    Nickelodeon (ended 2008)
    In a lost age, the world is divided into four nations: the Water Tribes, the Earth Kingdom, the Fire Nation, and the Air Nomads. Within each nation, there is a remarkable order of men and women called the "benders" who can learn to harness their inborn talent and manipulate their native element. Bending is a powerful form combining martial art and elemental magic. In each generation, only one bender is solely capable of controlling all four elements. That bender is the Avatar. The Avatar is the spirit of the world manifested in human form. When the Avatar dies, it reincarnates into the next nation in the cycle. Starting with the mastery of his or her native element, the Avatar learns to bend all four elements. Throughout the ages, the countless incarnations of the Avatar have served to keep the four nations in harmony. Then, the Fire Nation launched a war against the other three nations. Just as the world needed the Avatar the most, he mysteriously vanished. A hundred years later, the Fire Nation is near final victory in its ruthless war of world domination. The Air Nomads were destroyed, the Air Temples ravished, and all airbender monks eradicated. The Water Tribes were raided and driven to the brink of extinction. The Earth Kingdom remains and fights a hopeless war against the Fire Nation. Many believe the Avatar was never reborn into the Air Nomads and the cycle is broken. In the desolated South Pole, a lone Water tribe struggles to survive. It is here that the village's last remaining waterbender Katara and her warrior brother Sokka rescue a strange 12-year-old boy named Aang who has been suspended in hibernation in an iceberg. The Water tribe soon discovers that Aang is not only an Airbender--the extinct race no one has seen in a century--but also the long lost Avatar. Now Katara and Sokka must safeguard the child Avatar in his journey to master all four elements and save the world from the Fire Nation. Season 1 is titled "Book One: Water", and Season 2 is titled "Book Two: Earth." Each of these seasons contains twenty "chapters." Season 3 is titled "Book Three: Fire", and contains 21 "chapters." Also Known As...: UK: Avatar: The Legend of Aang Latin America: Avatar: La Leyenda de Aang (The Legend of Aang) Brazil: Avatar: A Lenda de Aang (The Legend of Aang) Italy: Avatar: La Leggenda di Aang (The Legend of Aang) Germany: Avatar: Der Herr Der Elemente (The Master of the Elements) Spain:Avatar: La leyenda de Aang (The Legend of Aang) Holland: Avatar: De legende van Aang (The Legend of Aang) Opening Themes: The Pilot: Water. Earth. Fire. Air. My grandmother used to tell me stories about the old days. The time of peace. When the Avatar kept balance between Water Tribes, Earth Kingdom, Fire Nation, and Air Nomads. But that all changed when the Fire Nation attacked. Only the Avatar masters all four elements. Only he can stop the ruthless firebenders. But when the world needed him most, He vanished. One hundred years have passed, and Fire Nation is nearing victory in the war. Two years ago, my father and the men of my tribe journeyed to the Earth Kingdom to help fight against the Fire Nation, leaving me and my brother to look after our tribe. Some people believe that the Avatar was never reborn into Air Nomads, and that the circle is broken. But I haven't lost hope. I still believe that, somehow, The Avatar will return to save the world. Chapters 3+ Water. Earth. Fire. Air. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony, But everything changed when the fire nation attacked. Only the Avatar, the master of all four elements, could stop them. But when the world needed him most, he vanished. One hundred years passed and my brother and I discovered the new Avatar, an airbender named Aang. Although his airbending skills are great, He has a lot to learn before he's ready to save anyone. But I believe, Aang can save the world. The show retains the same opening theme through the second and third season. All three opening themes are voiced by Mae Whitman as Katara.moreless

