Local high school jock Tommy Dawkins (Brandon Quinn) has nothing to worry about until he's bitten by a werewolf. Not knowing what to do, he befriends the local effeminate genius goth Merton Dingle (Danny Smith) and together they team up to fight the weirdness and monsters that pour into the town of Pleasantville, even though almost everyone believes that their protector, "The Pleasantville Werewolf", is viciously dangerous, all the while Tommy tries to keep his life as normal as possible and go out with Stacy Hanson (Rachelle Lefevre). When Stacy moves out east to begin college early, the boys meet Lauren "Lori" Baxter (Aimée Castle) who discovers Tommy is a werewolf and helps them in their supernatural encounters.The series lasted from April, 1999 to April, 2002. A total of 65 episodes in 3 seasons. An incredibly lighthearted show that essentially existed to parody shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Charmed, and replace their Wangst with lighthearted slapstick and goofy wordplay. A Canadian production, it ran on the Fox Family Channel and YTV.

Getting Crap Past the Radar
 Big Wolf on Campus / int_29878201
comment
Getting Crap Past the Radar: On two separate episodes, Tommy used the fake ID name of Hugh G. Balzak. In the pilot episode Merton's sister flat out states "Hey, Merton, if you're done downloading nudie pics of Sabrina The Teenage Witch, dinner's ready." Tommy tells Merton that part of him wants to tell Lori he's a werewolf. "And I wonder what part of you (pelvic thrust) that is." Merton goes looking for a way to reverse a spell online. The method he finds fails, and the website claims he didn't want it badly enough, leading him to yell "You don't understand how bad I want it!" just as his sister walks in. "I thought Mom and Dad blocked those sites?" "Merton, bone me!" Merton talking about trying to impress a girl he likes with money: "I just want her to know, I've got a big wad and I'm willing to blow it all on her!" "Tommy, she's got balls." (bowling balls). "How does Merton excite you?" Lori, when trying to get Tommy to change into a werewolf, followed by denial from Tommy. In one episode, Sloan, the latest Monster of the Week, is a hot girl that both Tommy and Merton want to ask to prom, turns the former against the latter in order to give him the kiss of death (as she's already done with Merton) by blatantly implying that Merton said he was gay. "Well, I guess what Merton said is true. You really don't like girls. He said you're really into sports and hanging out with the guys, and girls aren't really your thing." -Sloan

Continuity Snarl: On three occasions Tommy meets other werewolves. Each of these three appearances completely contradict the others regarding werewolf society (although this is Lampshaded in one of the episodes, in which Merton is surprised to find that the female werewolf Tommy meets, unlike the last group, has no desire to turn him evil).

Shout-Out: As mentioned in the Running Gag, the plots were usually comparable to a movie (or The Twilight Zone episode, in some cases). Although sometimes this went as far as being a Whole Plot Reference. There was even one to the movie Pleasantville. Not to mention an appearance by Muffy the Werewolf Slayer.

Our Werewolves Are Different: Eat wolfsbane before your first full moon after being bitten, and you don't become a werewolf. If you don't, you can still bite someone who has, and be cured by ingesting their werewolf antibodies. And apparently only specific types of werewolves are capable of creating new ones. And where there's an entire Syndicate of evil werewolves that can't, Tommy can. In addition to werewolves, there is also French exchange student who is a werecat.

By the end of the episode, and thanks to a convenient time-skip montage, he's back down to his normal size. In another episode, Tommy gains weight and gets a small one of these.

Brought Down to Normal
 Big Wolf on Campus / int_679d4fb9

Brought Down to Normal: In one episode, Tommy gets his lycanthropy extracted from him. He enjoys it for a while, until he realizes that the process is making him weaker and weaker until he would die. Oh, and that the doctor that did the extraction was planning on using the... extraction to create a werewolf army to take over the world. There's also an episode where Tommy is mysteriously sent to a "What if?" dimension in which he was never bitten by the werewolf, and also tore his ACL removing him from the football team and putting him in the glee club. A rival football player was bitten instead and quickly proves to be a bad werewolf. Tommy quickly is rebitten to save Lori and Merton and realizes that being the Pleasantville Werewolf is better than the alternative.

