    We get new fine villian - Camille Leon. At the same time, she's obvious parody of some celebrity. It's good to see that cartoon delivers some interesting reality references. Sadly, the main part of episode is messed up by bottom-of-barrel minor characters. Both Mc Honey and Brittina appeared earlier - and proved themselves as truly boring minors. What's the sense in using them ,then ? I guess creators needed celebrities for the plot - and recycled the old ones.

    The worst thing is once again action focuses on real menace of the show - tweebs. Once decent minor characters, accepted in team are really as annoying and predictible, that you'll had enough of them after this episode.



    It could have been a really good episode.moreless

  • I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this episode, especially considering that the entire plot was an instant giveaway, but the humor, the idea, and the odd bit of K/R attention really gave it a good feel.moreless

    Well, the first episode has come and gone, and, even though the enigmatically mixed up airing order has me a bit miffed, I still find myself captivated by this new season, right down to the redone opening theme (something I forgot to comment on in my ‘Ill Suited’ review, so I’ll state now that I love the new footage). Anyway, like I said, this episode went a long way in view of the total lack of a surprise ending. Anyone with access to a Kim Possible-related website, or with more than three individual brain cells could’ve put together that ‘Camille Leon’ sounded surprisingly like a certain camouflaging reptile that (in other cartoon series) has also been a famous alias for shape-shifting foes…Chameleon, I mean, not Camille. I haven’t heard too many foes by that name before. However, this fact was easy to ignore when it became obvious, even to the good guys, that Camille had something to do with the celebrity robberies, and that it gave them an excuse to whale on her less than charming personality. ‘Don’t you know who I am?’

    ‘Lady, the question is: Do you know who you are?’



    I won’t delve too far into the Camille plot, since the last two paragraphs have pretty much covered that, so I’ll delve into the B-plot:



    Jim and Tim Possible. As High School Freshmen.

    In Kim and Ron’s High School. ‘NOOOOOOOO!’



    (NOTE: This seems a lot scarier if you actually have younger brothers that age, and I do, so I was scared…)



    For any of you who don’t know, more than just the Tweebs’ height and clothes have changed this season, as their former voice actor, 19 year-old Shaun Fleming, has been replaced now by 13 year old Spencer Fox (currently most famous for playing Dash from ‘The Incredibles’). With this change has come a certain extent of a snotty attitude on both of the boys’ parts, however, I must admit that I like the change, and hey, kid brothers are supposed to be snotty, right? Now Kim finds that she not only has to put up with the Tweebs at school, where they tend to dispense a little too much info pertaining to their big sister, but on her missions as well (or at least this mission), as they volunteer their ‘services’ in finding this episode’s baddie, which includes figuring Camille’s whole motive and back-story out before Kim’s even considered her a suspect. I had never heard of Ashley Tisdale before this, as I’ve never been a big fan of Disney sitcoms, but I quickly came to like her voice; she pulled off the shallow, stuck-up, Rich Daddy’s girl very well, though I guess the ‘Daddy’s girl’ part should be retracted if he decided to disinherit her…can’t imagine why. Surprisingly, I came to like Camille’s character; maybe because the rich girls in cartoons are usually just background and B-characters, and this accelerated those same sort of characters into a moderately effective villainess. But then again, maybe I just find her appealing for some reason, I don’t know. It actually might’ve been a bit more suspenseful if Camille actually hadn’t been behind the crimes and her name and activities had just been a bunch of red herring clues, but then, it would’ve meant sacrificing a perfectly interesting villain, so-No! No, nothing. Forget I said anything…



    So overall, it was a good episode with a see-through plot, but in can hardly be held against the episode because you realize that it didn’t need a thick plot to be enjoyable. It just needed some sibling rivalries, some K/R enthusiasm, a spoiled shape-shifting heiress and a joke involving snouts as a mystery meat ingredient.



    But just one question, about Rufus and Debutante:



    Can you imagine the children? Seriously?moreless
  • A very good episode from the creators of Kim Possible

    8.7
    A very good episode from the creators of Kim Possible

    Kim gets serious issues when the tweebs are skipped ahead to High School, while she has to deal with celebrities executing several thefts.

    The tweebs later come up with their own theory about the person behind the thefts is a shape shifter, while Kim has to be a model to protect a very valuable necklace.

    It is here that she discovers that the tweebs were right. It appears that Camille Leon is behind the thefts.



    Who is Camille Leon? She is an all-new shape-shifting villainess voiced by Ashley Tisdale.

    She is shallow and ditzy, but a skilled actress, and was the heir to a cat food fortune until recently, when her father for unknown reasons disinherited her and she turned to a life of crime.

