It's a beautiful day in Mr. Buffett's neighborhood

Bruce Watson

As his recent Goldman Sachs bonanza demonstrates, Warren Buffett's reputation as a financial alchemist is well-deserved. While most billionaires tend to jealously guard the secrets of their success, Buffett has generally been eager to share his thoughts. This year, the Oracle of Omaha will take his insights to a brand-new arena: grade-school playgrounds.

Buffett -- or at least his animated avatar -- will host The Secret Millionaire's Club, an online cartoon designed to teach children about the mysterious world of business and finance. The show, which will consist of three-to-five-minute animated episodes, will initially run on AOL (parent company of DailyFinance) and will eventually appear elsewhere.
