The Angry Beavers is an American animated television series created by Mitch Schauer for the Nickelodeon channel. The series revolves around Daggett and Norbert Beaver, two young beaver brothers who have left their home to become bachelors in the forest near the fictional Wayouttatown, Oregon. The show premiered in the United States on April 19, 1997.[1] The show started airing on the Nickelodeon Canada channel when it launched on November 2, 2009. The series aired on The '90s Are All That block on TeenNick in the US on October 7, 2011 as part of the block's U Pick with Stick line-up. The series was also up for a U Pick with Stick showdown on The '90s Are All That for the weekend of February 3, 2012, but lost to Rocko's Modern Life and did not air. The series was added to the Sunday line-up on The '90s Are All That, and will air every sunday on the block since February 10, 2013. The series is also currently being released on DVD.[2][3][4]

In-jokes

There were several in-jokes throughout The Angry Beavers run. One involves Richard Steven Horvitz, the voice of Daggett, being mentioned in the episode "Tree of Hearts", as well as the birth of his oldest son, Jake Elliot Horvitz, who was born on April 11, 1998:

Norbert: [reading mail] Hey, Daggett! Look at this! [reading letter] Richard Horvitz had a little baby boy, April 11th!
Daggett: Ooh!
Norbert: Jake Elliot Horvitz.
Daggett: Wow! That's great!
Norbert: I think so.
Daggett: Who's Richard Horvitz?
Norbert: Nobody.

The use of "spoot" in place of swear words, such as an in exclamation ("Oh spoot!") or a descriptor ("What a pile of spoot" or "You're a spoot-head"), was another form of in-jokes in the series. Although these were said primarily by Daggett, they were used by Norbert from time to time.

Both beavers would often mispronounce common words in pseudo-French or otherwise foreign pronunciation. For example, pronouncing refrigerator as "re-frige-er-A-twoah/re-frige-er-ize-or", mine as "my-yun", natural which Norbert pronounces as "nature-ral", and "Canada" as "Ca-naa-da". Characters would also elongate words, particularly each other's names, with superfluous syllables, such as "Norbie-orbie" and "Dag-a-lag-a-ding-dong." On occasion, they would use foreign words but mispronounce them: for example, pronouncing the French word "moi" phonetically as "moy".
