  • Disney's smash hit Kim Possible is focused on the everyday life of a high school teen. Kim Possible has to find a balance with everything school related, and battling super villains on a regular basis. Of course, all heroes need a wisecracking, clumsy partner. Kim is no exception. The comic relief of the heroic duo, Ron Stoppable, is always there for Kim, though his pet and second best friend Rufus, the naked mole rat, is always there to help out the duo when the going gets rough. The series won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Sound Mixing - Live Action and Animation.Character Guide:Kim Possible: High school cheerleader by day, crime fighter by. . . well, day as well. She still has to be home by curfew, after all. Kim has no secret identity, which makes her that much more of a hero in that people can relate to her and don't seem to make a big deal out of it, mostly at her insistence. Her fiery red hair is a symbol of her attitude that is best summed up by the phrase, "I can do anything." She is stubborn, strong-willed, and has a fuse shorter than a grenade with a three second delay. Despite all of this, however, she is extremely humble, refusing to take credit for her truly amazing actions.Ron Stoppable: Kim's best friend, partner, and in fourth season boyfriend. His nonconformist "never be normal" philosophy is applied to all facets of his life, and he has taught Kim a thing or two about peer pressure. He takes great pride in eating, and is the proud inventor of the Naco. Unlike Kim, who refuses to take credit for her actions, Ron is, as Kim puts it, "prone to big-headiness." While he's a bit of a glory hound, he always shares it with Kim (often to her chagrin) instead of soaking up the limelight. His unwavering devotion to Kim is simultaneously his greatest strength and his greatest weakness, for while it is the trait that makes her take notice of him, it also leads to her taking him for granted more often than not.Dr. Drakken: For a supergenius, Theodore "Drew" P. Lipsky aka Dr. Drakken is pretty stupid. He has the brains to come up with some great ideas, but he lacks the patience it takes to iron out all the kinks and get his inventions fully functional. If it wasn't for Shego, he would have been out of the villain game a long time ago.Shego: Essentially Kim's dark reflection. Both are smart, athletic, attractive, not to mention they both have green eyes. The only difference is that Shego has raven black hair as opposed to Kim's auburn locks, and the fact that she chooses to use her powers for evil rather than good. And boy, does she have powers. Her fiery personality is illustrated perfectly in her ability to encapsulate her hands in green plasma, as well as shoot these bursts of plasma at whomever she chooses. Shego takes great pride in sidelining Drakken's megalomaniacal ranting with the occasional snide remark and attempts to act as the voice of reason but fails utterly because Drakken is, well, insane. Why exactly she sticks around other than that is uncertain, but it may have to do with some feelings that may forever go unexplored.Wade: As Kim's gadget guy and operator of her website, Wade is an invaluable addition to Team Possible. Despite only being 13, he holds several PhDs and can type at over 300 words per minute. He is a genius at all things technical, and proves invaluable as a support operator. He would be world renowned if he ever left his room, but the fact that he has only left it once shows signs that Wade suffers from agorophobia, the fear of going out into public.Mr. Dr. Possible: As a rocket scientist, he's a living analogy for intelligence. He views women as equals with their own opinions rather than as underlings to be ordered around, and for this reason he is a great father to Kim and lets her live her own life, but he has letting go issues. He just can't handle the fact thas someday somebody will take away "his" Kimmie-cub, who will forever remain four to him. But with Kim now dating Ron, he'll have to let go sooner or later.Mrs. Dr. Possible: Top brain surgeon and mother to Kim, Mrs. Dr. Possible has yet another analogy attached to her name. She is essentially Kim all grown up. Smart, independent, attractive, and not afraid to have a little fun, the Possible matriarch is a little more lenient than her husband, but she still enforces the rules when they truly matter.Jim & Tim Possible: Kim's twin brothers or "Tweebs" as she calls them. They are super smart, but they use their intelligence more to annoy their sister than anything else. Despite the annoyance that they can be, twin supergeniuses can be quite useful on a mission.Bonnie: If Shego is Kim's dark reflection, then Bonnie is Kim's polar opposite. Her stuck up, pessimistic, OCD, holier-than-thou attitude makes her the typical cheerleader. She makes it her mission to make Kim's social life miserable, but ends up failing most of the time.Monique: Essentially a guidance counselor in the form of an African American teen. "Wise beyond her years" is the understatement of the century when it comes to Kim's best female friend. She has the uncanny ability to identify the source of and solution to other people's problems, which means she'll make an excellent therapist some day. Like Kim, Monique stands up for herself and refuses to let herself be controlled, earning a steady salary as a salesgirl at Club Banana. She is also an avid wrestling fan, which gives her and Ron something in common.moreless

