    Its very edgy and too mature for kids to see her sitting with her legs crossed in a Bikini.

    its edgy because of her bear legs.

    Any show that references "Fight Club" in its Season 4 premiere is not just for kids. Hell, in "The Golden Years" they referenced "Shaft." "Shaft!"

    A lot of the humor on the show is designed to go over the kids' heads while allowing adults to enjoy the pleasure of catching all the references. It's family entertainment.

    And that's not the most risque the show's gotten. I remember one scene in "Homecoming Upset" where Ron's holding a fire hose when Bonnie suddenly comes up behind him and hugs him. Innocent, right? Except for the fact that the fire hose went off at that exact moment (drenching Kim, no less). How they slipped that past the censors I'll never know.

    Also, "bear legs?" I think you meant bare legs, my friend. One more reason to love Shego.

    Well at least her legs WERE crossed. And beeftony's right. About everything. That's one of the things I love about Disney... and especially Kim Possible.

    That's exactly my point! And even if it *were* edgy or explicit... so what? I guess I'm just tired of people who think that children will get traumatized by EVERYTHING! There are far more important things to worry about. Anybody who think an animated character's position in a tv show is harming kids, needs to get their heads examined.

    Uh, Disney has been doing this for years and years, only they are now more open to displaying it for people to see, since the new generation of kids is far more sexualized...

    Pefect example is The Emperor's New School:

    Kuzco: Ooh, if you worked here...

    *Pictures Malina in a nurse's outfit, giving him food*

    Malina: Kuzco! Where you dreaming of me in some hottie waitresse's outfit?

    Kuzco: No, I was dreaming of you in a hottie nurses outfit...

    Malina: That doesn't even make sense!

    Kuzco: Eh, I like what I like...

    The reason its not good for Shego to sit like that because you can see a little of her butt that she is sitting in an edgy way. look down at the bottom of her crossed legs and you will see it looking butt like.

    Disney does do a good job of putting in things teens and adults get. But I think this was just an inking error.

    MisterMatthews Disney should make an edited version with shego's crossed legs are covered with a blanket. now that will make it un edgy looking.

    Why should they do that? A few seconds of nearly seeing a small portion of her behind is not really bad. Also, if kids who it is supposedly bad for watch that scene, chances are that they focus on what's actually going on instead of her behind

    Ugh...strongar, are you the same annoying person who compalined about the costumes on Justice Leagues.

    As for your comment: Wow...bare legs. People see bare legs all the time. And it's at the beach. What would you expect? As for crossing legs, I'm a girl, and I say it's comfortable. I don't cross my legs to be sexual, I do it because I find it comfortable at times.
