What's With Andy?

Show Summary

"What's With Andy?" is a cartoon series that's about the antics of a boy named Andy Larkin, his friend Danny Pickett, and the citizens of East Gackle who he is constantly tricking. He loves to have fun, and prank people. He's enemies with his sister Jen, and Peter Lik & Andrew Leech who are always forcing him to do things (or get beat up). He openly admits he's in love with Lori Mackney. One of these days he will pull enough pranks to get listed in the "World Record Books," but until then he'll have to face the music when pranks go wrong (which is pretty often with him).

"What's with Andy?" currently airs in Canada and Europe only. Check your local listings for channels, and times. Air times for TeleToon[Canada(est)]:Daily at 4:00am CHARACTERS

ANDY LARKIN: The star of the show who is obsessed with pranks. An "artist of pranks", he loves the sheer thrill of pulling practical jokes on everyone in his small town, including the mayor! Pranking aside, he is a very normal teenager who is interested in a certain girl at his school along with giving his sister a hard time and hanging out with his best bud.

JEN LARKIN: Andy's big sister (by two years) who attends the same school. With her attractive looks and intelligence, she is very active and popular at school. A strong participant, competitor and winner at many things- cheerleading (she's the captain), student council (she's the president), etc. The only stain on her shiny plate is... of course, her pest brother!

AL and FREIDA LARKIN: Parents of Andy and Jen. Al was a prankster when he was younger so Andy is a chip off the ol' block! While Al has mellowed out by maturity and sense of responsibility, he often indulges Andy's antics in order to teach the boy a lesson. Freida is the 'psychologist' of the family; she reads on child psychology books in an attempt to understand her kids (especially Andy). She is a pillar of the community, very involved in committees and fundraising.

DANNY PICKETT: A very loyal best friend and partner-in-crime of Andy, Danny is the perfect sidekick. He seems to know and anticipates what Andy is thinking or doing. Danny is often the voice of reality and caution for Andy.

LORI MACKNEY: The girl of Andy's dreams- she's cute and smart. Andy has publicly professed his crush on her although she seems just a bit put-off by Andy's unsatiable desire for pranking. Lori has told Andy that she considers him "cute" (to his delight) which is a sign that she secretly likes him back.

PETER LIK and ANDREW LEECH: 'Lik' and 'Leech' as they are called at school, are typical second-rate school bullies. Andy is their victim, but then again Lik and Leech are usually victims of Andy's pranks! Lik is the punk with the purple hair and is the leader of the two. Leech is the shorter and ugly one.

CRAIG BENETT: The jock of the school- handsome and strong (can be gullible sometimes). Jen thinks he's the coolest. Andy doesn't think so! Whenever Andy gets the chance, he makes sure that Craig is at the receiving part of his pranks.

TERI: Jen's friend and fellow cheerleader.

MARTIN BONWICK: A naive nerd and the hapless victim of almost everyone's, especially Andy's.

JERVIS COLTRANE: Height-challenged but a strong challenger against Andy for Lori's heart.

PRINCIPAL DEROSA: Principal of Andy's school. Very strict, unforgiving and easy to jump to conclusions. He's constantly suspicious of Andy but thinks Jen is the greatest.

VICTOR MUSHKOWITZ: Know as 'Mush', is a cool pizza delivery guy who appears in a few episodes, usually helping Andy with one of his pranks.moreless

  • The pranks, humour and the story is really great, but the art is horrible :(

    6.5
    Title: could say more :)



    Theme song: really go



    Story: A troublemaker Andy who makes everyones lives even worse. Well, he could be a goodguy a bit more often.



    Art: like I said the art is horrible! Andys principal whats-his-name-again is square and huge, while Andy himself doesn't have any muscles, and has a giant head. All the teenagers have lousy body proportions as well...



    Humour: I hate those american fart jokes everywhere. But this is the first cartoon where there could be fart humour.Andys dog could fart less, because it's getting annoying.



    Misc: In one episode it was hinted that Andys father was the graet prankster too O_O !



    In conclusion: A funny show, which could teach some troublemakers how to make good pranks.moreless
  • Quite good

    8.9
    Well... I only watched a few episodes, so I can't say much about it. Only the fact that I kinda like it. It's nice, the episode I have saw were funny and intelligent. The cartoons are original and have quite good plots. You can always watch them when you are bored or when it's raining. Yes. That kind of cartoons. But, general speaking the acrtoon is ok, as I have said already. I don't know what else to say about it. But you can watch it. You will not regret it. I didn't. What's with Andy = the good deal ..moreless
  • I loved the first and second season, but the rest........

    4.0
    What's with andy used to be an awesome show!I used to watch it all the time until they started making new episode's. I thought "hey, there finally making new episodes, i'll bet they'll be awesome"! but......... they started making boring and dumb episodes that made me fall asleep at the scene. they always ended up with andy saying something to the audience while he is chased by a mob of people in his underwear or not. they used to be classic pranks but now it's just boring pranks. there are good episodes Like that time andy goes to kindergarten, unlike a dumb one like him hiding under the house. this show needs fine tuning.moreless
  • What's with Andy? is a Canadian animated series that debuted in September 2001. It was originally an interactive Flash movie with completely different voice actors and a promotion for FOX Kids. However, it ended up airing on Teletoon.moreless

    The protagonist of the series is Andy Larkin, a mischievous teen who calls himself "the world's greatest prankster". The show follows him as he tries to perform incredibly well-thought out and elaborate practical jokes on people. He lives in the fictional town of East Gackle, Alberta (2nd and 3rd seasons only). He constantly breaks the fourth wall when the screen freezes.



    Andy's best friend, Danny Pickett, helps him out with almost every prank. He's enemies with his sister, Jen Larkin, and the bullies Peter Lik and Andrew Leech. Andy lusts for a girl named Lori Mackney and usually tries to impress her.

    Its a VERY-FUNNY show, worth seeing, when u're sad:D:D, or only for pleasure:D:D:D:Dmoreless
  • Juvenile, Yes. Inmature, Yes. Interesting, Surprisingly, Yes. Although it may be slightly childish, "What's With Andy" is, as my classification says, a decent show.

    7.0
    "What's With Andy" is one of those shows where you go, "It Seems Lame, But I Want To Watch It". Although, quote from my summary, it seems Juvenile and Inmature, "What's With Andy" is quite an interesting show. Some of the pranks are..different..but they still keep you glued to your seat, just to see what's in store for Andy Larkin's latest victim. Some of Andy's pranks are just plain outrageous, and the outcome isn't what you'd expect it to be. Of course, Not all Television shows are meant to be 100% Non-Fictional. Andy's pranks probably wouldn't happen in reality, but that's not saying that they'd NEVER happen. And if they did, the community would probably have this prankster arrested, and possibly even charged for god knows what. Although, the community would probably have a good laugh before putting the jokester behind bars. Personally, I'd like to see someone try to perform one of Andy Larkin's famed pranks. It'd be quite interesting to watch the full process of how a proper and professional prank is fully executed. And when the prank is sucessfully pulled of, I wouldn't die of laughter, but I'd get a couple of "giggles" of some sort. But, In a Nutshell, "What's With Andy" is a show that will entertain you, So I recommend that you just take a glimpse of it, and then you can decide whether "What's With Andy" is a show worth watching.moreless
