Reruns

Episodes of all three seasons were shown for several years on Disney Channel, ending with a run of Season 3 during the year 2001. Bug Juice was subsequently pulled from the air and was not shown again until the summer of 2004, during which episodes from the first season ran nightly in chronological order. The last episode of Bug Juice aired August 20, 2004, and it has not been shown since.

During the summer of 2006, Disney began posting mini episodes on its Web site, encouraging viewers of the Disney Channel to log on and view 5-minute short clips from episodes of the first season. Also some episodes have been found on YouTube, mainly the first season.

Episodes can be found on www.youtube.com

Bug Juice was also broadcast in the UK on Channel 4's The Bigger Breakfast.

Effects on Camp Popularity

Bug Juice's popularity is thought to have led to an increase in the number of kids in the US (and other countries where the show was aired) wanting to attend a summer camp, as well as the number of people wanting to work a summer season at a camp.

Trivia

  • The show's success encouraged Disney Channel to pick up three more reality series for its lineup: Totally Hoops; Totally in Tune; and another show called Totally Circus about a youth circus in New England called Circus Smirkus.
  • Brush Ranch Camps, the location for season three, has since closed its doors as a traditional summer camp. The camps still operate as rental facilities for schools and other groups. More information can be found on its Web site, below.
