To a kid, every weekend is precious, so each time the final bell rings Friday afternoon, Tino, Tish, Carver, and Lor try to make the most out of the short freedom they have. Tino Tonitini, the show's narrator, is an average sarcastic kid with a good heart and isn't afraid to tell his Mom about his life (actually she usually tricks him into telling her). Tish Katsufrakus comes from an old world family and loves art, music, and all the things her friends find dull. Carver is the athletic one with a shoe fetish. Finally, Lor McQuarrie is the tom-boy. Together, they play pool, eat pizza, and be kids in every sense of the word. Written by
This is, in my opinion, the best cartoon show on the air today. As you watch the show you really feel for the characters, all of which are creative and fun. Watching their antics is a real pleasure. All of the characters are different and have unique personalities. Tino, Tish, Carver, and Lor are average kids who deal with common issues such as popularity and support for other friends' interests. The plots are relative to real kids and their situations. This is especially true with the show's view on "the cool kids". Though all the other kids desperately want to be among them, the cool kids really aren't that cool. This moral, along with others, makes the show morally educational while remaining fun and refraining from being preachy. I think this makes it superior to its main competitor Recess, whose moral lessons are mediocre at best.
