In last week's review of Gym Teacher: The Movie I mentioned the exceptional Disney kids show Even Stevens, a gem of a show I dearly miss and one of the best kid shows ever made. We used to watch episodes during our lunch breaks in Austin at the urging of a friend. The weird claymation intro is burned into my brain and the little ditty that opened the show will always remind me of afternoons spent revisiting a gentler, more innocent time of being in junior high.
The entire cast was thoroughly charming (you might recognize mom, Donna Pescow from Out of This World) but of course it was the now mega star Shia LaBeouf's turn as a some what nerdy, creative and mischievous pre teen that won our hearts. Though it's only fair to appreciate minor characters like Beans and Tom Gribalski.
The series is sadly not available on dvd but I am happy to say that this month it begins airing on WGN America, so if anyone out there can satellite TV, enjoy.
