    Inspector Gadget

    Follow
    (ended 1986)
    Inspector Gadget was a cartoon parody of the 1960's television spy parody, Get Smart. Don Adams played the leads in both shows. There are similarities between the two shows. Both agents only had lots of gadgets or devices that they never could use correctly. Both worked for a chief that they invariably infuriated. And of course, both Gadget and Smart were lovable idiots who always won in the end, usually by accident or by someone else's help. Created by DIC Entertainment, this show was voiced in Canada and Los Angeles, drawn in Korea, edited in Los Angeles and distributed by DIC International. First produced as a 1/2 hour pilot in 1983, it was picked up and produced until 1986 for TV. Years later, Inspector Gadget is seen in 55 countries in 24 languages. Spinoffs: Gadget Boy and Heather, Gadget Boy's Adventures in History, Inspector Gadget's Field Trip and Gadget and the Gadgetinis. A liveaction theatrical movie based on the cartoon was released in 1999, as well as a liveaction direct-to-video sequel in 2003.moreless

    Codename: Kids Next Door

    Codename: Kids Next Door

    Follow
    Cartoon Network (ended 2008)
    The world is in danger! Only five ten-year-old kids and 1 who loves show are our only hope! Problem: Adults have become tyrants over kids. Solution: five kids decide to change that for themselves and the world. Join these five kids and 1 lover of knd (known by Numbuh 1, Numbuh 2, and so on) as they battle evil ranting (yet determined) grown-ups, candy pirates, their arch Nemesis, the Delightful Children from Down the Lane, their Father, a man of fiery powers and that was once known as "Mr. Wigglestines" and his many minions (such as Numbuh 5's older sister, Cree and ex-operative Numbuh 274, Chad). But they also have to deal with havoc amongst themselves... Characters: Numbuh 1 (Nigel Uno): Numbuh 1 is the bold leader of the group, hands down. With a fear of bugs and hate for the beach, he still can be the ultimate leader (he does have a girlfriend, and skill of thinking up great tactics and defense) and spare some time for an ice cream! He is the second youngest of the Kids Next Door. Numbuh 2 (Hoagie Pennywhistle Gilligan Jr.): With a skilled mind and knowledge of a buhzillion, Numbuh 2 is definitely the master in the building department. Also, with puns and jokes like that, what's not to love? He is the third oldest/youngest (In the middle) of the Kids Next Door. Numbuh 3 (Kuki Sanban): Hugs and Rainbow Monkeys are just as sweet as Numbuh 3 herself! Known as "The Flirt", this Asian does seem to hit the soft spot of most. However, she may be out-of-it at times, but when you mess with something she loves, you have to pay the price with a she-devil. She is the youngest of the Kids Next Door. Numbuh 4 (Wallabee "Wally" Beatles): Yes, his nickname ("The Tough Guy") does serve Numbuh 4 well. He sure has a knack for letting his actions speak, therefore making it easy as to what he's about to do. Though, underneath the hard shell, he has that soft spot (though doesn't show it) for people he cares for most. And some would say the person really up there is a certain happy girl. He is the second oldest of the Kids Next Door. Numbuh 5 (Abigail "Abby" Lincoln): Numbuh 5 would be put in a different crowd from the rest... This laid back girl always keeps her cool, yet sometimes can get a little impatient. All else aside, she is probably the guardian angel of the group, guiding the others, while not getting in the way of everyone's jobs. She is the oldest of the Kids Next Door. Numbuh 86 (Fanny Fulbright): Head of Decommissioning, defeat teenagers and adults, boss some kids around, this girl could do it all. Numbuh 86 is sure not only hardcore, but like Numbuh 4, soft on the inside. She may have a love for Rainbow Monkeys and thinks Numbuh 4 is pretty cute, but don't let that get to you. No matter what, she'll do her duties as decommissioning teens. Lizzie Devine: Lizzie is the infamous girlfriend of Numbuh 1, her Nigie. She was annoying at first, but the team has realized it could be much worse. Lizzie is the over-protetive type of her boyfriend and sometimes, jealous, but, she always is there to help Numbuh 1, even if she has to crash a couple of ships. Tommy Gilligan: Tommy looks up to his brother, Numbuh 2, and wants to be just like him. Of course, his love for his brother matches the amount of how much he annoys everyone... On the upper hand, he would make an excellent operative! If he can, that is... After a battle, he had to sacrifice his own membuhship to defeat the adults. Mushi Sanban: This little girl is almost exactly like her older sister, Numbuh 3. With the cuteness of a bummillion, she can just as easily get guys as her sister, "stealing" her "man", King Sandy. The