Tender Pits

Synopsis:
How best to describe tenderpits? a Canadian coming-of-age tale featuring a drunken moose. a show about a boy wizard who discovers that diapers and videogames make a useful combination. an opportunity for Johnston to sing a song from the Little Mermaid and set up a funny Jesus-related sight gag. a story about finding yourself and hopefully finding love. as the saying goes, it's all this and more.
