Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Created by (but not directly based on the cartooning of) John Callahan, Pelswick was produced by Nelvana and animated by Suzhou Hong Ying Animation. In its home country of Canada, it was shown on CBC Television for two seasons. In the United States, it aired on the Nick on CBS block from 2002 to 2003.The show was about Pelswick Eggert, a 13 year old boy who struggled with the average problems that 7th Graders have, such as trying to decide between impressing a girl and going with his gut feelings, and dealing with bullies, while also being in a wheelchair.In most episodes, Pelswick would have to learn An Aesop from his Guardian Angel, Mr. Jimmy. No matter what the Aesop was, Pelswick would usually not get it until the very end of the episode.In 2004, a poll on FUNimation's website revealed that they held the DVD rights to Pelswick. They didn't end up releasing any episodes on DVD, likely because of low interest. The show is available for free streaming on Tubi TV, who also streams a bunch of other shows from the Nelvana library.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })

Adorably Precocious Child: Kate is much more savvy and has a much higher vocabulary than most girls her age.

Adults Are Useless: The only adults of any prominence are the two old ladies caught up in their rivalry, the Cloudcuckoolander and overprotective vice principal, and the father caught up in political correctness. Oh, and the guardian angel, who despite his weirdness ends up being the wisest character on the show.

Accidental Aesop: In-universe: Mr. Jimmy did not intend the Aesop: "You are taking something that is not that bad and covering it up with a lot of things that are worse" in the dance episode; he just really wanted to cover his bald spot.