Delightful Children From Down The Lane: The Delightful Children From Down The Lane are the KND's arch nemisesses. Working for their Father (see below) they are raised (or made) to give and serve the adults. But most kids, however, think they're creepy, for they talk and walk, and do just about everything as one. Father: Probably the most evil guy on the earth to attack the KND. Father is a conniving and scheming grown-up who happens to be the father of the DCFDTL (the Delightfuls'). He is bent on destroying the KND for interrupting his plans on adults ruling the world. However, he is no match for the KND! Cree Lincoln: Numbuh 5's sister, ex-operative Numbuh 11 (the best of her time), and one of Father's top worker is all Cree. She has it all, skills, knowledge, and a very suductive kiss, which Hank (who is Numbuh 2, teenagerized) has experienced first hand, she is an amazing teenager. But that's just it.. she's a teenager, working with the other side. Chad: Like Cree, Chad is an ex-operative (Numbuh 274, who, also, was the best), and he is also working with Father. He, too, has the skills, and the perfect kid--now teen--(in an adult's eyes), but he gets made fun of once in a while... for wearing a bra, which is really BRA (Battle Ready Armor) that can help him beat up any one and change into any one. Numbuh 362 (Unknown real name): She's the girl with the class and everything. Highest ranking, she is like president of the KND. And of course, she is one chick that Numbuh 86 admires. Of course, she tends to be rather annoyed with 86 easily. The Kid: Not much is known about this guy, but he sure makes Numbuh 2 want to beat him at everything, making him...basically, Numbuh 2's rival (even if he had to work with him). It also seems he likes to make other kids want to rival him, because he sure has Numbuh 4 on a knot for having a "fling" with Numbuh 3... Various Villians: Here's where you could start snoring because a long list of people ((Cough-Adults-Cough)) are coming your way! The list includes Mr. Boss (sort of the "Villian Leader", other than Father), The Toilenator (who just tries too hard and yet gets nothing), Sticky Beard (sort of Numbuh 5's rival, due to the candy-stash), The Cat Lady (self-explanatory), The Common Cold, Count Spankulot, and a whole lot more! They just keep on comin'! DNK: The Destructively Nefarious Kids. They're totally the opposite of the KND! Living in the opposite world (which entrance is through Numbuh 4's pool), everything and everyone in there is quite opposite of the KND's world. All the DNK are known as the "negatives" (i.e. Negative Numbuh 1, Negative Numbuh 2, etc.), and their names backwards. Luckily, by the end of the KND's journey to their world, they agreed to a truce that resolved their answers. Although, it makes you wonder if there would be more of the DNK... Rainbow Monkeys: Yes, they may not be characters, but are very important to the KND in many ways. Every girl couldn't live without them, and Numbuh 3 certainly wouldn't have her stuffed-animal filled room. Also, they are just as real as the KND themselves, but only a certain Asian girl would know. The Hamsters: The KND wouldn't, and couldn't sustain themselves with the power from the hamsters! They provide energy (like electricity) and can help with moving big things.moreless

    Nearly two hundred years have passed since humanity departed from the Earth to start new lives in space colonies. The United Earth Sphere Alliance, who had abolished all the nations of the world and had taken control of the planet is now threatening to extend that control over the independent space colonies. Within the Alliance, a special group known as the Organization of the Zodiac(OZ) which is responsible for the Alliance's actions, aims to take center stage. Unwilling to yield to the Alliance, the colonies send 5 young men in Mobile Suits known as Gundams to destroy OZ and preserve the colonies' independence. Gundam Wing is an anime created in 1995 (formally known as 'New Mobile Report Gundam Wing'). Its parent series, Mobile Suit Gundam (AU), had premiered in 1979, marking the beginning of a successful Gundam Era. Two years after the release of forty-nine episodes, Gundam Wing was a venture to attract a new generation of cartoon-watchers. The show's initial airing in the United States is accredited to Cartoon Network's Toonami schedule block. "Generations ago, with a great dream for the future... humankind departed from planet Earth, seeking a life on space colonies. But as time went by, the United Earth Sphere Alliance brought the colonies under its control... one after another using its overwhelming military power in the name of peace and justice. After Colony, Year 195... The beginning of Operation Meteor... It was a secret operation by a few colonies which tried to stand against the Alliance. The operation was to secretly smuggle specially camouflaged combat weapons onto the earth. However, the operation had been detected by Alliance leaders..."moreless

