    Hey kids, welcome to The Big Comfy Couch where learning is fun!

    The Big Comfy Couch is about a little clown named Loonette and her doll Molly with their Big Comfy couch. The couch has everything known to man inside it - be it an umbrella, a hat, or a kitchen sink! Co-stars include Granny Garbanzo, Auntie Macassar (Seasons 1-5), and Major Bedhead, who pops in for visits. And unbeknownst to Loonette, two dustbunnies, Fuzzy and Wuzzy, live under Loonette's couch.

    The Big Comfy Couch ran on YTV from 1993-1997. During that stretch, it became a hit on America Public Television. Key to that success was the foresight of John Cherry (former director of Ernest P. Worrell commercials), who has gone on to handle The Big Comfy Couch properties in the United States under what is now called Tadpole Kids.

    After five off-years, The Big Comfy Couch returned to production with its sixth series of 13 shows, released in 2003, bringing with it a new character, Uncle Chester. Handling U.S. disribution of the series are American Public Television and Nashville Public Television (Npt). Air dates for Season 6 refer to their initial broadcast on Npt, which had first run of the sixth series.

    Canadian viewers can see The Big Comfy Couch on Treehouse (a branch of YTV).

    Reboot is a Canadian animated show about Sprites that live inside a computer. "I come from the Net--through systems, peoples, and cities--to this place: MAINFRAME. My format: Guardian. To mend and defend--to defend my new found friends, their hopes and dreams, and to defend them from their enemies."

    -Bob's narration from the opening sequence of Reboot (Seasons One, Two, and Four)

    Welcome to the city of Mainframe, a computer system inhabited by binomes and sprites who go about their business, trying to keep everything running smoothly. Unfortunately, they live under the constant threat of the User, whose games wreak havoc, if left unchecked, and the viruses Hexadecimal and Megabyte, who seek to infect and replace the system core with their own malicious code. That's where Guardian Bob comes in. Armed with his versatile key-tool, Glitch, he tries his best to keep citizens safe, upholding his mandate: "To Mend and Defend".

    While ReBoot started as an children's show on ABC, it was later forced to move to other venues, using the increased creative freedom to change its focus towards increased continuity and more intelligent and mature stories during the latter part of the second season. The writers also satirized other TV shows, such as X-Files, as well as video games, such as The Evil Dead, which became something of a "trademark" for the show.

    The third season of ReBoot is currently available on 4 DVDs from ADV Films.

    Also, I would like to stress that NO links to Bit.Torrent sites be posted on the forums, as downloading is illegal on TVTOME.COM and can ruin its long-standing reputationmoreless

    YTV (ended 1997)
    Rupert the Bear was a popular show in the early and mid-nineties. However, the Rupert craze actually began in 1920. When the common British newspaper, "The Daily Express", realized that to actually compete with rival newspapers they would need a children's comic. The owner of the paper, Lord Beaverbrook consulted one of his chief editors, R.D. Blumenfield, about this issue. Blumenfield was having a difficult time devising an appropriate character that would be entertaining for the children yet proper enough to please their parents. One day Blumenfield approached another one of the newspaper's prominent editors, Henry Toutel about his dilemma. Toutel informed Blumenfield that his wife was a relatively well-known cartoonist and children's book writer. Henry told his wife, Mary, about the cartoon project. She was able to create the ideal character for the cartoon, so the "Daily Express" offered her the job of creating the comic. Mary excitedly accepted the offer. The first Rupert comic, titled "The Adventures of a Little, Lost Bear" premiered on November 8, 1920. The cartoon consisted of two drawings with a brief caption beneath them. Mary continued to be the sole creator of the cartoon until 1935, when her eyesight began to fail. At that point Alfred Bestall was appointed as Mary's substitute. His term was to be six weeks, but he crafted the cartoon so excellently, that he was given a permanent position. In 1936 the first of an ongoing annual collection of "The Adventures of a Little, Lost Bear" was published in book form. Bestall continued his role as comic artist and writer until his retirement in 1965, thirty years after he took the temporary job. After Bestall's retirement several other local artists replaced him. Even today Rupert's cartoon is being published daily in the "Daily Express". In 1991, an animated series based on the Rupert, the lead character in "The Adventures of a Little, Lost Bear" was released. The television series had slight variations from the comic, and the series was called "The Adventures of Rupert the Bear" was created. This series focused on the life and trials of young bear named, Rupert. Rupert lived in a magical village with his friends and family. Every episode featured one of Rupert's whimsical adventures. The series was a huge hit in Britain because it was much like the comic, except now Rupert was able to reach a wider audience by way of television. Later, Rupert was shown in the United States on Nickelodeon. The series ceased production in 1997, and is no longer aired in the United States, but it is still very popular in England. Rupert and his friends are positive role models for children, so I am certain that they will continue to reach large audiences through television.