    Just recently she also underwent a radical surgical technique called nanomorphing, giving her the ability to shape shift, something she used to frame other celebrities for various thefts.



    Ashley Tisdale did an excellent job as the voice actor for Camille Leon, and I (and probably many others) look forward to see if she can do the job just as good in the episode “Fashion Victim”.



    The tweebs are, to the dismay of some people, very featured in this episode, even figuring out who the villainess is, and how she committed her crimes to frame others, something that Kim didn't.

    The fact that the tweebs has been granted much more airtime in this episode, and in Season 4 overall, is something that irritate some people and seems appealing to others, while someone doesn’t really care about them.



    And I’m sure some people didn’t take their eyes of their TV or whatever they were watching the episode on when Kim entered the catwalk as a model with that beautiful dress. I know I didn’t.

    And when Ron said that Kim was beautiful, I just sat there saying something like “Awwww...” I’m sure many others did as well.



    And there is Camille’s hairless… eh… [Some guy:] "Cat! It’s called a cat!"

    Oh, yes, right! It’s called a cat. Anyways, it was freaky. Very freaky. And its name was Debutante.

    It seemed to show some romantic interest in Rufus, a fellow hairless animal, but he's not freaky at all.

    That was just sick and wrong on so many levels.



    Well, that's one negative thing, and many positive...

    It was truly a great episode from Disney.moreless
  • Two much focus on the TWEEBS!!! Like to see a new villainess introduced, but please stop relying on those irritating one-dimensional little brother characters. Why not just run our hands through a meat-grinder instead. It would serve the same end.moreless

    1.2
    Having a new villain introduced was an interesting twist. Shows get stale when the same characters are trawled out over and over again. But, unfortunately, those annoying tweebs destroyed this episode for me. I find them so irritating that I shall not watch any portions of episodes with them in it. Their characters are so unbelievable, they completely invalidate all that is good about this show. Why not just have a utility belt with a special ray gun that solves all of your problems? The Jim and Tim characters are entirely one-dimensional. So, overall, like writing in new villains, hate the tweebs.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (10)

    • Jim and Tim have a new look for this season. They are now taller, and Tim wears a red shirt instead of a red version of Jim's jacket.

    • When Camille Leon arrives at the fashion show, a few of the background characters are Drakken's Henchmen.

    • When the tweebs are finished with statisics pop quiz and they say "Got it Mr. Barkin," Kim turns around and is wearing the green shirt from the
      beginning of the episode shirt then she had and then it changed back to her pink shirt.

    • In Ron Millionaire, the 200 karat diamond is mentioned to be the largest in existence, but the elevator at the Hollywood mall had a 500 karat diamond.

    • When Jim and Tim first suggest that Kim might be dealing with a shape-shifter, we see that the cafeteria is just down the hall from Kim's locker. Usually it's a hall that curves to the right

    • Since, according to production codes, this episode technically occurs after Car Alarm, Wade shouldn't have had trouble getting a ride to the Hollywood mall because Kim and Ron have her car.

    • Camille Leon disguises herself as MC Honey when she steals the necklace from Kim, and then she becomes Britina when she runs off, but MC Honey was already in jail for "jacking the goodie-bags", and Britina was in jail for stealing money out of a safe.

    • The first time Kim tells Jim and Tim about a "height limit," her voice sounds briefly like it did when she was under Drakken's mind control in The Twin Factor, but this is very close to her normal voice anyways.

    • The background characters at the fashion show are the same as the ones at the High School. Same outfits, too.

    • When we see a women get her credit checked to go into Country Club Banana, the man who checked her says, "Welcome to Country Club Banana." However, his lips never move.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (6)

    • Spider Man:

      Camille is a refrence to Chameleon from Spider Man, not only because of the name, but they both have the same power.

    • Trading Spaces:

      The episode's title, "Trading Faces" is a play off the TV show Trading Spaces.

    • Holston Twins:

      This is an obvious play on the real-life Olsen Twins. They even look exactly the same.

    • Paris Hilton:

      Camille Leon is a parody of Paris Hilton. She's an heiress to an impossibly large fortune, she's stuck up and ditzy, and she carries her pet in her purse. Though Paris has a Chihuaua, whereas Camille has a hairless cat.

    • Camille Leon:

      Ashley Tisdale's character, Camille Leon, is a play off of "chameleon." Similar to Camille, a chameleon is able to change its skin color depending on its surroundings.

    • X-Men:

      Camille's power is like that of the character Mystique from X-Men, except hers was caused by mutation, and Camille's is through genetic experimentation.
