Intro's Words Someone once told me the grass is much greener On the other side... Well I payed a visit, but it's possible I missed it. It seemed different, yet exactly the same. Yeah (yeah yeah yeah) 'Till further notice('till further notice) I'm in-between (I'm in-between) From where I'm standing (From where I'm standing) My grass is green. Someone once told me the grass is much greener... On the oth-er side...


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)


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.

    ATBG is one of the worst Nicktoons ever created, along with Chalkzone, The Wild Thornberrys, Breadwinners, Sanjay and Craig and Harvey Beaks.
  • Awesome

    Atbg is the best show! It inspired me to move on to the better things in life. I love AtBG it taught a lot of amazing life lessons!
  • Not Bad

    Its Intresting But Its Not Like Hey Arnold/Invader Zim/Pre-Movie Spongebob/etc.
  • one of the best series in the world.

    a lot of people seem to give bad reviews to tgis show so i suppose they enjoy fictional massive box office things with huge production, but this show isn't a cliche teenage series, the first few episodes were cliche. she and her friends trying to fit in, but as they grow bigger things get more complicated to them and their lives and there are bigger problems from love to heartbreak to depression to being betrayed by friends and yes still trying to fit in. and the great things about it is that ginger isn't a saint which makes it more real and that she has a jealous back stabbing friend who loves her but jealous of her and so selfish ad turns out to get worse every time she grows up, and she stays till the end her friend even though she's terrible. it means she loves her and can't move on from her like those cliche series, always do the good thing, she didn't she doesn't always do the good thing.

    and how Carl used to be a bad weird kid who always plot to do complicated pranks and have strange new ideas and thoughts to do something very odd but then he grow up and become less childish as he reaches middle school.

    they show us that the most popular and rich girl in school and the snobbiest one also have a good heart and isn't mean or anything just loves herself and attention. really great show and covered all of the thoughts that a teenager would have and all of the issues (well not all of them it's a kids show for god sake) they might face.

    just amazing and realistic. when you start to watch it you won't ever get enough of itmoreless
  • Eh, I didn't really care for this show.

    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
