Kim Possible: The Villain Files (May 15/05)

Featuring the exploits of the titular teenaged spy, Kim Possible is an engaging, surprisingly funny little program. This is one of those rare shows that'll easily keep both children and adults entertained, without sacrificing anything in the process.

The first episode on the DVD is entitled "Blush" and revolves around the diabolical Dr. Drakken's new plan to vanquish Kim - he'll infect her with a substance that will slowly cause the teenager to vanish every time she is embarrassed. This sends Kim's faithful sidekick, Ron, to a remote jungle in search of an antidote, but Kim finds herself in jeopardy of disappearing for good after accepting a date with her biggest crush, Josh. The situation is exacerbated by a pair of embarrassment ninjas dispatched by Dr. Drakken, though Kim quickly proves resourceful enough to outwit them.

Up next is "Animal Attraction," in which one of Kim's most fearsome enemies - the aptly named Senor Senior, Sr - is ejected from a club for billionaires. This doesn't sit well with the super-villain, and he decides to exact his revenge by throwing the club into a deep freeze. Meanwhile, Kim finds herself curiously intrigued by a fad called Animology, in which a person's personality is reflected by a color and animal (ie Kim is a Blue Fox).

In "Number One," Kim finds herself confronted with three problems: 1) A fellow cheerleader is unhappy with the way Kim has been running things and decides that she ought to be the head cheerleader; 2) Kim is assigned a new partner for her current mission, an obnoxious and arrogant agent named Will Do; 3) Kim and Will Do must stop a crazed Scotsman named Duff Killigan from turning the world into one giant golf course.

In "Showdown at the Crooked D," Dr. Drakken returns with a plan that'll dumb down the world's scientists (he's going to have them wear self-described "silly hats," the effective of which is fairly self-explanatory). This coincides with Kim's family trip to visit her Uncle, who just happens to be a cowboy that's invented a robotic horse.

 

About the DVD: Buena Vista Home Entertainment presents all four episodes with crisp full-frame transfers, along with a music video by LMNT, a game that's strictly for the kids, and a series of bonus sneak peeks.
