The child or teenager who's a little bit, well, odd is a staple character on television, going back to the likes of Maynard G. Krebs and Wednesday Addams (who even in a family of ghoulishly over-the-top characters came off as slightly strange).
But we seem to be living in something of a golden age of quirky kids. On both comedies and dramas, the new generation of oddball pre-adults are among the most memorable characters on their respective shows. Here are a few of our favorites from current and recent shows.
