Sitcom, Children, Animated
Pelswick Eggert is just like most 13-year-olds, except that he is in a wheelchair -- or permanently seated as he prefers to call it. He doesn't let that stop him, though, as he deals with the usual obstacles that come with being a teenager, including school bully Boyd. The smart, good-natured teen is his own person, refusing to assimilate into popular culture, and is considered a fearless leader by best friends Ace and Goon. Another thing that separates Pelswick from his peers is Mr. Jimmy, his bearded, omniscient guardian angel who can see the future and offer Pelswick cryptic advice to help him out of sticky situations. The animated series, which aims to help kids learn to deal with disabilities in a comfortable way, was created by cartoonist John Callahan, who was left paralyzed following a car accident at the age of 21.
