How do we determine what order to list series that aired during the same time period in? Wouldn't it make sense to split up the years and do it alphabetically? AweCo (talk) 04:49, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

By year, yes. Alphabetically isn't completely common sense. Bread Ninja (talk) 13:33, 25 July 2011 (UTC)
Maybe by month when it's same-year? Should we list notes on that here for ease rather than having to check each article each time? Bonechamber (talk) 15:56, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Total Drama[edit]

This is listed as 2007. I am wondering, should we list the individual series for TD instead to add more to this template, since they have their own pages? Like 2007 = Island, 2009 = Action, 2010 = World Tour, 2011 = Revenge of the Island? I wouldn't have suggested this before since there was a shortage of space, but with how BN has spaced out and improved this template there would be room in these years for the individually titled TD season listings. Any thoughts? 10/11 in particular look like lonely years and this would give them company and make the recent years more valuable to list on their own. Bonechamber (talk) 15:56, 31 August 2011 (UTC)

Those 4 are seasons, this template only lists main series, which for Total Drama it started in 2007. Giggett (talk) 17:15, 9 September 2011 (UTC)


We added the year the series were premiered, but I think we should also add the year they ended. Giggett (talk) 17:16, 9 September 2011 (UTC)

unnecesarry...this is just a navbox. Plus premiere is more important than when it ended if they ended. It'll make the navbox too hard to read.Bread Ninja (talk) 04:22, 10 September 2011 (UTC)


The English dub premiered on Teletoon, and the show itself is a co-pro by Teletoon's sister company in Nelvana. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:02, 14 March 2012 (UTC)

Questionable changes[edit]

User:, I've reverted your edit for a number of reasons. First of all, Treehouse TV actually produced new episodes of the shows mentioned; it did not simply air reruns as you claim. Second, Teletoon Retro/Télétoon Rétro deserve to be mentioned in this sense regardless of rerun status, as these were clearly spinoff channels from the main ones. Third, you added a show and a claim about another one without sourcing this anywhere; please let me know if you add citations to the corresponding articles for this (but note that one of the shows doesn't even have an article for it yet – and I'm not sure your capitalization of its title is correct, by the way). Fourth, you entirely failed to explain your removal of links to Teletoon at Night/Télétoon la nuit, the inclusion of which is obviously justified. Fifth, you added quite a bit of wordiness to the template separately from the previously-mentioned changes, once again without justification. Mdrnpndr (talk) 18:28, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

Here are my reason why i did these changes: First, some of these shows according to their articles are actually questionable to if they actually new episodes or reruns. Second, Even if they are spinoff, it not worth mentioning here, other Corus channels rerun Teletoon originals and Teletoon itself rerun some of their originals; Cartoon Network (Canada) is also a spinoff channel but it is not mentioned, beside, Johnny Test and Totally Spies should have also been in this category since they had reran on Télétoon Rétro. Third, here the source for the show, which is in French by the way:http://www.corusent.com/home/Corporate/PressReleases/tabid/1697/Default.aspx?Id=3061 , also it is been revealed that it was going to be run on Adult Swim (Canada) by a bump as said title and and as yet to be post online. Fourth, Teletoon at Night/Télétoon la nuit also had predecessors for this category and Adult Swim (Canada) also has to be mentioned since they going to include series from this category and not just reruns. In another note, it best to say "Not shown on [channel]" than [Channel] only" because they weren't exclusive to said channel. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:18, 13 September 2015 (UTC)
Okay, so your source for the new show is fine, but I would prefer we wait until the English-language version comes out in October and/or an article on the show is started, whichever comes first. This is because we cannot be sure of the correct capitalization of the English-language title from a single press release, and I'm fed up with moving pages back and forth based on the capitalization of a single letter. (Of course, adding the French-language title is out of the question since it wouldn't link to any feasible title here on the English-language Wikipedia.)
The Adult Swim (Canada) stuff continues to be largely unsourced. You may have noticed that I tagged the related citations at Fugget About It as having failed verification. This is because an announcement of the show simply airing (its existing episodes) on the block, even combined with a new season screening panel, is not even confirmation that the show will air the new season on the block, let alone that the new season was produced in association with the channel. What I need from you is confirmation of the Adult Swim logo appearing in the show's credits. (Same goes for "Night Sweats" and any other such shows.)
Cartoon Network (Canada) isn't really a spinoff channel of these any more than Disney Channel (Canada) is. I mean, CN was originally licensed as "Teletoon Kapow", but DC was licensed as "Teletoon Retro", so... The Retro channels, on the other hand, must be mentioned somewhere in this template because there is no question that they were direct spinoffs. Do you have a source regarding your claim about Johnny Test and Totally Spies!?
For the remaining issues: The nightly blocks, just like the Retro channels, must be mentioned somewhere in this template, but I don't think it's helpful to include all of the variations of their former names, especially since those variations don't have articles of their own, unlike the current names. Let me know which shows you think are questionable in terms of their status on Treehouse. As for the wording issue, I think we'll put that aside for now.

