I hope we get this on our Cartoon Network channel!


In a nutshell --- it's a lot like Survivor in animation. Originally a Canadian production Cartoon Network (USA) will air this beginning June. It's not the first time this idea has been done though, I mean, doing a reality series parody in animation. About two or three years ago TV had Drawn Together, this wacky animated series from Comedy Central. And it was a parody of Big Brother and MTV's The Real World. I enjoyed its first season, but after that, it just got really kinky. I'm assuming Total Drama Island is a lot more kid-friendly.

Total Drama Island (as per Wiki):
This series is about twenty-two teens who sign up to star on a new reality show similar to Survivor called Total Drama Island. It takes place at a camp called Camp Wawanakwa, located on an island in an unspecified area in Muskoka, Ontario. They are divided into two teams, the Screaming Gophers and the Killer Bass. Every three days, the losing team would be called to the campfire at night, and the host would pass out marshmallows. Those who had the marshmallows would stay, while the one who did not get a marshmallow would be voted off the island, and have to walk down the Dock of Shame to the Boat of Losers, which would take them away. This continues on until one person remains on the island (besides the host of the show and the chef in the mess hall). The last contestant would win a $100,000 prize (which the host is certain the contestant would "blow in a week" as he put it).
