Who /Canada/ here? What was your favorite cartoon to watch on YTV/Teletoon?
Why Squirrel Boy of course! Who could forget this charming trickster (only 90s kids will get this)!
Stickin Around is the only show I remember enjoying
cartoons on YTV back in the day - Spongebob, FOP, Transformers especially Beast Wars,
anime - InuYasha was my shit back in the day. DBZ too.
on Teletoon, I loved watching Megaman NT Warrior and Cybersix.
there was so many shows in my childhood, i'd be hear all day listing them.
Seeing Pat Kelly every day as a kid then watching him do improv as an adult was a pretty weird experience. Like seeing a teacher at the supermarket when you're a kid.
>tfw CRTC killed Bionix.
Granted, at the time they were only airing Naruto and Bleach for one hour on Saturday, around midnight.
I swear, I can't remember the name of this YTV live action show for the life of me but I remember one scene: The main character (some alien or robot girl) drank orange juice by putting her finger in the cup. That's the only recollection I have; anyone know what it was?
Just because they never happened, doesn't mean they ain't true.
What was that shitty Canadian cartoon about two hosers? One had a red shirt (I think) and the one in the blue shirt was shorter. I think there was a relaxed polar bear in there too. 10/10 description I know...
You mean Chilly Beach? That was on CBC.
The new Reboot series is gonna do that, too apparently. Human teens will be recruited by the Guardians and they transform into sprite like characters with special powers. I think that's a bad idea and ruins the concept of the user being a mysterious force outside of the computer world.
>The barrel of wine episode
>The party episode
Cartoons gave me the wrong kind of drinking problem.
I remember YTV used to actually show that version and then later changed to the other one. I missed the theme song you linked, it goes way harder. dat guitar shredding
I also remember watching DBZ on one of the french channels here and it was uncensored -- it was the episode where Piccolo killed Raditz and Goku, there was blood everywhere, it was awesome
They teleport the beast planet away, saving them forever but still leaving the universe to its doom.
The last scene is the beast planet consuming some random unknown planet.
The French version of DBZ was weird. It was uncensored and they kept the original Japanese screaming. The voice acting was atrocious, even for a French dub. I don't know if the soundtrack was the original or replaced by something like Grandizer from the 70s.
>YTV in 2015
>mfw canada will cancel fred's head after a season but still keep johnny test around
"hey let's let the guy who played the robot who wanted to have sex with some girl a tv show"
>TFW was really into the YTV's sitekick game when I was like 8-10 years old
>constantly hunting for chip codes in YTV's programming, their website, the magazine
>with the help of some of the more prominent members and a lot of my own grinding I made the front page of rankings
>which meant top 11 of over 100000 accounts
>was one of the first people to get the purple gem ranking
>submitted a design for one of the design a chip contests (hand drew it and mailed it in) and it actually showed up as a votable design
>can tell you all about oldfag lore like cripple chips and magic levels and all kinds of secrets and drama
please tell me someone else remembers what I'm talking about
I remember there were always contests and stuff with codes and passwords popping up during shows but I never got into it. I just wanted to watch muh toons.
aww yeah...now this was a cool show.
I hope this means they finally get to air the Ocean dub of DBZ Kai. they are making one...it's been 6 years in the making and still hasn't been released yet.
>tfw we will never get to see the first pilot episode of Freaky Stories that aired during YTV's Dark Night 3
>tfw all these other pieces of media from YTV's early days, lost forever
I sometimes like to think that the recordings of all these old shows/episodes are lying in an Indiana Jones warehouse somewhere.
Did content laws really kill Bionix? It was around for a good five or six years, I thought it was just flagging interest in anime and YTV shifting gears to the 'shitty tween sitcom' brand identity that got it cancelled.
Bionix was the shit though back when it was 8pm to 3am on Fridays.
Martin Mystery is probably the best Marathon cartoon, and I'm with >>78573837, seeing Canadian locations in a cartoon that weren't just "hurr durr, all of Canada is like the Territories with snow and igloos lel"
Watch Adult Swim Canada, senpai. Most of the good shows on Teletoon at Night moved there, plus some old Adult Swim gems.
>tfw no anime on Adult Swim Canada.
Man, I was practically raised by TV as a child. This hits me hard. There use to a real theme and flavor to the channel, but it's all gone now.
This show was such a 10/10 perfect series. Marathon's masterpiece.
I always loved YTV's old site. And the sitekicks were a great idea. I always got mine looking as ninja like as possible.
Godtier into, wonder who sings it.
>The original music score for this show was composed by Robbi Finkel while its theme song was written by Robert Olivier and sung by jazz vocalist Coral Egan
well thanks wikipedia, what a time of marvels we live in.
cartoon network, ytv, and teletoon (especially teletoon at night) literally raised me
>tfw you watch Beast Wars again and it ends up being way more goofy and stupid than you remember
At least Reboot Season 3 is still good..
This shouldn't be surprising since YTV rarely shows cartoons anymore, if at all. It's all live action kid shows. Though Teletoon has been showing more cartoons lately
because they absorbed some of Teletoon Retro's cartoons after that channel got killed.
There was a Canadian series I'm trying to remember. It was a live action weekly show that I think talked about comic books and stuff. I remember the title being Alpha to Omega but I can't seem to find anything with that name so I must be mixing it up with something else. Anybody know what I'm talking about.
