Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Reality TV meets animation in this Cartoon Network Survivor parody about 22 teenagers who are dumped together at a rundown summer camp in Ontario for eight full weeks (and 27 full episodes) of crazy physical challenges, psychological games, lousy food, and plenty of drama. Object of the game: avoid taking a walk on the dock of shame to the boat of losers and be the one remaining teen who will receive a $100,000 cash prize. Extreme personalities are the norm at Camp Wawanakwa and range from Goth to jock, empty-headed beauty, juvenile delinquent, inseparable best friends, nice guy, and nerd. Survivor fans will notice some overtly obvious parallels between Total Drama Island characters and past Survivor participants. Peaceful co-habitation would be a challenge in the best of circumstances, but when the contestants are pushed to their absolute limits in challenges like cliff-diving into shark infested waters, killer dodge ball, a Fear Factor type challenge, and trapping wild animals, tempers flare and drama reigns. Add in host Chris, who's got a serious issue with the enjoyment of torturing others, and crazy Chef Hatchet, who does so much more than just cook lousy meals, and be assured that absolutely anything could happen. Kids 7-10 years will be completely entertained by the show's focus on extreme challenges and the abundance of bodily function humor that includes everything from burping the alphabet to excessive flatulence, projectile vomiting, and diarrhea. Despite finding the show's events ridiculous and even stupid, older kids find themselves inexplicably hooked on the humor, comedy, and adventure while adults will marvel at how well the show's writers have captured the character extremes that are apt to emerge in current reality television programming. Total Drama Island features superficial characters, bodily humor, and adventure in the extreme and can be counted upon to simultaneously entertain and disgust. --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

Twenty-two teens have just been sent to the oldest, mouldiest, most beat up, run-down, bug infested summer camp in Northern Ontario where they'll be forced to endure a summer of leaky cabins, crappy food and increasingly insane challenges. Only one can win - the rest will walk the dreaded Dock of Shame. Tensions will run high, the hook-ups are SO on, and the cameras will be there to catch it all.

This animated series is the funniest thing on TV!

Interesting characters, intriguing plot, fun art style.

A great gift for anybody from a kid to a college student!

Why Cartoon Network is wasting airtime on shoddy live-action shows when great animation like this can be had from Canada (oh bless you, Great White North!) baffles me.
Totally baffles me. :D

From the same people who brought you 6teen.
The Hipster gives it a Big Thumbs UP!

Ok so I am a cartoon geek, so I may like this stuff too much. But I also grew up in the 90s (I'm 21 now), the age of such classics as Tiny Toons, Batman, Rocko, Ren and stimpy, Dexter's Lab, etc. Don't forget Looney Tunes repeats.

These were shows that genuinely worked for kids and older audiences, which in the realm of animation is very rare. So while I may be a little biased towards 90s stuff, I haven't found a show that was quite up to snuff in this past decade. The rare exception is Total Drama Island.

Initially skeptical (the producers' forerunning show 6teen was HOPELESSLY generic), I warmed up to it via Cartoon Network repeats and found it surprisingly accessible and entertaining. It basically follows the exploits of various teens competing for cash money while stuck for a god forsaken summer camp in rural Northern Ontario. The basic setup lampoons Survivor with a little bit of Fear Factor mixed in there. The reality show spoofery is used to great effect. With general genre satire, cartoon slapstick, wacky yet charming character anctics and a little bit of rude humor, the writing provides a good variety of gags and jokes.

Then there are the (purposely) sterotypical characters Jock, Hipster, 'Sista", Valley Girl (or the Canadian variant) Dork, Goth and Delinquent, just to name a few. There were even some outside of those parameters, (such as off kilter wilderness girl Izzy). Some fare better than others, but their characters are used well and all provoke at least one chuckle from the audience. There is even some development in character relationships, again some better than others. Some genuinely suprising, all of which contributed to the genuine suspense of seeing who gets voted off the Island.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like tire brakes, would be left better uncut. August 25, 2009
Format:DVD
What we have here is a classic example of censorship gone wrong. The damage is minimal, but still noticeable. CN does a good job with certain dubbed words but sometimes jokes fall flat if tampered with. Don't get me wrong this is still a excellent show. Original, funny, and delivered very well. The DVD box set is nice for a great price. But at this price we would expect it to be uncut and left alone with it's original dialogue. This is the only problem I had with the DVD. If it weren't for that, then this would be a 5 out of 5 dvd. Cartoon Network should realize nobody likes dubs, especially bad dubs.

I got hooked to this cartoon reality show when it first aired in the U.S. on Cartoon Network its uncensored form. I was really hoping the DVD set would leave in the original dialogue, such as "Aww crap," and the comical bleeps. I was also really hoping to see the TDI special which explains how the second season came to be. Oh well. 3 stars for the edits and exclusion of the special episode, but 5 stars for the cartoon show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for adults to watch as well May 3, 2009
Format:DVD
I'm 27 and found the series pretty funny. I can't wait for Total Action Island or whatever they named season two. I found it much easier to watch then those other surviver island tv reality shows.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cartoon Network's Best Investment Since DBZ June 2, 2009
By Q. Pair
Format:DVD
Excluding Adult Swim, Total Drama Island is hands down the best program out on Cartoon Network. The fact that its one big parody of every reality show ever is kind of ironic, because its far easier to watch then any of the shows that inspired it. Its hilarious, and truly pushes the envelope for the American standard of whats "acceptable" for kids to watch on TV. I've watched re-runs of this show for months and its still the funniest thing I've watched on CN in a long time. Awesome show, you need to get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Development in Animation! March 4, 2012
Format:DVD
Let me state two things before I begin:

1. I'm 22 years old and virtually all of the animated shows that I watch are aimed at older audiences; things like South Park, Archer, and many Adult Swim shows. My choices in animation are either these or animated television shows from the 90's; things like The Simpsons, The Critic, and Batman: The Animated Series.

2. I HATE reality television!! I feel that it is a blight upon television which not only offends me with its sheer lack of redeeming features but also for slightly lowering what some people accept as good entertainment.

So, what does it say when a spoof of reality television aimed at young teenagers is one of the only cartoons released over the past 10 years that I thought was truly amazing!? How can this be? Let me explain myself.

Well, in acute irony, this show about 22 animated teenagers competing in a "Survivor" type show (with a delightfully cruel "Survivor" type host) for $100,000 has everything which real reality television sorely lacks. Said "everything" being: good writing, good voice acting, good characters, and actual honest-to-God character development! I will spend most of the remaining review by focusing on the character development because there is much more to say that's worth saying.

Firstly, as others have already stated, the characters competing are stereotypes of both of teenagers and the contestants on reality television. Others before me have already gone into the names and "types" of these characters so I will not. Despite being somewhat stock characters and often just walking punch lines in the early episodes, something slowly but surely starts happening. The at first glance generic becomes more fleshed out, more realistic, more developed.

Censor Butchering
Yes it does, as the original Canadian version had several jokes and lines edited or cut completely due to CN's editing. I for one will not buy this set if it only the Cartoon Network version of TDI.
