John Callahan's art is absolutely hysterical and Quads! is proof of this theory. I think for the most part that this was a very underrated Canadian show but i mean every Canadian show is underrated lol. I think most original animated series' that hit Teletoon are pretty good Bromwell High or Sons Of Butcher for example but many of the recent Teletoon shows like Tom Goes To The Mayor and 12 Oz Mouse make you wish shows like these were back on TV. Quads! has great realism in the voice acting, none of the voices sound over exaggerated or unbelievable and each voice is a perfect reflection of John Callahans artwork. The show centers around Reilly O'Reilly a man who is run over and because of this becomes a quadriplegic however the millionaire who runs him over avoids a lawsuit by buying him a mansion ironically next door to him which of course displeases his trashy, snobby, self centered wife. Reilly moves in his best friends all of which are in the minority be it disabled folk, African Americans, or homosexuals and pokes fun at the quirks and stereotypes. The show has a lot of what i refer to as "d*ouche bag humour" which means all of the characters are sleazy, disgusting, slobs, whom you love simply because they are so bad and unappealing. The show is almost all sexual humour but it does this surprisingly in a way that is enjoyable much like The 40 Year Old Virgin made sex humour likable and seem innocent. It's a shame it only lasted 2 seasons but most Canadian shows are lucky if they go past 13 episodes so i suppose Quads! was well liked by most Teletoon viewers. The series is available on DVD and is worth buying simply because it's one of those hilarious shows most won't remember but will always have a core audience. Good luck to John Callahan and all his future endeavors.