    Twenty years after the feature-length adaptation of Richard Adams' best-seller, we return to the South Downs to retell the story of the rabbits of Watership Down. Whilst not quite as 'gritty' as the book or film, and reduced in natural detail by the necessity's of tv animation the 'Watership Down' series still hold true to the spirit of its source material. The rabbits and animals, to all intents and purposes, are real animals - not mere 'cartoons' or 'toons' - and an attempt has been made to incorporate the rabbits spiritual beliefs in Black Rabbit of Inle, Flayrah, and more.moreless

Thanks to the meteor, Fred's brother-in-law Harry was transformed into a fly with a human head and his four-year-old son Turner was transformed into a hulking six-footer. The other members of the family are Fred's wife Casey, their other children Tina and Ike, and Harry's wife Idella. Maniac Mansion is a unique blend of the droll humour of the SCTV gang, the zaniness of the LucasArts computer game (on which it was based) and the warmth of a traditional family sitcom. It has been described as everything from "the looniest, sweetest family comedy of the year" (Time Magazine) to "David Lynch on helium" (Daniel Cerone, Los Angeles Times). Maniac Mansion was a half-hour sitcom that originally aired between 1990 and 1993 on YTV in Canada and the Family Channel in the United States.

    Wimzie's House, an educationally entertaining series for preschool kids, premiered on YTV Canada 11 September 1995. Its PBS debut occurred 1 September 1997, after the series' production ended. The series presented the delightful adventures of Wimzie, a playful five-year-old puppet monster; her baby brother, Bo; her parents, Gratziella and Rouso-a bird/airplane pilot and dragon/firefighter, respectively; her lively 150-year-old grandmother Yaya, and her adorable puppet monster friends. Together, they learned skills of caring and sharing at Wimzie's House-a home daycare center unlike any other. Through unforgetable learning adventures and original toe-tapping sing-along songs, young viewers were introduced to topics like friendship, generosity, jealousy, diversity, and sibling rivalry, all from a preschooler's point of view. The award-winning series was created with a renowned team of educational advisors and designed to nurture children's sense of identity, expand their relationships, stimulate their curiousity, and encourage self-expression and self-esteem. Wimzie's House helped children learn to express themselves and communicate with their families and friends. From Yaya's cozy kitchen, where the kids experimented with culinary projects, to the comfortable living room couch where they curled up for naptime, Wimzie's House provided the perfect place to explore both social and family issuesthat children face everyday. The series' characters and setting were just familiar enough for kids to identify with, but different enough to underscore the fact that the action takes place in an enchanted fantasy world of monsters. Wimzie's House was produced for YTV Canada and aired in America as one of PBS's successful shows. While it still airs daily on YTV Canada's offshoot Treehouse, Wimzie's House was removed from PBS September 30, 2001. The real tragedy of the PBS cancellation was that, out of 112 shows, only 85 programs were aired in America.

