10 Girl Cartoons (That Guys Secretly Love)

10 Girl Cartoons (That Guys Secretly Love) Intro

Nowadays, despite the content, a lot of the cartoons on TV end up appealing to both genders and various age groups – but that wasn’t always the case. Many of us hid our affection for such awesome shows as Sailor Moon because of their labeling as a "girls shows," with some series even being branded as too girly for even girls to admit liking - but I say, no more!

The Olympics may have recently given the world a healthy dose of manly (and womanly) feats of strength - but now the time has come for the everyday man to prove his intestinal fortitude by proudly standing up and confessing to some of our hidden cartoon loves.

Care Bears

10 Girl Cartoons (That Guys Secretly Love) - Care Bears Original Run: 1985 – 1988 Number of Episodes: 100 + 3 Related Movies The Story: Alright, at first glance this may seem like a fairly gender neutral series, but trust me, even at the tender age of six, rocking a Care Bears lunch box to school was a great way to get a toilet bowl face wash. (Don’t ask me how I know.) The Care Bears originally started off as greeting card characters created by American Greetings back in 1981. The TV series we all know (and secretly love) didn’t kick off 'til 1985, following a few warmhearted movie specials, but later became a huge market success. The weak premise - small talking bears whose primary goal was to spread love to the world - may sound like cheesy hippie nonsense, but as a kid you really don’t tend to remember that. In December 1983, American Greetings lost a lawsuit against Easter Unlimited, who created similar toys known as "Message Bears." According to New York City judge Leonard B. Sand, the Message Bears lacked the "heart-shaped 'toushee tags'" used to identify the Care Bears. Fun Fact: To keep the Care Bears secret until they were ready to be advertised, American Greetings called them "Project II" because Care Bears were the second group of characters American Greetings created - the first being the well-known and hugely successful Strawberry Shortcake.

Kim Possible

10 Girl Cartoons (That Guys Secretly Love) - Kim Possible Original Run: 2002 –2007 Number of Episodes:  87 + 2 Related TV Movies The Stitch: Kim Possible was tagged as the girl that could do anything! Well, except for fly, read minds or any other thing that requires superpowers – but she was cool nonetheless. Kim Possible (Christy Carlson Romano) is a high school cheerleader who became a crime-fighter due to a typo on her babysitting Website. Joined by her quasi-useless sidekick Ron Stoppable (Will Friedle) and her Tech-hermit, Wade (Tahj Mowry), Kim travels the world punching in the evil faces of mutants, mad-scientists and megalomaniacs - while still making it back in time for Mr.Barkin’s first period gym class. The Emmy Award-winning series was the brainchild of screenwriters Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley, who claim they created the show in an elevator. As they both tell it, McCorkle turned to Schooley and said, "Kim Possible: she can do anything." To which Schooley immediately replied, "Her partner is Ron Stoppable: he can't do anything". Kim Possible currently holds the title of the longest-running Disney Channel Original Series in terms of duration, airing for five years and three months. Fun Fact: Neil Patrick Harris (Before his How I Met Your Mother revival) auditioned for the role of Ron Stoppable.

Pippi Longstocking

Original Run: 1997-1999 Number of Episodes:  26 + 2 Related Movies The Story: Created by Swedish author and screenwriter Astrid Lindgren in 1945, Pippi Longstocking is your typical guy’s girl – except with super strength. After initially being rejected by its first publisher, the original Pippi Longstocking books later bred many shows and movies featuring the plucky ginger daughter of an old sea captain - including the much-loved 1997 animated movie, which spun off into the series’ first animated TV show. While not as popular as the film (which was highly praised for its original music) The 1997 Pippi cartoon followed the story of Pippi returning home from adventures at seas to Villa Villekulla, along with her pet horse and her monkey, Mr. Nilsson, to wait for her father. While at first the townsfolk are less than thrilled to have the uneducated wild child back in the community, they soon warm up to her sweet and refreshingly honest nature. Fun Fact: Pippi’s full name is: Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Ephraim's Daughter Longstocking (try saying that 10 times fast!)

