With both Canada Day and Independence Day coming up, it’s the perfect time to look at some of the Sullivan productions which take place in both Canada and the USA:
1. Anne of Green Gables: The Continuing Story
The third Anne of Green Gables film
takes Anne and Gilbert from their beloved PEI to New York City, where Anne works for a publisher and Gilbert is working for a prestigious hospital. Their time in New York is brief before the lure of island life calls them home, but I’ve always liked that there was that brief glimpse into the bustle of New York in the early 1900’s.
2. Road To Avonlea: Season 7, episode 11 “Return To Me”
This episode sees Felicity and Hetty King travelling from Avonlea PEI, Canada to Charleston South Carolina, USA in hopes of finding Gus Pike. This is by far my favourite episode of Road to Avonlea
and I love that it takes Felicity on such a big journey from her island home to the big city of Charleston. It’s a culture shock to be sure, and one that she and Hetty need to adjust to quickly.
3. By Way Of The Stars
, which includes stars from Road To Avonlea and other Sullivan productions, is a western at heart, taking the characters on a journey across the American west and into Canada. It’s one of my favourite Sullivan productions and I really enjoy the epic journey across the dangerous and untamed west.
4. Promise The Moon
Another western, this film
takes place on a Ranch in the Canadian West and briefly in Chicago Illinois when the foreman of the ranch goes to rescue his employer’s son from the hospital he has been institutionalized in. This film is wonderfully acted and very cinematic.
5. Anne of Avonlea/ Anne of Green Gables the Sequel
The second Anne film
also finds Anne visiting the USA when she takes a trip to Boston with the Harris family. The rest of the film of course takes place in Anne’s home of Avonlea, Prince Edward Island and Kingsport, Nova Scotia where Anne is teaching for the majority of the film.

As some of you may have seen, over the past week our team has been launching a series of Gilbert Blythe and Gus Pike initiatives including a Gilbert and Gus website, products and related articles. It has been much to our surprise that so many of our fans have shown such support for Gilbert Blythe and not Gus! Where are the Gus Fans out there?
I write of course from the perspective of someone who has grown up being a fan of both characters. I can’t lie though — it has surprised me that our Gilbert wristbands sold out in 2 hours but those for Gus did not? And it’s not just wristbands. Facebook posts, discussion boards, and products simply imply that Team Gus has either transformed itself into Team Gilbert or potentially has disappeared altogether…?
Could this be true?
