Splatalot! was a Canadian-British-Australian co-produced medieval-themed physical game show for kids, which premiered in Canada on YTV on March 14, 2011, hosted by Jason Agnew and Matt Chin. The UK and Australian broadcasts of the show used the same filmed footage as the original Canadian show, but with their own local presenters providing commentary. It premiered in the United Kingdom on CBBC on June 13, 2011 with Dick and Dom as hosts and in Australia on ABC3 on November 5, 2011 with Kayne Tremills and Scott Tweedie as hosts. The series was a copy of Wipeout, designed for children's audiences.

Splatalot! was produced by Marblemedia, commissioned as an international co-production by YTV, CBBC and ABC3. It featured a large, extreme obstacle course and three rounds of competition: Cross the Moat, Ditch the Dungeon (Escape the Stockade in the first series), and Capture the Crown. Each episode featured a different group of 12 teenage contestants (known as Attackers) competing against not only the obstacles and the clock, but also the Defenders. The Defenders are an international squad of nine medieval themed gladiators, who are tasked with protecting the castle from the Attackers. The winning Attacker is crowned King or Queen of Splatalot!.[1]

Production[edit]

The series was produced using a 2.5 acre set built on a 50 acre lot (previously used to shoot The Adrenaline Project) owned by Marblemedia in Amaranth, Ontario, Canada and featured contestants from Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia.[2] The company had spent a year collaborating with theme park engineers to design the course.[3]

The first season, consisting of 26 episodes, was shot on location in September and October 2010.[4] On February 3, 2012 the series was renewed for a 26 episode second season.[5] It was shot the following summer.[6]

Following the recording of the series, the set remained abandoned and was a popular attraction for trespassers.[7] The set was later demolished in 2018 as part of a series called "Smashalot!".[8] At the beginning of the first episode, reasons are listed for the demolition, including YouTubers, being too costly to repair, having unpaid property taxes and opposition from the local community.[9]

The Attackers[edit]

Contestants, known as "Attackers" were drawn from schools and sports clubs from across Canada, United Kingdom and Australia. They consist of children aged 12 and up. A different group of attackers feature in every episode.

The Defenders[edit]

Splatalot! featured a recurring cast of Defenders, consisting of six charismatic young adults. Each episode featured 3 Defenders per round, (but all six on the Final) ensuring that the audiences never sees the same lineup twice. Each Defender has their own unique persona, colour, costume and signature weapon - they work together to incite laughter and most importantly, impede the Attackers until one of them proves that he or she is worthy of the crown of Splatalot!.

In season 2, Knightriss, Shaiden, Ballista, Tinkor, Gildar and Crocness have left the show, but they returned to the screen for the show's American run on BYUtv. Only Kook, Thorne and Skabb remained from season 1, with Madeva, Faetal and Vane coming in as replacements. Gildar appears for The 'Celebrity Splatdown' only to announce his departure from the show, and was mentioned in ‘Teachers Vs Students Splatdown’ and 'Sleepy Matty (Dicky in the UK, Scotty in Australia)'.

The Defenders are (In both seasons):

  • Thorne (played by Elliott Francis) – A British Warrior. The self-proclaimed bad boy of the group. The Defender who is in a permanent bad mood, brooding and grumbling wherever he roams. With his maniacal mohawk and his blue streaked face, Thorne rarely finds joy in anything, but stopping attackers from claiming the crown. His weapon of choice is a spiked mace. When he is in stage 1 he likes to use the fog gun (vaporizer). He is also a 'gentleman' as he says in "We are not alone" where he helps one of the girls (Andrea) up the wall. He is the brother of Season 1 defender Shaiden.
  • Kookaburra (played by James Elmer) – A wacky Australian guy and the team's joker in the pack who has a bird-like design, often nicknamed 'Kook'. His Weapon of choice is a slingshot, and he is probably the most successful defender on the whole show, though he can act awkward and silly at times; for example, he uses cheerleading chants in the "Parents & Kids Splatdown." He is revealed to have a crush on Shaiden, was once called a green-haired freak, and is known to trick the attackers; for example, pretending the cannon is not working in Round 3, with the defender wanting to seize the "chance". However, when they go, he is revealed to be faking; he presses the button and makes the attacker fall off.
  • Skabb (played by Wendo Mhogolo) – An extremely violent, Australian barbarian whose real name is revealed to be Alan "Skabb" Tonelli. He's the most dangerous and aggressive of the defenders and is known for being the castle bully. Although he is brutal in his defending, he is known to occasionally have a soft side, which is revealed in a number of episodes. His weapon of choice is a club but he is dangerous with every weapon. He also tends to scare the Attackers and the Defenders without fail.

In Season 1[edit]

