6teen is a Canadian animated sitcom that aired on Teletoon in Canada, and on Cartoon Network (and on Nickelodeon before it) in the United States. Produced by Nelvana Limited and (beginning with Season 3) Fresh TV Inc. in association with Teletoon, the show premiered on November 4, 2004, with 93 episodes over four seasons (26 half-hour episodes per season in the first three seasons and 13 episodes in the fourth and final season, plus two hour-long specials) produced. 6teen concluded its original run on Teletoon on February 11, 2010 with a back-to-back airing of the final five new episodes, including the two-part series finale "Bye Bye Nikki?".

6teen follows the adventures (and misadventures) of six teenage friends who work and hang out at The Galleria, a huge shopping mall in an unnamed city in the Canadian province of Ontario, which is designed as a cross between two real-life Canadian shopping malls, the West Edmonton Mall in Edmonton, Alberta (by way of its size and number of stores, estimated at 936 in the series pilot, "Take This Job and Squeeze It"), and the Toronto Eaton Centre in Toronto, Ontario (in terms of the mall's design).[1] Typical teenage situations such as first jobs, romantic and social pursuits, and dealing with schoolwork are dealt with in humorous fashion in each episode.

Real-life retail outlets are often parodied in their 6teen equivalents at which the main characters work, shop or eat, such as the Khaki Barn (The Gap), Albatross & Finch (Abercrombie & Fitch), the Big Squeeze lemonade stand (Orange Julius), the Grind Me coffee house (Starbucks), Burger McFlipsters (Burger King and McDonald's), the Penalty Box sporting goods store (Foot Locker) and Stereo Shack (Radio Shack).
