Kim Possible is an American animated action comedy-adventure television series created by Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle that originally aired on Disney Channel from June 7, 2002 to September 7, 2007.

Plot

The series revolved around a high school student named Kim Possible who becomes a freelance heroine after rescuing Mr. McHenry who made a typing error and contacted her babysitting site. Though an exceptionally gifted heroine, she is still at heart a teenager so in addition to battling wacky villains like Dr. Draken, she still hangs out with friends and works on her love life.

Why It Rocks

  1. Great animation with excellent character designs.
  2. Fluent action scenes, rarely easy to animate well in an animated series.
  3. Very likable characters, like Kim Possible herself and her best friend (later boyfriend) Ron Stoppable.
  4. Great voice acting with the actors having tons of chemistry.
  5. Great soundtrack, especially the theme song, Call Me, Beep Me, and some other notable songs like The Naked Mole Rap, Say the Word, Rappin' Drakken and Could It Be?
  6. Actually shows a strong female character without dumbing down most of the guys or making them stereotypical jerks (not counting the supervillains). Take a note on that, Nutcracker and the Four Realms.
  7. The sidekick Ron Stoppable shows great courage when facing danger even though he is not as skilled as her (not counting the Monkey Kung-Fu he acquired).
  8. Numerous supervillains, from Dr. Drakken, Shego, DNAmy, and Monkey Fist (who was actually Ron's archenemy). Dr. Drakken and Shego in particular have amazing chemistry and easily steal the show.
  9. Lots of funny jokes, especially from Ron and Drakken.
  10. One of the Disney Channel's longest lasting cartoons at 87 episodes. It originally lasted for only 3 seasons and 65 episodes, but got one more season because of fan outcry.
  11. The success of the series spawned three television films Kim Possible: A Sitch in Time, Kim Possible Movie: So the Drama, and the infamous live-action Kim Possible movie released in 2019.
  12. The series has some very good morals.

Bad Qualities

  1. Kim can be seen as a Mary-Sue.
  2. It can get mean-spirited.
  3. Some unlikeable characters like Bonnie Rockwaller.

Reception

It is considered one of the greatest cartoons and Disney Channel shows of the 2000s and has a rating of 7.2/10 on IMDB, and 8.6/10 on tv.com

Trivia
