."

Jack - who is expecting a baby daughter with his fiancée , Lisa Stelly - has previously ruled out appearing in another reality TV show after experiencing four years of his private life being turned into entertainment when he starred in The Osbournes from 2002 to 2006.

He recently said: "For as long as I live, I will never, ever allow a camera in my house again. After four years of The Osbournes, I felt I'd turned into a talking box of Daz soap powder."