Resources for Télétoon only series[edit]

Splatalot (as of Season 2): http://www.9story.com/News/NewsDetail?newsID=186

Knuckle Heads (Au pays des têtes à claques) and Two nuts and a Richard (Les Grandes Gueules s'animent): : http://www.corusent.com/news/corus-announces-a-robust-slate-of-new-and-returning-original-productions-for-ytv-and-teletoon-with-18-commissioned-shows/

Total Drama Presents: The Ridonculous Race might also fit in this category as it is unlikely that it will run on Teletoon according to TV guides. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:48, 23 December 2015 (UTC)


"Teletoon at Night/Télétoon la nuit series in bold" is confusing, as links to the article it's placed on will be always bolded. nyuszika7h (talk) 21:45, 3 March 2016 (UTC)

User:Nyuszika7H, I see your point, but what would you suggest as a replacement? I feel that numbering them would decrease the importance of this category to that of a mere note like the others. Mdrnpndr (talk) 00:42, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
@Mdrnpndr: I just realized that for WP:ACCESSIBILITY reasons we should have more than just visual formatting (e.g. bold) anyway. So maybe it can be bold and a number or a dagger sign or something. nyuszika7h (talk) 13:03, 11 May 2016 (UTC)

Upon reflection, I realized that I would prefer a symbol for this purpose even less, so I've decided to simply put this designation first as part of an ongoing overhaul of the entire template. Let me know what you think. Mdrnpndr (talk) 00:50, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

User:Nyuszika7H, just to inform you: I have now completed the rebuild of the template, so do let me know in case you have any comments. (Sorry about pinging your name so many times, by the way.) Mdrnpndr (talk) 01:14, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

1998 skipped for a reason![edit]

The year 1998 should not be included in the template, and any edits that attempt to add it to the template should be considered unconstructive unless other factors are involved. See Teletoon#History for more information regarding the channel during the year in question. Mdrnpndr (talk) 21:50, 13 February 2015 (UTC)

Furthermore, only shows that are either in this list or have sources at List of programs broadcast by Teletoon or Teletoon at Night explicitly confirming the involvement of the channel in their production should be included in this template. Mdrnpndr (talk) 20:21, 14 February 2015 (UTC)

Since the year 1998 has repeatedly been added back to this template by various (mostly anonymous) users, the discussion on this matter above is clearly insufficient. First of all, here is an excerpt from List of Teletoon original series (also linked from this template):

In 1998, network management decided to focus on renewals instead of new shows. This was a more cautious strategy than launching a significant number of new series as it had in the prior year.[1]

In particular, the show Flying Rhino Junior High keeps getting added to this spurious section, along with a number of other recurring additions. Yes, the series aired on Teletoon around the time of its release, but it very clearly identifies the associated production channels in the credits, among them CBS Television and Télétoon+ (the channel in France that was at the time known simply as Télétoon, and not to be confused with the French-language Canadian channel – the name similarity may have been what originated the confusion about this, but given the other persistent additions it is clearly a hoax now).

Oh. Sorry. --SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy (talk) 04:32, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

  • Someone has now added Team Galaxy to the list (along with a bunch of other unsourced changes), which is entirely inexcusable as the show has a prominent YTV (and Vrak.TV) logo in the credits. Mdrnpndr (talk) 03:21, 1 June 2016 (UTC)

Night Sweats is a Teletoon Original[edit]

Teletoon is credited in later episodes of the show — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:02, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

User:, do you know which episode(s) specifically? (If you could find an official link to at least one of these, that would be even better, but I doubt such a link exists.) Because not a single one I've seen on Teletoon at Night's video player even mentions the channel in the credits (let alone has the production logo), while Adult Swim Canada doesn't seem to have a video player at all. Mdrnpndr (talk) 12:11, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

It was during the 2016 episodes (ep 14 and later). — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:55, 22 June 2016 (UTC)

As it turns out, even episode 13 has the channel logo in the credits. I've added the show back to the template now. Mdrnpndr (talk) 01:02, 28 June 2016 (UTC)
