    24 Canadian Shows From Your Childhood That You Definitely Forgot About (Until Right Now)

    Angela Anaconda should have her own Heritage Minute.

    1. ReBoot (1994- 2001)

    The faces were blue and the CGI was um... new. ReBoot gave me the literal CHILLS as a child, but it was ahead of its time. A show about Guardians protecting the internet, ReBoot screamed, "The new millennium is HERE EVERYONE!"

    2. For Better Or For Worse (2000-2001)

    I completely forgot about this show until I heard the theme song and it zooted me back to childhood. It's so wholesome I think i might cry. *Checks my period app*

    3. Braceface (2001-2004)

    I had no idea the cast of Braceface was so star-studded. With characters voiced by Alicia Silverstone, Michael Cera and Emily Hampshire, I'm going to have to stop writing this and do a rewatch instead. BRB! 

    4. Freaky Stories (1997-2000)

    I'm back— and ready to ask about one of the greatest mysteries in the history of the entire universe: how did they get the worm puppet on Freaky Stories to look so slimy?! Shiiiiiiivers. 

    5. Mona the Vampire (1999-2003)

    If no one else will say it, I bravely will: Edward Cullen could never. 

    6. Ed, Edd n Eddy (1999-2008)

    Tag yourself: are you an Ed, Edd or Eddy? (I feel in my heart I am an Eddy). 

    7. What's With Andy? (2001-2007)

    Okay so like, I'm realizing I definitely had a crush on Andy. The hair! The pranks! The... rapping in the intro? I'm blushing. 

    8. Angela Anaconda (1999-2001)

    Angela Anaconda is the best thing to come out of Canada since Alexander Graham Bell popped out the telephone. Angela is an icon, she's a legend, and she is the moment. 

    9. Maggie and the Ferocious Beast (2000-2002)

    If you have little ones now (eek, we're old), you're in luck. Looks like this show is getting a reboot in 2022. Maggie lives!

    10. Uh Oh! (1997-2003)

    Do you understand that back in the day, I would have sacrificed my baby sister to be slimed by The Punisher? If anyone still has their old Uh Oh! tee, please get in touch.

    11. Monster by Mistake (1996-2003)

    This CGI is giving Sims 1. It's giving Playmobil. It's giving digital claymation. I physically can't with this.

    12. 15/Love (2004-2006)

    Tennis and teen drama. "What more could we ask for in a television series?" — I yell into the abyss.

    13. What About Mimi? (2000-2002)

    Could not mention one single plot point of Miss Mimi's little show, but I can bet this theme song has been stuck in your head since 2002. 

    14. Naturally, Sadie (2005-2007)

    I never really watched Naturally, Sadie because I thought it was a show for horse girls. No offense! (But like, you totally get what I mean right?)

    15. Girlstuff/Boystuff (2002-2003)

    Girlstuff/Boystuff has a colour palette like I've never seen before. Graphic designers all over the world are shielding their eyes. But that was the early 2000s for you baby! 

    16. Stickin' Around (1996-1998)

    REAL MATURE BRADLEY!

    17. My Dad the Rock Star (2003-2004)

    Gene Simmons: Bassist, reality TV star and... kid show creator? Executive Producer of My Dad the Rock Star, Gene Simmons is a true multi-hyphenate. Rock on.

    18. Radio Active (1998-2001)

    Radio Active wasn't the only CanCon about a group of outliers managing a high school radio station. Which leads us to... 

    19. Radio Free Roscoe (2003-2005)

    Forgot about Maggie and the Ferocious Beast. We, as a community, must stand together to demand a reboot of the iconic Radio Free Roscoe. What are the chances Drake would make a cameo again? 

    20. Totally Spies! (2001-2013)

    Here's the thing: even thoughThe Powerpuff Girls reigns culturally supreme in the "3 Girls With Different Hair Colours Fighting Crime" zeitgeist, real ones know that Totally Spies!  is the superior show by far. 

    21. Big Comfy Couch (1992-2006)

    Just tried to do the clock stretch. Broke a hip. Next. 

    22. Yvon of the Yukon (2001-2004)

    They just don't make shows about cryogenically frozen French explorers anymore. Sigh.

    23. Life With Derek (2005-2009)

    I'm not going to lie to you dear reader, I was obsessed with the freaky-deaky-step-siblings-with-chemistry narrative on this show. Life With Derek is definitely the most, um, interesting thing Mr. Walt Disney has ever put his stamp on. 

    24. 6teen (2004-2010)

    Alright, alright so we definitely all remember 6teen. But I just couldn't help it. And they were soooo right—  when you're growing up so fast, you need to make the good times last. Time to head to the mall!
