Station X was an animated/live-action series that aired on both the English and French channels of Teletoon. The show revolved around six young media-savvy people, in their late teens to early twenties, all living in a loft in Montreal, Canada.

Station X was created by Quebec-based film producer Cité-Amérique, now part of FRV Media. Episodes were produced in English and dubbed to produce the corresponding French episodes, although text that appeared on the screen was in French, such as the election posters in "Power".


The show's style is noted for being unique with it combination of original animation and film clips.

Most clips are music videos, although other clips, such as pieces of movies or televisions shows, are also shown. Notable sources include The Kids in the Hall and Sam Roberts, and many episodes contain an Angry Kid short.

The episodes had minimal plots. In each episode one character had a moral dilemma or issue, and they would discuss it with each of the other characters, each showing their point of view on the subject. A clip would then play, usually referenced to in the discussion, and occasionally directly introduced, to illustrate their point.

Another unique feature of Station X is that there the screen was never filled. For each camera angle the image had a different shape and size with an edge looked rough, like torn paper. Sometimes two different angles of the same scene where shown at the same time. Even the film clips didn't fill the screen, as widescreen movie clips and music videos where shown letter boxed, while 4:3 video was shown smaller with blank space around all four sides, with the source information under it at the beginning and end of the clip. For the Madness episode, the blank space was white instead of black.
