🎵 “Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na…I wanna be FAMOUS.” 🎵
Alright, people. Strap yourselves in, as a result of I am right here to take you on a nostalgic journey and remind you about probably the greatest cartoons to exist — Complete Drama Island.
That includes 22 campers in an elimination-based competitors happening in Camp Wawanakwa — a rundown island stuffed with bears, bugs and that random, however iconic seagull — the present was principally a Canadian parody of Survivor.
Oh, and let’s not overlook concerning the spin-offs, like Complete Drama Motion, Complete Drama World Tour and Complete Drama: Revenge of the Island, which paid tribute to different well-liked actuality TV exhibits.
However again to Complete Drama Island, this cartoon was comedic gold. It had that good stability of humour that not solely appealed to youngsters, however youngsters like me who caught wind of these ~grownup~ innuendos the writers sneaked in.
By far, the perfect a part of the present was the characters. Although there was a big group, every one among them was memorable in their very own manner. Like, who may ever overlook Chris McLean’s iconic intro in the beginning of every episode.
Or absolutely the bonkers character that was Chef Hatchet and his VERY muscular neck.
Look, let’s be trustworthy — the characters have been stereotypical, however that is what made all of them so relatable. All of us knew a queen bee that received on everybody’s nerves like Heather, a cool, surfer dude like Geoff, a instructor’s pet like Courtney or a sassy and outspoken queen like Leshawna.
And for the reason that characters have been already type of acquainted, it made it a lot simpler to get invested in all of the romances, alliances, back-stabbing and, most necessary of all, the eliminations.
Being a teen whereas watching this, I positively dreamed of being on both the Screaming Gophers or the Killer Bass.
And, after all I jammed out to the theme track — that shit was catchy AF.
Principally, what I am saying is that Complete Drama Island is the perfect cartoon present that everybody has forgotten about. It’s very underrated, completely slaps to at the present time and deserves all of the awards.
Though, I am nonetheless mad about how the writers did us soiled by permitting Owen to succeed in the highest two. That, I’ll by no means agree with, as a result of I used to be rooting for my sensible and proficient goth queen, Gwen, to take out the highest prize.
Anyway, if you have not already, watch Complete Drama Island.
