    The WB (ended 2000)
    "Superman" was an animated series that premiered on September 6, 1996. Created to follow the success of "Batman: The Animated Series," and based on the popular Superman comics created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the cartoon series focused on the adventures of Superman, an incredibly powerful crime fighter from the planet Krypton, who defends Metropolis from a variety of supercriminals that include Lex Luthor, Brainiac, Metallo, The Parasite, Livewire, The Toyman, Mr. Mxyzptlk, Bizarro, Darkseid, Lobo, Jax-Ur, and Mala. Superman's secret identity is that of Clark Kent, a mild-mannered reporter for the newspaper "The Daily Planet". There he worked with fellow reporter Lois Lane and photographer Jimmy Olsen.

    The series opened with an hour and a half long special that featured the exploits of Superman's Kryptonian father, Jor-El, who was attempting to save their planet from a world-wide catastrophe which the planet's artificial intelligence system, Brainiac, was trying to cover up, and continued through Superman's first public appearance in Metropolis. In later seasons, the show featured guest appearances by a variety of other famous comic book heroes including Supergirl, Batman, Robin, The Green Lantern, The Flash, Aquaman, Dr. Fate, Steel, and The New Gods. In 1997, episodes of "Superman" were broadcast alongside episodes of "The New Batman Adventures" and reruns of "Batman: the Animated Series" under the title "The New Batman/Superman Adventures".moreless

    The WB (ended 2005)
    ¡Mucha Lucha! is an over-the-top comedy-adventure about honor, family, tradition... and donuts. The series explores the Latino cultural phenomenon known as "Lucha Libre." In a world where no one removes their colorful mask ever and success depends on having a "signature move," three mascaritas - Rikochet, Buena Girl and The Flea - study and live the "Code of Masked Wrestling" and go to school at the Formost World-Renowned International School of Lucha. This bold comedy combines irreverent humor and visually dynamic fantasy-action in two fast-paced 11-minute episodes and is the first-ever all-flash animated series on broadcast television. Character Bios: Rikochet - The main Luchador of the show, Rikochet wants to be the school's greatest Luchador ever! He's master of the "Pulverzing Pinball" attack, as well as the "Spinning Top" and other attacks. Buena Girl - Buena Girl's knowledge of the Code of Masked Wrestling is surpassed by none, giving her an edge in matches. Her special attack is "The Buena Bulldozer of Truth", and she stands for all things Buena. The Flea - The Flea, Buena Girl, and Rikochet are like the three amigos, literally! But they call themselves the Three Mascaritas! The Flea is kind of the nasty one, the only things that can beat him are showers, killer masked toilets, and good hygiene! The Flea also refers to himself in the third-person perspective. Snow Pea - Snow Pea is the gentle, baby like, mascarita of the school. He doesn't appear to like violence, and he pretty much loses every fight he gets himself into. His signature move is called: "The Cuddly Hug of Friendship"! His signature move is quite strangely, only a hug. He is very small and he wears a green pea pod costume, and the only thing that Snow Pea knows how to say is his own name! Cindy Slam - She is a violent little mascarita who hates just about everything and can get very angry, very easily. Her attitude is just about as scary as her signature move: "The Cindy Slammer"! When she uses her signature move her hands turn into giant brick walls that can crush just about anything. It is highly recommended that you do not anger her. If you leave her alone, then you might just be spared the pain of her fury. Masked Dog - Masked Dog is just about the coolest dog you'll ever meet. Everyone knows him, and everyone loves him. His signature move is called: "Knocking Paws". It is basicly just a super cool handshake. Masked Dog is always there at his master's side when Rickochet needs him the most. Kids' WB!

    In this half-hour series, affectionately nicknamed JKX, actor/comedian Jamie Kennedy combines hidden-camera pranks with sketch comedy to see how everyday people-- and some celebrities-- behave in unusual situations. Jamie appears in a wide variety of disguises, getting his "marks" involved in an equally wide variety of bizarre predicaments. When a joke has run its course, Jamie delivers the show's immortal tag line: YOU'VE BEEN X-ED! Each skit is presented in front of an audience, either in-studio or on location, and sometimes Jamie brings his marks on as special guests after presenting a segment. After three seasons, JKX ended its original run in the spring of 2004. The entire series is available on DVD, with each season having its own box set. I don't have many episode reviews up right now, but I am planning to write more in the coming weeks. Now that I no longer have a co-editor for season three, I will be also revising (or more appropriately, redoing) the entries for the last several episodes of the series. DISCLAIMER: I am not affiliated with the show, its cast, or the WB network. I am just a fan who wanted to do a good episode guide for this truly underappreciated series. I don't know whether Jamie or anyone else connected to the show reads this guide or the Viewer Comments. That said, I hope you enjoy the guide and have as much fun reading it as I have editing it.

