As Told by Ginger is an American animated series aimed at preteens and teenagers that was produced by Klasky-Csupo and aired on Nickelodeon. The series focuses on a middle schooler (and later a high schooler) girl named Ginger Foutley who, with her friends, tries to become more than a social geek. Most episodes also feature a subplot focused on Carl Foutley, Ginger's brother. The series was noted for the fact that, unusual for a Western animated series, it had ongoing story arcs and characters who developed and aged in real time. As Told by Ginger ended production on 2003, although some episodes were not aired on U.S. television until 2009.
