Waynehead was a Canadian-American animated television show that aired on Kids' WB! from 1996-1997 and was produced by comedian Damon Wayans.[1] The show later had subsequent reruns on Cartoon Network in the early 2000s. The show will be available on HBO Max.

On April 20th, 2021, the entire series was made available on iTunes, Amazon and Vudu.[2]


The plot followed a 10-year-old African American boy named Damey Wayne (voiced by Orlando Brown) growing up in a poor urban area in lower Manhattan, New York. Damey was created based on inspiration from Damon Wayans' personal experiences growing up. In the show, Damey was born with a club foot and each episode illustrated what it is like living in a lower-class neighborhood and the challenges that come with it, as well as describing the challenges of having a disability. The show was aimed to add more diversity to the WB TV show lineup. Writing for the show was done by Grant Moran, Diane Dixon, Kevin Hopps, David Wyatt, and Janice Wells. Production was supervised by Grant Moran and Lenord Robinson.[3]


The show was eventually cancelled after only one season of thirteen episodes. While it was primarily cancelled for it's lower ratings, it's speculated that it was because Damon Wayans was currently appearing on 2 programs on network rival, Fox. Damon claims to have also been told that his show was, "Not black enough or funny enough".[4]
