Storyline

"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>

***:a truly original & interesting series
26 April 1999 | by (New Hampshire) – See all my reviews

A fascinating story of a boy named Nick Mclarey who has this interesting experience with a wishing star that has lived on his Baseball glove,while he & his friend Daryl are basically the human-versions of "Goofy & PJ of Goof troop",although their are 2 problems,the fact that Frankie(the bully) gets mad when you call him by his full name (francis),& the rather gratuitous plot change of Nicks wish wearing out at mostly the most inopportune of times during the episode,(but then again many show have that kind of problem in somewhat-sort of different ways),over then that its very original & interesting.
