Check out For Better or For Worse animated series

I wasn’t aware there was an animated series of Lynn Johnston’s For Better or For Worse.

Here’s the beginning and ending credits. I’m quite impressed about how Lynn-esque it is. They really kept the show in line with the spirit and look of the strip.

Here’s an episode:

The series lasted two seasons (eight episodes each) in 2000.

Ditto Alan – seems like it was a really good animation of the strip.

It looks exactly like the comic strip! I’m impressed.

One of the best features of this series was seeing Lynn drawing her characters. A real treat. Though it only lasted 2 seasons, it’s lived on via reruns … at least, here in Canada :)

In the second animation, I wonder who came up with “C. Butts” on the janitor’s door? (At 3:50 in the video.)

“For Better or For Worse” was animated a few times. There were various specials before the series, too.

I always like to see what the characters sound like. You know, to see if what I am hearing in my head all these years matches up.

I remember watching some animated half hour FBOFW episodes around 1993/1994 , does anybody know of these?

I seem to remember “For Better Or For Worse” specials having aired on the Disney Channel back when it was a pay-TV service. Interesting the TV show never aired here in America though I’m sure that strip has had a solid following over the years.
