Coolman Coffeedan has said the following regarding his Coolman's Universe project, “In the not-too-distant future, I want my brand to be a household name in the way of The Simpsons, Adventure Time, or Hello Kitty. The reason I want this is simple; this level of acclaim will mean that I have achieved my ultimate goal – to put a smile on as many faces as possible.” The project roadmap starts with an interactive map on the website that begins with Donut World, followed by Dino World, and Wall Street Wasteland.