    The WB (ended 2003)
    Martial arts star Russell Wong (Romeo Must Die) stars in this unique drama as an ex-cop who sacrificed everything and must now rebuild his own life as a teacher and mentor to a diverse group of teenagers. From the writer and executive producer of "The Karate Kid" and "Kiss of the Dragon", and the executive producers of Smallville, The WB's "Black Sash" features a multigenerational cast, dazzling martial arts and stories of hope and redemption. As an undercover narcotics cop, Tom Chang (Wong) paid a high price for staying true to his values. Framed and wrongly incarcerated in Hong Kong for allegedly smuggling heroin, he loses his career, his wife and the right to see his daughter. All he has left are the blazing skills of a master martial arts combatant. Now, after five years in a Hong Kong prison, Tom has come home to San Francisco, intent on restoring his life. Once back in San Francisco, Tom's mentor, Master Li (Mako, Pearl Harbor), gives Tom his martial arts school to run and a place to live in his building on the wharf. Tom finds a new family in the young men and women he trains in Chinese martial arts. His dedicated students include Tory Stratton (Missy Peregrym, Dark Angel, The Chris Isaak Show), a fiercely beautiful 17-year-old who has turned to martial arts as a way of dealing with the rage she feels over the death of her policeman father. A newcomer to the group, Trip Brady (Corey Sevier, Little Men ) is the victim of a violent father. For Trip, Tom's knowledge and kindness open the door to a new life. Bryan Lanier (Ray J, Moesha) is a tough-talking, streetwise teenager with a quick wit and a deep loyalty to his fellow students and to Tom. Another newcomer is the shy and warm-hearted Allie Bennett (Sarah Carter, Undeclared), who is searching for acceptance, friendship and for some of the skill and bravery she admires in Tory. Tom relies on the spiritual guidance of Master Li to help him deal with issues that arise in his life and the lives of his students. He also begins the long journey of trying to win back the right to see his daughter and the acceptance of his ex-wife, Beth (Ona Grauer). Tom spends his days teaching a new generation the skills and enlightenment he learned from Master Li. His message is timeless: patience and flexibility are the keys to overcoming any obstacle. Black Sash is produced by Tollin/Robbins Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Carlton Cuse (Martial Law, Nash Bridges), Robert Kamen (The Karate Kid, Kiss of the Dragon), Dylan Sellers (The Replacements), Mike Tollin, Brian Robbins and Joe Davola (Smallville) From TheWB.com.

    Tarzan

    Follow
    The WB (ended 2003)
    This thrilling, contemporary twist on the timeless legend of Tarzan turns the popular tale into an urban adventure, an intriguing mystery and, most of all, an unconventional crime drama. Two decades ago, young John Clayton's parents died in a plane crash and left him alone in the African jungle, where he grew up among apes and other wild animals. A solitary human in the pure and primal order of this untamed world, John Clayton emerged as the fearless Tarzan (newcomer Travis Fimmel). Captured by his billionaire uncle, Richard Clayton (Mitch Pileggi, The X-Files), the CEO of powerful Greystoke Industries, Tarzan is returned, against his will, to his family's home in New York City.

    Within the Clayton family, Tarzan's return has unleashed rivalries that have festered for decades. His uncle Richard is bitterly estranged from his younger sister Katherine Clayton the witty, sardonic and beautiful newspaper publisher who is Tarzan's aunt. While Richard believes that his desire to rehabilitate Tarzan and make him a real member of society is in Tarzan's own best interest, Katherine believes that what Tarzan really needs is their help and support as he finds his own way in this strange new world. Now that their nephew has returned from the dead as Tarzan, Richard and Katherine have squared off in a new battle. While they are both driven by love - for Tarzan and for the family - they also know that whoever controls Tarzan, controls Greystoke Industries as well. Resisting captivity, Tarzan escapes into the concrete jungle of New York City where he encounters the strong-willed NYPD detective Jane Porter (stage actress Sarah Wayne Callies). Jane's perfectly ordered life is turned upside-down by her attraction to Tarzan and his dangerous yet profoundly untainted morality.

