Wonderful, entertaining role model.

"I'll write this review with the parent in mind, and leave the plots and story lines to someone else.Kim Possible is an intelligent, science-loving high school student with an adventurous side. If I may be permitted to assert my parental instincts here, I would like to add that I think kids get way too much weird stuff in cartoons. Kim Possible, on the other hand, is a good role model for her studious habits and intelligent interests. My children love watching this cartoon (lots of laughs and bumbling bad guys), but I also enjoy it, and have no problem watching it with them. This would make a good Christmas or birthday present for the cartoon-watchers in your family."
So Not the Clutter

"How nice to be able to view these episodes without all the distracting visual clutter of broadcast television: no omnipresent logo, no crawling announcements, and of course no loud commercials. There are 4 episodes here, not 3 ("Attack of the Killer Bebes"; "Downhill"; "Partners"; and series premiere "Crush") and the full-length theme song. The previously unseen episode is as good as any of the others (largely because it stars Dr. Drakken and the fabulous Shego). Even if you've been taping the clever show, you'll want this DVD."
Disney Does Buffy Does Lara Croft Does Alias

"If you're hip and flip and love a good laugh, you're already taping this popular series, but you could do worse than treat yourself to this colorful handful of engaging episodes and standard promo extras. It may be packaged for kids, but like the 1960s T.V. Batman, it's really made for adults - in fact, one of the series episodes (not on this DVD) features Adam West in a takeoff of his original Batman role, in the very funny "The Fearless Ferret."It's hard to imagine anyone who hasn't yet encountered Kim Possible, but for those who haven't and are seeking a clue, here goes: Kim is "your average basic girl, out to save the world," the adorable green-eyed, redheaded high school cheerleader daughter of a rocket scientist and a brain surgeon, with a jealous bimbo rival (Pep-Squad wannabe-leader Bonnie), two troublesome twin younger brothers, and helpful friends (Ron Stoppable and his naked mole-rat "Rufus," and never-leaves-his-screen computer geek Wade). She has her own website, which has made her something of a superhero in spite of herself. Her adversaries are idiot mad-scientists and the like, such as the two featured in this DVD, D. N. Annie and Dr. Drakken. Drakken, especially, is a comical cad, a failed NASA robotics expert who happens to be Kim's father's arch-rival, though it takes him a long time to figure out that Kim, despite sharing the same rare last name as Dr. Possible, is related. His "three blue BeBe's," seen in this collection, are among the most memorable "henchmen" in the entire series. His usual assistant, Shego - infinitely smarter than the mad, blue-skinned doctor, himself - is almost Kim's own dark alter-ego, a fashion-conscious snob with super-athletic abilities and glow-in-the-dark green eyes and hands.This is one of my favorite shows, which is saying a lot, since I ordinarily can't stand anything Disney produces. Kim Possible is much smarter and wittier than the usual Disney fare, to the point that even the obligatory adorable animal - Rufus, the naked mole-rat - actually manages not to be insipidly annoying, but often highly useful to the plot and rather endearing. The music is catchy and bright, the action fast, the dialogue clever and snappy. Think Buffy the Vampire Slayer as Lara Croft doing Alias, jazz-it-up a couple notches and make it more family-friendly, and you've pretty much got this series in a nutshell.But enough. Stop reading, and go introduce yourself to Kim Possible and her absurdly insane adversaries. You'll be hooked, quick. And just in time for Christmas, to boot!"Boo-yah!""
KP: The Anti-Princess

"I let my 5-year-old watch Kim Possible, because KP's one of the few strong role models for girls. The animated violence is usually kept to kung-fu style fighting (usually Kim v. Shego). The dialog is often clever and insightful, and it's good to see that the characters often have real world problems (like having your Mom and Dad along for a field trip). If you are a parent, try to catch KP on ABC (Saturday A.M.) to get an idea of what to expect."
