    Brother

    Totally spies really existed, right

    It wasn't just a weird hallucination I had, right

    Because I just have the weirdest sense that none of this is real and I'm actually experiencing a massive hallucination as I die of an aneurysm

    It would make more sense than totally spies being real, I think

    If the last thing I think about before I die is Totally Spies I am going to be kind of miffed about how things turned out

    You see lots of things, out there in the swamp at night. Some of them might even be real. But the Bugboy? That's just plain impossible.

    I am certain that the last thing I think about will be dumb

    I don't know what it will be

    But I am certain that it will be stupid

    I really want to post this on Facebook because I'm having a giggle fit right now but I'm certain no one will get it.

    It's probably going to be Pokemon for me

    BugBoy used Calm Mind!

    It's super-effective.

    The only Canadian cartoons I can think of weren't french-canadian, as far as I know (Like The Raccoons.

    Holy hell, Totally Spies aired until 2014?

    I stopped watching it when I was in grade school, and I assumed it died a quiet death not long afterward

    That is, in all honesty, one of the weirder things I've learned recently

    The weirdest thing about the show is that it seemed like the writers for at least the first season wanted to appeal to the DeviantArt fetishist crowd: Clover became super muscular in one episode, got really fat in another, and even turned into a furry. That HAD to be intentional.
    thing is, what we tend to think of as "internet fetishes" are also just bog standard cartoon plots

    TS was just the first time people really took notice of it

    Maybe...the fact that the character designs were more realistic looking than most Western cartoons might have had something to do with it.

    I still like to imagine the writer's room had a dry erase board with the following jotted down:

    Totally Spies Episode Ideas
    - Amazons
    - Furry
    - BBW
    - something not fetishy
    - I mean Jesus Christ guys

    "Something not fetishy" is crossed out, like 5 or 6 times on that board though.

    I thought it might be too sad so that's why I had the joke spoiler at the end

    Sorry bro

    I guess I've been kinda quiet, yeah

    I'm always watching though

    Just like a fly or other insect of your choice on the wall

    I think A Town Called Panic counts as an animated film, and I loved that. I should rewatch it.

    I watched a bunch of Ladybug and that show is real cute you guys and that theme song is a real earworm. (Also these early episodes are basically Sailor Moon But In France, which seems like a thing that should have been mentioned.)

    Well this thread has inspired me to check out an episode of Ladybug, an episode of Code Lyoko, AND several episodes of Wakfu. Woo. They were all fun!

    I can see why Wakfu has such a following - it's got a lot of charm. Also the main character can make portals like the ones in the Portal games and he uses them in combat and this is awesome

    One episode rubbed me the wrong way tho - "The Ugly Pageant". I mean someone stop me if I'm being too handwringy over here but the episode struck me as misogynistic and queerphobic and gross. In the episode the gang encounter a cadre of "ugly" princesses and every member of the gang responds to their "ugliness" with shock and revulsion. One princess is covered in boils, one has a beard, and one is hairy and muscular. Later the old man character disguises himself as an "ugly" princess by putting on makeup and a dress and again everyone is repulsed.

    Anyway I really could've done without that episode but I think I'm gonna try sticking with the series regardless.

    Did anyone here watch Martin Mystery? I think it was by the same animation studio as Totally Spies.

    I did, i mentioned it earlier.

    i liked Marathon for Totally Spies and martin Mystery, but the space Rangers academy show (Team Galaxy?) was a complete dud for me.

    ALSO! Apparently they were behind "Kassai and Leuk" which I knew as "Samba et Leuk". That show was also pretty cool, i had forgotten about it.

    Man, i wanna make several effortposts, but i am too lazy.