    Romantically involved with another member of the force, Detective Michael Foster (Johnny Messner, Tears of the Sun), Jane is left to choose between reason and instinct, civilization and pure humanity, her head and her heart. While the rivalry between Tarzan and Michael quickly becomes explosive, the sudden shift in Jane's world also affects her partner Sam Sullivan (Miguel A. Núñez, Jr., Scooby Doo). Though he appears brash and irreverent, Sam is a dedicated cop, and he is stunned by Jane's reckless behavior and her obsession with this mysterious fugitive. Now that Tarzan is a part of her life, Jane sees everything differently, especially her work with the police force. Crimes of violence, greed and revenge suddenly take on a deeper and more disturbing meaning, and she is more troubled than ever before by what she sees. Looking at society from Tarzan's perspective, Jane begins to wonder what it really means to be "civilized."

    Drawn together from different worlds, Tarzan and Jane share passions that are only heightened by the gulf between them. Tarzan's feelings for Jane now keep him in New York, but his view of the world is unchanged. Confronted with a city that exists in shades of gray, Tarzan still sees everything in black and white. When he comes across an innocent person in trouble, he reacts swiftly and sometimes brutally, guided by the sense of justice that is the core of his being.

    Driven by his devotion to Jane and his unwavering sense of right and wrong, Tarzan makes his way through New York City, using instinct, his unique physical abilities and wits sharpened by years in the jungle. Tarzan is a modern day hero - an extraordinary man living in the real and all-too-brutal modern world. Tarzan is from executive producers Laura Ziskin (Spider-Man, Pretty Woman), David Gerber (The Lost Battalion), P.K. Simonds (Party of Five, Beauty and The Beast) and co-executive producer Eric Kripke (Battle of the Sexes) and is produced by Laura Ziskin Productions and The Gerber Company for Warner Bros.

    The WB (ended 1999)
    Exactly one year after his death, rock musician, Eric Draven, returns to earth in a symbolic and literal leap from the bridge that joins the Land of the Dead and the land of the living. Possessing the mystic powers of The Crow, he is neither living nor dead, searching for a way to right what has been wronged.

    The Crow: Stairway to Heaven continues the legacy of Eric Draven and expands on the mythology of the successful feature film franchise. Joined as soulmates, Draven and his girlfriend Shelly were inseparable — until they were brutally and senselessly murdered.

    Now, their souls cannot rest. Their romance endures through time and death, creating an incredible longing between the young lovers. Draven seeks redemption by helping others, fighting for those who cannot fight for themselves. Through each act of justice, he is taken one step closer to his own salvation.

    A foot soldier on the side of good, at Draven's core is a powerful force that transforms him into The Crow — his alter ego.

    Draven's return to Earth arouses both suspicion and curiosity from Daryl Albrecht, the police lieutenant who has never given up his crusade to solve the vicious crime that cost Eric and Shelly their lives.

    Eric also has other earthly allies. He and Shelly remain connected to Sarah, a 13-year-old kid who is streetwise beyond her years and who regarded the dead lovers as family. While her rebellious nature can be her worst enemy, she is the grounded voice of reality for Eric.

    Even a dead man needs to get a life. Although Eric Draven has been changed forever, he must exist, at least for now, in the world of the living.

    During the opening theme of the show, the voice-overs of Eric and Shelly say:

    SHELLY: People once believed that when someone dies, a Crow carries their soul to the Land of the Dead

    DRAVEN: But sometimes something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can't rest

    SHELLY: Then sometimes, just sometimes, the Crow can bring the soul back to put things right

    DRAVEN: Things can never be right, my soul will never rest, until we are together again.

    The WB (ended 2003)
    Cubix: Robots for Everyone takes place in the year 2040 in Bubble Town where robots outnumber humans. Robots are made in RobixCorp. Everyone has a robot, each with its own unique duty. This show centers around the Botties, a special club for people who know how to fix robots. But robots are going crazy all over Bubble Town all of a sudden, and no one knows why.

    The villain of the series, Dr. K, is after a greenish blue liquid known as Solex, which is what's making the robots go crazy, and he will stop at nothing to get it.

    - Aired in America before coming to Korea.
    - Adapted into a "manhwa" (Korean comic book) published by Daiwon

    This show was created by 4Kids Entertainment and originally went to Kids' WB! along with Yu-Gi-Oh! as part of a contract between The WB and 4Kids Entertainment, and it lasted two strong seasons. It then went to the Fox Box for a year, but now, it only remains in our hearts.

