Feeling old yet?
The Weekenders graced our TV screens for the first time 17 years ago. A lot of things have changed since then (and rightly so), but the series is still, in many ways, alive. This blog was created to become a community for fans, a place that would allow everyone to explain how The Weekenders has had an impact on their lives. Stories range from kids raised by a single parent, just like Tino, to adults who fondly remember Ms. Tonitini’s advices and live by her philosophy on a daily basis. Different stories for different people in a varied, small, but loyal fandom. This proves what a great, passionate team of writers is able to create by taking a simple plot/premise and mix it with a deeply relatable universe of characters, while being highly entertaining. The show has never talked down on its audience, it did, in fact, open our eyes from a very young age and has showed us the world from a different perspective through the amusing lenses of sarcasm.
Kudos to everyone involved, from the creator, to the entire writing team and amazing voice actors. Later days!
fun fact: one of Doug Tennapel's earlier TV cartoons (Project Geeker) was co-created by Doug Langdale, the guy who had developed the original Earthworm Jim cartoon
