Phantom Investigators

Show Summary

The Phantom Investigators are 4 fairly average junior high-school kids with super-natural powers that run the Phantom Investigators that helps kid's problems with the super-natural. Characters: Kira: Looking for some music to dance to? Look to Kira. Want some dry wit? Kira's your girl. Need someone to read minds? Kira can do that, too. Kira's a telepathic DJ who occassionally regrets being a Phantom Investigator. However, she's far too dedicated to helping others to give up. Jericho: Jericho is a telekinetic and a wisecracker; he can move things with his mind and make you laugh at the same time. He's not the brightest member of the team, but still manages to get them out of more than a few scrapes with his ingenuity.

Casey: Casey is a nerd. There's no denying it; no one can change that. However, what can be changed is Casey's appearance. He can be a dog, a pinball machine, a pair of scissors or anything else he can think of; this shy but friendly geek is a shapeshifter, ladies and gentlemen. Daemona Prune: Unlike the others P.I.'s, Daemona has no special powers. She makes do, however; she is an expert in the supernatural and a gifted leader. She wears a funky costume, has a quirky manner of answering the phone and is always the first to meet prospective clients. This foursome, powerful and smart as they are, do sometimes need help. Lucky for them, they've got it. Professor Navarro, an inventor, always has the time and resources to assist. There's also Jinxy, a bad-luck demon in Navarro's debt, often has knowledge about all things spiritual for the gang. And there's Wad, an annoying and occasionally useful wad of spiritual bubblegum who is annoying and occasionally useful. Together, this cast of memorable characters star in Phantom Investigators, a show as distinctive as they. The series was animated using a variety of near-forgotten techniques in our modern world of cgi: puppetry, paper cut-outs, stop-motion and even some live-action (not so forgotten, admittedly). Meanwhile, the stories often travel into the realm of the bizarre and highly imaginative. Very distinctive stuff.

  • Why on EARTH did you cancel it!?

    This was one of my favorite shows I saw on saturday mornings on Kids WB! It was so good why they cancelled it I'll never know. I saw all 6 episodes that aired and they were all very good. Thank god the show's production company uploaded all of the episodes that were made (aired & unaired) along with some of their other work they did for TV on youtube. This was really good with perfect stop motion animation and special effects. It was really REALLY good!! This will always be one of my favorite saturday morning cartoons that I ever saw in my life.