    SpongeBob SquarePants

    Nickelodeon
    SpongeBob SquarePants is one of the highest-rated children's cartoon shows of the era and of all time. It follows a naive and eternally optimistic sea-sponge named SpongeBob SquarePants and his endeavors in the underwater town of Bikini Bottom. Many supporting and equally popular characters tag along with SpongeBob, including a starfish, a squid, a crab, and even a squirrel who lives underwater. The show first aired on May 1st, 1999, and quickly took off with children. The series won 2 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Special Class Animated Program and Outstanding Sound Editing - Animation. The show is just as popular now as it ever was! Cast of Characters SpongeBob SquarePants - SpongeBob is the main character of the series and, as stated before, is somewhat dim-witted, sometimes to the point of driving his brighter friends up the wall. Despite this shortcoming, SpongeBob is a selfless creature. SpongeBob is a well-known fry cook at the Krusty Krab, Bikini Bottom's premier daytime eatery, and for good reason. No one denies that SpongeBob makes a delicious Krabby Patty, the burger of choice at the restaurant. SpongeBob lives in his pineapple home with his pet snail Gary. Patrick Star - Patrick is SpongeBob's best friend and is not the brightest fish in the sea - he lives under a rock, after all. Usually, SpongeBob and Patrick come up with a clueless idea that they think will be fun, but they usually end up in a lot of trouble for it. Because of his personality and dim-witted antics, Patrick is one of the most popular characters in the series. Squidward Tentacles - Squidward is a snobbish squid who lives in a moai between the houses of the two people he hates the most - SpongeBob and Patrick. He is constantly unhappy, mainly because of their antics. They have somehow been misinformed that Squidward is their friend, so Squidward is always badgered by them both. Squidward also dislikes his job at the Krusty Krab with SpongeBob. The only things that keep Squidward going are his tiki-shaped home and playing his clarinet. Sandy Cheeks - Sandy is a cowgirl from Texas. She is quite powerful and agile, so make sure you don't set her off! She is a very nice person though, and isn't all muscle. In fact, her love of science is what allows her to live underwater. She lives in a tree growing inside a large dome that keeps air in. If she leaves her air bubble, she'll wear a suit that lets her breathe. Mr. Eugene H. Krabs - Mr. Krabs is the owner of the Krusty Krab and is notable for his large cheapskate side. Mr. Krabs is completely in love with his money and lets nothing stand between him and it. He also has a daughter, Pearl the whale, though it is never explained how Pearl is a whale and Mr. Krabs is a crab. Gary the Snail - Gary is SpongeBob's pet snail and is the equivalent of an underwater cat. Although most of his sounds are cat-like mews, SpongeBob can understand exactly what Gary is saying, and Gary understands SpongeBob as well, probably better than SpongeBob understands himself. Sheldon J. Plankton - Plankton is Mr. Krab's arch rival and the not-so-proud owner of the Chum Bucket, the restaurant across the street from the Krusty Krab. Plankton has tried to steal the Krabby Patty secret formula from his rival Mr. Krabs on numerous occasions but has never succeeded. His wife Karen is a computer he built himself. Larry the Lobster - Larry is a macho lifeguard at the Bikini Bottom beach, Goo-Lagoon. He is constantly working out and is often the voice of reason when Spongebob tries something particularly dim-witted at the beach. Mrs. Poppy Puff - Mrs. Puff is the local driving school teacher in Bikini Bottom. She is a good teacher, but just cannot pass one student: SpongeBob SquarePants. SpongeBob has failed her class many times and has gotten on Mrs. Puff's nerves so much that she now has a severe hatred for him and has actually been driven slightly insane by him. Squilliam Fancyson - Squilliam is Squidward's rich and snobbish rival. He boasts about his money and is everything Squidward wants to be. He and Squidward's neighbors are the main reasons for Squidward's bitterness. Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy - These two are a retired duo of superheroes that have their own television show. Mermaid Man is portrayed as a senile character, and Barnacle Boy, who is 68 years old, is constantly annoyed by him. Man Ray and the Dirty Bubble - These are a pair of dastardly villains in Bikini Bottom. Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy are too old to fight them alone and usually need the help of SpongeBob and his friends to get the job done. The Dirty Bubble is literally a bubble and can be popped by pointy objects. Man Ray wears a mask and has no real face behind it. He has been known to have a bit of a soft side. The Flying Dutchman - The Flying Dutchman lives in his flying pirate ship and haunts Bikini Bottom. His hobby and main reason for existing is simply to scare the citizens of Bikini Bottom. Theme Song Captain: Are ya ready kids? Kids: Aye, aye, captain! Captain: I can't hear you! Kids: AYE, AYE, CAPTAIN! Captain: Ohhh..... who lives in a pineapple under the sea? Kids: SpongeBob SquarePants! Captain: Absorbent and yellow and porous is he! Kids: SpongeBob SquarePants! Captain: If nautical nonsense be something you wish,Kids: SpongeBob SquarePants!

