Chuck's Choice is a Canadian animated television series produced by DHX Media for YTV. It premiered on YTV on May 6, 2017. It follows Chuck McFarlane, a 10-year-old boy with an alien robot. When he gets himself into lot of difficult situations, his robot, UD, hacks into 'decider mode'. Time freezes and UD gives Chuck three choices. He has to choose one and it will come true, but not always in the way he expects. His best friend, Misha, knows the art of combat and is often saving Chuck from monsters and threats. Whenever Chuck chooses to teleport them somewhere, Misha always comes with him.

Plot

The series is about a fiesty 10 year old kid who claims a gift from an intergalactic reality-altering robot named U.D. to manifest one of three choices throughout his day, leading to adventures.

This is called "Decider Mode" and time appears to freeze for everyone but U.D. and "The Decider" (normally Chuck). Although they seem random, U.D. reveals the ability to influence the selection in "Flush Hour Two" when he generates three identical options to seek help from a pirate monkey to rescue Ariana, the goldfish he befriended that belongs to Chuck's best friend Misha.

Characters

Main

  • Chuck McFarlane (voiced by Sabrina Pitre) is the eponymous hero of the series.
  • UD (short for U-Decide 3000, voiced by Ryan Beil) is the choice-enabling alien robot who bends reality to suit Chuck's whims.
  • Misha[1][2] (voiced by Kira Tozer) is Chuck's best friend, and the heroine of the series. Chuck frequently nicknames her "Mish", dropping the "a" from the end and halving the syllable count. Closed captions frequently spell her name as Meesha or Meesh. She has hair tied into a ponytail which is purple and pink. She is 12.[3]

Recurring

  • Ellen[4] (voiced by Rebecca Shoichet) is Chuck and Norm's mom. She is a caterer.
    • Norm McFarlane (voiced by Peter Kelamis) is Chuck's older brother.
      • Ash (as she calls herself, or Ashley, as Norm calls her; voiced by Rebecca Shoichet) is a student. She is a girl with glasses and purple twintails who Norm is romantically interested in. She loses her retainer and is called "milady". She has a "nerdy laugh" according to captions and finds varying things interesting about Norm, such as his being a former villain (after losing ice powers in "Cool Hand Norm") or him being comfortable with his body (farting after he does).
  • Misha's Mom and Dad (voiced by Tabitha St. Germain) and Ian Hanlin) are strict about her getting good grades.
  • Joey Adonis (voiced by Vincent Tong) is a fat rich boy who antagonizes Chuck.
    • Biff Adonis is Joey's movie star dad who Chuck admires.
      • Alfie is Joey's butler who bathes him. He considers Chuck practically a bestie.
  • Pepper is a girl with orange hair and glasses. Misha chooses her for a lab partner in "Smarten Up Chuck" and in another episode she has the same hairstyle as Misha on picture day. In "Ultimate Chuck" she and Joey are picking volleyball teams and fight over Chuck until he hugs them, joining both.
  • "some random teenager" as Chuck refers to her in "Cool Hand Norm", is a blonde girl with hair covering one of her eyes. She is among a group who flees Norm's flirtations and asks with disapproval if Chuck knows him. At the end of "Abraham Stinking" she is depicted on a date with Norm and likes his skunk breath.
  • Ms. Cho (voiced by Shannon Chan-Kent) is Chuck's teacher.
  • Dr. Crown is a dreaded dentist.
  • Coach Dwayne (voiced by Michael Daingerfield) is the balding gym teacher with a mustache and glasses.
  • Chilly Parchuway
  • Stella
  • Bella
