Braceface is an animated television series that aired on Teletoon in Canada from June 2, 2001[1] to September 1, 2004.[2] The series was executive produced by American actress Alicia Silverstone, and produced by the Canadian company Nelvana.


The show, set in Elkford, British Columbia, recounts the travails of Sharon Spitz, who is a junior high school student with braces that get in the way of leading a normal teenage life. Her braces are somehow electrically charged at all times, giving her strange abilities such as remotely operating machinery, tapping into wireless communication channels, and even discharging electricity directly into what's in front of her, though much of these abilities are often outside her control. In the first season, she is enrolled at Mary Pickford Junior High but later the show progresses into Sharon going into high school.
