I had to look up this "British import" on IMDb because the info in TV Guide was almost non-existent. It just started running on a Nickelodeon cable channel in the U.S. My 2 kids (8 & 11) and I watched it today, and it was the best animated family show we've seen in awhile. Some of the jokes are too sophisticated for the 8-year-old but my 11-year-old gets all the spy movie references and some of the British humor. (He's a huge fan of the James Bond films.) Name Changes Daily is one of the funniest running gags.
I was trying to figure out who the voice actors were because several were familiar, though only one has an IMDb photo. I wasn't surprised to find out that Anita's voice was the same as Wendy in some of the Bob the Builder episodes. I'm sure there are many voice actors in the U.K., just like the U.S., who are in multiple shows (hooray for Clancy Brown and Tim Curry). It also turns out that one actor is in Corneil & Bernie, but I wouldn't have been surprised if Tim Curry had shown up somewhere.
We can't wait till next week's episode!
