The offbeat adventures of Courage, a cowardly dog who must overcome his own fears to heroically defend his unknowing farmer owners from all kinds of dangers, paranormal events and menaces that appear around their land.
A group of Canadain teenagers compete in a reality show in parody of reality shows. Everything about the genre is parodied here including the challenges, rules, surprise catches, romances, alliances, back-stabbing, eliminations, confessions, and all around insanity.Written by
Since Total Drama Revenge of the Island, many contents were since been reduced or omitted, like slang language such as crap (which was dropped since Total Drama All Stars), suggestive situations reduced to passionate romance, suggestive dialogues being dropped, pixelated male nudity reduced to be shown once on each season (omitting pixelated female nudity completely), pixelated middle fingers removed, and the infamous "bleep" sound being dropped. Total Drama All Stars and Total Drama Pahkitew Island contains no edits in the United States. See more »
The original Teletoon version opened with a disclaimer being read by Chris McLean that went "This episode of TDI contains scenes of extreme stunts performed by animated teens. Do not try any of what you see here at home. Seriously, you could get really messed up." See more »

The introduction of an impressive array of stereotypical characters began this animated reality television show, the most brilliant and unexpected oxymoron I encountered as of late. There's a way to relate almost any of the characters to someone you've met at one point in your life. Each character is memorable in their own way, if only because of the brilliant stereotyping, or the sheer wackiness of some.
On the "reality" half, there is very little real about it, and yet, it actually feels real in ways. At times, it's a biting satire of many of the absurd reality TV programs aired in the past few years. At others, the relations and rivalries between characters feel very realistic. The only problem, really, is that some of the humor feels weak and forced. On the other hand, some of it works really well.
If only this show didn't spawn so much awful fan-fiction...
7/10, for a great concept and intelligent writing, if weak in the humor department at times.
