    Happy New Year, TeenNick-ers! If you stay up late tonight, be sure to roll out of bed by noon (eastern time) tomorrow, because that's when Every Degrassi Ever Weekends start.

    I picked out a few more photos from our Degrassi archives:

    Intense eye contact.
    Are you sure you want to do that, Marco?
    Young love.
    Sean and Emma, checkin' each other out in the hall.

    Jimmy & Ashley, Marco & Ellie, Toby & Kendra, Manny & Craig, Emma & Sean... These pics feel like a reminder of how complicated relationships are, especially on TV. Which couple from Degrassi's early seasons is your favorite?

  • Get ready for some serious Degrassi.

    We'll be stuffing your TV with serious amounts of Degrassi this weekend. (Every Degrassi Ever weekends start at noon et on Saturday!)

    Yesterday I posted a bunch of cute, smiley Degrassi photos, so today I found some serious ones to balance things out.

    Ellie doesn't look happy.
    Craig looks a teensy bit creepy here.
    PMS!!!
    Totally serious.

    Want more classic Degrassi pics? Come back tomorrow. :)

  • I want to pinch your cheeks, Degrassi!

    Check out how smiley and huggable the Degrassi kids looked back in the day. So many rosy pink cheeks! So much cuteness!

    Aww... Degrassi babies!

    It makes me wish I had a time machine so I could go back and give them all some serious life advice. ("Manny, don't sleep with Craig." "J.T., if you ever see anybody peeing on your car, RUN AWAY.")

    What advice would you give these huggable l'il Degrassi-ites?

  • Old-timey pics of Jimmy, Paige, J.T. and more.

    We at TeenNick wish you Happy Holidays, Happy New Year and Happily Ever After Your Whole Life Long!

    And, good news! We picked your names out of the Secret Santa hat, so here's your prezzie... a new Degrassi poster! It looks like this:

    TeenNick's present for you - a new Degrassi poster!

    Some assembly required... we broke it down into three 8x10 pieces:
    Right-click and save for part 1
    Right-click and save for part 2
    Right-click and save for part 3

    This way you can print those out and put 'em together to make your very own Deg-oration. Oh my God, I just said Deg-oration, clearly I need to stop working and go to Australia. Have a GREAT holiday, enjoy your winter break, I hope it snows only exactly as much as you want it to, and I hope all of your wishes come true forever. Unless you make bad wishes.

    Enjoy your new poster!

    PEACE!

    The 12 Boys of Degrassi

    It's Day 3 of the Degrassi Boys celebration, time to celebrate...

    ♥Wesley♥!

    Anya described Wesley as "the type of guy that girls love." He's super-sweet, he's not fake, and if you win him at a bachelor auction, he'll save up his allowance till he can afford to rent a limo for your date. He's THAT nice.

    My favorite things about Wesley are that he's a really good friend (I still can't believe he forgave Dave after the taser incident) and he's really funny. Exhibit A: His election-themed rap:

    I love this Wesley quote from when Drew's trying to teach him about girls:

    Drew: "If you wanna impress Anya so she'll bid on you at the bachelor auction you're gonna need one thing."
    Wesley: "A bowtie!"

    What are your favorite Wesley moments, quotes, or election-themed rap lyrics? Post them in the comments. And check out our full Wesley Playlist for more chuckle-worthy and cringe-worthy Wesley videos.

    Oh, Wesley. You are proof that a boy can be awkward and awesome at the same time.

    The 12 Boys of Degrassi

    Day 2 of our celebration of the spirit of Degrassi Boys brings us....

    ♥Peter♥!

    Though he first came into our lives as the spoiled son-of-a-principal who showed everyone Manny's boobs and was preeetty much responsible for Sean going to jail, Peter has redeemed himself in fits and starts over the years. There was that time he emotionally supported Darcy through the aftermath of her rape, the way he was there for Emma when she struggled with an eating disorder... and of course, what one could argue was his most impressive act of selflessness: standing by Riley and keeping a secret after Riley misunderstood their friendship and tried to kiss him.

    Plus there was that whole thing where he met his little sister and kissed her little baby head:

    Look at him kiss that baby's head! He's such a sweet little baby-head-kisser! It's not fair that Peter kept losing girlfriends to other continents (and meth habits), but it's always nice to see him looking so contented and sage-like behind the counter at the Dot.

    What was your favorite Peter moment, quote, or button-down shirt? Drop it in the comments! And you can also check out our full Peter Playlist with a bounty of Peter-y episodes and clips. Enjoy!

  • The 12 Boys of Degrassi: Spinner!

    Posted on 12/13/2010 by Mary

    'Tis the season! Whatever holiday(s) are on your mind right now, we're adding one to the list: the joyful, boytastic, and utterly non-denominational celebration of Degrassi Manhood that is...

    The 12 Boys of Degrassi

    Every day for the next 12 days we'll be rhapsodizing about the specimens of Degrassi boyhood who made 2010 shine so brightly.

    Our first Boy of Degrassi is... ♥Spinner♥.

    In his own special, Spinner-y way, he's been an embodiment of what Degrassi is about. Remember when he was a homophobe... but learned to get over it for Marco's sake? The time he battled cancer and won? And all those times he messed up, but sought and found the forgiveness of his friends?

    And of course we mustn't forget his "health food" boners; his hair (and his other hair, and his other other hair); the way he said "She used me for my body"; ... and of course, that time he married Emma (!). What have been your favorite Spinner moments/quotes/storylines? Drop them in the comments... let's have a Spinner party!

    We leave you with this classic Spinner scene -- classic because it involves his charming candidness, an oh-so-Spinner reference to his junkular area, and a demonstration of that hard-won best buds forever bromance with Jimmy that always touched our hearts.

    Also, the part where he flexes those guns doesn't suck.

    Enjoy more Spinner-vision in our 12 Boys of Degrassi: Spinner playlist... chock full of Spinner moments and full episodes from the highlights of his tenure.

    Keep calm though, because excitement makes him fart.
