Dipper and Mabel Pines spend the summer at their great uncle's tourist trap, The Mystery Shack. They think it's just going to be another usual summer, until mysterious things begin occurring all over town.
When the freaky-fab guys and ghouls of Monster High get wrongly accused of Halloween high jinx by a group of normies, things get spooky. But can they prove their innocence in time for a spooktacular celebration?
"Teamo Supremo" are made up of pre-pubescent heroes Captain Crandall, Rope Girl and Skate Lad, who fight crime with the knowledge and cooperation of the well-meaning but not totally competent leader of the city, while at the same time having to go to school and live normal little child lives...
Sounds familiar? Yep, this is basically a copy of Cartoon Network's "The Powerpuff Girls," though more sexually and ethnically mixed (Skate Lad/Hector is of Mexican derivation, for instance). The trouble is, while it has the pre-teen hero motif it lacks Bubbles and Co's Japanese-influenced animation style; genuinely sharp scripts; villains as entertaining as Him, Mojo Jojo or even Princess; heroes with the proper personalities that Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup have; and, of course, the narrator. (Although I do give the show points for the voice of Martin Mull as the governor.)
It's still watchable, but go for the real thing if you have a choice.
