''Chilly Beach'' is a Canadian animated series. The series is a comedic depiction of life in the fictional Canadian town of Chilly Beach, described by the producers as "a bunch of Canadians doing the stuff that Canadians do, like playing hockey, drinking beer, and being eaten by polar bears." ''Chilly Beach'' plays on nearly every conceivable stereotype that people have about Canadians in a satirical manner.

!!''Chilly Beach contains examples of:

* AssInAmbassador: The local US consul is grossly incompetent and belligerent towards the local population, attempting to run over people in her limousine and referring to a Mountie as "that guy in the bellhop costume."
* BottomOfTheBarrelJoke: The characters watch a terrible reality show, prompting April to comment that the network is really scraping the bottom of the barrel. Then Jacques changes the channel to a show that is actually called ''Scraping the Bottom of the Barrel''.
* BillyNeedsAnOrgan: One episode had Dale's estranged brother show up out of the blue and mention that he needs a kidney. Dale is quite reluctant to go through with it, however, a guy gives him a shout-down for letting his brother die. As it turns out, Dale's incompatible with his brother. [[spoiler:[[PlayedForLaughs Frank, on the other hand...]]]]
* BrainwashResidue: One episode has Frank turned onto a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Were-weinerdog]]. When he's turned back to a human, he finds he still enjoys squeaky toys.
* BulletCatch: Parodied when in a skating performance circus (long story), a man jumps into the air while on skates and attempts to catch a bullet in his teeth.
* CanadaEh
* ChessWithDeath: See TheGrimReaper below.
* ExactlyWhatIAimedAt: Parodied. After Dale takes a shot at the net, he declares: "He shoots, he!...." and, after many ricochets, the puck inevitably just goes up into the sky, causing him to finish with "... just misses the cloud he was aiming for."
* FallingInLoveMontage: A lampshade was hung on this in one episode: "Would you like to have a romantic montage with me?''.
* FamousNamedForeigner: A Russian hockey player named Gogol.
* TheGrimReaper: Death appears to take away Dale, who opts to [[ChessWithDeath challenge him]]. Then proceeds to annoy death by taking too long to pick what game they're going to play. Leading to this exchange:
--->'''Death:''' "CHOOSE! or I shall choose for you!"
--->'''Dale:''' [panicked] "Uh, hockey!"
--->'''Death:''' "Very well." [summons a hockey rink and puck, then proceeds to slapshot said puck into the goal so fast it buns a hole through the net] "...By the way, hockey is what ''I'' would have chosen."
--->'''Dale:''' "Aw, crap."
* ManInAKilt: The Scots-Canadian hermit decides to give the curling ice one final polish before a crucial game... so he lift up his kilt and pees on it. When someone reminds him that it's traditional to wear something under the kilt when there's a woman on the throne he sheepishly admits that it was laundry day.
* PolarBearsAndPenguins: A recurring character who was a polar bear with an English accent. His sidekick was a penguin.
* SixtyFiveEpisodeCartoon
* SpinningPaper
* StrawFeminist: April June is mostly a parody of this portrayal of feminism.
* WorstNewsJudgmentEver: One episode had two [[SpinningPaper spinning papers]] covering the local election, and a third announcing that "Small town can support three newspapers!"
* XDaysSince: One of the townspeople is changing a sign marked "Number of days Since Last Polar Bear Attack" from "0000" to "0001". He gets eaten by a polar bear and the number blows off.
