The X's is an American animated television series created by Carlos Ramos for Nickelodeon. It centers on a family of spies who must conceal their identity from the outside world, but often have trouble in doing so. It was short-lived, with a single season of 20 episodes airing from November 25, 2005 to November 25, 2006.

Why It Rocks

  1. Has a retro style look of the 1950s and outlines that are not black, similar to the Powerpuff Girls.
  2. The Family resembles the look of Family Guy, The Incredibles and American Dad!.
  3. Great characters such as Mr. X and villains, such as Glowface, Sasquatch, and Lorenzo.
  4. Excellent and decent voice acting.
  5. Home-Base does a lot of supporting for the family.
  6. Each episode has a lot of its development.
  7. Catchy theme song.
  8. To the X-jet!
  9. It's one of Nickelodeon's cult classics of the 2000s.
  10. The animation looks pretty decent and it's a little similar to many vintage cartoons of the 2000's.
  11. Each of the X family has their own personality.
    • Mr. X the leader, father and the funny one.
    • Mrs. X the combat specialist, fighter, mother and the tough one.
    • Tuesday X the girly-girl, investigator, the daughter and the boy-crazy one.
    • Truman X the nerdy, tech expert and the smart one.

Bad Qualities

  1. The characters can sometimes be mean-spirited, stereotypical, and cliched, mostly Truman X.
  2. The animation and designs didn't age quite well.
  3. The show is too similar to The Incredibles, as it's about a family of spies.
  4. The lip syncing is bad at times.
  5. The episode “Live and Let Diaper” is full of toilet humor as the episode revolves around the family babysitting a baby, who spends the majority of the episode in a soiled diaper. So, obviously, poop jokes follow.

Proposed Revival

  • In 2010, after the series premiere of T.U.F.F. Puppy, Carlos Ramos came up on trying to bring The X's for a second season to resolve the cliffhanger ending and he said "I have some pieces that I think are good, but I don't have them all together, because I loved the characters and their universe they live, I don't make them really cliched. I have lots of elements that I think will work really well in another installment of The X's, if I can get enough time to be developing".

Trivia

  • Ren and Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi voiced a minor character called Bowling Alley Guy in the episode "Pinheads".
  • The show is by far the most mistreated Nicktoon that ever aired on the main network in history. Not only did the series suffer from a lack of advertising and being constantly pre-empted by other shows, but reruns were almost non-existent. The network dropped the show a year later and reruns were dumped on Nicktoons Network, on which it was often pre-empted with other shows. The final episode never aired on either network, and the series is considered the most obscure and hardest to find Nicktoon. However, the last 2 episodes can be found on the Internet Archive.
  • Just like those other Nickelodeon shows, it was never released on DVD nor on any other streaming services. The only streaming service that the show is available on is on Amazon consisting 13 out of 20 episodes, but the episodes are currently unavailable in the United States. The closest is only on both Nick Picks Vol. 4 & 5, or Vimeo where the director of the show Dave Marshall uploaded them. You can check them out here.
  • The X's was the third and final Nicktoon that was premiered in 2005, after Avatar: The Last Airbender and Catscratch.