My Little Pony

10 Girl Cartoons (That Guys Secretly Love) - My Little Pony Original Run: 1984 – 1987 Number of Episodes:  63 + 8 Related Specials The Story: Bred from Hasbro’s less-colorful My Pretty Pony toy series, My Little Pony was one of the most popular collectibles in the 1980s. Hailing from the magical Ponyland, which is home to all kinds of magical creatures, The Little Ponies live peacefully in their Paradise Estate. Between merry song and playful games, The Little Ponies like to spend their time hoof-stomping the odd Ogre, Troll or Witch that try to destroy or enslave them. There are many out there that think the idea of prancing pretty ponies is solely a girls domain, but an ever-growing subgroup known as "Bronies" would say a collective "Neyyyy!" to that! A blended of "bro" and "pony," Bronies hold a fan convention known as BroNYCon every few months in New York City. In just one year, BroNYCon has shot up from a mere 100 to a whopping 4000+ attendees, and has even featured special celebrity guests like voice acting superstar Tara Strong and Star Trek’s John de Lancie. Fun Fact: There was a set of male My Little Pony toys marketed to boys in 1986. In North America they were called Big Brother Ponies (Adventure Boy Ponies in the UK). The Big Brother ponies are larger than other ponies, and have shaggy hooves like Clydesdale horses.

Cardcaptors

10 Girl Cartoons (That Guys Secretly Love) - Card Captor Original Run: 2000 – 2002 (North American) Number of Episodes:  70 + 3 Related Specials The Story: 10-year-old Sakura Avalon’s life changes forever when she unintentionally releases the mystical Clow Cards from an ancient and magical book. Each Clow Card holds a powerful and somewhat dangerous spirit, each with its own unique and remarkable powers. Now unleashed in the real world, Sakura (as the one who let them out) takes up the mantel of Card Captor and must "seal" each spirit back into card-form before it can wreak too much havoc. Cardcaptors first aired in the US on Kids' WB in June of 2000, and like a lot of Japanese anime was heavily edited, with episodes being reordered or even left out entirely. The editing to the original dub was done to remove controversial subjects such as same-sex relationships, and to refocus the series to be more action oriented to appeal to male viewers, as they were seen as the largest audience of animation at the time. Fun Fact: There's a Dragon Ball Z connection: The English voice actors that played Sakura's dad and best friend Madison also voiced the English versions of Vegeta and Bulma, respectively, in the popular Dragon Ball series.

Totally Spies!

10 Girl Cartoons (That Guys Secretly Love) - Totally Spies! Original Run: 2001 – 2010, 2013 - Number of Episodes:  156 + 1 Related Movie + 1 Related Spin-Off The Story: Produced by Franco-Canadian company Marathon Production, Totally Spies! follows the glamorous missions of three teenage valley-girls (Sam, Alex, and Clover) turned stylish super-spies. The dynamic team combats global terrorism on behalf of clandestine spy agency, The World Organization of Human Protection (or W.O.O.H.P.), which is led by the British founder and administrator known only as "Jerry". The series currently sits at five seasons as of 2010, with a full-length animated film, which hit French theaters in 2009. Cartoon Network aired the first four seasons in the US, but the contract expired, preventing the channel from airing the show's fifth season. Due to the show's success, Cartoon Network re-licensed Totally Spies! and its spin-off, The Amazing Spiez! for €16 million ($21.5 million US), as well as Totally Spies! The Movie, for another $20 million US. In December 2011, Marathon announced that the series will be continued with Season 6, to air in 2013. If you think about it, this could actually be a cool live-action movie if executed correctly. The comedic mix of action, loveable characters and strong storylines has worked well for the popular animated franchise, and could easily translate well to the big screen. Fun Fact: Seasons 3–4 featured a willful super computer called G.L.A.D.I.S. whose ability to annoy Jerry and the girls was added as comedic relief – but her ability to annoy fans caused so many overwhelming complaints that she was written out of the series entirely.

