Broadcast Run: 
1991 to 2005
Broadcast Medium: 

Broadcast from the fall of 1991 until February 21, 2005, Watatatow was a TV soap opera that portrayed the lives of adolescents. It made use of a good deal of ingenuity and finesse to explore various themes such as AIDS, abortion, heartbreak, single-parent families, families with adopted children, homosexuality and several others. 

The program was also renowned for its impressive number of characters. Only five of them, notably Michel Couillard, played by Hugo Saint-Cyr, participated in all 13 seasons that the show was on the air.
