Storyline

Trendy high school student Parker Lewis (a character similar to Ferris Bueller), for whom, as suggested by his motto, "Not a problem," nothing is impossible. Like his best buds Mikey Randall and Jerry Steiner, and his girlfriend Annie Sloane, his prime concern is achieving and maintaining coolness during the turbulent years of puberty. However, their efforts keep being thwarted by Parker's little sister, Shelly, and principal Grace Musso. Apart from various aspects of teenage life, embedded in a wealth of cartoon-like special effects and camera trickery, an episode regularly contains more or less subtle references to movies, politics, and celebrities.

Trivia

In the episode "Musso and Frank", David Faustino makes a cameo appearance claiming that Frank had given him detention even though he went to a different school, Polk High. This is the high school his character Bud attends in _"Married... with Children" (1987)_. There is a debate of whether this is actually supposed to actually be Bud or Faustino playing himself.

A witty, insightful series but with the right dose of humour
11 November 1998 | by (NSW, Australia) – See all my reviews

A superb series which only lasted for three seasons. Each episode was meaningful and whilst there were sight gags, the series developed into monologues about relationships, which was handled in a humorous and witty manner. The characters evolved and in particular, Kubiac went from being a brute to someone with a three dimensional character who actually had feelings and emotions.
