The half-hour show takes place in Ottawa, Ontario, and revolves around the everyday happenings of the Spencer family, more frequently Kevin himself. His parents are Anastasia and Percy Spencer. Anastasia (voiced by Thomasin Langlands) is a fat, drunken, and promiscuous woman, a curious cross, it would seem, between a hoser (a stereotypical Canadian) and a hick. Curiously, she often ends up having sex, despite being immensely unattractive in just about all senses of the word. Often she receives sex because of people wishing to get back at her husband, Percy. Percy (voiced by Lawrence) is also a fat, drunken, loud, boorish and illiterate oaf, so stupid it is questionable whether he can write his own name. With parents like these, it is not the least bit surprising that Kevin is a "chain-smoking, alcoholic, sociopathic" juvenile delinquent at the age of 14.
Most of the adventures on the show revolve along illegal schemes committed by any or all three of the characters. Most of the time their motive is nothing more than the ability to acquire more money than their welfare cheques give them. Kevin occasionally goes to school, encountering other stereotypes and people who are almost as stupid as his parents.
Kevin's character is slightly more interesting in the fact that he is obviously in possession of some degree of intellect. The show never uses his voice (until recently), but suggests that he tells people rather detailed and articulate things or asks intelligent, legitimate questions when faced with an argument. Instead, the show's narrator (voiced by Lawrence) speaks for him. More often than not these arguments are dismissed by the person that hears them, and this usually causes Kevin to respond to what his environment led him to be the answer: violence.
Another frequent character in the show is Allen the Magic Goose, an anthropomorphic chain-smoking goose that is the other inspiration behind many of Kevin's misadventures, but is just a figment of his imagination. The bird is what contributes the most to Kevin's sociopathic nature, usually asking him to do illegal, indecent, and dangerous things simply for the sake of the thrill or for vengeance.
Percy is let out of prison and joins a militia group â€“ the same crew that the Spencer's uppity neighbors, the Bensons, have hired to kill them. On their way to the liquor store to make the hit on Anastasia, Percy manages to rat out the militia group and save his wife.
Kevin ditches school to play pool at the Camel Toe, where he meets Victor the pool shark. Victor takes Kevin under his wing to teach him how to hustle. Kevin trains hard but ends up facing Fat Tony â€“ a notorious hustler himself. Percy spends the episode in prison with Eustace the cannibal, while Mom takes advantage of Percy's absence to have sex with some of the neighborhood men.
The foreman at the construction site across the street offers Percy $300 to fight in the illegal fights he organizes down at the docks. Percy agrees, and ends up losing badly to the undefeated Gary ""Grim Reaper"" Morgan. The Bensons â€“ in an effort to get back at the Spencer's for Kevin's antics, have an insurance adjuster videotape Percy's fight so that his workman's comp gets cut off.
The Spencer's visit the mall where Mom meets her favorite soap hunk, Brock Brickleydale who she ends up stocking and almost killing. Percy shoplifts Kevin a pet snake, but Kevin winds up arrested for the crime after his parents ditch him. A corrupt old cop arranges for Kevin to become a trainer for a guide dog, which Kevin trains to be a canine-version of himself.
When Charlie Plunt's student loan money comes in, he takes Mom and Kevin to Niagara Falls after ratting out Percy to the cops. Kevin is bored and explores the town on his own. He manages to hook up with Percy who jumped bail so the pair go on an insane bender that ends in a police chase over the falls.
It â€˜s the first day of summer holidays and Kevin is bored so he joins a religious group. The group plans an outing to shoot doctors at the abortion clinic where Anastasia happens to be taking advantage of the clinic's ""buy-six-get-one-free"" offer. The religious cult's plans are foiled when Percy gets thrown off his motorcycle during a police chase and lands on the maniacal firing squad.
The hospital where Percy is being treated for a heart attack is taken over by terrorists. Kevin hides out with a bad ass nurse he's fallen in love with while Percy gets stuck in an elevator. Mom makes the best of the situation and tries to sleep with as many doctors as possible. Horny mom saves the day when she makes a move on the terrorists who flee the building in fear.
Kevin and Percy steel an old car from the delusional Widow Coulson â€“ the same woman Kevin is forced to deliver her meals on wheels. Kevin grows to like the old hag because she was as insane as he was, and because she had lots of medication. When a body is found in the trunk of the stolen car by Percy's mechanic, the widow, the mechanic, the pawn shop owner and Percy wind up defending themselves on a Court-TV-inspired game show.
