Synopsis

One of Canada's funniest exports has a number of wonderfully odd characters who take sharp, satiric jabs at social conventions and prejudices. The show created off-the-wall cult classics such as 'Cabbage Head,' 'Chicken Lady,' 'Head Crusher,' 'The King of Empty Promises' and 'Buddy Cole,' the flamboyantly gay barfly. 'Saturday Night Live' creator Lorne Michaels brought the Toronto-based Kids to HBO and then to CBS, which aired both reruns and new episodes.