    Characters:

    HUMANS:

    Connor: The main human of the series, 13-year-old Connor is obsessed with robots. He moved to Bubble Town, and soonafter joined the Botties' Pit and fixed the "unfixable" robot, Cubix.

    Abby: Connor's next-door neighbor, best human friend, and fellow robot-lover, Abby was the first to show Connor around Bubble Town. She is a member of the Botties. Her pet robot, Dondon, has been her best robot friend since Abby was 6 years old. Abby's idol is Hela Nemo.

    Mong:The fat, tall, dumb Bottie, Mong loves to eat and make bad jokes. He's best friends with short, smart Chip, and his pet robot is Maximix.

    Hela Nemo: The adult Bottie, 30-year-old Hela knows everything about robots. She's the son of Professor Nemo and the idol of Abby. She owns the Botties Pit, and her main robots are Diagnostix, Mr. Fixit, Ixpressive, and Attractix.

    Charles: A spoiled brat, the richest kid in town, and the son of the mayor. Charles' family has important connections in Bubble Town, so he gets all the latest robot models. His main robot, Quixtreme 5000, Charles thinks he's the coolest robot ever, but boy is he wrong!

    Dr. K: The main villain of the series, Dr. K used to work for RobixCorp, but he lost his arm in a lab explosion and now uses his smarts for evil. In Season 1 he's after a substance called Solex to build the ultimate robot and destroy Bubble Town. His main robot is Kolossal, but he has his own line of evil robots such as Katastrophe, Kannon, Krab, and Kilobot.

    Graham: Connor's dad, he works at a local donut shop. He doesn't like robots, and his closest things to his own robot are Cubix and the Waitrixes that work at the donut shop.

    Raska: Bubble Town's most famous celebrity, Raska is the spokesperson of RobixCorp. She doesn't really have any robots besides the Cinematixes that film her. However, Raska's true form is an alien who is Dr. K's boss.

    Taryn: Connor's mother, she died before the series started. Connor keeps a picture of her in his room as a memory.

    Professor Nemo: The ultimate robotist, Professor Nemo is a robot encyclopedia. He was the one who built Cubix. Nemo disappeared in the aforementioned lab explosion, but was later found kidnapped by Dr. K. A giant sculpture of Nemo was always kept on the first floor of RobixCorp.

    ROBOTS:

    Acoustix: The "loud mouth of Bubble Town", this robot looks like a blue ball with a microphone. He has five built-in speakers, and a multi-time zone clock.

    Aquatix: The "robotic water purifier", Aquatix is like the Pur system you install on your faucet. He can clean water, turning it from wasteful water into fresh, ready-to-drink water.

    Attractix: Also known as "Kan-it" or "Magnetix", this robot is like a magnet. He can attract magnetic items toward him, usually to dump them into the Bubble Town Recycling Center. He seems to have a changing personality - he was made at RobixCorp for said purpose, but then wandered off to work for Dr. K, but then he joined the side of the Botties. Now that's what I call a magnetic personality!

    Babysix: The babysitting robot, Babysix is always available whenever you need her. On top of that, she also won the best robot contest for doing an accidental dance!

    Botanix: She's Bubble Town's gardening robot, she can make a topiary of anything. She was also the first robot to be seen infected with Solex.

    Brutix: This robot looks like a flying bulldog. It is actually the town police dog. They work with Sgt. Civix to keep the town clean of crimes.

    Cerebrix: Chip's personal robot, this is like a walking encyclopedia. This robot has data on anything, and can calculate things in seconds.

    Cubix: The main robot and star of the series, Cubix, the robot made of cubes, was built by Professor Nemo of RobixCorp. But Cubix was disabled in a lab explosion, and Professor Nemo was missing. The Botties and even Hela all tried their hardest to fix him, but none of them could. But for some reason Hela didn't want to throw him out. Until Connor came. Connor had some idea that Cubix would be his best friend and change his life. Since joining the Botties Pit requires fixing a robot within 24 hours, Connor chose Cubix. Cubix can transform into a hover scooter, a helicopter, and even a drill! Cubix always knows how to help out.

    Dondon: Abby's pet robot ever since she was six, Dondon is a flying pig robot that always pictures himself in the big picture. Dondon is very annoying, but he's also cute and can transmit messages and sound. He also loves triball!

