"Totally Spies" is a French-American/Canadian Action-Comedy-Cartoon produced by the French company Marathon Production. This anime-influenced cartoon series debuted on TV year 2001.
This series can also be called as a "Charlie Angel's" rip-off mainly aimed to children.
Again I give you a SPOILER WARNING!!! Just to make sure readers don't read some spoilers by accident.
Welcome to Beverly Hills, and meet Sam, Clover and Alex.
These girls might look like just your typical movie-schoolgirls, as much of their everyday life mostly are used on stuff like fashion, boys and getting plagued by their annoying rival Mandy. But in seconds they turn into super spies by getting "woohped" by their boss agent Jerry, the leader of WOOHP, a secret organization for agents and spies. They all get to know some "world problem", and get some spectacular gadgets which look like ordinary things like a pen, bubblegum, mascara, hair dryer, etc. And there they go to investigate this "problem" in any place on the Earth, get eventually caught by either the villain or the henchmen, and get loose in order to stop the villain. And this happens in every single episode, unless there is some part-2-and-3-episodes.
END OF EPISODE SPOILERS!!!
And this series happened to be a worldwide success...
This was one the series I often watched when I had Jetix on my cable-TV, this together with other series like "Pokemon", "Digimon" and "W.I.T.C.H." And then I say as good as too often, as I happened to watch several of the same episodes again and again. And please don't ask my why, but it simply happened when I still waited for new episodes to come up.
However "Totally Spies" seemed to try to mimic the famous anime genre (Japanese animation) by using some of the typical "anime effects", but somehow fails to do it. The girls in the series might look cute, but sometimes get somewhat annoying; Alex tend to say some random joke which isn't funny at once; Clover tend to get too obsessed with fashion and boys sometimes...I can go on in all eternity if I wanted, but I don't think so. Yes, I have watched too much "Totally Spies" for years ago, but decided to drop the fifth season and so on, because I have better things to watch than this.
If anybody is interested, season 6 have already debuted in France and Netherlands summer 2013. So I think the fans of this series can have something to look forward to. ;-)
