Underrated spin off

This spin off is a more tame version than the original show, the only things that are inappropriate is the rectal joke in Venthalla, and the gross out scenes in Cuttin Corners, especially Germ Factory where all the kids except Courtney try to get sick by licking doorknobs and the counters in the bathroom

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (18 ):
Kids say (45 ):

If this series is any indication, toddler drama can be every bit as entertaining as young adult drama, provided that the personality mix is right. A contributing factor to Total Drama's appeal was its eclectic character pool, so it stands to reason that the same would be true of these miniature versions of those same cast members. Even without foreknowledge of how these characters relate to each other (and don't), it's not hard to get sucked into their group drama. And while this series isn't set up as a reality show like the others were, there are occasional character confessionals that amuse.

What poses potential trouble for Total DramaRama isn't its content or target audience of grade schoolers but the crossover between this show and the ones that preceded it, which are geared toward older viewers. Total Drama fans who tune in for DramaRama will appreciate the humor in seeing these familiar characters' big personalities in little bodies, but if this is your kids' introduction to the Drama crew, know that the other series aren't as innocuous as this one.