    TELETOON (ended 2010)
    6TEEN is an animated situation comedy for teens and tweens alike set entirely in a gigantic shopping mall! It's minimum wages and maximum laughs as we follow our ensemble cast of six sixteen-year-old friends trying to make it through their first part-time jobs and life as a teen. 6TEEN is about the important stuff – firsts (and all the ones that follow). First crushes, first jobs, first bank accounts and most importantly, that first taste of freedom… of course, not all firsts are positive. By the end of the first episode, Nikki finds herself stuck (in what she considers a sick twist of fate) working at The Khaki Barn, a store that she wouldn't be caught dead shopping in. Jen's scored her dream job at a sports shop, but her meat head ex-gym coach boss, Coach Halder, keeps throwing her in the penalty box for messing up. Jonesy manages to get his butt fired from his new job (and in every episode hereafter), Wyatt's hopelessly in love with his older co-worker, and Caitlin is forced to endure the daily humiliation of working in the lowest store in the mall's hierarchy of cool – The Big Squeeze, a giant lemon. No "most embarrassing moment" in these teens' lives will be left unturned, and at times it can seem like there's an evil boss, awful customer or "frienemy" around every corner. But through it all, our group of six best friends learn to lean on one another. From stumbling through relationships to dealing with hideous uniforms, the larger-than-life mall provides our characters with the perfect venue to spread their wings - and totally crash and burn trying. Theme Song: Life begins after school, That's when we bend all the rules. Time to hang with all my friends. We like to be together, In a place where we belong! I'm sixteen, starting to find my way. Got a new job, gonna start at the mall today. Thank God I'm on my own for the first time. I'm sixteen, life is sweet, When your growing up so fast. Gotta make the good times last! I'm sixteen, sixteen. Gotta make the good times last! Characters 'Jonsey' Garcia Jonsey's interests in life can be summed up in two words: hockey and chicks. He's a high school hockey star and your typical party-obsessed jock. He's the popular, good looking guy who gets invited to all the parties and who's probably going to peak in high school...unless he makes it into the NHL of course. Clutch under pressure, always willing to go for it, convinced it'll all work out okay. He's hilarious, outspoken, and totally confident that he's the man. Jonsey is unabashedly male and relentlessly girl-crazy...and no matter how bad things are or how hard he's shot down, he always maintains "the attitude". He is always coming up with new schemes - but they usually end up getting the group in trouble. He teases the guys for being wimps and is protective of the girls. Except for Nikki. Jonsey and Nikki love to spar (probably why they're soo great together). Jonsey likes chicks, parties, hockey, hot chicks, getting stuff free, chicks, taking chances, and hockey bunnies (chicks). He dislikes wimps, working at stores that chicks don't shop at, and losing games. He hopes to get a hockey scholarship - college has lots of college chicks...and dorm rooms. Heh heh. Then to play in the NHL. More chicks. Jonsey gets fired from a new job in every episode...let's just say he's not the most responsible cat in town. Note: From the show we learn that Jonsey has 2 younger brothers and that his parents are divorced. Also noted is that his Dad is newly married to Jen's Mom, and he now has a new baby sister!! Jen Masterson Jen is a hip, hot, tomboy who can beat almost any guy in almost any sport and is bound and determined to become a future Olympic champion. She's kind and fun with an edge, but her strongest personality trait is definitely her determination. Jen's mouth is often faster than her brain and she tends to blurt out the exact wrong thing at precisely the worst time. Jen is do-er, the go-getter, and an instigator. She is protective of all her friends but can be bossy when she gets on one of her "missions". While she's got the plans, Jonsey's got the scams...and both of them end up getting the group in just as much trouble. Jen's experience in sports makes her a natural born leader and coach, and she will often offer tips to Caitlin and the boys...even when they don't ask for her help. Jen likes teamwork, snowboarding, girls who rock at sports, taking dares and boy bands. She dislikes boys who think they're better than girls (at anything), stereotypes, cheerleaders, talking instead of doing. She's in constant