    Maximix: This is Mong's pet robot. Maximix was given to Mong by his parents as an excercise robot, but Mong uses him so he doesn't have to walk anywhere! Maximix is very strong and fast, but sometimes he thinks too much of himself.

    Theme Song Lyrics:

    In the future, not so far away
    It's the dawning of an all new day!

    Machines that care could be our friends
    Side by side until the end!

    When the worlds of good and bad collide
    Gotta fight!

    "They say that dog is man's best friend. In L.A.'s trendy dog parks, it also can be man's best method for meeting women and sharing the latest adventures in dating. From Emmy-nominated writers Dan Staley and Rob Long (Cheers) comes a new relationship comedy about four guy friends in their twenties whose lives center around their girlfriends, their careers and their dogs - but not necessarily in that order." "Jeremiah (Bill Bellamy, The Brothers, Any Given Sunday, MTV Jams) is a talented chef and consummate player with a penchant for seducing women with his irresistible charm and decadent chocolate cake. His theory is that if you can convince a girl to break her rule about skipping dessert, there are no rules left. Commitment-phobic to a fault, Jeremiah is closer to his dog Wolfgang than he has ever been to any woman. Jeremiah's best friend Clay (Danny Pino) vocally disapproves of how he objectifies women, and is mocked mercilessly for being just the opposite - a sensitive idealist nursing the wounds of his first broken heart. Easygoing surf bum Eric (Niklaus Lange, Blonde) recently moved in with his girlfriend Michelle (Heather Stephens, Tomcats), who has issues about playing second fiddle to Eric's first love - his old and incontinent pooch, Betsy. Newest to the group, Royce (Mike Damus, Brutally Normal) is a study in unbridled, penny-pinching ambition that usually blows his chance at getting the girl. Royce doesn't actually have a dog; he just hangs out at the dog park holding a leash and a few scoops looking for fresh talent." "More likely to know how to pamper their pets than how to treat a lady, these four friends occasionally succeed in shedding some light on each other's inadequacies and fallacies. Bound by their canine companions, the unlikely comrades fumble their way through life's little indignities on their search for love and happiness. Maybe with a little help from a dog's sixth sense and the tug of an extendable leash, they'll also learn how to meet - and, more importantly, keep - a woman for good."

In her thirties, with a close-knit circle of friends, a great house in a beautiful California beach town and a growing career as a fashion designer, the last thing on her mind was settling down and starting a family. That all changed the day Ava's sister and brother-in-law were killed in an accident, leaving Ava to raise their three children.

    Until the accident, the biggest challenge in Ava's life was her career and the decision to quit her glamorous job at a large design house to start her own boutique designer label. Ava was comfortable with her role as the cool aunt who would occasionally drop in on her niece and nephews at their isolated Kansas farm or invite them to visit her in California, where they were dazzled by her exciting life.

    Despite the tragedy they've endured and the sudden transition from rural Kansas to the beaches of Southern California, the kids are doing pretty well. Sixteen-year-old Bradin (Jesse McCartney, All My Children) has his own adolescent angst to deal with, but he does his best to help his younger siblings. Twelve-year-old Nikki (Kay Panabaker, The Brothers Garcia, Phil Of The Future) has always adored her aunt but sometimes resents Ava's attempts to fill her late sister's shoes. Eight-year-old Derrick (Nick Benson, the upcoming feature film National Treasure) has enough on his hands just trying to understand the big issues of life, death and family.

    It's a sense of family that Ava is determined to provide for her sister's children. Since college, Ava's main support system has been her three devoted friends – Johnny, Jay and Susanna. Now her friends are ready and willing to reach out and become the ultimate surrogate family, and Ava is about to discover that it really does take a village (or in this case, a hip beach community) to raise a child.

    Johnny (Shawn Christian, As the World Turns, "Shopgirl") is Ava's former boyfriend and they have remained very close. He's an ambitious real estate wheeler-dealer who has the nagging feeling he hasn't yet found his true purpose in life. At the moment, however, he's content to be there for Ava and her instant family, acting as the father figure the kids desperately need.

    A completely different kind of male role model, Ava's friend Jay (Ryan Kwanten, Home and Away) is an Australian surfer with an undeniable Peter Pan syndrome. Jay owns the local surf shop, but he's no businessman. In fact, he's only looking for one thing in life – the perfect wave. Ava knows that Jay is still a kid at heart, and she asks for his help with Bradin, who instantly identifies with Jay's cheerfully laid-back philosophy of life. Jay also introduces Bradin to a stunning young surfing instructor named Erica (newcomer Taylor Cole). In Bradin's eyes, Erica embodies all that is beautiful and desirable about California.

