Total Drama Island (originally titled Camp TV) is the first season of Total Drama.

Overview

This season involves twenty-two sixteen-year-old contestants who signed up to be in a reality show on an island, known as "Total Drama Island." The teens all have different expectations for what camp is going to be like, with the underlying idea that it is going to be a luxurious get-away. According to Chris, to be on the show, one has to be sixteen years old and be either "kooky, obnoxious, stuck-up, dense, loud, annoying, filthy, or anywhere remotely in between." The twenty-two teens chosen are divided into two separate teams: the Screaming Gophers and the Killer Bass.

The two teams were given challenges every three days. The losing team would vote one of their members off, and the contestant that is voted off will have to walk the Dock of Shame and board the Boat of Losers, which will then take them away. At some point in the competition, the teams would dissolve. After the merge, the same elimination process would continue to happen, except then after every challenge only one to two people had invincibility and after every challenge the whole group had to vote somebody out instead of just one team. This process continued until only two contestants were left to compete in a final challenge where the last contestant standing won $100,000.

Elimination

This is the process in Total Drama Island in which a camper is eliminated; initially, the team that lost the most recent challenge, unless the last challenge happened to be a reward challenge, would vote for a camper and the one with the most votes against them would be voted off the island. Since the teams eventually merged, all the campers began to vote for each other and only the challenge winner received immunity. In certain challenges, a camper would be automatically eliminated without any votes if they lost a challenge after the merge.

Total Drama Island: Totally Interactive!

TDILogo

Total Drama Island: Totally Interactive!

The official website for this season, Total Drama Island: Totally Interactive! features, along with information about the series, an interactive campsite with information about the characters, games themed on the episodes, earnable wallpapers, and screensavers, and a camper creator where the player is able to create their own character. On Cartoon Network's website, it was replaced by Total Drama Action EXTRA, though it was still accessible until the website was taken down.

Camp TV

Camp TV is the original prototype for Total Drama Island. In it, there were only eighteen of the current contestants which all had different prototype designs, though some of the designs resemble those of the current contestants and interns.

Censorship in United States

Total Drama Island episodes were usually rated TV-PG in the United States, for suggestive dialogue and aggressive language. On occasion an episode would be rated TV-PG D for mild flirtatious dialogue, such as in X-Treme Torture.

Rewards

Many challenges award prizes to the winner or winners. The usual prize is invincibility for the winning team or contestant. However, on other occasions, rewards were given out as bonuses for their accomplishments.

DVD

Cartoon Network's DVD features the entire season and is in fact edited with the censoring of some dialogue whilst the Australian DVDs (released by Madman Entertainment) are split into two collections and are unedited, retaining the original dialogue as the unedited seasons of Total Drama broadcast there.

Netflix

Total Drama Island has been released onto Netflix. This season contains unedited dialog and full screen, 16:9 aspect ratio. It also includes all the episodes of the season.
