The everyday life of Arnold, a 4th-grader in a nameless city that resembles Brooklyn, New York, who lives in a multi-racial boarding house with his grandparents and a motley assortment of neighbors and friends.

Intergalactic warrior Star Butterfly arrives on Earth to live with the Diaz family. She continues to battle villains throughout the universe and high school, mainly to protect her extremely powerful wand, an object that still confuses her.
Once in awhile, a show comes along that is distinctly different from ones that have come before it. "Pelswick" may just be one of those.
It's a children's half-hour cartoon show produced by Canadian animation company Nelvana about a 13-year old boy and his odd misadventures. Oh, and another thing, he's paralyzed.
Now, the unique thing about this is this is *NOT* the point of the show. In fact, it is barely mentioned. "Pelswick" strives to show that a teen in a wheelchair is just the same as a "regular" teen. Pelswick is in every way like a regular boy-- he has a crush on a girl at school, draws cartoons during class, and deals with the school bully.
Most of important all, though, is this show is *HILARIOUS*.
Through it's obscurity and unique humour, "Pelswick" is certain to entertain not only children, but people of other ages as well.
John Callahan, the creator, is a genius. I'd reccomend anyone to watch this show. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. ;P
