Degrassi is a Canadian drama that follows the lives of a group of teenagers who lived on or near De Grassi Street in Toronto, Ontario. The early Degrassi series were produced by the small production company owned by Kit Hood and Linda Schuyler, Playing With Time Inc.

Began with a short film called ''Ida Makes A Movie'', which was adapted from a children's book of the same name (which was about [[PettingZooPeople talking cats!]]). From there, the small production company created ''Series/TheKidsOfDegrassiStreet'', which included a couple of after school specials. Starting with ''Series/DegrassiJuniorHigh'' it went DarkerAndEdgier, taking on many SoapOpera tropes and adding LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters with a ton of {{Very Special Episode}} topics within every episode, the result being the TropeMaker for the TeenDrama genre.