    Welcome, fellow prisoners, to TV.com Radio Active page! Here you can read and share information with other Radio Active fans. Post in the message board, visit other fan pages, and vote for your favourite episode! The YTV Radio Active schedule is now available on this guide (scroll down to view all the episodes being shown on YTV for the days to come). This series deals a bunch of teenagers in High School (should be in Grade 12 by the end of the third season), who runs a Radio Broadcasts about news around the school, and contains edutainment shows and factors and music. In all three seasons, George Goodwin, Morgan Leigh, Tanya Panda, Blaire Resnickie, Roger Richards, Kevin Calvin, and Ethan St. John faces problems, school work, social stuff just like in reality. CHARACTERS GEORGE GOODWIN: George is a fool and is always unpredictable. A weird teenager who is not aware with what is happening around him. He is always confused and does not understand most things. He has a very strange personality and attitude. The spikey-haired guy that is a master at science and technology, but he only reveals this for a while before he becomes an idiot again. You never know what his grades are in school because all his work that are handed in is different from the others. Likes spending with his uncle Tibby and reading Normal Man comics, and has a very strange reality. No one understands how George does something incredibly ingenious or completely stupid. He one day wants to become a janitor, a quick or snappy dry cleaner, testing mattresses, or a mime. MORGAN LEIGH: The most productive worker at Radio Active, and has a history of very well done shows. She likes to think for herself and is able to help her fellow Radio Active friends with her cleaver ideas. Witty and reliable, she still hates the school system - she thinks that all the work that is given out are useless. She does not like Ms. Atoll but it is always covered up in front of the teacher. She one day hopes to become a film director. TANYA PANDA: A quiet and cautious person who wants to one day become a psychic. The most serious person in the group, she helps the entire group have peace among each other. She loves reading the horoscopes and tried to pursue a psychiatrist career. BLAIRE RESNICKIE: Perhaps the most unintelligent teenager in the school at the moment. Just like Kevin, he is only doing well in sports. He is always looking for new girlfriends and is unaware what they think of him. The competitive jock is born a leader, and wants to carry that through Radio. He has wacky plans that never actually work and he is one of the coolest people in the school. At the end of the series, he can become smart whenever he wants to - just by being hit in the head and can be reversed just by making the same action. ROGER RICHARDS: His ultimate goal is to please others. He believes his criticisms of others are entertaining and cool but everyone knows sooner or later that they too will be at the receiving end of one of his remarks. An intellectual being, he receives good marks while sucking up to Ms. Atoll. A weasel (stated by Tanya using psychiatrical terms), just like Ethan who does anything to get what he wants. KEVIN CALVIN: Incredibly dumb, he still thinks he is very smart compared to the others in his group. He is the captain of the hockey team and also joins other sports team to continue his popularity. He almost never had a chance to date any hot babes roaming the halls of Upper Redwood High, and is determined to please each one so they would go out with him. He has a very big ego, and is referred to as "boss" of Radio Active by Ethan St. John, he is a born leader and his ideas are lame and never work, but at the end, he sometimes make up the damage he has done. ETHAN ST. JOHN: Very concerned about his stocks and bank account, he is the biggest businessman and scam salesman in Radio Active. A big dweeb and suck, he carries his cell phone or pager with him everywhere. He has it with him to communicate with his mother. One of his most respectable shows on Radio Active is "The Stock Report". He wishes to be rich, so he can have lots of money to buy whatever he wants, so he does not need to go around the school selling different objects that do not seem to be whatever he is selling. He sells anything he can get his hands on - anything that is used and do not work at all, food that are not edible, liquids that do not do whatever he says it does, or forging different items. MR. ANGUS NOSEWORTHY: A laid-back vice principal of discipline who is clumsy and has no self-discipline. Miz Atoll is constantly trying to provoke him into action. But he has his own method for running the school and being stern is definitely not part of it. He constantly talks about "when I was your age..." anecdotes that are related to the student's topic but never solves their problem. MS. NOELLE ATOLL: She's a stern, set in her ways literature teacher who's respected by her students. She doesn't want to be responsible for "this self-indulgent mis-adventure in extra curricular activity", but she's been stuck with the job of moderating Radio Active. She does her absolute best to make life as miserable as possible for those foolish enough to sign up for Radio Active. No one ever quite understands what she wants because she sets something for the students to work on, but in her mind, she does not want them to follow her orders so she can send out multiple detentions or see them fail. SARAH LEIGH: Younger sister of Morgan's who constantly annoys/interrupts the group while they are at work. She loves entering the anteroom in the first season because her true love, Kevin is present. She signed up for mail duty multiple times, and glides through the halls with her roller blades to give mail to the students and teachers. She is full of insincere compliments for everyone.moreless

