  • show Description
  • The Weekenders is a original Disney Channel show which focuses on a group of hardcore friends named Tino, Lor, Carver and Tish who spend their weekends trying to have as much fun as possible. While sometimes their weekends are far from what they plan, they usually manage to work together with the help of some advice from Tino's mother, and things usually work out in the end. Their weekends often consist of visiting various Pizza Parlors and ultimately to have the perfect weekend, though their weekends seldomly go as planned. The central setting of the cartoon is that it takes place only on the weekends, though in some cases it does show certain days of the week in order to show the cause of the episode or the end result thereof. It also has various quirks, like Tino's gray screen and the end-of-episode catchphrase, "Later days!". The Gang Tini Tonitini - Tino is the plan maker of the group even though his plans often turn into disasters while frequently adding to his list of phobias. Regardless, he greets every challenge with a sarcastic tone and is always reliable to help out his friends. He often asks his mother for help during dinner, though he usually would rather spend more time asking his mother for help than actually eating the bizarre dishes she cooks up. Lor McQuarrie - Lor is the tomboy of the group, which is likely credited to the fact that she has fourteen brothers. She is good at most sports and especially basketball, though her grades suffer due to her personality. She is a reliable friend in times of need and she does her best to help out when she can. She is usually eager to do most things, though when it comes to studying or speaking with her crush Thomson Oberman, she loses her nerve. Tish Katsufrakis - Tish is the brains and artist of the gang. She is a very nitpicky perfectionist and can get a little crazy at times in which she feels stressed. Many times her art can affect the gangs weekend but overall she is willing to use her abilities to help her friends and her family, though her complex nature often causes interesting circumstances despite her best efforts. Carver Decartes - Carver tries his best to be cool even though he isn't considered cool by the cool crowd. He is obsessed with his shoes and often times lead the gang to some bizarre ordeals. He tries not to feel bad about doing the wrong thing but usually his conscience catches up with him and comes back to help his friends when they need him. The Weekenders still comes on Toon Disney at various times and still is shown on The Disney Channel.moreless

    • Tino's mom's dish: Squid.

    • When the series aired on Toon Disney and on ABC, the episodes always aired in pairs of two, since it required two stories to make up a full half-hour episode.

    • Lor's voice is somewhat different in this episode, despite being voiced by Grey Delisle.

    • This episode has no pizza place in it, unlike a majority of the other episodes.

    • This episode begins on Saturday instead of the usual Friday.

    • Thompson first appears in this episode.

    • Pizza Place: Frankenstein Pizza

    • This is the first episode according to production order. That's why Tino introduces himself in the beginning.

    Trivia (56)

    • In this episode, Tino doesn't want anyone to know he asked his mom for advice, yet in episodes shortly after, he says it in public (i.e. the pizza parlors).

    • When Lor holds her head in her hands after her "makeover", her shirt is all black, where only her sleeves should be black.

    • At the pizza place, Tish's shirt briefly turns white.

    • When Mrs. Tonitini gives Tino the eggs (this is when he's all 'grown up') the camera switches to Mrs. Tonitini and then returns to Tino. There is around less than a minute switch and it appears that Tino is already done his eggs. Is it even possible to eat your like 3 eggs in less than a minute without choking yourself or having your mouth full?

    • Tino gets overly excited about a Jumping Jamboree with a giant clown on top. In a later episode we learn that just the sight of a clown scares him yet here he has no problem with jumping around inside of a giant clown.

    • There is a scene where Lor is carrying a large tray of biscuits and gravy. She drops it when her friends suddenly pull her to watch a video tape. Shortly after and still in the same scene, we see the whole room but there's no big mess on the floor anywhere!

    • In the scene with Tino and Tish in the mall, look at Tino's left arm. He's wearing a watch in one scene, though he isn't in the next scene.

    • How was Carver supposed to know that a computer game was going to help Lor when he wasn't around when Lor developed the interest in computer games?