She-Ra: Princess of Power

10 Girl Cartoons (That Guys Secretly Love) - She-Ra Original Run: 1985 – 1986 Number of Episodes:  96 + 1 Related Special + 1 Related Series The Story: Anyone who thinks girls can’t fight in a miniskirt and heels should talk to She-Ra. A spin-off of the popular He-Man and The Masters of the Universe, She-Ra revolves around the adventures of Adora and the Great Rebellion, as they battle against Hordak and the Evil Horde. Stolen as a baby from the kingdom of Eternia by Hordak, Adora not only never knew her family, she actually fought against them as a member of the Evil Horde. Now free of Hordak’s thrall, she reunites with her brother He-Man to fight evil by taking up the title of She-Ra, Princess of Power! In the ultimate display of girl power, most key characters on She-Ra: Princess of Power were predominantly female (with the exception of the villain Hordak). The few male characters (Bow and Sea Hawk) were usually portrayed as weaker or as comic relief to counter the powerful and authoritative female leads. Compared to He-Man there was less violence on the She-Ra, and the animation was more vibrant and colorful in an attempt to make the show more appealing to girls. Fun Fact: Despite her acrobatic tendencies, She-Ra's skirt never moves throughout the entire series. This is because female directors and animators on the show found it very inappropriate for the lead character's skirt to fly up on a children's television show.

Sailor Moon

10 Girl Cartoons (That Guys Secretly Love) - Sailor Moon ROriginal Run:1995 – 2000, 2013 - Number of Episodes:  200 + 3 Related Movies The Story: C’mon now, we all remember the theme song, "Fighting evil by moonlight, winning love by daylight. With the Sailor Scouts to help fight; she is the one named Sailor Moon!" – which pretty much sums up the entire story of the whiny Serena Tsukino, who finds out she’s the princess of the Moon and must now battle the evil alien enemies sent to kill her. The English adaptation of Sailor Moon was produced in an attempt to capitalize on the success of the well-received Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. After a huge bidding war, DIC Entertainment (which was owned by The Walt Disney Company at the time) acquired the rights to the first two seasons of the Sailor Moon franchise in early 1995, and was the first English adaptation of an anime series intended for young female audiences. The final season, "Sailor Stars," was never dubbed into English due to America losing licensing rights to Sailor Moon. The series was one of the most censored English anime/manga adaptions ever to air. To make the show age appropriate, several episodes were completely dropped and scenes with too much skin were touched up. The most notable changes were to the show's strong depiction of same-sex relationships – to counter this, several androgynous characters had their genders flipped (Zoycite (male to female), Fisheye (male to female), and Zirconia (female to male).  The US also altered the relationship between Sailors Uranus and Neptune from lesbian lovers to cousins. At a July 6, 2012 event celebrating the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon, it was announced that a reboot of the Sailor Moon anime was in production. It is scheduled to begin broadcasting in Summer 2013 for a simultaneous worldwide release. Fun Facts: Despite his penchant to do so in the TV series, Tuxedo Mask never once throws a rose as an attack in the original manga.

Jem! and the Holograms

Original Run: 1985 – 1988 Number of Episodes: 65 The Story: Jem was the queen of holographic performances long before Coachella’s Tupac hologram made it cool. When her father dies, young Jerrica Benton inherits not only his record company, Starlight Music, but his super-secret ultimate audio-visual entertainment synthesizer known as Synergy. With the help of Synergy, as well as her friends, Jerrica adopts the persona of Jem (Samantha Newark (speaking voice) and Britta Phillips (singing voice)) to save Starlight Music - and a girls home Jerrica runs - from the evil Eric Ramon and his wicked girl group, The Misfits. Created by a three-way collaboration of Hasbro, Sunbow Productions, and Marvel Productions, Jem! was designed as an attempt to cash in on the growing popularity of MTV. Originally the main character was named "M" (as in MTV), but was eventually replaced with Jem since you cannot trademark a single letter (and to avoid a lawsuit). However, the MTV theme lived on in the series, with a mandatory 3 music videos per episode format. In honor of the show's 25th anniversary, Integrity Toys, Inc. released a brand-new series of collectible fashion dolls based on Jem! at the Hasbro Toy Shop booth during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The special edition Hollywood Jem! doll went for $135 a pop and sold out on Day 2 of the Con. Fun Facts: Besides appearing in Jem!, the character of reporter Hector Ramirez would appear in various TV shows made by Sunbow, including G.I. Joe, InHumanoids, and The Transformers. He was the only character to crossover.