With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Werewolves are evil as a matter of course, unless they're just too stupid. The Evil Werewolf Syndicate has almost no problem taking new leader Tommy's order of "Stop being Evil". At least, until Merton sends the previously mentioned werewolf-eating vampires at them, causing the only survivor to plot revenge. Although the survivor does show no signs of trying again after he is defeated and let off with a slap on the wrist. Said character, makes Tommy look smart. The werewolves of Lycanthia also seem to not be evil. Apparently there's no reason to be evil in a kingdom of only werewolves.

Our Vampires Are Different: While "normal" vampires do appear, one episode features special vampires, who only feed on werewolves. They are normal vampires, it's just that they thought all werewolves were evil, so they figured it was more moral to eat them than to feed on people.

Lampshade Hanging: Besides the Running Gag of "Hey, this plot is just like that movie." Tommy once asked Merton to explain how Butch, a character from a 50s 'educational' film, could jump out of the projection. Merton tries to come up with some convincing Techno Babble but only confuses himself, to the point where he doesn't know where he is anymore. Not to mention that when the season three premiere continued from where the season two finale had ended, Lori and Tommy's actors' hairstyles had changed and Tommy mentions this

Crazy-Prepared: When Merton is turned to stone by Medusa, it is discovered that Merton has prepared tapes to be viewed should anything happen to him, where he explains how to cure him of any supernatural fate that might befall him, even going as far to use title cards so that the tapes can simply be fast forwarded to the applicable cause of death. Unfortunately, after hours of fast forwarding, it turns out being turned to stone is not covered on the tapes. Also note that the potential causes of death the tapes cover include Celine Dion. Not quite as impressive, but still: When he "suits up" to go up against Vampire!Corey Haim. He even lampshades this when he points out that the headband might be a bit "too effeminate".

This is referenced twice, in one episode Merton is seen composing said song, and in the last episode, he appears during the opening and remarks "I wrote this!"

Demoted to Extra: Recurring characters Tim & Travis gradually received less screen time as the series progressed, to the point that one of left the show and the other was only mentioned once afterward, purely to explain where the other was.

Damned by Faint Praise: Merton combines this with Stealth Insult. "I think you combined the articulation of Arnold Schwarzenegger with the emotional range of Jean Claude van Damme." Tommy doesn't get it.

Reality Subtext: Tommy's werewolf form was a bit more drastic (as evidenced in the pilot), but the actor playing him had an allergic reaction to the glue used, to it had to be toned down to the more subtle appearance.

Curse Cut Short: A demon is opening a portal to hell and before he can say hell, he's interrupted by Lori's cry of "Hello!" Plus they usually avoid saying hell outright at all. This is especially noticeable in episodes with demons; often Hell will be Hades, or the Underworld. Merton is quite fond of swearing. See: and:

RunningGag
 Big Wolf on Campus / int_ee2ee36
comment
Running Gag: Merton would keep commenting how this week's plot was just like some movie; when asked what happened, he'd give a real world answer, e.g. the director's later career. His exasperated audience would demand to know about the movie, only occasionally giving in to the urge to shake him. At one point, Merton starts detailing his experience with a cute girl in the movie theater, causing even more annoyance "the MOVIE! the picture movie!!" Tommy and Merton even got one of these jokes in when Tommy was hypnotized and only barely conscious. Merton began referencing The Manchurian Candidate and Sinatra's career, only to get smacked upside the head. In an episode where a Terminator-esque robot disguised as Merton appears, Merton references the movie and Tommy and Lori, for once, know what he's talking about. Merton seems disappointed that he doesn't get to derail. Tommy even gets in on the act in the Wonderful Life episode, where he gets to pull this on Merton: Also, Merton tends to ask the Monster of the Week (especially when they're about to kill him), "So, you're a (Insert monster here), what's that like?"