MY THING'S SOUND EFFECTS
HERE'S A T REX
>People trying to remember shows
To this day I'm still looking for one that I can only vaguely remember
All the kids had mythical monsters as pets, the main characters dad was a miser so he didn't have one, and there was an episode where a medusa was given mirrored sunglasses and another where a catgirl was given a cassette tape
>Coming up next: Student Bodies!
I love how after all this time the theme song instantly started playing in my head. Wasn't even something I watched that regularly.
while most episodes where the same premise, it wasn't afraid of going really far away from the status quo.
Great fucking show.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT >>78578631 is me
I was looking up videos about sitekick and I found one where a person was looking through the ranking systems when the video was uploaded in 2007
AND THERE I FUCKING AM
Top of page 2 of 20000+ pages, my username was lolor
I'm flipping my shit, this was actually documented somewhere.
>It will never be 1998 again
>You will never Keep It Weird ever again
Why do all Canadian shows have that crudely drawn elementary school artstyle?
this is something that has genuinely made me really truly sad when drunk one time. The realization that my childhood is really truly dead and I`ll never experience it again. Man, it fucked up drunk me pretty bad. Apparently I watched YTV shower bumpers for like two hours and gave long indept analysis of each one that night according to a friend.
I remember the one with the roofers. They wanted the dad to forsake his plumber ways and start working on roofs with them. He had a natural talent because he could comfortably walk on a 45% angle (old country was apparently very hilly)
CanCon, it's a law that a certain percent of whatever a Canadian television broadcasts has to be Canadian in origin. Shows that are entirely produced within Canada earn extra points that can be used to air more American content and basically Canadian television stations are intentionally producing cheap shit so that they can air an extra episode of Adventure Time or whatever.
Does anyone recall when they did the thing with weird bugs invading the Zone and you would see them crawling across the screen during some shows?
I think this was right around the time where they picked up either Carlos or Sugar.
Also does anyone else remember a random cohost thing that was just a hand. Like it was just coming out of a hole, and would hold stuff or point to stuff. I`m not 100% sure about this one, I might be going crazy.
Hard to imagine that the same people who did Cosmic Christmas and The Racoons also got hired to make Heavy Metal, then came home to make Rock & Rule.
I remember them airing two or three new episodes of Beasties on NYE once. It was the start of Season 2 where the transmetals and fuzors showed up. I faked being sick so my parents would let me stay home instead of dragging me to a party.
Anyone know if Seasons 2-3 are still floating around somewhere? There's a few random episodes up on Youtube, but the majority of the series seems to have been lost in time.
I was sure that the episode where Inferno shows up was during some special thing because I remember we had to record it and some other stuff that was running late but the damn tape ran out halfway through the episode.
Anyone remember Erky Perky? Popped up on Netflix a while back and I've been watching it.
Remember when Perky tried to kill himself?
>You will never go on Video and Arcade Top 10
>You will never get the red bonus ball
>You will never find out if Nicholas Picholas was his real name
at the end of the season 2 finale MOM basically shut down The Centre and Martin gave up his UWatch. It left on a cliffhanger, but none of this was even acknowledged in season 3.
The season 3 finale is also pretty lackluster compared to season 2's
The saddest part of me was realizing I had spent so much of my childhood devoted to this one network that I felt an emotional connection to it. I'm in a single parent family so I guess it was easier for my mother to park me in front of the TV.
Jesus fucking christ I forgot about this show. I'd say it definitely helped push me into vidya as a youngin'.
This entire thread is giving me the best kind of nostalgia trip while also realizing how sad these channels (including their american counterparts) are for show variety and quality... Goddamn.
Also, anyone remember this gem?
It makes me sad /co/.
There are so many Canadian cartoons out there with no DVDs, no torrents, nothing on Youtube, nothing on Netflix, nothing on Itunes, there are simply lost forever.
Surprised nobody's mentioned these yet:
>That looked really....real. But you knew it couldn't be true, didn't you?
I remember on Rogers there was a kids On Demand channel filled with early 2000s shows, all for free.
If I knew how to rip them I would have done it.
Maybe someone with a Rogers box can confirm
Part of the reason I enjoyed Scott Pilgrim when I first read the series. It definitely wasn't a perfect series, but it was just so cool seeing places like fucking Dufferin Mall and Honest Ed's show up in a popular comic.
I remembered whenever it was a PD day, or a snow day, or if I was sick I stayed home alone since both my parents worked. Those were the best days, the first thing that was always on would be Rupert on YTV at 9am. I would just watch cartoons for the whole day while playing with Lego.
I miss being a kid.
I remember my brother and I always used to watch an episode of Uh Oh before school.
It is too late. You have gone too far.
I watched a lot of it mainly because (I think) of how rural my upbringing was. I lived in a town of about 300 people with an average age of over 65. There were 4 people my age in the town and we honestly did not have much in common and they lived on the complete other side of the town. So I was kind of left to my own devices. I watched a lot of TV to fill the hours and eventually moved onto the internet when we got it when I was 11 or so.
Looking back I realized that youth in my town basically had to make a choice at some point. Either go super hard into the hunting/fishing outdoors scene or go online for socialization. I went online, my brother went full huntsman.
