->''"Welcome to my very own show!"''

Angela Anaconda is a [[CanadianSeries Canadian]] AnimatedSeries starring, well, the title character. The [[CloudCuckoolander imaginative]] Angela and her friends, Gina Lash, Johnny Abatti, and Gordy Rhinehart, go to school with [[AlphaBitch Nanette]] [[FrenchJerk Manoir]] and her GirlPosse, and get into all sorts of wacky hijinks. The series lasted from October, 1999 to February, 2002. A total of 60 episodes.

How's this show different? Well, there's the ClipArtAnimation (everyone is animated as a black-and-white cutout). There's also the fact that OnceAnEpisode, Angela would go into a long ImagineSpot, in which Nanette Manoir (And occasionally Angela's JerkAss older brothers and Mrs. Brinks) would get elaborately humiliated. Otherwise... [[ClicheStorm yeah.]] Though it still has its fans.

Interesting to note, the show actully started off as a short on {{Nickelodeon}}'s ''{{Kablam}}''. When it was developed into its own series, it wound up on a different network (in the U.S. it was [[Creator/ABCFamily Fox Family]]). Furthermore, thanks to the network switch, Fox owned the rights to the series, leading to pretty much any episode of ''{{Kablam}}'' with this show's shorts caught up in copyright disputes.

Another interesting note is that one of the animators was Ian D'Sa, who is recognizable to Canadian rock fans as the guitarist and backup vocalist for BillyTalent.

The show's award-winning Flash-animated website is still up after all these years, and is pretty impressive for the time it was made. You can visit it [[http://angelaa.com/detect.htm here.]] (You have to pass through a couple of loading screens to reach the site proper.)

!!This show provides examples of:

* ALadyOnEachArm: Johnny Abatti's uncle Nicky travels around with [[{{OT3}} two unnamed girlfriends]].
* AlliterativeName: Angela Anaconda.
* AlphaBitch: Nanette.
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: By virtue of the animation. Oddly, more often than not said color was grey.
* BeYourself: The plot of an entire episode centered around Gordy and his father.
* BigDamnKiss: Mrs. Brinks plants one on Mr. Brinks in one episode, to the disgust of everyone around them.
* BigEater: Gina.
* BilingualBonus: Anyone with even a rudimentary knowledge of French knows that Nanette Manoir doesn't understand one word of it. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] on the show itself when an ''actual'' French exchange student (who ''can'' speak French) visits and very nearly exposes this secret.
** It's lampshaded all the time by Angela herself, who is constantly berating Nanette for how 'un-French' she is. Among other things, Nanette claims that the word 'viola' is French for 'violin', when in fact they're two different instruments - the ''actual'' French word for violin being 'violon'.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: Nanette is something of a subversion - pretty much everyone realises how mean and horrible she is, with the notable exception of Mrs. Brinks.
** And even Mrs. Brinks has the occasional donning moment, like one episode where it ends with Mrs. Brinks finding out Nanette wrote rude things about her in a letter to Angela under an alias.
* BookDumb: Johnny Abatti. A bit of a RunningGag is that he can't do math.
** Angela goes in-and-out; not to the level of Johnny Abatti though.
* BookOnTheHead: The books Nanette uses for correcting her posture tend to get hair gel stains. The school librarian bans her from borrowing books because of that.
* CampStraight: Gordy Rhinehart.
* ClipArtAnimation: They got a model to come in and they took about 30 pictures for each mouth movement they could have possibly needed. They used different Face Models for most of the main characters; an exception was the episode 'French Connection' where Angela and Nannette Manoir's Face were recycled to make their respective foreign exchange student counterparts.
* CloudCuckoolander: Angela, and also her friend Gina
* CoolOldLady: Angela's grandmother, who goes on all sorts of wild adventures and even keeps [[CoolPet an alligator]] as a pet. Notably, she [[GenerationXerox looks just like Angela, but with white hair]], so although Angela is unnerved by (and yet still admires) her wildness, it's implied that this will be her in the future.
* CryptidEpisode: In one episode, Angela and her friends go looking for a yet- erm, [[InsistentTerminology sasquatch]].
* ComedicSociopathy: In the episode where Angela slips on the ice Angela's friends react by [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment insulting her with insults]]
** Angela's ImaginationSpot can verge on this as well.
* DeadpanSnarker: Angela, every now and again, got a few zingers in.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Angela was constantly speaking in redundant phrases, [[VerbalTic on account of]] they were superfluous.
* DisappearedDad: Gina.
* TheDitz: Johnny Abatti and Candy May.
* DumbMuscle: Angela's brothers.
* FallenPrincess: In one episode, Karlean's parents cut off her money and Nanette kicks her out of her GirlPosse. She proceeds to get plenty of PetTheDog moments...before goes back to being the RichBitch.
* FatBestFriend: Gina.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: Angela (The Melancholic), Gordy (The Phlegmatic), Gina (The Choleric), and Johnny (The Sanguine).
* FrenchJerk: Nanette, despite being from Quebec, puts a full-blown stereotypically Parisian act.
** Averted with the French exchange student who is much friendlier.
* FullNameBasis: Angela always addresses and refers to characters by their full names, with the exception of her teacher.
** In Nanette's case, she alternates between this and names such as 'Ninny-poo' and 'Ninny-wart'.
** Some of the characters do it too.
* GenerationXerox: Angela's grandmother looks exactly like Angela, but with white hair.
* GirlPosse: Karlean and January.
* GradeSkipper: Nanette was temporarily moved up as a result of Mrs. Brinks [[TeachersPet favoring her]] while grading.
* GratuitousFrench: Nanette, even though her French makes [[KingOfTheHill Peggy Hill's Spanish]] superb.
* GreenEggsAndHam: The town's main export is broccoli, they even have a day celebrating it. Angela hates the stuff, but enters a broccoli themed art competition and wins which necessitates her to give a speech to the town extolling it's taste. She tries to bluff her way through, until she's forced to eat some on stage and it turns out she does like it and has never actually tried it before. Though it could use some ketchup.
* HappilyMarried: Mr. and Mrs. Brinks
** Actually, most married couples on the show
* HenpeckedHusband: Mr. Brinks
* ImagineSpot: Happens OnceAnEpisode.
* {{Jerkass}}: Nanette, Angela's older brothers. Angela could be one too in her imagination, imagining all of the rather cruel things she would like to do to Nanette, her brothers, Mrs. Brinks...heck whoever made her mad by [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment doing something that made her angry.]]
* JerkJock: Angela's brothers, and occasionally Coach Rinehart.
* JockDadNerdSon: Coach Rinehart and Gordy.
* KarmaHoudini: When Nanette does something bad, she often gets away with it. One of the worst examples is in Be-Trayed where the teacher makes a ''huge'' deal about a tray being thrown away by mistake. Angela confesses despite not doing it...when it was actually Nanette who did it and manages to ''avoid'' being punished because she ''didn't'' confess. Angela gets punished for lying.
** And when Nanette ''does'' get embarrassed or gets what's coming to her, that's what makes it all the more satisfying.
** Abatti's uncle also once ''auctions off the Menorah'' that belonged to Gina's great-grandmother...and seems to get away with it.
* LarynxDissonance: Mrs. Brinks' voice is obviously a man doing an impression of a woman.
* LaserGuidedKarma: This happens to Nanette now and then when she's not being a KarmaHoudini.
* LimitedWardrobe
* LotsOfLuggage: An episode had the AlphaBitch Nanette assigned to hike with the same team as Angela and her friends. Nanette demands that the others help her carry what she packed, and at one point pulls out a hair dryer and asking where she can find an outlet.
* MissingMom: Gordy.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny
* ParentalAbandonment: Johnny Abatti appears to live with his uncle and grandmother.
* PepperSneeze: One episode is centered around it.
* PetTheDog: Actually, plenty:
** The Chanukah moment where Nanette takes the Menorah after all sorts of different antics to get it back, and tells everyone else to just bug off. But then she and her family return it to Gina and ''her'' family.
** Mrs. Brinks in the Jiggly Fruit episodes, as well as the times she admits she made a mistake and apologizes to Angela. (The school store episode) She also negotiates a trade with Angela a couple times, letting Angela get out of trouble.
** Karlean gets some in the episode "Kar-lean on me", being the most developed out of Nanette's GirlPosse.
* PreppyName: Nanette Manoir
* ThePrimadonna: Nanette, when starring in a school play, and when having a statue made of her by Angela's mother.
* RegalRinglets: Nanette Manoir wears her long blond hair in this style, and speaks with a stereotypically "rich girl" Valley Girl accent and is a complete snob. She's very obsessed with her looks and considers herself extremely beautiful.
* RichBitch: Nanette Manoir. Her GirlPosse of Karlean and January are also the same.
* SadistTeacher: Mrs. Brinks is certainly not a Sadist...but holy crap sometimes you just ''hate'' her. She blatantly favours Nanette Manoir, implicitly because Nanette is the daughter of a rich family, and so almost always takes her side against Angela's.
* SecondPlaceIsForWinners: Angela wasn't interested at all in the school's relay race until one of her friends found a clue suggesting the first prize had the initials [="MB"=] and they assumed it meant "Mapperson's Bakery" and the winning team would eat for free there. Nanette's team won and the first prize turned out to be watching slides from '''M'''rs. '''B'''rinks' vacation trip. Being a TeachersPet, Nanette couldn't refuse. The consolation prize turned out to be what they thought the first prize would be.
* ShowWithinAShow: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X57LrcA_TDs One whole episode]] was about Angela and her friends going to see ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}: TheMovie'', of all things. Said episode was shown before said movie on both theatrical and DVD versions.
** Though when it aired as an actual episode in the show, they removed all mention of Digimon and called it MegaGiants.
* SpinOff: From ''{{Kablam}}!''
* ShoutOut: Mrs. Yamaguchi appears to sound like a certain [[{{Seinfeld}} soup nazi]]...
* {{Squick}}: In-universe example. During "Snow day", Angela sees Mrs. Brinks and her husband sledding down a hill ''naked''. And yes, before FridgeLogic sets in...the characters even ask why they would be sledding down a hill ''naked'' during a ''snow day'' and that it's just an invitation to get Hypothermia. Another episode implies they also do the same while ''ice-skating''!
** They also play "Naked Badminton" in their backyard.
* StockYuck: Angela hates broccoli, [[IDoNotLikeGreenEggsAndHam until she actually tries it that is]].
* TeachersPet: Nanette.
* TeenGenius: Gina.
* TerrifiedOfGerms: Gordy Rhinehart has this happen to him in one episode.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Mr. and Mrs. Brinks
* UnreliableNarrator: Invoked for comedy in the "Nanette lock" episode.
* UranusIsShowing
* VerbalTic: Angela with "on account of".
** She also uses [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment redundant words in sentences]]. Like "this week was supposed to be a big week for all us tapwaterspringsians who live in tapwater springs", or "the end of the line starts at the end" and don't forget Baloney and Ketchup sandwiches are her "All time favourite food of all time"