The Powerpuff Girls

 10 Girl Cartoons (That Guys Secretly Love) -  Powerpuff GirlsOriginal Run: 1998 – 2005 Number of Episodes:  78 + 2 Shorts + 2 Related Specials + 1 Related Movie The Story: There’s no shame confessing to this one; The Powerpuff Girls has been a hit on Cartoon Network for years, and we all had our favorites on the show (mine was Bubbles). The story follows the lonely and childless genius Professor Utonium, who sought to create the perfect little girl using a mixture of sugar... spice... and everything nice. But the bumbling professor accidentally added an extra ingredient known as "Chemical X", instead creating three perfect little girls who had pretty much had the powers of Superman. Created as a college project by animator Craig McCracken, the color-coded girls didn’t hit the TV screen (and our hearts) until 1998, when McCracken (then working on Dexter’s Lab) resurrected the idea to Hanna-Barbera (now Cartoon Network Studios) as part of their What a Cartoon! Show shorts program. The Powerpuff Girls was the highest-rated premiere in Cartoon Network's history (at the time) and consistently scored the highest rating each week for the network's demographic. While the super-powered girls were depicted as kindergarteners and dealt with childhood issues (sibling rivalries, bed wetting etc.), many episodes often contained obscure references to older pop culture. For the series' tenth anniversary, McCracken and Cartoon Network released an all-new special, titled "The Powerpuff Girls Rule!!!" which aired in the US on January 19, 2009, as part of its 10th anniversary marathon. Fun Fact: The Powerpuff Girls were originally called "The Whoopass Girls."In  McCracken's original '90s college short titled Whoopass Stew! The Whoopass Girls in: A Sticky Situation, instead of "Chemical X," Professor Utonium accidentally added a can of Whoop-Ass to the concoction.

Honorable Mentions

10 Girl Cartoons (That Guys Secretly Love) - Honorable Mentions Our main list may be at an end, but let’s do a quick shout-out to the live-action girl shows we lovingly watched alone, but dared not tell our friends about for fear of mockery. Punky Brewster: Punky Brewster was pretty much a modern (for the time) retelling of little orphan Annie, but despite the strong similarities, the series really took off on its own. Many remember having their hearts stolen by the precocious Penelope "Punky" Brewster (Soleil Moon Frye), and the series even got itself a live-action and cartoon spin off. Sabrina, the Teenage Witch: Many of us met one of our first TV crushes the magical day Melissa Joan Hart hit our television screens as Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. If Sabrina’s face is what brought you, the cherished TGIF sitcom format and her wisecracking cat Salem is what kept you. Sabrina started as a spin-off character from Archie comics, and even dated everyone’s favorite animated ginger – who surprisingly got around a lot in that fictional town of his. Sister, Sister: Before there was Zack and Cody we had Tia and Tamera. Real-life twin sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry play fictional twin sisters Tia Lowery and Tamera Campbell, who reunite after 14 years apart. ABC canned the show after two seasons, due to what they claim was "low ratings," but The WB quickly swooped in and saved the show for another four years. Blossom: In my opinion, Blossom was one of the best sitcoms of the early '90s, whose theme song may or may not be on my iPod. Mayim Bialik (Big Bang Theory) starred as Blossom Russo, a quirky teenage girl living with her father and two brothers. Besides loving Joey’s (Joey Lawrence) trademark "Whoa!" Blossom also featured many popular celebs at the time - like ALF, Will Smith and Mr.T. So gents (and gals) there you have it, our list of "girl" shows we as men can now proudly admit to loving! If your secret love didn’t make the cut, and you now feel comfortable enough to share it in this circle of brotherly trust, do so in the comment section below - or feel free to reminisce on your favorite moments from the truly outrageous shows we already mentioned.

  1. Just to tell you the My Little Pony that is meant to be on here is My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. The show is not from the 80′s it came out in 2010. Here is a clip from the show http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaUbi-7uBDg

  2. C’om…Where’s Urd & Belldandy from Ah My Goddess or Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop

    • Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop was awesome! but Cowboy Bebop wasnt a girls show

    • I don’t know about the first one, but Cowboy Bebop is not a kids show, it never aired on American TV, and it wasn’t aimed at just women. So I doubt it qualifies for the list. Sailor Moon was only popular among men cause of the pseudo porn in it, pretty much like all anime.

      My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is the MLP you mean btw, not the show from 80′s.

      • Um, Cowboy Bebop DID air on American television years ago and continues to do so occasionally on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim.

        • Adult swim huh, yeah that sounds like Kids TV. I stand corrected on the TV thing, but it still wasn’t a kids/girls show. The movie is Rated R for pete’s sake.

