Angela Anaconda is a cutout animation segment co-created by Joanna Ferrone and Sue Rose, that originally started on the Nickelodeon animated sketch comedy series KaBlam! in Season 1 episodes "Untitled (Why June Refuses to Turn the Page)" and "Comics of Champions." It then aired on Fox Family Channel in the United States and Teletoon in Canada, from 1999 to 2001 with 65 total episodes over three seasons.
The show is about a girl named Angela Anaconda, a tomboyish, imaginative, freckle-faced eight-year-old girl who finds herself unpopular in school and always seems to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Nanette Manoir, a fake-French girl who everyone loves and wants to be, always mocks Angela. During each episode, a poem-like story is narrated by Angela. She often gets her revenge on the antagonist of that particular episode, and more often imagines her revenge on explained antagonist in a highly-exaggerated manner.
Two pilot episodes aired on KaBlam!:
- "Chew on This!": Angela is forced to scrape gum during a class picnic.
- "The First Flush of Love": Angela celebrates Valentine's Day with her boyfriend, Johnny Abatti.
- Due to copyright issues, the KaBlam! episodes that included the Angela Anaconda shorts only re-aired internationally during syndication on television.
- Although KaBlam! has begun appearing on streaming sites like VRV and Paramount+, the two episodes where Angela Anaconda was included — "Untitled (Why June Refuses to Turn the Page)" and "Comics of Champions" — are not available, once again because of the difficult copyright situation.
