Corner Gas Animated is a Canadian animated television series, which is a continuation of Corner Gas, a live-action sitcom that aired from 2004 to 2009. The show was developed by Brent Butt, the creator and star of the original series, and premiered on April 2, 2018, on The Comedy Network. It is now available for streaming on IMDb Freedive.

The animated version picks up a few years after the events of the original show, with the same beloved characters as before. Corner Gas Animated continues to take place in the fictional small town of Dog River, Saskatchewan, and follows the daily lives of the residents such as Brent (Brent Butt), the owner of the Corner Gas station, Lacey (Gabrielle Miller), the proprietor of the only coffee shop in town, Oscar (Eric Peterson) and Emma (Corrine Koslo), the cantankerous elders, and Davis (Lorne Cardinal) and Karen (Tara Spencer-Nairn), the town's police officers.

The show revolves around the townspeople trying to make each day as amusing and fun-filled as possible by engaging in distinctive small-town shenanigans. The community is never too concerned about their modest lifestyle, which is portrayed with warmth and humor, since they have each other for company. Over the seasons, the characters have garnered a passionate following and have become known for their dry and witty humor.

Unlike its live-action predecessor, Corner Gas Animated allows the cast and crew to take the storylines even further with the help of animation. The animated format provides a platform for creating surreal scenarios and amusing visual gags that would be difficult or impossible to execute in live-action. It also enables the show to present some dazzling and imaginative jokes that push the boundaries much further than the original.

The animation in Corner Gas Animated pays homage to the characters' original designs but has altered them somewhat. The characters are now stylized and cartoonish but still recognizable, and all of their quirks and personalities are still present. Additionally, the show has added new characters that complement the existing characters very well, enhancing the dynamic of the town and the show in general.

The humor of Corner Gas Animated has remained consistent with that of the original series. It is droll, witty, and somewhat absurd. The show has retained its formula of blending small-town life with absurd and silly storylines, the perfect recipe for comic mayhem. The show's humor offers audiences an opportunity to chuckle and forget their worries for a moment, something that is becoming a rarity these days as the world becomes more and more hectic.

The themes discussed in Corner Gas Animated are topical and relatable to everyone. They include friendships, love, loyalty, and the perils of small-town living. One thing that sets the show apart is the diversity portrayed among the characters. Even though they inhabit a small Canadian town, their cultural backgrounds are diverse, and the show does well in highlighting this.

Overall, Corner Gas Animated has lived up to fan expectations and continued the story framework of the original series with flying colors. It has become an immediate fan-favourite and has even gained some new fans. But it's not just the strong narrative, humor, and animation that make this show a hit; it's the characters we love and have grown attached to over the years. They've become like family to us, and no matter how silly or zany the storyline, we can always rely on them to make us feel good.

In conclusion, Corner Gas Animated - with its delightful, humorous, and endearing cast of characters - is sure to provide endless entertainment to fans of the original series, as well as new viewers. Its animation format allows for more fantastic, imaginative storylines, while its relatable themes make audiences feel right at home. It is a breath of fresh air in the oversaturated world of television, reminding us that sometimes, simplicity is the best way to tell a story.