          • Adult Swim is far from kid friendly lol and the movie also released in the states back in the early 2000′s. And just here to give people a heads up =)

      • “Pseudo porn in it, pretty much like all anime”? That statement pretty much illustrates that you have limited knowledge or exposure to anime. Most of the “fanservice” in Sailor Moon was edited out of the original DIC series. While there anime genres that are “ecchi” (sexuality from a “PG-13″ to “R” rating) and “hentai” (erotica to porn), there are far more genres that don’t even come close to “G” or “PG” rated fanservice animes, which Sailor Moon could be seen as. Ever heard of Hayao Miyazaki? Cardcaptors (Sakura) has no fanservice, unless you are attracted to pre-teens.

  3. only ppg is passable,the rest is s***…

  4. what about Daria?

    • Definitely Daria. As far as the list Powerpuff and Kim Possible were the only two there I would watch. And silly writer you should know that when most of us had a crush on Melissa Joan Hart she was Clarissa on “Clarissa Explains it All”.

      • Daria was and is an amazing show! But check the title, its 10 Girl Cartoons (That Guys SECRETLY Love). I don’t see Daria being anyone’s dirty little secret. And silly reader Melissa Joan Hart didn’t get hot until Sabrina.

    • Daria wasn’t aimed for girls only though

  5. Guess it’s confession time…
    Out of all these shows I watched Kim Possible, Cardcaptors, Totally Spies, Sailor Moon (had no idea how censored that show was until I read this article) and the Power Puff Girls (which is the only one of these shows that I still love to this day).

    *sigh*, it felt good to get that off my chest ;)

  6. She Ra wasn’t bad. I’ll cop to watching My Little Pony and Care Bears,but only I had to watch the stuff with my little sis before GI Joe and Transformers came on.

  7. This list seems more like a cracked.com list than a ScreenRant

  8. I watched She-Ra,especially when He-Man appeared. I have to say for a cartoon that i forget the name of the character on the show, that girl with the pink hair was a hottie for a cartoon & i was a little kid,lol. I watched Jem during preschool as the boys & girls watched a boy/girl show. I admit those girls were hot for animation aswell. Same goes for Jasmine from Aladdin series & Jessica Rabbit,lol.

    Jessica Rabbit:(Im not bad. Im just drawn that way.) Lol, loved that line.

  9. OK, all yuse guys, turn in your mancard! No excuses, just give ‘em to me now!! :-P

    Sailor Moon was the only one I ever watched. I may have watched She-Ra, but that was so long ago I can’t remember.

  10. As a fan of He-Man growing up I definitely had a thing for She-Ra. Cant say I ever watched anything else on this list though.

  11. I don’t really think that just because there is a girl as the main character, it necessarily makes it a “Girl’s Show”.

    Kim Possible and Power Puff Girls both appeal to boys and girls because they were excellently written, had a variety of characters, and weren’t just shows about “girls” issues.

    I have no clue why dudes watch My Little Pony though…

    • If you’ve seen the new My Little Pony, it’s made by the same woman who created Powerpuff Girls, and it’s actually very good.

      • Where’d you read that a woman created the PowerPuff Girls? Craig McCracken (the creator) is a man…

        • Sorry, I take that back – she was a storyboard artist, writer, director, and supervising director.

          • Lol it’s alright, mistkes are part of what make us human =)

  12. Care Bears – Meh, I didn’t like Kim Possible and hated Pippy Longstockings and MLP, Cardcaptors was good, Totally Spies was ok-ish, She-Ra i’d never heard of before this article, Sailor Moon was awesome, that Jem and the holograms one I’d never heard of either, and Powerpuff Girls was good and entertaining when I was a kid.

  13. I didn’t know it had to be a secret to like those shows if you’re a guy. I just thought they were/are good shows, it never really bothered me that the protagonist(s) were female. Though I do not get My Little Pony / Friendship is Magic.

  14. Ok I admit it, I was hooked on Jem for a bit. The animation at the top was amazing

    • Yeah I’ll admit ,I use 2 watch jem back in the days as well.

  15. I’m pretty sure we all watched Sailor Moon for the babes.

  16. Totally Spies FTW… with Kim possible and powerpuff girls with them

  17. Best Powerpuff episode was a spoof of the Beatles called “Meet the Beat-Alls”. There was even a Yoko character.

    • I remember that one. Definitely one of favorites as well.

