O'Grady was a comedic animated series that aired on TeenNick from 2004 to 2006. The show followed the lives of a group of high school students in the fictional town of O'Grady, which was consistently beset by strange and often supernatural occurrences. The show was created by Tom Snyder and Carl Adams, and featured voice performances from H. Jon Benjamin, Melissa Bardin Galsky, and the late Patrice O'Neal.

The show's central characters were four friends: Kevin, Abby, Beth, and Harold. Kevin was the de facto leader of the group, a brooding cynic who was always ready with a snarky comment. Abby was the energetic, fearless one, always eager to explore and experience new things. Beth was the voice of reason, trying to keep the group on track and steer them away from trouble. Harold was the oddball of the group, always spouting off weird facts and generally sticking out like a sore thumb.

The show was infamous for its fast-paced, absurdist humor and clever writing. Each episode featured a different supernatural threat to the town, whether it was ghosts, monsters, or even time-traveling robots. The characters always found themselves in the center of the chaos, tasked with solving the mystery and saving the day.

One of the show's standout features was its animation style, which mixed traditional 2D animation with cut-out paper dolls. The characters' movements were jerky and exaggerated, adding to the show's surreal feel. The animation was complemented by a unique sound design, which featured a mix of electronic music and classic rock for the show's soundtrack.

H. Jon Benjamin, who would later go on to voice characters on shows like Bob's Burgers and Archer, lent his distinctive voice to the character of Kevin. Melissa Bardin Galsky played Abby, bringing a ton of energy and humor to the role. Patrice O'Neal, who tragically passed away in 2011, voiced the character of Harold, imbuing the character with his trademark humor and wit.

Despite its devoted fanbase, O'Grady only ran for two seasons before being cancelled in 2006. The show's quirky humor and creative animation style made it a cult favorite, and it has continued to have a devoted following in the years since its cancellation.

Overall, O'Grady was a hilarious and inventive animated series that blended humor, horror, and sci-fi in its own unique way. It was a true gem of mid-2000s television, and its influence on the world of animation can still be felt to this day.

O'Grady is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (19 episodes). The series first aired on July 30, 2004.