cell phone contact with all her friends and likes to know everything that's happening as it's happening. She is known to ditch customers mid-sale to answer the phone. Jen's got boys following her around like drooling puppies but barely even notices. When she does go after a guy, she usually picks the wrong one. Jen works at the Penalty Box and she is desperate to make sure no one gets fired so she isn't stuck working there alone. Note: From the show we learn that Jen has 1 older sister and her Mom is newly married to Jonesy's Dad, plus she now has a new baby sister!! Nikki Wong Nikki is questioning and defiant with a punk rock edge, but beneath her tough exterior, Nikki isn't as tough as she seems. She's not cynical – just a "realist". A total original, Nikki loves to take clothes and custom-rip-them to make them her own and can't stand fashion sheep. Her deadpan sarcasm files right over the heads of her co-workers, who she's aptly named "The Clones". Nikki hates everything about mass consumerism, so she considers it a sick twist of fate that she's stuck working at The Khaki Barn, the most generic "don't think for yourself" store in the mall. In her words, "The Khaki Barn represents everything that is wrong with the world today." Unfortunately, The Khaki Barn was the only store that would take her. You could say she has a bad attitude when it comes to authority. She wouldn't be caught dead wearing anything The Khaki Barn sells, and DON'T expect her to be cheerful. Nikki doesn't take pop culture at face value and is not easily sucked into trends, which makes it such a funny reveal when we discover her closet love for the Boy Band, Dawg Toy. Her goal is to graduate, travel for a year, the settle down somewhere cool and break into the music industry as a A&R executive. Something far away from a suburban mall. For now, the mall provides her with ample targets for her razor-sharp wit and observations. Nikki's a "reality check" for her friends. She brings the loftier ones down to earth and puts the obnoxious ones in their place… but in a good way. She's always up for a good prank and likes to tease her friends good-naturedly. Nikki thinks Jonsey's an "idiot" but loves him anyway, and truly admires Wyatt's originality. Caitlin Cooke Sweet and optimistic - and TOTALLY used to getting her way, Caitlin gets good grades but isn't very street smart yet. Caitlin is a little sheltered and naive when it comes to things like dating, cruel intentions, and the fact that working at the mall isn't just one big social gathering. ("You mean I have to mop the floors? I so did not sign up for this.") She's vain but not conceited and is always doing sweet things for her friends. Even though she's spoiled, you can't help but love her. She can surprise you with her determination when she sets her mind to something, be it finding a new pair of pink clogs or taking Wyatt on a dating safari to show him how to act like a "mature male." Caitlin is girlie to the core and totally boy-crazy - unfortunately, every time a cute guy even LOOKS at her she does something incredibly embarrassing like walking into a wall. The ever hopeful cheerleader, Caitlin assumes things will work out because up until now, they always have. She elicits the group's protective instincts and loves to give dating advice. Caitlin is a new addition to the already-tight group of five. The only reason she's working at the mall instead of shopping here is because she maxed out her dad's credit card on a shopping spree and he, "like, totally freaked." In an effort to teach Caitlin the value of money, her parents insisted that she get a part-time job. So now she works at The Big Squeeze, which is brutal, but Caitlin figures if she can survive the humiliation of working in a giant lemon, she can probably survive anything. Caitlin hates her uniform so much that she never leaves the lemon with it on, doing a Superman-style quick change into her street clothes every time she leaves work. Caitlin is an only child from a family of two doctors and is the apple of her parents' eyes. She strives to prove herself to her parents and works off her credit card bill, yet stays on the job. It's not that bad... she's even gotten used to using the mop. But she STILL HATES THE HAT! Wyatt Williams Wyatt is an old soul. He sees house parties and making out in the movie theater as strictly "for the cretins." He's into more cultural endeavors: a new jazz band, spiritual awareness, a great documentary about gun control...he's very well read, mellow, and a great foil for Jonesy's adolescent hijinks. Wyatt has certain quirks that don't fit into the typical high school scene, but he does have one ace in the hole: he plays acoustic guitar and can play any song on request. Girls love guys who can play guitar and sing. Wyatt has