Storyline

Jeff, aka Mr. Pickles, is an icon of children's television, a beacon of kindness and wisdom to America's impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him - who also anchors a multimillion-dollar branding empire. But when this beloved personality's family - wife, two sons, sister and father - begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through the crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. The result: a kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heartbreaking. Written by Showtime

Trivia

In a mixed assessment, Rolling Stone's Alan Sepinwall awarded the series three-and-a-half stars out of five and provided restrained admiration saying, "Jim Carrey's worth the price of admission, though, even if it's not the TV comeback vehicle many of his fans would want. Heck, he'd probably be a huge hit just hosting a full-length version of the show within the show, rather than this version that only gives us innocent glimpses amidst all the mourning. But like Jeff Pickles, Carrey wants to lean into the harder parts of life. More often than not with Kidding, he succeeds." See more »
