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
The buddies you never had but wish you had. I love this show!
For a kid's cartoon this is a total spin. It is not a half-hour of slapstick and spit jokes, instead it is a group of friends who live for the weekend. This has replaced the first episode of Pokemon (8:30AM slot) for me (well, the first episode of Pokemon is always a rerun anyways).
I am 22 years old and looking back at my youth I can see everything I missed by growing up. If I had a group of friends like Lor, Carver, Tish and Tino I would of been the luckiest kid on earth.
They eat Chili-Cheese fries, go to museums and play video games. What else to say? It teaches values and has fun with it. I love this show and I think it deserves a 10/10 for the effort. I pray for syndication!
If you haven't seen the show yet, take the chance and actually watch it. Don't watch it because I said so, watch it because it is youth at its best. Maybe you just have to be a 'grown-up' to truely appreciate it?
