Plot

The Three Friends and Jerry Three Friends and Jerry S01E03 YouTube

Jerry is the new kid in town who does not fit with any of his schoolmates. This series shows his best attempts to try to be liked by the 'Three Friends' who do not want him to be part of their group but still let him hang out with them as long as he helps them with their problems. They also fall for a group of the girls in town, who refuse to date them and refer to them as Ponks. Apart from school, the group have to contend with parents, bullies and their own conflicts.

Setting

The setting location of the series is left unclear. The characters have American voice-overs and dollars are mentioned as being the currency, suggesting a location in the United States. But the houses and architecture depicted in the series are European or European-like, suggesting a location in Europe. The creators of the series likely took inspiration from the architecture of Sweden and the United Kingdom, since the series was a Swedish/British co-production.

Criticism and controversy

Although Fox Family allowed The Three Friends and Jerry on their lineup (the original swearing in the Swedish version was not included in the English dub), many parents thought that it was not appropriate for children to watch, as it contained sexual content (the intro had Jerry getting yelled at by his teacher who is sunbathing in a skimpy bikini and the boys trying to look up girls' skirts as they jump rope and at least two episodes had references to voyeurism and Internet pornography), mature themes (such as religion and a junkie character who is also a pedophile), and criminal activity that would lead to copycat incidents, like counterfeiting money, breaking and entering, and shoplifting. Fox Family pulled the show from its schedule after being beset by complaints.
