Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street is an award-winning 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.