    CBS
    The Young and the Restless revolves around the rivalries, romances, hopes and fears of the residents of the fictional Midwestern metropolis, Genoa City. The lives and loves of a wide variety of characters mingle through the generations, dominated by the Newman, Abbott and Winters families. When the show premiered in 1973, it revolutionized the daytime drama. It continues to set the standard with strong characters, socially conscious storylines, romance and sensuality. The Young and the Restless premiered on March 26, 1973, and was originally a 30 minute show. It was not until January 1980 that the show had become a one hour show like it is today. The show has ran for years at 12:30 PM on the east coast, and at 11:00 AM on the west coast. Over the years, many things have happened, and there have been many twisted story lines, many stolen husbands, and many people dead. It has also featured character cross-overs with another CBS soap, The Bold and the Beautiful. These include the psychotic Sheila Carter, who began on The Young and the Restless and shown her more psychotic side on The Bold and the Beautiful. The same goes for Lauren Fenmore, who also can be seen on The Bold and the Beautiful occasionally. The Young and the Restless is not like other soaps which convey a surreal way of life. This show, however, is based on the lives of people in a small town called Genoa City, Wisconsin, where the money is plentiful and so are the women. Many times, we wish that we could live in that small, mid-western town, just to see how life would really be like. Sometimes, we put our own problems aside and worry about what will happen next on the show. However, we're very fortunate not to have a world like they do on any soap! The theme song was written by Barry DeVorzon and Perry Botkin, and originally entitled Cotton's Theme from the film Bless the Beasts, but later became known as Nadia's Theme.moreless

His mother wants him to learn some good old-fashioned values from his successful relatives. But Will shatters the sophisticated serenity of Bel-Air with his streetwise common sense, much to the dismay of his upper-crust uncle, Philip Banks (James Avery), Aunt Vivian (Janet Hubert-Whitten and Daphne Maxwell Reid) and three conceited cousins, Carlton (Alfonso Ribeiro), Hilary (Karyn Parsons) and Ashley (Tatyana Ali) - and even the butler, Geoffrey (Joseph Marcell). As the Banks family opens their home - and their checkbook - to their needy relative, Will adapts easily to their indulgent lifestyle. Yet, he reminds everyone that the simplest pleasures of family life can't be bought at any price.

By invitation of the provisional Bajoran government, Starfleet stepped in to oversee the rebuilding and day-to-day operations of the newly christened Deep Space Nine. Starfleet's position was a tentative one, many Bajorans suspicious and unwelcoming as a result of Cardassian oppression and brutality. However the alliance held and soon DS9 was a center of travel and commerce thanks to a newly found stable wormhole, leading to the largely unexplored Gamma Quadrant. Then after two years, the Dominion - a hierarchy of three separate species, the xenophobic Changelings, the diplomatic but shifty Vorta and genetically-bred soldiers, the Jem'Hadar - made their presence known. Seeing these new travelers coming through the wormhole as a threat to their power base, they decided to bring their version of order to the Alpha Quadrant... by conquering it. So began the war. At first fought covertly, then in plain sight, the war would soon drag each of their major powers in as their governments struggled against paranoia and shifting loyalties, thanks to Changeling infiltrators.

    Former police detective Adrian Monk (Tony Shalhoub), whose photographic memory and amazing ability to piece together tiny clues made him a local legend, has suffered from intensified obsessive-compulsive disorder and a variety of phobias since the unsolved murder of his wife, Trudy, in 1997. Now on psychiatric leave from the San Francisco Police Department and working as a freelance detective/consultant on difficult cases, Monk hopes to convince his former boss, Captain Leland Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine), to allow him to return to the force. Stottlemeyer, who wavered between admiration for Monk and annoyance at his eccentricities during the first season, becomes more of a friend to Monk as the series develops, frequently calling him in to help, as much for Monk's benefit as for his own. However, he knows Monk's limitations as well as his strengths and still harbor doubts about the wisdom of allowing Monk to carry a gun or subdue a perpetrator. Stottlemeyer's second-in-command, Lieutenant Randall Disher (Jason Gray-Stanford), also develops both admiration and compassion for the man he once labeled "the defective detective." Despite flaws and inadequacies all around, the three become an increasingly effective team, with additional help from Monk's personal assistant. From the double-episode pilot through the first half of season three, Monk was aided by his nurse, Sharona Fleming (Bitty Schram). But in the tenth episode of the third season, Sharona was replaced by a new assistant, Natalie Teeger (Traylor Howard). Like Sharona, a divorcee with a son named Benjy, Natalie is a single parent, a widow with a daughter named Julie (Emmy Clarke). Unlike Sharona, Natalie is not a nurse but a former bartender with a fresh perspective on "Mr. Monk," as she still addresses her new boss.moreless
