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