    • moko jono was her name, a performance criminal. but her real name was michelle. and i loved the little easter egg they did with her. one of the most popular misheard lyrics from the song michelle, “sunday monkey won’t play piano song, play piano song.”

      and the narrator was stuart best, a combination of pete best and stuart sutcliffe.

  18. I’m not emberassed to admit that I watched (and love ) Kim Possible (I still watch episodes of it on youtube), Card Captors, She-Ra and the Power Puff Girls, the rest either annoyed me or I outgrew them.

    And why isn’t My Little Pony: Friendship is magic on here?

  19. Care Bears: liked the first movie didn’t care for the show or sequel
    Kim Possible: loved it
    Pippi Longstocking: no clue it was a cartoon
    My Little Pony: never watched the original series
    Cardcaptors: loved this
    Totally Spies!: yeah watched this too -_-
    She-Ra: Princess of Power: never watched
    Sailor Moon: always watched this
    Jem! and the Holograms: never watched
    The Powerpuff Girls: always watched

  20. Alright so I’m a girl and the big one that embarassed me on this list was Sailor Moon. I was very fond of it as a kid but felt it was a little too girly so I never tlked about it. I also watched Totally Spies! and the PowerPuff Girls and still do lol.

  21. Totally Spies! Sailor Moon! PPG! Kim Possible!
    I completely LOVE these cartoons…good times.

  22. I loved the Powder-Puff…err the PowerPuff Girls and I’m a grown-@ss-man!

  23. This has got to be one of the best things I’ve read for you!!

    I still love PPG, Totally Spies, KP and Jem! Sailor Moon, has been one of my favs for years, but I never knew it was so censored! Specially the two that were lesbians? For real? And those “fun facts” were actually pretty interesting.

    PS: Killer pics too! That first image is pretty sweet. Thanks!

    • Thanking you! I’m glad someone loved those images lol, making some of them nearly killed me.

  24. OK OK you got me biting lol,

    Since when was Care Bears a girls cartoon, it came out the sametime as My Little Pony, with the Care Bears being aimed at young boys and My Little Pony being aimed at girls. THIS IS FACT! I WAS THERE!

    Power Puff Girls, ok I’ll give you this one. It came out on the cartoon network around the time of Dexters Lab. and a few other gems not to be missed. Yes, it is a girls cartoon but with all the girl power around at the the time with the Spice Girls, you could immediatley see what had influenced it. So yes, I liked it, but what is girl power at the end of the day, it is girls trying to behave like boys. I rest my case.

    Gem, omg I loved this, I remember geting the comic and winning first prize in a competition for something or other, but couldn’t claim it as I had forgot to send the proof of purhase (still gripes me even today).

    The other cartoons, I honestly haven’t got a clue. Maybe you should do a top ten cartoons for boys. I g/tee that Dragon Ball with be number 1. I’ve worked with people during this summer (part-time summer hols from uni), and as soon as Dragon Ball got mentioned (cant remember why) you had a load of us talking about the epic fights that went on for weeks (quite literally).

    • I meant since when was care bears a cartoon aimed at girls lol.

  25. 2, 7 and 10 No
    the rest yeah, especially kim possible and power puff girls
    cardcaptors doesnt really hold up though.

  26. I am soooooo glad I was too old for these shows. I never saw an episode of any of these and am proud to say it. Strong female characters were part of ensemble shows when I was growing up in the 70′s And early 80′s. Wonder Woman in Super Friends and Batgirl from the Batman series from the mid-late 70′s. Daphne and Velma from Scooby-Doo, Ariel from Thundarr the Barbarian, and Firestar from Spiderman and his Amazing Friends

    • Who said you should be ashamed to say you never saw an episode of these shows?Why are you so proud to say that anyway, what, you’d feel embarrassed if you did.

  27. I LOOOOOVE how you say “The sitch” for the plot summary of Kim Possible.

    • And I LOOOOOOVVEE that you didn’t just notice it, you mentioned it! Ya know when I write these things I toss in these lil extras and hope people notice. So thanks for that!

  28. Kim possible and Totally spies. :D

  29. The summary of Powerpuff Girls forgot to mention Powerpuff Girls Z. Although not released in the US, it bears mention, if just for the fact that in this show the girls have HANDS!!
