Angela Anaconda is a Canadian cutout animation television series that aired on the channels Teletoon and ABC Family. It centers on the adventures of an eight-year-old girl named Angela who lives in the fictional town of Tapwater Springs, has wacky brothers, weird friends, and hates a snobbish faux-French girl named Nanette Manoir.
Angela Anaconda began as a short skit on the Nickelodeon show Kablam!. Angela Anaconda later became a series and was a hit on Fox Family Channel from 1999 to 2002. In 2001, when Disney bought the Fox Family Channel and changed the network's name to ABC Family, Angela was moved and canceled after two months. The show aired reruns on Nickelodeon in 2004, but was removed about a month later.
The show was created by Joanna Ferrone and Sue Rose, who also created the cartoon character Fido Dido. Sue Rose created Disney's Pepper Ann. The show was produced by DHX Media and C.O.R.E. Digital Pictures. It also airs on Teletoon in Canada. It premiered in the UK on Cartoon Network, and currently airs there on PopGirl, it also airs on POP TV in Slovenia and ABC2 in Australia. Sue Rose also voices the title character.
The show features a very distinct art style, reminiscent of Terry Gilliam's animation from Monty Python's Flying Circus, in which all the characters are made out of cutouts of black and white photographs.
The show now airs on Starz Kids & Family. There there are currently no plans for a DVD release of the full series, though in the UK, Channel 4 released Three separate DVDs containing in total the first 20 episodes.