    • Kim: And I gotta tell you, Drakken was easy compared to this. Ron: Reality check, Kim. If you can defeat an international superfreak, you can handle Josh Mankey. Wade: (on the Kimmunicator) Kim. He has just left third period, and is headed your way! Kim: What? Wade: Subject: Mankey. I triangulated his position on a GPS satellite. He's passing the gym. (Kim runs into the nearest broom closet, and drags Ron with her) Ron: Okay, I think you've crossed the line here. Kim: I... can't do it Wade: Target is on the move. Closing in... 4... 3... 2... he's on top of you! Kim: Maybe I just give up Ron: I repeat... (in a megaphone) you can handle this! (Kim runs out of closet acting very nervous) Josh: Hey. Kim: Hey. Um, oh... I'm sorry about the banner. You know, the one I tore down. Josh: It was kinda weak anyway. Kim: Oh, great! I mean, too bad. New one's better? Josh: Much. Don't tear it down. Kim: Definitely not. (nervous) Eh... guess I'll see you at the dance, huh? Maybe I'll see...you there. Josh: At the dance? Kim: Sure! Maybe you'll be there? Maybe with me? Josh: Are you, what, asking me to the dance? Kim: I know, I know, I sound so random, but yes, yes, I am. Josh: Cool. Kim: Very. Josh: So I'll come by around seven? Ron: (in megaphone) I need a ride too. (Kim slams the closet door) You can swing by around seven fifteen. Actually, no, my mom's gonna be hanging my pants, so maybe, like, seven thirty?

    • (Wade is hacking into the robo-warrior) Wade: I'm in! Computer: Password required. Wade: Huh? Oh, great! Um... Nakasumi? (writes in password) Computer: Access denied. (at Drakken's lair) Ron: Flying kick now. (He tries to take a flying kick to the robot, but a claw from it grabs him) Robo-Warrior: Konnichiwa Ron: ...and now I'm upside down. Drakken: Ooh. The buffoon. (Rufus falls down) Ron: Rufus! (Kim shoots her grappling rope, and flies down to grab Rufus) Drakken: What!? (tries to take down Kim using the robot's arms) Drakken: (has Kim cornered) You should have stuck to babysitting! What makes you think an ordinary teenager could possibly defeat me? Wade: (still trying to figure out the password) Uh... Z-Boy? Computer: Access denied. Wade: We do not have time for this! Robo-Warrior: Konnichiwa Wade: Ah! Konnichiwa! (laser beam deactivates just as it was going to blast Kim when Wade then appears on the big screen) Wade: Score! Kim: Wade! Drakken and Ron: (in choir) What? Drakken: No-ho! Ron: Busted! Drakken: Indeed. (Shego removes the Kimmunicator as the robot begins to go berserk. Kim and Shego fight in the control room, and spins around, with Drakken and Ron hanging in the arms)

    • (Kim is climbing up the back of the Robo-warrior) Kim: Where is that override thingy? (a camera appears and Drakken sees Kim, just before she knocks out the camera) Drakken: Get of my back! (one of the robo-warrior's claws rips off big parts of the back, and reveals the override module) Kim: Yes! (she attaches the Kimmunicator to the override module) Good luck, Wade!

    • Drakken: She's gone! It's impossible! Ron: Actually, it's Possible. Kim Possible. But that's a common mistake. Robo-warrior: Konnichiwa (Robo-warrior blasts Ron as he evades it) Ron: Hey, hey! I'm only the distraction!

    • (The robo-warrior is searching for Kim and Ron) Kim: Wade, we're up against a giant robot warrior... Wade: ...which used to be a robot assembly line! According to these schematics (the ones on Wade's computer screen), Nakasumi-san installed an override module (The giant robot appears behind them but they don't notice it) Rufus: Huh? Robo-warrior: Konnichiwa! (Kim and Ron notice the robot, and manages to evade it just before it was going to strike)

    • (Kim is holding on to a platform in Drakken's lair with one hand so Shego prepares to step on that hand) Shego: Ohh, sorry, no price for second place. (Kim grabs Shego's boot and knocks her down and climbs up on the platform) Kim: Ron! Lipgloss me! (Ron throws the box of "lipgloss" to Kim and she holds her breath and opens it) Shego: (whilst fainting) Ugh! That stinks! Ron and Rufus: (High fives) Boo-ya! (Kim jumps down) Kim: Nice work, boys! Now, where's... (Drakkens comes down, on a small, moving platform) Drakken: Ah, my teenaged foe, and the buffoon. Ron: Well, this buffoon knows your secret plan! You wanna steal Christmas! Drakken: Not even close. Kim: So this is a "take-over-the-world" thing, Ron! Drakken: (whilst the factory turns into a robot) Watch as this state of the art assembly line becomes... the ultimate Robo-Warrior! (A big screen says "Konnichiwa" as the robot grabs a tank and breaks it in two) Ron: (worried) That would be so cool if it wasn't gonna hurt us! (The robo-Warrior tries to blast them as they avoid it) Ron: (panicked) Don't freak out, Kim! Kim: I'm not! Ron: Well, that makes one of us!

