"WishKid" was a Saturday morning animated series created to play off the success of pre-teen movie star Macaulay Culkin (of Home Alone). Nick McClary owned a magic baseball glove which, if punched three times, granted his every wish. Stories--which were introduced in live action by Culkin--revolved around Nick's wishes and the trouble that usually followed. Nick's best friend was Darryl, the only one in on the glove's secrets and usually became involved in the adventures. Nick was frequently harassed by Frankie Dutweiler, the neighborhood bully; other characters included neighbor Mrs. Opal, Nick's mom and dad and his baby sister, Katie (voiced by Macaulay's kid sister, Quinn. The show ran one year on NBC, with new episodes airing on the Family Channel in 1996 (along with the original 13 NBC episodes). Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Way better then Fairly odd parents.
29 December 2011 | by (Ma) – See all my reviews

I will always take Nick MCclary and his Baseball glove over Timmy Turner and his fairies any time. Timmy is a selfish jerk who never learns no matter how many times his selfish wishes go to far. Nick on the other hand has a conscience he uses his wishes wisely sometimes Nick will make a bad wish out of anger or not thinking like when he wished for new parents and got a pair of thieves for Parent but mostly uses good judgment and realizes his fault if he makes a bad wish With Timmy his godparents are his moral guardians and he has rules to follow If Timmy had Nicks glove that Dons't have rules all hell would break lose he'd be like Anthony Fremont in it's a good life. Nick will turn into a hero to do good and fight robbers Timmy never would do that this is a nice cartoon I still remember when it aired on NBC Fairly Odd parents ripped off some of it like both have a bully named Francis I also caught it when it was on Toon Disney.