    Ava's best girlfriend, Susanna (Merrin Dungey, Alias) is also her partner in the new business venture. Susanna handles the business decisions, while Ava is the creative force. They've learned to rely on one another and trust each other completely. Susanna is the person Ava always turns to when she needs advice. Although Susanna has no more experience with children than Ava, she never questions her friend's decision to give the kids a real home. When it comes to parenting decisions, Susann's level-headed objectiveness is the perfect balance for Ava's more emotional viewpoint.

    Ava may have started down a new path in life, but she won't be traveling alone. Relying on the diverse personalities and viewpoints of her devoted friends, Ava can face the day-to-day tasks of parenting knowing that she and her friends have the collective strength and skill to raise these kids right. As they spend their first summer together, Ava will struggle to balance the needs of her new family with the demands of a career that was once the entire focus of her life. Eventually, she will come to understand that the family she thought she didn't need is the one thing she was meant to have in her life.

Michael Straczynski, include background stories of the Earth-Minbari war and adventures woven into the series chronology. The final film in the series, ÒA Call to Arms,Ó covers the story of a Drahk revenge attack on Earth and lays the groundwork for a new spaceship mission and the TV spinoff series ÒCrusade.Ómoreless

Together, they have taken in a young runaway, Dinah, a metahuman herself with powers to open hidden doors to the mind, powers that she is only beginning to explore. Together, these three are the protectors of New Gotham - the Birds of Prey. "Birds of Prey" was a fantastic series, loved by many fans. Unfortunately, the show was one of the many that did not get to live as long as it should have. The show had so much going for it - an interesting storyline, addicting characters, a good theme, and a wonderful cast and crew. With an amazing start within the 13 episodes, who knows what this show would have turned into? All we know, it would have been amazing. The cast has already begun to move on, but now all we can ask for is a DVD box set so we will have something to remember our loved series by. Start off by signing the DVD Petition Online.

    The WB (ended 1997)
    Dexter Douglas is a mild-mannered teenager who, while logged onto the Internet one Christmas, is thrust into a horrible crash on the information superhighway and transformed into an electrifying superhero. He's average, predictable, the middle of the bell curve and the center of the silent majority, which most consider completely dull and boring; the type of person who just blends into the crowd. However, all this changes when he turns into the Freakazoid, a lightening haired superhero who wears red underwear and uses his new abilities to fight evil and do battle with villains such as the Lobe. That is, unless Cosgrove, his best friend and chief of police, can suggest something better to do. With his many trusted sidekicks, his fabulous Freakalair and his girlfriend Steph by his side, he's ready to save the day; that is, unless there's something better on TV. Character Descriptions Freakazoid is the hero of our show, the crazy alter-ego of Dexter Douglas. He draws his amazing powers of super speed and strength from cyberspace, which he obtained after an accident involving a Pinnacle Computer Chip. While he does his best to save the day, he's considered a lunatic and often does the unexpected. Dexter Douglas is the teenage geek alter-ego of Freakazoid, he's quiet, mild mannered and a bit of a nerd; though he does keep his other identity a secret. However, when evil rears its ugly head, Dexter will "Freak Out" to become the mighty Freakazoid. Cosgrove is the chief of police and Freakazoid's best friend. He's always on the hand with good advice for our hero and he typically has a neat idea about how to spend the afternoon. While he's not always useful, he usually does come along to bust the bad guys when Freakazoid managed to defeat the villains. Steph is both Dexter and Freakazoid's love interest; she's considered an attractive character but is romantically interested in Freakazoid, which makes Dexter upset; though it does permit her to be around to help Freakazoid save the day at times. The Lobe is Freakazoid's archenemy; he's always coming up with diabolical schemes that will help him take over the world, though despite his huge brain, he's always running into Freakazoid's opposition at every turn. The Huntsman, formally Marty Feeb, is a super strong, super fast hero who lives in the forest, but will run to the city to fight crime in a jiffy whenever 'The Horn of Urgency' is sounded. Provided it isn't a slow crime day, that is. Lord Bravery is an up and coming British super hero trying to make his name. Things just never seem to go right for him though.

With their headquarters behind Hector's cornea, these partners have established their "private eye" agency... hoping to keep Hector safe from the many changes and dangers associated with adolescence.
