Each episode followed the exploits of Julius the monkey and his cast of eccentric friends as they encountered unexpected adventure in Planned Pines USA, the first planned community for cartoon characters. Starring the voice talent of Jason Schwartzman, Christina Pickles and Gregg Berger, Julius & Friends was the first original web-series created especially for kids and families.
Wade created SheZow, the animated television series, the first children's television show in America to feature a young male protagonist, Guy Hamdon, who fights crime exclusively as a female superhero. Due to the gender fluidity of its lead character, SheZow came under scrutiny by conservative Christian groups such as One Million Moms andThe Breitbart Group who claimed that SheZow was immoral. The media attention generated by the controversy gave SheZow exposure allowing it to gain a following.
In 2013 Wade was named a "Rising Star in Animation" by Animation Magazine.
