<p>Skatoony (SKAToonY) is a children's quiz show, pitting live-action kids against cartoons. The show is co-produced with Talent Television (for the UK version), Blink Studios (for the Arabic Version), Marblemedia, Teletoon Productions and Smiley Guy Studios (for the Canada-USA version), and is used to air on Cartoon Network in the UK. It is hosted by 'Chudd Chudders' (voiced by Rupert Degas) and 'The Earl' (voiced by Lewis MacLeod).
In 2001, Skatoony began as a competition microsite on the Cartoon Network UK website. In 2006, then appeared the first full length Skatoony TV show. However, a few phone-in shows such as Skatoony Quizmas, Ready Steady Skatoony and Skatoony Truckatoony existed before as a sort of continuity during school holidays. These phone-in shows ended in 2005.
On February 9, 2009, Marblemedia announced they would be producing a North American version of the series Skatoony (in French and English) for Teletoon. The Canadian adaptation, titled Skatoony North America to differentiate it from other adaptations follows the same format. The English version of Skatoony is filmed in Toronto, while the French version is filmed in Montreal with a different set of contestants;</p>
