A married couple living in a quiet neighborhood with not-so-quiet neighbors discover the joys and the pains (but mostly the pains) of raising a new-born girl in a not-so-perfect world. Darryl, the father, juggles family life with and a job that pays a modest salary while his wife, Wanda, stays at home and cares for their daughter Zoe, with help from their babysitter Bizzy who needs a turn-stile for the number of boys that she dates. Things aren't better when you're neighbors with the Bittermans, a family composed of a militant father named Carl who's always teaching his loud, obnoxious children, Rodney, Megan and Shelby, survival skills while his wife, Melinda, who seems to have an existential outlook on life. Case in point: it's "Rugrats" for the parents who were forced to watch it with their giddy kids. Written by
I've been a fan of the series since they started it on Adult Swim. I usually watch it every Sunday evening at around 1:00a. Honestly, it's about the only thing I look forward to.
The show, and the comic strip, bring out the joys and the real truths about parenting. I'm noticing this with my daughter and it seems the comic strip is dead on most of the time. A lot of people would probably agree on this.
I know they made 26 episodes total, but only half was aired. It was cancelled after only 1 season. Honestly, I hope someone brings it back as a series and doesn't abandon it. I'm awaiting (and hoping) the arrival of all 26 episodes on DVD.
