For the record, I'm not Canadian myself, but I've known about Teletoon for the longest time, and saw it as the Canadian equivalent to Cartoon Network.
But unlike Cartoon Network, I don't see anyone talk about that often, unless someone is talking about how they grew up with it.
What doesn't help is how a lot of their output in recent years have been fairly mediocre or straight up terrible, and as of this decade, they don't even have any new original programming, just imported shows. And it just feels like it's on life support at this point.
So does anyone actually watch it anymore, or has everyone already moved on?

I don't watch regular TV anymore and I think a lot of Canadians are same. The schedule on the website looks dull, it's mostly American imports, some old shows like Batman and Justice League, a ton of repeats of Teen Titans Go and Total Dramarama.

All the kind of weird stuff they used to show in the 90s and 2000s are gone. It seems like a relic in the streaming age, heck I think the CRTC has mostly given up too.

If only I'd moved to Canada in case Trump would win, I'd be a happy man enjoying some Teletoon. "Ned's Newt", "Wayside" and "Blazing Dragons" are my faves.

Pixar's Ratatouille is 15 years old today.

It looks like Paget Brewster didn't know that DuckTales would end at season 3 given the surprise she felt when she was told about this at the last recording.

A moment of silence for TCM, that got kicked out from the avatar. Joking aside, the avatar rocks nice the corporate WBD colours.
