100 Deeds for Eddie McDowdRemembered by 25 users
100 Deeds for Eddie McDowd was a television program that ran from 1999 to 2002 on Nickelodeon. The show's premise is that the title character, schoolyard bully Eddie McDowd, is punished by a man called The Drifter because of Eddie's behavior. The 17 year old finds himself very attractive and powerful and so he bullies others without mercy. The Drifter plans to make Eddie pay for his wrongdoings and turns the boy into an Australian Shepherd/Siberian Husky mix and has Eddie do 100 good deeds before he can be turned back into a human. Besides The Drifter, the only one who can hear Eddie talk is Justin Taylor, who was the last kid Eddie bullied. Now Eddie must work alongside Justin and the Taylor family to finish his good deeds and become human once again. It is explained by The Drifter in a later episode that should this happen, neither Justin nor Eddie will outright remember their experiences (though Eddie will still be a better person for it). The show was cancelled in the United States due to declining ratings in the spring of 2002 after only 40 episodes, with Eddie still a dog and sixty-odd deeds left to do. However, the show was such a hit in Europe that it was released on Amazon.fr.
