Owen headshot (TDI-G&S)

This character page is designed for use with Total Drama Island, by Gilbert and Sullivan


Owen is a gluttonous, supersized lad who is eternally cheerful, will eat anything remotely edible, and is prone to verbal gaffes. The eventual winner, he was the only camper who did not complain about the (intentionally) poor quality of Chef Hatchet’s cooking, and was the camper most likely to greet challenges with enthusiasm.

Despite his poor physical condition, Owen’s sheer bulk gives him great strength, the “blimp of steel” being an animation cliché. Like Harold, Owen is an outdoorsman, although his physique does not reflect this.

Despite being the show’s go-to character for bathroom humor (the prevalence of which is one of the most solid indications that Total Drama Island targets a young demographic), Owen is widely liked by his fellows. Like Geoff, Owen’s main flaw is a tendency to focus on the pleasures of the moment, to the point of losing sight of larger objectives.

In one of his running gags, Owen’s gaffes tended to call his sexuality into question, possibly to enhance his resemblance to Richard Hatch, the first Survivor winner. This gag was abandoned in Total Drama Action, leaving Owen apparently straight.

The animation of Owen’s thick neckline frequently showed Pythonesque crudeness.

Owen's theme

Now to the banquet we press;
Now for the eggs, the ham;
Now for the mustard and cress,
Now for the strawberry jam!

Now for the tea of our host,
Now for the rollicking bun
Now for the muffin and toast,
Now for the gay Sally Lunn!

Owen/Izzy Relationship Theme

“Oh, Joy Unbounded” from Trial By Jury

(click on the link below for the MIDI file)

Oh, joy unbounded,
With wealth surrounded,
The knell is sounded
Of grief and woe.

With love devoted
On you he’s doated
To castle moated
Away they go.

I wonder whether
They’ll live together
In marriage tether
In manner true?

It seems to me, sir,
Of such as she, sir,
A judge is he, sir,
And a good judge, too.

Owen/Mr. Coconut Relationship Theme

If you’re anxious for to shine” (verse 3, MIDI file 3:22 – 4:19) from Patience

(click on the first link above for the MIDI file)

Then a sentimental passion
Of a vegetable fashion
Must excite your languid spleen,
An attachment a la Plato
For a bashful young potato
Or a not-too-French French bean!
Though the Philistines may jostle,
You will rank as an apostle
In the high aesthetic band,
If you walk down Piccadilly
With a poppy or a lily
In your mediaeval hand.
And everyone will say,
As you walk your flowery way,
“If he’s content with a vegetable love which would certainly not suit me,
Why, what a most particularly pure young man this pure young man must be!”
