Premise

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.
