6teen is a Canadian animated teen sitcom first aired on November 4, 2004. It is created by Tom McGillis and Jennifer Pertsch. It is set in the fictional "Galleria Shopping Mall" and follows an ensemble cast of six sixteen-year-old friends as they explore their first part-time jobs and lives as teenagers. It is a Fresh TV Inc., Nelvana Limited and Teletoon Television Production.
The show has also been re-airing in the USA on Cartoon Network after having been dropped from two other television channels, though is airing episodes in random order. For example, Cartoon Network would air a first season episode as a "new" episode, then the next "new" episode would be from Season 3, and the one after that could come from Season 2, causing much confusion. Due to the slightly more lenient Canadian TV ratings system, the series is always rated G there, but Cartoon Network's rating for 6teen is either TV-PG or TV-PG D.
Since its debut, the program has aired 91 episodes over four seasons, as well as two one-hour specials. The fourth and final season debuted on September 10, 2009, and included 13 episodes, ending on February 11, 2010. A Nelvana Limited production, the series' characters are voiced by young Canadian actors, and the show continues to draw positive response, with critical reception from sources like the Pucinella Awards and the Alliance for Children and Television.

Gwen is one of Tricia's snobbish friends. She wears a pink skirt with ruffles, and black top, a purple hat, and pink sneaker heels. On some occassions, Gwen is rather nice and waves at Wyatt and Jude. This could mean she's only a snob when she's with Tricia.
Julie is a geeky girl who works at Wonder Taco. She wears a white shirt with red rims at the sleeves, red pants, and dark brown shoes. Julie has braces that give her a lisp, and spit when she talks. At Wonder Taco, whenever a customer makes fun of her, she would spill dirt, dust, and her own saliva into the tacos and serve it to her customers. Julie is also Darth's boyfriend. When she would have to wear a costume to the mall, she would dress up as Princess Leia from Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. She, like Darth, is an expert on anything Star Wars related. She would get jealous if she sees Darth with another girl rather than him.
Lydia is an attractive, but crazy woman. She wears a pink shirt, purple jeans, and shoes similar to what Caitlin wears.

Lydia chased Jonesy a lot, and Jonesy used several costumes in the hopes of hiding from her. She also has a weird obsession with chickens, which makes the gang call her a "Crazy Chicken Lady". This obsession is augmented by that the fact she'll give whomever her newest crush with a statue of a rooster.
Marlowe is Wyatt's former girlfriend. She wears a lavender tank and maroon jeans. At the time, she was Wyatt's girlfriend, and both Wyatt and Marlowe are in the same music group. After getting on each other's nerves, Marlowe and Wyatt are good friends.
