Welcome to a series chock-full of giggles, wishes, rude noises, and best of all – GENIES!

Now then, what do we know about genies? Well . . .

  1. They are magical
  2. They live in lamps
  3. They make wishes come true.

But this particular genie is named Grant, and even though he is indeed magical, and does live in a lamp (well, a teapot), he's not very good at making wishes come true...
