Cast members featured
Seasons 2 and 3
The sketch focuses on Moody, an emotionally exaggerated teen whose mother is lost in a hot air balloon and whose father is missing a toe. It featured her friends such as her best friend Brie, the easily offended Misty, Spalding, a boy who has a huge crush on Moody but criticizes her in a ridiculous way and constantly has objects flung at him from beyond the screen; and Sternum (played by Matthew Botuchis), a brooding "bad boy" who responds to every question by asking the opposite question. Each episode had its own plot, and ends with a cliffhanger. An episode ends with Moody finding out that her real parents are circus trapeze artists named "The Flying Worthsbergs". The episode was left on a cliffhanger, but the show was canceled shortly thereafter. Schneider had pitched an full-fledged series based on the skit to Nickelodeon, but the show was never green-lit.
