"Dear Mom and Dad I'm doin' fine,
You guys are on my mind.
You asked me what I wanted to be,
And now I think the answer's plain to see...
I wanna be famous!"A popular Canadian animated series produced by Teletoon from the creators of 6teen. The show is about 22 teens who sign up to star on a reality show similar to Survivor called Total Drama Island where they are divided into teams and given challenges every three or so days; whenever a team loses a challenge they have to vote one of their members off the show The last contestant standing wins $100,000, which from season 2 onwards is changed to $1,000,000.The first season takes place at Camp Wawanakwa, a campsite located on an island in an unspecified area in Muskoka, Ontario.The second season, Total Drama Action, lowers the contestant count to 14 and takes place on an abandoned film lot.The third season, Total Drama World Tour, has 15 old contestants and 2 new ones travelling to different locations all around the world.The fourth season, Total Drama Revenge of the Island, features an all new cast of 13 contestants and takes place at a now radioactive Camp Wawanakwa.A fifth season is currently in production, which will contain Fan-Favorites from previous seasons.Due to the nature of the show, all of the main characters are rather obvious and blatant stereotypes of reality show contestants and teenagers in general (such as the goth girl, the party-obsessed guy, the over-eager kid, etc.), and they are mostly Played for Laughs.
