FAQ

What Grade is Ginger in? In Season 1 she is in the 7th Grade, in Season 2 she begins 8th grade, and now in Season 3 Ginger will start 9th Grade in High School.

Why is Ginger only airing like one time a week? Yes, Ginger used to air a lot of times a week, maybe Nick thought it wasn't being well received and decided to move the time further away so fans would start wondering. When will Ginger be in more places? I'm not sure yet, hopefully soon to find out.

I read on Don's ATBG site that each season has 20 episodes worth, why is there missing some episodes in the 3 ATBG Seasons? Nick has decided to air the 3 part episodes as actual 'TV Movies' or 'Specials'. Example: 'Far From Home'-the TV Movie (as listed)- would actually count as 3-part episodes to add to Season 2 or 3. and Same with 'Camp Caprice' and 'The Wedding Frame'.

I'm sick of waiting, when will new episodes air like they used to!? This is Nick's choice, obviously Nick decides after 1-2 seasons to air episodes far apart in order to save some. 'Then why are the Season 1-2 episodes aired close together?' - Probably because Nick wanted to be able to air at least 20-30 episodes without worrying if kids get sick of watching the same episodes over and over. But this is Nick's choice and I'm not going to speak for them.

What city does As Told By Ginger Take place in? The series takes place in the city of Sheltered Shrubs (this is a fictional city)

Characters

Ginger Ginger is a nervous, yet nice, 12 year old pre-teen. She is sister to Carl who she lives with, and also lives with her Mom. Her Dad wasn't that reliable and obviously left Ginger and her family. Ginger wants popularity and would mostly do ANYTHING for it!

Dodie Dodie is best friend to Ginger. Dodie is a gossip girl and drama queen. Dodie trys to be popular as well, but, it seems Ginger is getting more success then her, tough luck Dodie!

Macie Macie is friends with Dodie and Ginger. Macie may not be the most popular girl in the school, (well actually, she's quite a geek!) but, she is quite a laugh and a good friend to Ginger & Dodie.

Courtney Courtney is the most popular girl at her school. Courtney is obviously rich and thinks up in herself. Though, lately she's took a shine to Ginger. Ginger is Courtney's latest popular experiment.

Miranda Miranda is a nasty pre-teen who just wants popularity and best friendship to carry on with Courtney. Miranda hates Ginger because of Ginger and Courtneys latest friendship. But, who will be the winner?

Carl Carl is brother to Ginger and drives her up the wall, including there Mom! Carl just loves anything thats disgusting and dirty, he is best friend to Hoodsey.

Hoodsey Hoodsey is best friend to Carl and brother to Dodie. You wouldn't think they were brother and sister unless you saw they had the same parents and surname. Anyway... Hoodsey likes being naughty just as much as Carl, but, sometimes his Mom gets in the way.

Lois Lois is a caring Mom to Ginger and Carl. She always has a good joke and is like any other normal Mom.

  • Really Meh

    4.5
    Dont Care for this show
  • Eh, I didn't really care for this show.

    3.0
    I remember this show and I guarantee you, it was one of the worst "old" shows they ever had. It was awfully boring. Everything about this show was wicked boring, it was very unexciting, the characters were kind of lame, the music was depressing and this show was overall just blah. :P
  • Best show ever!

    10
    It was so great,

    So real.

    I loved Ginger's boyfriend Darren, and her friends, it really captured that 90s outlook for a teens point of view!

    The ending was a mas and masterrpiece!

    SPOLIER!

    Ginger got her books published and her and Darren have a little one
  • Hated This Show

    1.0
    This show reminds me a lot of the Rugrats. Not that it's for younger kids, but the animation and characters are just as stiff and terribly executed, all with boring teenage drama that speaks down to its audience. For better shows from Klasky Csupo, watch The Wild Thornberries and Rocket Power.
  • Not one of Nick's masterpieces, but it had the charm.

    8.0
    I'll write a much more detailed review on this show later, since it's late right now; but anyways, As Told by Ginger is one of the very, very few cartoons that is more realistic than the others. The thing is, realistic cartoons are very hard to execute properly mainly because well, it's a cartoon. Who wants to see an animated character doing every day middle school things like the average middle school kid, especially when it sometimes involves such dramatic problems between friends & family? While I will admit that this show was a bit boring on some parts, it managed to do it right & teach things to the kids that watched it.



    Sure the premise sounds boring, & an animated junior high version of Degrassi isn't something that strikes the attention of most people, but when given the chance, As Told By Ginger is a very well done cartoon, regardless of the realism involved.moreless
