Hello and welcome to another Throwback Thursday!
For today’s throwback, we will be revisiting… The Weekenders!
The Weekenders followed the lives of friends: Tino, Carver, Lor and Tish as they hung out out with each other during the weekend.
With the show’s theme song performed by Wayne Brady and written by him and Roger Neill, The Weekenders was known for having an ethnically diverse group of friends. According to Wikipedia, “Tino Tonitini (Jason Marsden), a witty Italian-American oddball; Lorraine “Lor” McQuarrie (Grey DeLisle), a sporty Scottish-American tomboy; Carver Descartes (Phil LaMarr), an African-American self-proclaimed “cool guy”; and Petratishkovna “Tish” Katsufrakis (Kath Soucie), a cultured Jewish-American intellectual of Lithuanian descent.” The show did a good job with the way the kids embraced their ethnicities with random moments in the show.
Throughout the series, the loyal foursome spend their weekends doing what most kids would do: going to food museums, dealing with not being invited to parties thrown by the popular kids and in Carver’s case, babysitting your sibling in order to earn money for a pair of new sneakers.
My favorite line from the show is when Carver says, “I see your lips moving, but all I hear is blah, blah, blah.”
