Let's hear some good leaf toon titles, /co/.
"there are none"/related shitposts not allowed
Ed, Edd n Eddy
Not to mention all of the Mainframe Entertainment series like:
Beast Wars (Beasties)
Shadow Raiders: War Planets
>Ed, Edd n Eddy
This show is NOT Canadian, no matter how much /co/ might like it to be. The fact that some Canadians worked on it doesn't change that it was a Cartoon Network original (and e.g. Teletoon had no involvement).
There are none.
Just kidding. Ruby Gloom is my favorite cartoon.
At first it looked bland, but with each new episode, the show grew on me

Do "shows made/outsourced" to Canada count?
>Rick & Morty
>Wander Over Yonder (season 1)
>Star Vs. The Forces of Evil (first 5 episodes)
>Kick Buttowski: Suburban Daredevil
>Those new Mickey Mouse shorts
>Be a cartoon
>Owned by American company
>Gets animated in Canada to save money without producers having to speak to Chinamen
>Show looks good, but the dialogue / plots are awful
>"Canadian cartoons are shit"
Will this ever get a series?
>tfw you realize America just leeches from Canada and claims it as it's own
I fucking hate this country
Went through Teletoon's original programming, nostalgia'd everywhere. I'll share some of my favorites:
>Angela Anaconda (Fuck you I liked it)
>Kids from Room 402
>What About Mimi?
>For Better or For Worse
>What's With Andy?
>Class of the Titans
just another reminder how awesome old Teletoon was, I mean they literally translated like 95% of the channel, not even just the shows but promos etc.
stuff that would likely never be dubbed into the other language was (not just into French, e.g. Fred's Head was dubbed in English right away)
now look what it's become
Watch this hype ass intro https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e18Ujqd74kA&ab_channel=NathanSnedden
this was like half Canadian. Does it still count?
well, it's treated slightly better than English Teletoon at least, but that's probably just because the company that owns it has like 99% English channels and has a separate division for the tiny number of French ones
>games back then only were released in English
>characters used their English names despite talking in French
as a native french speaker, pokemon was piss easy to understand. It's was one of the first game that made me understand basic English despite being just a kid
kids these days get everything handed to them in French so they don't give a shit about learning English, which is a shame
This is now a
goodTeletoon shows thread.
Ruby Gloom's my favorite.
Though I actually think Bagel and Becky is a fun little show. But I'm biased toward Dave Cooper, so.
Would Clone High count? I think it was made for MTV, but it was made by Nelvana, I think. That's one of my favorite shows. Sam and Max: Freelance Police, too.
not him, but I'm frog canadian but I didn't mind video games in English. I was pissed as fuck when I realized my HeartGold version was in French when all the previous Pokémon games I had were in English (my first game being Pokémon Gold).
its a very mean spirited show on the whole, there are a couple of episodes where it isn't nearly as mean spirited but it was a downer series
This is a true story. It happened to a friend of a friend of mine.
>no Ripping Friends
I'm disappointed, /co/
>no one posted this perfection
>Hi, Anon. Wow, we don't get much Ned's Newt mail. I saw a few weeks ago that it was running on Qubo.
>Ned's Newt was our first cartoon show -- 1997 to 2000. It was a lot of fun to write. They made 78 and I guess we wrote about half? (We were the show runners, so we re-wrote all of them.) I always wished that someone would put them all out on DVD. There were 3 VHS tapes with 4 episodes each, and that was it.
>I remember the Nana Mouskouri gag. It seemed that whatever we suggested, they drew, with few objections. It was broadcast in Germany at the same time, if you can believe that. I don't know how many of the references they understood over there.
>At some point they had a parade in Hamilton, Ontario, or maybe Toronto, with Ned and Newton characters in the parade. I have a news clipping about that somewhere.
>Nelvana was pretty cool about it all. We did get suggestions starting in Season 2 that we start re-using some of the characters we'd already created, because they'd made so many. They sent us a thick binder full of all the characters that Newton had morphed into by that point. We tried to comply.
>Darrell [Vickers] might remember separately if there was any censorship. I remember we had to take out General Patton because the Germans claimed they'd never heard of him. Darrell said, "You should remember him, he marched through half your country."
>Compared to every other cartoon show we've worked on there was very little cut from the scripts. I don't know why. We just flew under the radar. It also helped that Fox Kids, which ran the first 2 seasons, had declined to pick up the series from the beginning. If they had been involved from the start, they would have been able to give notes. But it was just an acquisition for them, so all we got from them were Standards and Practices notes... though they did try to sneak a few "creative" notes in there under this heading.
The obvious answer is Ruby Gloom, though I have to say, I fucking hate a lot of the animation in it; the designs are great and adorable and all, but the snappy, basic way everything moves around in earlier seasons is an eyesore. Thankfully they get better later on, but still.
>This was 20 years ago
>YTV will never be this good ever again
Kevin Spencer! He's a chain-smoking alcoholic sociopath and he drinks cough syrup (the Canadian kind with DXM not that dopey lean shit) and his imaginary friend is a giant duck that tells him to light things on fire!! very influential during my youth
(fuck, 80s were best: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=usFFKNRB2z8)
Eek! The Cat
Ruby Gloom kinda is
What's with Andy
Kid vs Kat was OK
and probably some other ones
Heavy MTV involvement in both, it's pretty difficult to call them Canadian...but I'll do it anyways, because there's not a lot else.
The whole question of "what makes a show Canadian" is really what needs to be asked here.
If Scott Pilgrim got an animated series and it was made entirely in Canada,
would it be good?
Eek! the Cat was the shit, as were the other cartoons affiliated with it (Terrible Thunder Lizards, Klutter). Apparently these were Canadian-American mixed productions but I never hear Americans mention them.
The channel itself may have been the best Canadian "show" in its heyday. The scheduling, promotional material, and just the overall experience were second to none in Canada, and on par with the best American networks at the time (and possibly even better).
