  • show Description
  • Welcome to the Pelswick guide at TV.com. Pelswick Eggert is a 13-year-old 8th grader with a sharp tongue, a healthy suspicion of authority and a complete lack of fear. He also is in a wheelchair due to him having no feeling below his armpits. Pelswick is just like any other 13-year-old when it comes to being independent, disaster-prone, mixed-up, and plugged into everyday pop culture. Pelswick's home life is dominated by his fiercely-protective (and totally insane) Gram-Gram, as well as his politically correct father Quentin, who will go to any length to avoid offending anyone. ("Nobody's wrong, they're just differently right!") Also in the picture are precocious younger sister Kate, and little brother Bobby, who says exactly one word per episode. At school, Pelswick's life is made miserable by bully Boyd Scullarzo, and Boyd's none-too-bright sidekicks Nick and Joe. Boyd is truly dedicated to the art of bullying; he's announced publicly that "it's bad form to beat up a cripple, so I'll focus on humiliation and psychological torture instead". ("Cripple", incidentally, is Boyd's term; Pelswick prefers "permanently seated".) Fortunately, Pelswick has a loyal band of friends to help him through the rough patches: numbers-obsessed Ace, dim-but-decent behemoth Goon, prima donna Sandra Scoddle, and sensible Julie Smockford, on whom Pelswick has a not-so-secret crush. Finally, there's Mr. Jimmy, a Jerry Garcia look-alike who is Pelswick's thoroughly incompetent guardian angel. Invisible to everyone but Pelswick, the laid-back Mr. J pops up at the strangest times to offer Pelswick maddeningly cryptic advice about whatever outrageous predicament Pelswick finds himself in this week. Mr. Jimmy routinely drives Pelswick crazy, and Pelswick often goes to great lengths to try to avoid him... but how can you avoid an angel who can instantly appear wherever you happen to be?moreless

    Trivia (15)

    • Pelswick lives with his Father Quentin, his grandmother Gram-Gram, his little sister Kate, and his little brother Bobby.

    • Kate takes a picture when Julie lands face first onto some grass. But when she shows the picture to Sandra, Julie seems to have landed on blacktop asphalt.

    • When Kate gives Pelswick some brown gloop for dinner, it doesn't have a carrot in it like everyone else's. But when we see Pelswick's gloop again, it contains a carrot.

    • - In a scene, Pelswick's grandma pulls up next to the runaway speeding wheelchair that Pelswick and Boyd are on. She asks Boyd how tall he is, and Boyd replies that he is 5'10". Grandma then proceeds to tell Pelswick to look for a 5'9" clearance (implying that Boyd would get knocked off). However, Boyd is crouching awkwardly on the battery pack behind Pelswick, so his height can't be an exact 5'10". - Oh yeah, if the battery pack is "red hot" (Boyd's quote), then how come the soles of Boyd's boots didn't even melt or smoke while he was standing on it for such a long time? --A viewer.

    • Ramona Manns wrote in to mention that when Nick and Joe are choking on some glue, you can see a bowl of glue in the background -- but when they fall to the ground, the bowl of glue disappears.

    • When Pelswick tells his friends where his family is, his wheelchair battery is white. But when Ace cleans it, the battery is black.

    • When Pelswick remembers Carsden Warner saying "Replace him!", the sound of Warner's voice is different from how it originally was heard.

    • Quentin is revealed to ironically have "standards" of how politically correct a person can be in "Speak No Evil, PC No Evil." However, the camp founders shown here are much more PC than Spagna ever was and Quentin does not care.

  • I realize that they won't bring it back. But it was a wonderful Nick show. Pelswick might have been handicapped, but he was a fantastic role model.

  • Pelswick may be handicapped, but he has a life like everyone: bullies, peer pressure, friends, crush on a girl, and a weird yet hilarious family. But most of all: He has a guardian angel who helps him get through life as funny as possible.
