Western Animation / Toadal Drama Island

Go To

Toadal Drama Island is a sprite animated Affectionate Parody where Total Drama meets Super Mario Bros.. The idea was first sprung up by Tyler Donnay, formerly Ilvgwebmaster and now known as the Retro Architect, and his friend Wyatt, Emoevan 7, as a spin-off to their other parody show, The Toad Show. The original show ran for 9 episodes before being cancelled. However, the show was Un-Canceled by Tyler, who attempted to remake it in Garry's Mod. After a year in Development Hell, the show ended due to personal problems within the cast. Most of the from the aforementioned reboot are lifted from scripts posted on Fan Fiction Dot Net.


The show has currently been dusted off yet again, now with Kyle Lazarko at the helm. The original creator and former actors will reappear yet again for this most recent installment. New contestants will feature this season as well as a few old ones getting the chopping block.


  • Abhorrent Admirer: Every season Birdo is this to Yoshi, so much to the point that Yoshi's entire personality is his fear of Birdo.
    • Though the lost scripts of the reboot attempt to establish Yoshi's Big Eater character after Birdo's Elimination.
  • Big Eater: Petey, Bowser, and Morton. Yoshi as well in Episode 9 of the Original and after Birdo's Elimination as previously mentioned.
  • Butt-Monkey: Donkey Kong is the literal butt monkey. He constantly gets killed in every scene he appears and cannot get a break.
    • Iron Butt-Monkey: Constantly being ressurected for more slapsticky deaths, Donkey Kong cannot seem to stay dead for too long.
  • The Chew Toy: DK yet again, and to a lesser extent the entire cast.
  • Death Is Cheap: No one is safe from death, however, rarely is anyone Killed Off for Real.
  • The Ditz: Petey and Daisy are easily the most dim of all the characters. However, Bowser does have his moments as well.
  • Gasshole: The Wario Bros.
  • Karma Houdini: Considering the first two show's early cancellations, Mario has never received his comeuppance.
  • Talking to Himself: Especially in the first season, when it was voiced by just two guys.
    Garry's Mod Reboot 
  • Big Bad: In the Special, Toadette becomes this after being left out of the season. Mario again returns as the principal antagonist, however he is much more subtle this time around.
  • Un-Canceled: In-Verse as well, the plot of the pilot is actually un-canceling the original show. That went well...
