[intro voiceover for the first season shows]
My name is Marshall Teller. I knew my new home town was going to be different from where I grew up in New Jersey, but this is ridiculous. Nobody believes me, but Eerie, Indiana is the center of weirdness for the entire planet. Item - Elvis lives on my paper route.

Thank you, little paper boy.
Item - Bigfoot eats out of my trash. Item - even man's best friend is weird.

The episode "Tornado Days" about a giant tornado called "Old Bob" credits "Old Bob as himself." See more »
I missed this great show when it was first aired in the UK and caught it by chance when Channel 4 repeated it during the summer school holiday. I was immediately hooked. Sharply written with in-jokes that adults will appreciate, while kids will love the scary parts, and also the occasional goofy musical number! What a shame that it was cancelled after only 19 episodes.
