Waynehead was a short-lived Kids' WB! animated series created by American actor Damon Wayans. It was co-produced by Warner Bros. Animation and Nelvana, airing 13 episodes as one full season from 1996 to 1997. The show starred Damien "Damey" Wayne, a young boy from a poor background who had to wear a leg brace for his club foot. Along with his friends, he had to contend with bullies using humor. This was based on Wayans' own childhood in the Chelsea neighborhood in the New York City Borough of Manhattan.
Actors featured in the show included Orlando Brown, T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh, Jamil Walker Smith, and Tico Wells. Some of Damon's siblings such as WB veterans Shawn and Marlon, as well as Kim also had roles in the series. Despite the show's low ratings and its swift cancellation by its original network, it was moved to Cartoon Network a year later and aired until late 2000.
- Celebrity Toons - The show was more or less based on Damon Wayans' childhood as an inner city kid, complete with the sense of humor that would later make him famous. Think of it as a dry-run Everybody Hates Chris if it were an animated sitcom for kids.

- Subverted Rhyme Every Occasion: Damey accidentally bumped the Candy Machine and Toof eats a chocolate:
