It's hard to imagine anyone who hasn't yet encountered Kim Possible, but for those who haven't and are seeking a clue, here goes: Kim is "your average basic girl, out to save the world," the adorable green-eyed, redheaded high school cheerleader daughter of a rocket scientist and a brain surgeon, with a jealous bimbo rival (Pep-Squad wannabe-leader Bonnie), two troublesome twin younger brothers, and helpful friends (Ron Stoppable and his naked mole-rat "Rufus," and never-leaves-his-screen computer geek Wade). She has her own website, which has made her something of a superhero in spite of herself. Her adversaries are idiot mad-scientists and the like, such as the two featured in this DVD, D. N. Annie and Dr. Drakken. Drakken, especially, is a comical cad, a failed NASA robotics expert who happens to be Kim's father's arch-rival, though it takes him a long time to figure out that Kim, despite sharing the same rare last name as Dr. Possible, is related. His "three blue BeBe's," seen in this collection, are among the most memorable "henchmen" in the entire series. His usual assistant, Shego - infinitely smarter than the mad, blue-skinned doctor, himself - is almost Kim's own dark alter-ego, a fashion-conscious snob with super-athletic abilities and glow-in-the-dark green eyes and hands.
This is one of my favorite shows, which is saying a lot, since I ordinarily can't stand anything Disney produces. Kim Possible is much smarter and wittier than the usual Disney fare, to the point that even the obligatory adorable animal - Rufus, the naked mole-rat - actually manages not to be insipidly annoying, but often highly useful to the plot and rather endearing. The music is catchy and bright, the action fast, the dialogue clever and snappy. Think Buffy the Vampire Slayer as Lara Croft doing Alias, jazz-it-up a couple notches and make it more family-friendly, and you've pretty much got this series in a nutshell.
But enough. Stop reading, and go introduce yourself to Kim Possible and her absurdly insane adversaries. You'll be hooked, quick. And just in time for Christmas, to boot!
Even though K.P. is a great show,it's not my favorite (Cartoon
Network's ''The Grim Adventures Of Billy And Mandy'' is my big
time fave)but SUPER nonetheless!
''So not the drama!''