    Once upon a time, there was a knight called YUSHA which means "great brave(or hero if you prefer)". He had beaten the king of darkness in a legendary duel... At the end of the battle, the monsters who were under control of the king of darkness, were freed from the spell and began to live a normal life on the isle of Demurin, situated in the southern part of the world. FLY is the only human on the island. He arrived there after a shipwreck and has been grown up by Burasu, a monster sage. Fly dreams to become a brave but he can't use magic. One day, something strange happens on Demurin. All the monsters turn bad again and begin to kill. The king of darkness must have been resurrected and the spell he once casted on the monsters is working again now. But fortunately ABAN, brave tutor, and his disciple POPPU (a magician, still an apprentice), arrive on Demurin and Aban installs a dome that protects from evil with his famous incantation MAHOKATORU. Impressed by Fly's hability handling a sword, Aban begins a special training for him. But on the third day, when Fly has just achieved the sword techniques CLEAVE THE EARTH and CLEAVE THE SEA, the king of darkness, HADORA appears!!! A battle between Aban and Hadora engages and it seems that the brave who saved the world fifteen years ago is no one else but Aban. But Hadora is stronger than ever before. Moreover he is supported by the GOD OF DARKNESS, BAN. Aban tries to contain Hadora's attacks but in vain. As he doesn't want his disciples to be involved in this he casts a spell on them (ASUTORON) which transforms their bodies in a piece of metal. In this way they are protected from any possible spell or attack, but are not able to move anymore. He offers Fly and Poppu a talisman, symbolizing the end of the training. After that, he attempts a new attack on Hadora. He grips him and invokes MEGANTE, a spell wich provokes a huge explosion by destroying the user's body. Alas Aban's sacrifice was in vain because Hadora survives. He plans to eleminate our friends when suddenly Fly manages to escape from the spell casted by Aban and counters Hadora. Hadora is at first surprised by the strength of the eleven-year old boy. But then he notices a mark on his forehead!!! It ressembles to a dragon's head!!! Hadora knows this mark and fears it more than everything. This mark only appears on the forehead of a DRAGON KNIGHT. But Hadora underestimates Fly because he's still a kid. Fly manages to beat Hadora by using Aban's secret technique ABAN SLASH. Hadora can escape though, but he swears to battle Fly again and beat him. That's how Fly and Poppu decide to pursue Aban's mission. They leave Demurin and sail to the continent of Rainriba where the kingdom of Romusu lies. Fly is a good friend of the king and he wants to ask him help to go to Papunika on the continent of Horukia. The princess of Papunika is also an intimate connection of Fly (he met her at the very beginning of the story, it was also the first time that the strange mark did appear on his forehead).moreless

    This is a children's game show. The main focus of the tasks set was to get the participants, and sometimes the audience, messy. The show involved three teams of two each assigned a different colour. The teams took turns spinning a wheel. The wheel could land on ordinary things such as trivia rounds or point reversals, or land on "Mayhem" or "Uh Oh." Mayhem had the partner of the kid who spun the wheel get assigned a task that usually involved, dirt, goo, slime, or basically anything that got the kid messy. Uh Oh was where the partner is locked in a room and the child who spun the wheel gets asked a question. If they get it right the partner stays clean. If they get it wrong the "Punisher" dumped goo on the imprisoned child. The second part of the show involves kids across Canada competing in an obstacle course that is located away from the studio. The teams vote on which child they think is going to win. If they guessed right they get points. Part three is the same format as the first part only the partners reverse roles.moreless

    Welcome to the System Crash guide at TV.com. This television series features weekly "Lambton Reports" which was designed by teenagers at Lambton High, and the groups' reporters travel across the school to find out about the school's condition and the students' problems to entertain other students. Instead of a school newspaper, the Media club makes a comedy video show of all the bizarre stuff that goes on. Their goal is to have more viewers than the other entertainment groups in the school. So, they must choose interesting ideas, everything that is going on in the school such as sports information, losers, other news, and the history of some of the strangest students of Lambton in the past. The show goes on the closed circuit TV station at lunch hour, but sometimes the media club get distracted by bad lunches, school bullies, and unexpected detentions.

    BEAU The preppy, "every hair in place" practical joker of the group. He may look cute and innocent, but don't turn your back on this guy! Beau is also a budding millionaire, with his Lambton Shopping Channel segments, designed to sell the whole school useless trinkets and new age cures.

    ZOE The politically aware, vegetarian, sensitive one of the bunch. She is always looking for new causes to become active in. The TV show is a way to help her save the world. Her Parent Service Announcements are designed to help parents learn how to keep their kids from embarrassment.

    JAMES The ultimate class clown. He's the new kid but has no problem making friends, and his being disrespectful to teachers only adds to his popularity. James pretends he's not afraid of anything, but he will cave in at the slightest threat. His nervousness is covered up with practical jokes, but he really wants to please everyone and fit in.

    SAMANTHA Just moved to Lambton with her family, who sometimes stifles her individuality. At school, she's the most down-to-earth one of the pack. She doesn't fall victim to the latest trends and can see right through people's fakery. Although she can be sarcastic at times, Samantha can also be a loyal and helpful friend.

    BOBBY With his quick comebacks and smart-alec remarks, he usually makes short work of them. He's also very talented in manipulating people - one of those being his Vice-Principal mom. All in all, though, Bobby does have a heart of gold beneath that tough exterior.