  • Gildar (played by RJ City) – A narcissistic Canadian Viking who cared only about himself and constantly looked in his mirror, bragging about his muscles, facial features, and his hair. His weapon of choice is a sledgehammer, and with it, he is able to rid the castle of his biggest hatred: sass from the attackers. In "Party Like It's $19.99," he was in a DVD of "Extreme Viking Makeover," and he published a book called Shoved by a Rainbow in "Shoved by a Rainbow." It is revealed in "Gildar Has a Secret," that he and Crocness were married.
  • Ballista (played by Samantha Brown) – A manipulative Canadian huntress who suppresses attackers with her physical beauty and deceiving charm. Her weapons of choice are a shield and sword. Matt and Jason, from the Canadian version of Splatalot, are both depicted to have a crush on her. In "And the Splatty Goes To," she won the Splatty Award for Most Valuable Defender. She is often depicted as one who feels that the male defenders act like showoffs whenever she does something.
  • Tinkor (played by Matt Burns) – A Canadian blacksmith who not only has built all of the Defenders' weapons, but his foul stench and appearance repulses everyone in the castle- attackers and defenders alike. His weapon of choice is a catapult, but sometimes he uses a handheld splatzooka. In "Beaver Tails," the attacker Sofia confuses Tinkor for his father Terry, who look exactly the same to each other. As shown in "Impossible is Nothing" and "Sarthak the Situation," he and Shaiden have a somewhat on-again off-again relationship. His best friends are typically Kook and Skabb. He is capable of ticking Gildar off when the weapons do not work.
  • Shaiden (played by Grace Francis) – A British ninja and Thorne's sister who is known for her sneakiness and her temper when another Defender, mainly Skabb, calls her a "little girl;" is constantly annoyed by the other Defenders, as she feels she is the only one actually focused on the Attackers. Her weapon of choice is a katana. She seems to have an on-again off-again relationship with Tinkor, and tries to tempt Kook in making a fool of himself. During the ending in "It's Taco Day," she uses meditation to calm Skabb down after he loses his cool when Erik captured the Crown of Splatalot.
  • Knightriss (played by Gloria Onitri) – A British knight and Madeva's older sister, who competes with Gildar as the leader of the defenders. Her weapon of choice is a jousting lance. In "Talk to the Barrel," she and Thorne are depicted to have a relationship, as they are seen flirting over their defense styles against the attackers. In "Revenge of the Nerds," she and Thorne are arguing over who should fire the splatzooka. In "Alan Skabb Tonelli," she begins flirting with Skabb bringing on yet another relationship for this indecisive knight.
  • Crocness (played by Chenoa Deemal) – A cunning Australian swamptress who wears a crocodile around her neck and is known for her moss-covered hair. Her weapons of choice is a skull staff. Like Shaiden, she shows that she is on edge who will focus on the attackers more than each other. In "It's Taco Day," she fills in for Gildar in the final round after he leaves the castle for a record label. In "The Cookies Crumble," Matt gives Jason a box of cookies that Crocness made and they made Jason sick.

In Season 2[edit]

  • Madeva (played by Alexia Khadime) – A crazy female Dragonslayer. The new leader of the defenders. Her weapon of choice is a giant claymore. She is Knightriss' sister.
  • Vane (played by Eric Johnston) – A lazy, greedy and talented yet vain archer who would rather eat a sandwich than defend the castle. Weapon of choice is a crossbow-styled cannon. He wears sunglasses with his name on them.
  • Faetal (played by Nicole Power) – A charming Amazon who feels all attackers are her favorite. Her Weapons of choice is a dagger and shield. She is revealed to be Gildar's cousin in "Two Drawbridges Up."

Rounds in Splatalot[edit]

Round 1: Cross the Moat[edit]

Round One sees the Attackers challenged with overcoming a series of large obstacles consisting of barrels, the battle axes, the bridge of disaster, and the defenders. Looking at time in this round as the fastest six attackers move on to the next round.

Round 2: Ditch the Dungeon (Escape the Stockade in the first season)[edit]

Contestants must go up a long staircase but, the defenders make the stairs really slippery by using the trademark slime balls, a foam gun and the Vile Volley. Also, the Defender at the top of the stairs uses the Purple Plague (a cart full of purple balls) and the Balls of Doom. The fastest four Attackers to overcome the obstacles, ditches the dungeon and capture the four flags advance to Round 3.

Round 3: Capture the Crown[edit]

In Round 3, the remaining four Attackers must race across the obstacle-ridden courtyard, up to the tower where the crown lies in wait. In their path are all 6 Defenders from both rounds taking up various positions around the courtyard, wielding various weapons and devices to impede the Attackers' progress. In the end, only one Attacker will make it past the Defenders and capture the crown, winning this week's episode, and says the catchphrase, "I'm the king/queen of the castle" in Season 1.

In Season 2, the winning attacker says, "My/Our first act as king/queen/ruler of Splatalot is have one of you thrown into the moat/swamp. I/we wish I/we could do it to all of you, but today/tonight, it will be you, (insert Defender)!

International broadcast[edit]

The Canadian version premiered on Nickelodeon in the United States on July 17, 2012.[43] The British version aired on Disney XD channels in the EMEA regions.[44] Dutch broadcaster Z@PP filmed their own host segments with local talent Ron Boszhard and Viviënne van den Assem in 2012.[45] Splatalot! has been seen in over 100 countries worldwide.[46]

On March 13, 2018, BYUtv announced that they had acquired the rights to air the series in the United States. On April 2, the channel began running the first season of the show with new hosted segments starring Stacey Harkey and Tori Pence.[47] On October 8, the channel began airing the second season, again with Harkey and Pence hosting.[48]

Reruns can be seen on the Canadian Game channel GameTv, starting in the fall of 2019.

Smashalot![edit]

Following the conclusion of the second season's production in 2012, the show's unattended set in Amaranth, Ontario attracted the attention of trespassers. A YouTube video by user Bright Sun Films exploring the location garnered over 600,000 viewers before being pulled a year later at the request of Marblemedia.[49][50] The set hadn't been dismantled as the producers continued to pursue a revival of the show. Due to safety concerns, the township's mayor had requested the presence of around the clock security.[51]

In late 2017, Marblemedia confirmed it was developing a family-oriented revival set to begin shooting in the summer of 2018.[52] However, those plans were abandoned and the set was later demolished in January 2019. Marblemedia turned the demolition into a YouTube spin-off series called Smashalot!.[53][54] Featuring former contestants and YouTube personalities (including Bright Sun Films) destroying a segment of the castle in each episode, the show is hosted by Jason Agnew and Gildar.[55]
