Teamo Supremo are three kids, consisting of their leader- Captain
Crandall, Rope Girl and Skate Lad, all with their own battlecry (buza!
chika! woopa!) and outfit and moves. They work for the governor, Kevin,
and were recruited after wishing to be heroes and playing at that game.
They lead normal lives as well, and have family and school duties, but
most of the action takes place away from school fighting villains. The
villains all have rather unique and singular traits, such as Mister
Vague and his men who never seem to know what their plans are but act
anyway. From an evil robot to a wicked baron the three have to
encounter them and stop their evil, and often strange, plans to gain
power, take revenge etc.
The animation itself is quite nice and smooth, but the style appears to be simple on purpose. The backgrounds have overlapping colour and the buildings seem futuristic. The music is quite nice, and the show isn't too bad altogether, although the style isn't my favourite.
The plots are almost always nonsensical and ridiculous, but after all this is a cartoon and one can't blame them for that. However this would not be in the same rank as Fillmore! or Pepper Ann.
Ah yes, the show pays an homage to the sixties. A decade where seriousness goes out the window. With films like CASINO ROYALE and shows like the sixties BATMAN with Adam West. The characters look like other cartoon characters. Captain Crandal is a Superman spoof that resembles Dexter (of DEXTER'S LABORATORY) with a Charlie Brown voice, Rope-Girl is a Wonder Woman spoof that looks like Kimmi (from the RUGRATS) or Ike (from SOUTH PARK) but not a Powerpuff Girl, and Skate-Lad is a latinoSuper Dave spoof that looks like Cartman (from SOUTH PARK). If you look at the chief (voiced by the great Joe Alaskey) he looks like something off from an old Hannah Barbera Cartoon made circa 1960's. Cartoon characters have catch-phrases. These trio of small superheroes do. "Buh-Zah" "Chi-Kah", Wuh-Pah". They fight a lot of wacky-looking villians. The Birthday Bandit (voiced by Mark Hamill of STAR WARS fame) will remind anyone who grew up in the 1970's of that villain under the same name in a Spiderman skit from THE ELECTRIC COMPANY. Yes there was a Spiderman skit in THE ELECTRIC COMPANY where he fights The Birthday Bandit (this one steals birthday cakes). The voice actors were great. Th coolest (and funniest) episode was "Attack of the Stuffed Stuff" which showed E.G. Daily as a voice of a villianess. Great voice actress isn't she. Admit it! She and Charlie Adler are the coolest. Anyway, this is NOT a POWERPUFF GIRLS rip-off (if you want a ripp-off watch A LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN which is due out this summer rumors have it that it's an X-MEN rip-off). But this show is good.
Rather or not you're a fan of The Powerpuff Girls (and I'm talking about the original 1998-2005 series, that is), there's no denying it as an example of how a superhero series is done right. Teamo Supremo came out just 4 years after the lil' puffs and tried to cash in on their success. I'll admit, I kinda liked this show, back in the day but looking back, it was nothing more than a poor man's Powerpuff Girls. I mean it wasn't awful like Teen Titans Go, but it was still a pretty poor quality cartoon. Kudos for Disney trying to make an animated superhero series in their pre-Marvel days. It's just too bad it turned out to be a mess. I do hope my animated superhero series for Disney XD is much better than this.
I felt that it was necessary to comment on this show after reading the last commentator's review (in which he bashed this show just because it didn't have the flare of the "Powerpuff Girls" which is now sickening to watch for me since the movie). This show is actually as good as "The Powerpuff Girls", and I don't care what anybody says. The pre-teen superhero trio of Captain Crandall, Rope Girl, and Skate Lad are a cool group that don't rely on super powers to beat their enemies (which is cool.), and Governor Kevin is a pretty intresting character (better than the annoying mayor on "Powerpuff Girls".). The bottom line is this show is great, and I hope it's on for a long time.
I saw this show a summer ago on ABC, and before the show started there was an announcement saying, "The following is an educational program." Then the show started. But what was so educational about the show? And the answer was it focused on problems kids faced everyday. Temptation, meeting a new friend, conquering fear, telling the truth, prejudice etc. (sort of like FAT ALBERT or HEY ARNOLD!). The plot involves a superhero element, where a cartoon dog dresses up as a boy and goes to school, and shows his brain power. Leonard discovers it in the pilot, "Muttimorphisis". Classical music is in the background at times. Ian Waziloski (voiced by great voice actor Rob Paulsen) will gross you out and make you laugh. Nathan Lane does the voice of the talking blue dog, Scott Leadready, and Spot Helperman. Like other T.V. shows, there are jokes and gags, and sometimes musical numbers, plus references to movies and T.V. shows. I saw one episode that spoofed CARRIE (1976), and homage to MATILDA (1996). Parents, let your kids watch this show, than bombard them with PBS. Warning: on Friday, September 5th 2003, there will be a film adaptation of this show called TEACHER'S PET THE MOVIE. 75 minutes. I praise this film will do well at the box office. HEY ARNOLD: THE MOVIE and THE POWERPUFF GIRLS MOVIE flopped in the summer of 2002. THE RUGRATS MOVIE did well. I hope this does well along with the upcoming SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS: THE MOVIE and THE SIMPSONS MOVIE. Parents, show your kids this cartoon show, and take them to TEACHER'S PET: THE MOVIE.
I think its kind dumb. i mean they annoying "Kiya" or somthing like that. I seen better kiddy shows than this. Its kinda sad when u think about it. this lil 3rd graders protecting ur town. AH!! and the drawing are bad! they suck!
"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
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.
