Chuck's Choice is a Canadian animated television series produced by DHX Media for YTV that originally aired on YTV from May 6, 2017 to June 9, 2017 for 20 episodes.

Chuck's Choice follows Chuck McFarlane, an ordinary 12-year-old boy with an alien Robot Buddy named UD (short for U-Decide 3000). Chuck gets himself into lots of difficult situations, but whenever that occurs, UD enters "decider mode". Time freezes, and UD gives Chuck three reality-altering choices. Chuck has to choose one and it will come true, but not always in the way he expects. Always alongside Chuck and UD on their reality-bending misadventures is Chuck's best friend, Misha, a tough young lady who often saves Chuck from whatever monsters or threats they end up facing.

This show contains examples of the following tropes:

  • Balloon Belly: Sal (a lizard who got turned into a dragon) gets one after eating way too many cheesy foods, including a cheese wheel only missing a slice.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: The show's bread and butter.
  • Eaten Alive: Norm ends up inside Sal's belly at the end of "How To Restrain Your Dragon".
  • Every Episode Ending: At the end of every episode, UD shows us what would have happened if Chuck had made a different choice during UD's second "decider mode".
  • Force Feeding: An impatient UD shoves cereal into Chuck's mouth at the start of "Comet and Get It".
  • Frying Pan of Doom: Ms. Cho uses one in the final episode.
  • Iron Butt Monkey: Chuck, to the umpteenth degree. The boy gets beaten up a lot, especially in episodes like "Smarten Up Chuck", "Ultimate Chuck", and "The Dark Dingo and Possum Pete".
  • Never Say "Die": In "Comet and Get It", UD cuts himself off when he realizes in horror that Chuck won't be around when the former is old, and promptly shoves more cereal into the boy's mouth.
    UD: (to Chuck) [The comet] only passes Earth every 162 years, so the next time it's this close, I'll be old, and you'll be—(beat, then cringes) Um...! (shoves more cereal into the boy's mouth)
  • Nutritional Nightmare: "Bawk to the Future" features "Beak O' Chicken Chunks", which is two-and-a-half pounds of heavily seasoned chicken left out in the sun for half-a-day to ripen before being dipped in a bidet full of chipotle and mayo sauce before being served in an actual chicken beak. Chuck is enthralled by the idea, but Misha is understandably grossed out.
  • Sadistic Choice: Chuck's choice.
  • Thermometer Gag: Happens to Sal as part of the knights checking up on her, making her vomit up a nearly-complete cheese wheel.
  • Time Stands Still: UD has the power to do this so that Chuck can make his choice.
  • Tomboy: Misha.

Really, Chuck?! You SERIOUSLY thought those fireworks were "gift-wrapped Christmas logs"?!

How well does it match the trope?
