Toons These Days: Total Drama
Doggy D. Daschund is back, and he seems to be stranded in a raft somewhere. Instead of doing something else that will help him last longer – like biting chunks out of live sharks for sustenance, then riding the rest home – the grumpy little toon decided to rant about reality show-based cartoons instead, particularly Total Drama: Revenge of the Island.
One of the chief concerns Doggy has with the Total Drama franchise is what Doc McStuffins refers to as “Sequel-itis”, in which a franchise is spun off into sequel after sequel despite the original not actually having enough quality to warrant one.
Total Drama: Revenge of the Island is the fourth season of the Total Drama franchise, and is commissioned by Teletoon from its producers Fresh T.V. Inc. The series brings the show back to the first season’s setting, Camp Wawanakwa, with an entirely new cast of characters/contestants. The twist this time is that due to the island being unused for two seasons, it has been turned into a toxic nuclear waste dump.
