The Populars are the primary antagonists in The Off-Beats, a traditional animation segment seen on the Nickelodeon animated anthology series KaBlam!. They are a group of clever kids, usually seen traveling in a huge nose-in-the-air clump, led by Tina. Whenever they come across an adult, they all put on phony smiles and pretend to be really nice. But, a beatnik named Grubby Groo knows that they're just mean. The Populars don't only walk together but they sleep and live together as well, and each individual is qualified a bathroom break allowing separation of the group to commence, this is how Beth was able to talk to Tommy in the Valentine's Day special episode.
