Status: Partially Lost

Total Drama was a Canadian animated TV series which aired on Teletoon in Canada and Cartoon Network in the United States from 2007 to 2014 for a total of 5 seasons, with 2 new seasons having been announced[1].

It was produced by Fresh TV, which produced other shows such as 6teen and Grojband, and created by Jennifer Pertsch and Tom McGillis. Each season centered on a group of teenagers who competed to win cash in a competitive reality series, with a varying theme per season. Every episode revolved around the contestants competing in challenges for prizes and invincibility from elimination, as they are progressively eliminated until one is left. The show debuted on July 8, 2007 on Teletoon with Total Drama Island, where 22 teenagers competed on a Survivor-like island for C$100,000.

In addition, every episode had an accompanying exclusive clip which would play as a bonus video after each episode has ended, with some other exclusive clips airing as shorts on both networks. These videos usually showed audition tapes, post-elimination clips, and post-challenge clips. While many of the clips have surfaced online, some remain missing.

Search Efforts

So far, very little has come forward regarding the lost clips. The official Total Drama website went defunct in 2014 and was not properly archived, leaving a lot of material from the website to be lost. Exclusive clips have been posted to the website before, but it is unknown if they contained any of the lost clips. The clips from Total Drama Island possibly aired in between episodes 26 and 27 in both Canada and the USA. Despite several recorded tapes being checked during that time, there has been no footage from the clips.

In terms of Total Drama World Tour, all of the lost footage was found by YouTube user Alexander234567810[2], who uploads Polish Total Drama content. They recorded several exclusive clips during their Polish airing, albeit using a phone camera pointed at the screen, resulting in poor video and audio quality. This was the only footage available for 8 years, until all three clips were uploaded in high quality in Romanian by YouTube user SigmaZeke[3] on August 26, 2021, including English subtitles. The English versions remain hidden.

For Total Drama Pahkitew Island, the only lost clip of Chris selecting the contestants was found in Italian from Youtube user Asietta 〈3 [4], who recorded their television screen with a phone. It's possible that the clip aired a month or two before the premier of the season, but that is currently unknown. No new versions of the clip have been found.

Name Description Air Date Status
Izzy's Scary Story The clip featured Izzy, one of the contestants, telling a "scary story" to her fellow campers, where she recounts about how she had to go to a hospital after suffering from a broken leg as a result of a tobogganing incident. She also recounts of her experience meeting a guy who had a worm which was stuck in his stomach sticking out of his mouth to eat a chocolate bar, resulting in one of the campers, Heather, barfing. This causes Izzy to exclaim, "I told you I could make her barf!". This leaves most of the other campers surprised. Possibly between January 4, 2008 and November 29, 2008 (Canada)

Possibly between December 11, 2008 and December 18, 2008 (USA)

Chef's Roadkill Café commercials The clips featured commercials advertising Chef Hatchet's, who was the notorious cook and co-host of the show, "Roadkill Café".

In the first clip, Chef Hatchet talks about his cafe, and states that the meat that he uses is always fresh, and promotes an offer whereby he offers a complimentary squirrel popper if one were to mention the words "Total Drama Island" to him.

In the second clip, it shows Chef serving his food to Lindsay and Harold, two campers of Total Drama Island. Both are disgusted by the food served to them, especially Lindsay, who runs away and barfs.
