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.

The result: a kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heartbreaking.
