Mr. Canavan is a minor character in Best Friends Whenever. He appeared in Shake Your Booty.


Mr. Canavan is an English teacher and a big fan of of disco music. He's been a teacher at West Portland High School since at least 1978, and was unfair to the students who liked punk (until Cyd and Shelby changed the past).


Mr. Canavan is usually very strict, especially around punk kids. He expects the disco kids to always be dancing, and is very fond of their music. In the present, he still thinks disco is the best and made his students write essays on disco once.


Disco is the grooviest music ever. It should be shared with the world like love, wood paneling, and this new sugar substitute called "saccharin".


  • He mentions he likes saccharin which was a very popular sugar substitute in the seventies.