    • (After being captured at Drakken's alpine lair) Kim: (irritated) I have never been captured that fast! This is almost as embarrassing as cheerleading practice... Ron! (We see that several henchmen are standing all around them) Ron: Embarrassing? Perhaps, but it did get us inside the bad man's lair. (Shego jumps in, standing on a platform above them) Shego: Don't mind me! I just wanna watch. (Kim jumps up to Shego as the henchmen prepare to attack Ron) Ron: Um... can one of you guys give us a boost? (They turn their shock sticks towards Ron) Ron: Kim! (Kim throws him what would seem to be lipgloss) Ron: Badical! Back up goons, 'cause I'm packing! (he shows the box with lipgloss) Henchman: Lipgloss? Ron: (worried) Uh.. yes, lipgloss. (The henchmen laugh) Kim: (fighting with Shego) Ron! Open it and hold your breath! (Ron does as Kim said, and the henchmen falls down on the floor, knocked out by the ooze of green gas that came out from the lipgloss box) Ron: What is this stuff? (At Wade's house) Wade's Mom: (holding socks that ooze green gas)Wade, I'd wish you'd stop taking you father's dirty socks! Wade: Mom! I need those! Wade's Mom: For what? Wade: They're integral to my top secret stink formula!

    • (Kim is looking at Drakken's alpine lair through high-tech binoculars) Kim: Talk to me, Wade. Wade: (through Kimmunicator) This is unquestionably Drakken's latest lair! I've hacked into the security system, but it's tight! (sighs) Can't shut down the sensor beams... but I could use the frequency so that you can see them. Kim: Please and thank you! (Wade folds his hands for a second, before tapping wildly on his keyboards as the sensor beams become visible. Meanwhile, Ron has gotten up and his snowboard is now sliding down with the broadside towards Kim) Ron: He-ey! This isn't so hard (falls down the hill) Wooah! Kim: (unaware of Ron falling straight towards her) So Ron, we can't touch the red beams. Ron? (Ron hits Kim, and they both fall down towards the sensor beams as they avoid hitting them, but Rufus slides down and hits one) Rufus: Uh-oh (An alarm goes off, and cameras appear around them and immediately recognize them then walls appear around their positions)

    Trivia (911)

    • A running joke in this episode is Ron thinking that Dr. Drakken's evil plan is to steal Christmas, a far cry from the truth.

    • When Kim is saying "I'll just spit it out", when sitting in the cantina, Josh passes by her. He was supposed to say hi, but no voice came. You can see that he was supposed to say hi, because Kim noticed he was there, even though she was looking the other way, and from the movements of his mouth.

    • During the intro song, "Call Me, Beep Me," watch the blonde cheerleader on the right. When she stops and kneels her eyes are blue. Yet when she stands up to pose her eyes turn brown.

    • Whenever Mr. Dr. Possible mentions Dr. Drakken, he pronounces the name "Drocken."

    • For a moment, when Ron's holding Rufus in Heinrich's snow-mobile thing, his hands are flesh-colored, when he should be wearing gloves.

    • When Ron is pinned by the forklift, his shirt is a light gray rather than black.

    • When Kim punches out the camera on the back of Drakken's robot, the hand still in the suction cup is glove-less.

    • When Ron is hanging upside down when the Ultimate Robot Warrior grabs him, Rufus falls out of his pocket. After Kim rescues Rufus, she puts him in her pocket. But when Kim rocket skates to Ron's rescue as the Robot is falling, Rufus is back with Ron.

    • A Wrinkle In Time: The family dynamic of the Possible family is almost identical to the family dynamic of the Murry Family in the Wrinkle in Time series.

    • Dr. Drakken: (pins Ron to wall using forklift) While in the video game factory in Japan, Drakken pins Ron to a wall with a forklift. The same thing happened to the protagonist of a Japanese serial/TV movie called Fugitive Alien.

    • Game System: Z-boy The Z-boy game system's name is obviously a play off Nintendo's smash hit, Game Boy, in addition to Microsoft's Xbox. However, the system looks like the old Sega Genesis. Also, the Z-boy cartoon looks an awful lot like Pac-Man.

    • Character: Britina "Britina" is a combination of Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, two famous real-life pop stars.

    • Ron: Drakken's gonna steal Christmas! This is a reference to the popular children's book/movie, How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The book was written by Dr. Seuss, and of course, the movie was inspired by the work.

    • Shego: Flaring Hands Shego's hand trick is very similar to the special talent of Liz Sherman, in the comic book, now movie, Hellboy.

    • Ron: Flying kick now! As Ron tries (and fails) to kick Drakken's "ultimate robo-warrior," he yells "Flying kick now!," a reference to animes such as Dragon Ball Z.

    • Scooby Doo:

      The scene in which Kim and Mr. Barkin walk by the camera followed by Gill after they pass off screen is the exact same of shot used in nearly every episode of Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! The lighting of the scene and overall design of Gill even make the scene appear like the classic TV show.
