Kevin Spencer

Show Summary

Imagine the television program South Park taken to the next level, with more irreverent humor, more social commentary, more adult content, and more foul language That next level is Kevin Spencer, an animated television program that was on Canada's Comedy Network, starring Kevin, a chain smoking, cough syrup-addicted child from a welfare family. Kevin Spencer was produced by Ottawa-based Ocnus Productions and technically executed by Atomic Productions, a film, video and new media production and post-production company. Saturday Night Live purchased the Kevin Spencer series soon after it launched, but the series subsequently aired on CTV and The Comedy Network. The program uses provocative humor to comment on the social system in Canada, but according to its producer, the main intent is simply to make the viewer laugh at the irreverence and shock-value of the characters and plots. Opening Intro Kevin Spencer Something's wrong with that kid Kevin Spencer His head don't work it never did Something's wrong with that kid He's a chain smokin' alcoholic sociopath Kevin Spencer You better not cross his path Kevin Spencer He's a chain smokin' alcoholic sociopath (Sociopath) Percy: Oh not this crap again. Characters: Kevin E. Spencer: Kevin is a broken-head sociopath hooked on cough syrup and smokes. His only desire in the world is to just fit in. Despite blacking out almost every episode and drinking to the max, he gets right back up to his feet and continues his journey to life. Percy B. Spencer: Percy is Kevin's dad and is often arrested by the cops for fraud, robbery, or just being stupid. If a crisis is at hand, Percy would disguise himself as Drunken Welfare Man to save the day, sort of. Anastasia Spencer: The mother of Kevin and Percy's wife, she too likes to drink a lot and cheat on welfare checks. She gets irritated very easily and often cheats on Percy when he's out at the bar or in jail. Ideally she wants to have the perfect family with Kevin and Percy which is rarely seen in any episodes. Allen the Magic Goose: Allen is Kevin's imaginary friend. He is equally addicted to smokes and booze as his host and often prompts Kevin to procure more. Kevin would pretty much be dead or left in the streets if Allen never existed. Overall he's Kevin's guide through life and is always on hand to give advice and warn the boy about possible danger calamity. Marty the Bartender: He's a standard red-haired Irish bartender who isn't afraid to speak his mind to the Spencers. He also enjoys the money the Spencers keep dishing at him despite knowing that the family are criminals but overall it doesn't bother him too much and he sees this as "just business". The Narrator: He's the voice of the show and the viewer's insider. His active and main role is to narrate what Kevin says and thinks. This also applies to other characters in some cases. Charlie Plunt: He's the man who Anastasia always has an affair with. Charlie has a French accent and is always running away from Percy when he catches the 2 locking lips from time to time. He currently lives in a trailer just outside of town. Some episodes contain quotes with strong language.moreless

  • Good Show actually

    10
    Kevin Spencer was a good show, but the last season wasn't the best one even though i really like The Missing Links. The end of the show was terrible, they just killed off all the characters which was very bad and sad. It wasn't clear if Charlie Plunt died or not but he probably did because Percy took his hat after the fire in the house when Pornman and Afroman died. Kevin Spencer is one of my favorite show and i own several seasons on DVD. I actually think that there might be to much drinking and talking except for stories. But that doesn't make it a worse show. The best season was season 2 and the worst was probably season 8 because it only contains like 6 episode and only 2 of them are good. I still like Kevin Spencer and i watch it sometimes when i feel like it.moreless
  • It was a wonderful show, and now it is not.

    It was a wonderful show that really related to the lives in the seamy neighborhood I grew up in. It was straight forward and realistic in depicting these lost people. This season, it seems that the writers have decided to give the show an intellectual flavour and they have failed miserably. The straightforward dialogue has been replaced with nonstop psychobabble and nonsense. Very unreal. Very pseudointellectual. Might as well be watching the Gilmore Girls or a Neil Simon play.
