Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street is a 1/2 hour TV show created by David Anaxagoras that follows Gortimer and his two best friends, Ranger and Mel, as they face the challenges of growing up on Normal Street — a seemingly ordinary suburb that has a hint of something magical just beneath the surface. The trio set out to end a jinx while helping the unluckiest kid on Normal Street, solve a mystery before a spooky spirit turns them into ghost stories, find a fabled lost treasure, and outsmart fate after some advice from a fortune teller.

Critical Acclaim

“Amazon has scored another mini-coup with “Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street,” … characterized by its child’s-eye-view and a whimsical perspective on those wonder years, which recalls movies such as “Stand by Me.” … this sort of genuinely clever alternative is anything but normal.” — Brain Lowry, Variety

“This adult found himself gobbling the four episodes Amazon sent as if I were raiding my kids’ Halloween candy.” — James Poniewozik, TIME

“[A] smart and charming live-action series for preteens.” — The New York Times
