* I don't get Cartoon Network's early censorship standards. They remove the word "suck" a bunch of times (sometimes replacing it with [[GoshDangItToHeck "stinks"]] or just removing it. "How does it feel to so much?") But they left the title to episode 6 alone - "The ''Sucky'' Outdoors". Now, unless they just changed the title completely, did they just [[ViewersAreMorons expect kids to not read the title?]] (Assuming they had the program to do so?)

** {{Fanservice}}?

to:
** It's probably just a goof so they wouldn't have to animate Tyler in his tighty-whities for the rest of the episode (even though I'm sure some people wouldn't mind).

to:
*** Confirmed in Total Drama All-Stars

to:
** Which is weird too since Courtney apparently loves singing.

to:
** Maybe it's to be ironic? Since Ezekiel gets no where close to victory?

to:
** Not to mention the lyrics of the song were very revealing about who Blaineley really is ("She's just so full of you-know-what, she has to double flush the can!", "She bought two pairs of the same jeans, one size 4, one size 8, so when she wears the bigger ones you'll ask if she's lost weight" "Her real name isn't Blaineley, it's Mildred!")

to:
** As if the writers would let Duncan go even one season without letting him make the merge.

** Out-of-universe it was almost certainly an intentional reference. In-universe, it's harder to say.

* When [=MacArthur=] brought up her old babysitter Jennifer Masterson did she mean the ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Sixteen}} 6teen]]'' character or was the identical name just a coincidence?

**** Courtney being in the competition and Duncan not being in it still would hurt him emotionally since they're separated (Harold couldn't have known about the Playa des Losers). Then Duncan wouldn't even have a chance at the money. On the contrary, if Duncan stayed on the island, he'd be angrier because Courtney left and thus even more willing to inflict pain. Even if he didn't know Harold did it specifically, he'd still target him because he just likes to bully Harold anyway. That bullying may have hurt more. Might be a good thing Harold left the episode after this one.

*** This is only a [[{{Headscratchers}} headscratcher]] because the show seems to be following a linear timeline. Most cartoons have LimitedWardrobe ''and'' a sliding timeline or ComicBookTime, and the ones that don't have both tend to have neither (e.g. ''AsToldByGinger''). Here, we seem to have one but not the other, and that's what seems off. And no, it doesn't have to do with the show being Canadian. ''KingOfTheHill'' was exactly the same way in its early days, before it stopped the characters' aging.

** It's not. It's got two ears, the backs of them are just together all the time. If two ears separate would be like this: (| |), bunny's ears are like this (|).

[[folder: General aka. across all seasons]] * this has been a pet peeve of mine ever sense this show aired. no wait in fact I have multiple peeves. for one while I may understand this is supposed to be a satire of real reality shows but cmon. Chris Mclean makes jigsaw look like pinkie pie. Why is someone as monsterous, unfeeling, and perhaps somewhat autistic is able to get away with blantantly attempting to murder and or slaughter the contestants... AND GET AWAY WITH IT with not even one contestant calling him out on how fucked up it is? surely he would be on the same most wanted tier as bundy and arrested on the spot and given death by lethal injection If this was a real show that all of a sudden went horribly wrong. at first I thought the contests were actually kidnapped and tricked into thinking this was just all a show. but nope, its all legit. oh Chris Mclean. what the hell is really wrong with him? hell in one episode he was tied up over a pool of lava... or was it acid... with eziekel hell bent on ending his rotten miserable life once and for all. and what do the contestants decide to do. SAVE HIM. they had the sole man responsible for all the misery and near death and trauma they were put through at their mercy.... and they SAVE HIM. even though they have all the reason to let him die. WHY DID THEY SAVE CHRIS!!? that is all. ** One at at time. First the contestants in Total Drama are clearly MadeOfIron and seem to be fairly aware of it. They have been bitten by sharks,alligators and bears (and that's only counting the non mutated non robots), thrown out of planes without parachutes, been put into radioactive mines and buried alive and to date only a few contestants have been seriously injured and barring whatever happened at the end of All-Stars none of them have died. Lightning was playing baseball with "Ironman's" energy blasts to calibrate things a bit. The show probably isn't really THAT dangerous in universe. So with that said Chris is probably only slightly more sadistic than say the Iron Chef in real life. The Contestants are constantly calling him out on what a JerkAss he is however, if you haven't noticed that the majority of contestants openly loathe Chris you just haven't been paying attention. ** The rest of your questions boil down to one million dollars is a lot of money and I suspect that within the limits of total Drama Action one million dollars may be worth more than it is in real life. Courtney is implied to be extremely rich, rich enough that she wouldn't be risking her life over a million bucks. Dakota is all but confirmed to be a Paris Hilton expy which means she shouldn't be getting off her ass for one million dollars and no signed release should be enough to protect Chris from the lawyers her father should be able to marshal. Chef tells them if Chris dies you don't get the money and they all got real motivated real quick in that episode. In the most recent series an evil super genius takes control of the island for the million bucks even though they could probably earn that much certainly over a few years on their own. ** Also Chris not only isn't wanted for his sadistic treatment of the children, Total Drama inverse is sufficiently popular that the Canadian government set him free to film a new season after locking him up on pollution charges. Clearly the amount of money he draws into the nation is enough that the government doesn't care that he might eventually kill one of these kids and people are apparently still willing after five seasons and three entirely separate casts to voluntarily join the show. Even the rich and famous Dakota. ** Flanderization. In the early going of the show, Chris was a jokester with a mean streak, but with the occasional PetTheDog moment. He gets progressively worse in each season, due to the [[ComedicSociopathy sadism]] that is the source of the shows "humor. Trouble is, the humor, while appreciable at first, has gotten so dark and mean spirited in the last few seasons, it can easily come off as DudeNotFunny to a lot of people. The 1,000 foot tall cliff in the first episode, which only two contestants were afraid of, and a few others got minor injuries from hitting the cliff or buoy, or landing in a split-leg position? Fine. In Season 4, Chris sends them into a radioactive mine with a time limit that will prove fatal if they don't complete the challenge quickly enough, AND equipping them with Time Bombs without their knowledge? [[MoralEventHorizon Not funny under ANY sane definition.]] * I've noticed this most with Pahkitew Island, but why is it that when these guys have any kind of interest in anyone, that becomes ''all'' they talk about? It's like... a RomanticPlotTumour instead because a Romantic CHARACTER tumour and overrides their personality. Is this what romance is, or is this what romance is like to an Aromantic? ** It's important to remember that in-universe Total Drama is a reality tv show. They only take the clips where they are talking about it, the players are likely carefully selected for personality types prone to various sorts of extreme behavior. When it's all added up it makes sense. Any talk that Chris doesn't think will increase ratings ends up on the cutting room floor and with good reason. [[/folder]]