a dry sense of humor that Nikki in particular appreciates. He's more intelligent and well read than his pals. The "smart" one who SHOULD be the first one to object to Jonesy's scams, Wyatt is easily talked into anything Jonesy proposes because deep down he admires Jonesy's confidence and strength. He knows he should stop taking Jonesy's advice on girls - but he can't help himself. Wyatt's love choices, from Serena to Marlowe, are often girls with whom (as Jonesy often puts it) he "hasn't got a chance with". Wyatt often writes down his observations with the goal of one day writing a book. His job is never high on the hierarchy of cool. Yet he doesn't mind being different or uncool. Deep down he knows that in a few years, when he's in college, he'll be the man. You'll find him playing his guitar in smoky coffee houses to bookish hot girls in big sweaters and glasses and finally, he'll be the cool one. It just won't be tomorrow, that's all - but he can wait. Jude Lizowski Jude is into living life large. If it's extreme, he's done it - or it's on his list. He has a pure, almost childlike outlook and seems to be in his own world, but has a totally solid inner logic that can make the others stop in their tracks and listen. Every once in a while, he comes up with the perfect solution to their problems. He's always positive and mellow, and his attitude is contagious. He's that perfect combination of cool, sweet, and mysteriously confident. Jude's pretty restless and often checks out of conversations because he's bored. You might say he's a bit of a space case or a little hyper-active (he was a nightmare to keep track of in kindergarten). Floating on his own cloud, riding his own melt, the only things he takes seriously are his friends and skateboarding. Jude thinks outside the box - and at times, outside the entire room. Take the time he decided to spread his girlfriend net a little farther and stop limiting himself, so he began dating a computer programmed easy chair with a female voice that he named "Betty." She's easy going, listens to him, and gives great massages - even his friends have to admit that it's hard to argue with that logic. He's the confidant - the one everyone trusts with their secrets...though ironically, Jude is REALLY bad at keeping secrets. The girls often come to him for advice about guys (because their other choices, Wyatt and Jonesy, are both hopeless). He is naturally laid back and everything is cool. Doesn't like it when people harsh on his mellow. Jude often ends up being his own boss (except at Underground and with the Zamboni) which is "totally sweeEET!! I can set my own hours!!"moreless

    Live action bumpers featuring Bill Cosby were set around animated episodes of Fat Albert and The Cosby Kids, a series about a group of urban adolescents growing up in a Philadelphia neighborhood. The show was based on Cosby's '60s stand up comedy monologues about his childhood. The episodes revolved around the daily life lessons learned by Albert and his friends. Topics ranged from social issues to personal introspection and were blended with humor and music. Among the many great characters that inhabited Fat Albert's world were Rudy, Mushmouth, Donald, Bill, Weird Harold and Russell. In 1979 the show was re-titled The New Fat Albert Show and featured a new segment called The Brown Hornet, a send-up of superhero cartoons starring a larger-than-life African-American crime fighter in outer space. In 1984, the show was syndicated and renamed The Adventures of Fat Albert and the Cosby kids. It ended the same year. Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids enjoyed one of the longest careers in Saturday morning cartoon history. There are plans to release the whole series on DVD over the course of 2005.

    Courage the Cowardly Dog was an abandoned dog and was found by his owner Muriel who lives in the middle of Nowhere, Kansas with her husband Eustace Bagge. Eustace is a failed farmer who farms no more. His most prized object is his old truck. He is usually watching his old black and white televison and is always asking for his meal. He is crazy about his red chair. Muriel loves to sit in her rocking chair watch her favorite show (not mentioned what it's called), cook, play her sitar, and enjoy talking with Courage. Eustace, on the other hand, dislikes Courage. He scares him with a mask. Courage is a dog almost afraid of everything and with the help of his computer he battles the villians and saves himself and his owners. They don't have any neighbors that live next door. Katz is the most common villian that is seen on the show, he thinks up wise traps to lure people into their doom. The bickering of Eustace, the old customs of Muriel, the action of the villians, and the humor of Courage make it a great show!moreless
