Skatoony is a partially animated and partially live-action game show in which cartoon characters and children compete against each another. It premiered in many countries and their networks including Canada's Teletoon. It is based on the United Kingdom's format of the show. Several Total Drama characters are seen in the promotional material and in the show itself.
The show's format is that three live-action child contestants and three cartoon characters compete in a quiz show lasting for three rounds. After the first two rounds, two contestants are eliminated. The first round is always Bang On! Or Bogus?, a rapid-fire true-or-false questioning round, while the last two rounds vary between episodes. As contestants are eliminated, they are usually catapulted out of their seats while the two hosts, Chudd Chudders and The Fabulous Earl, sing a song entitled "You're Outta Here!".
Vignettes featuring eliminated contestants interacting with Chudd or The Earl as well as Charles la Puck, their boss, on Skatoony North America, also appear during the progression of the show. In Skatoony North America, this extends to the "during the commercial break" web extras available on the Skatoony website.
Most Total Drama characters make it to the second round before being kicked out. To date, there have been twenty-two second round eliminations (not counting Harold quitting) out of thirty-two total competing appearances. First round eliminations are less common, but do exist, at seven. Occasionally, a character will be kicked off under unfair circumstances. Such examples include B, who never spoke, and Dakota, who underwent a body swap. Only Izzy and Sam have managed to make it to the third and final round. None have actually won, as the show is set up so a live action contestant always emerges victorious.

- This is the first, and currently the only non-Total Drama related show to feature the Total Drama characters.
- It's likely that Total Drama World Tour or Total Drama: Revenge of the Island haven't happened to the contestants yet given the conditions of Ezekiel (who isn't feral), Staci (who still has all her hair), Dakota (who isn't a mutant), and Lightning (who still has brown hair).
