A Canadian cartoon about a middle school girl named Betty Barrett who doubles as a Galactic Guardian, fighting evil on the other side of the universe while no one notices her lengthy absence. The series ran for 78 episodes over 3 seasons, premiering on September 6, 2004 and ending on January 29, 2008.

Season 3 (Subtitle Mission: Earth) mixes things up by having the Galactic Guardian headquarters relocated underneath Betty's hometown.

The show has also reappeared on American airwaves on Creator/TheHub (formerly Discovery Kids) before it was taken off of air, as of 2011.

Now has a [[Characters/AtomicBetty characters page]].

!!This series provides examples of:

* AbusiveParents: This was implied at toward Max Sr. toward Maximus and later on, Max Sr. Sr. toward both of them.
* AchillesHeel: Maximus can't swim, and ''really'' hates water.
%%* ActionGirl
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Averted in some episodes of Season 3. The trope is otherwise played straight.
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Sparky's mom, Zulia, has the tendency to date villains.
%%* AllPartOfTheShow: In "When Worlds Collide"
%%* AlphaBitch: Penelope Lang
%%* AnAesop
%%* AnIcePerson: Iciclia.
%%* BadassAdorable: Betty.
* BadassFamily: Betty and her maternal grandparents are galactic guardians; her uncle from "Rodeo Robots" is a cowboy; and her parents, while almost never seen fighting, have shown Greenbeard's gang what they're made of. And they thought they were fighting against actors.
%%* BadFuture: "The Future Is Now!"
* TheBadGuyWins: Subverted in the Season 3 premiere. [[spoiler:Galactic Guardian HQ is successfully destroyed, but Maximus is [[PyrrhicVictory robbed of the satisfaction of being the one to push the button]]. And they just build a new HQ on Earth anyway.]]
* BerserkButton: Max Sr. apparently hates being called "worthless" by his own father and would have nearly beaten up his younger self if Maximus didn't interfere.
** Also, when Maximus can't sleep due to too much noise, he goes on a destructive rampage.
* BetweenMyLegs: Odd for a children's show, but this is how we're introduced to Pontifidora, along with the image page for the episode.
%%* BigBad: Maximus I.Q.
* BigEater:
** Sparky and his mom. (His species has four stomachs, apparently.)
** Penelope's [[FatGirl fat friend]] Megan is often shown eating, though they rarely show her actually pigging out.
* BigLittleBrother: Infantor's little brother is much bigger than him.
%%* BlackBestFriend: Regeena
* BrainlessBeauty: [=DeGill=]'s two (or three since Mission: Earth) groupies.
* BrilliantButLazy: Koreena prefers to build robots to do her work for her and when she was training in the the Galactic Guardian academy she cheated off Betty's notes.
* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: Megan has a big M on her sweater, possibly so viewers don't get her and Sarah's names mixed up.
%%* BumblingDad
* ButNotTooForeign: Betty, Penelope and Sarah are only partially Asian.
%%* ButtMonkey: Poor, poor Noah.
* CanadaEh: Betty's home town is called Moose Jaw Heights
** One of the first indicators that this isn't an American cartoon is that Betty's school has a Canadian flag flying from the flagpole.
%%* CaptainColorbeard: Greenbeard.
* CaptivityHarmonica: This was partially seen during one part of "Like Father, Like Scum" with Max Sr. (hidden in the shadows at that point) playing it before the Berillum Boys bust Max Sr. out of his prison.
* CardCarryingVillain: Maximus.
** In "The Pre-Teen Queen of Outer Space" when the Drones need a new queen they intentionally seek out the most evil female in the universe.
* CatsAreMean: Played straight with Purrsy, Koreena, Maximus and his family, but the episode "Noah's Bark" shows that Maximus's race is not AlwaysChaoticEvil.
* CatsHateWater: Maximus can't swim, and ''really'' hates water, almost to the point of it being an AchillesHeel to him.
%%* ChildhoodFriendRomance: Unlucky Noah has a crush on Betty, who instead favors Chaz and Dylan.
%%* ChristmasEpisode: "The No-L 9" which doubles as a MusicalEpisode.
%%** There's also the first season episodes "Jingle Brawls" and "Toy Historyia".

** Penelope's cat Poopsie appeared in the Season 1 episode "Power Arrangers" and was never seen again. In the Season 2 episode "The Market" Penelope was seen visiting [[BusCrash his grave]].
** Paloma (and Juanita) at the beginning of Season 3 (no one exactly knew why she was written out), save for a cameo in "Love Bites".
** Dylan disappeared near the end of Season 2 and was replaced by Penelope's brother Chaz in Season 3. Since Penelope would no longer have a rival for Dylan's affections, there was no longer a need for him, so the second to last episode before the Season 2 finale has Penelope falling out with Dylan after spending an entire episode getting humiliated in her efforts to get with him while in "No-Hit Wonders", he was last seen in the dance competition and gets disqualified when he loses in the dance.
** Beatrixo had an unnamed pet cat in her first appearance, but it was never seen again after that.
* ClarkKenting: Sparky wouldn't recognize The Scribe as "Milton Scrivener" until the scribe took off his mask and put on "Milton"'s glasses.
%%* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: The Betty Clones.
%%* CombatStilettos
* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: The Empress from "Battle of the Bots" is captive by Maximus on the planet of Crushdon, though when she sees her rescuers along with robots, she begins complaining about them along with her allergies. Granted, she goes back with Maximus while the reward is simply a letter stating that her people don't want her because she's a [[RichBitch Snobby Empress]] anyway.
%%* CoolCat: The cats (alien or not) are shown to be this.
%%* CoolOldLady: Beatrixo

* EarthIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse: Much to Betty's dismay.

* EnemyMine: Betty teamed up with Maximus against a common foe in "Takes One to Know One".

%%* FatAndSkinny: Megan and Sarah respectively

* FlexingThoseNonBiceps: In "Beach Blanket Betty" Noah does the forearms-turn-into-limp-noodles variant.
* ForgottenBirthday: In "Cat Fight" Betty's mom thinks her husband forgot Purrsy's birthday, though it's played more like a ForgottenAnniversary scenario.
* FountainOfYouth: The Youthinator in "Bold Age" where Maximus' grandfather, Max Sr. Sr., used it to make people old while elderly like himself (and Penelope's grandmother) are made young.
* FreudianExcuse: it's heavily implied that [[AbusiveParents parental abuse]] [[ItRunsInTheFamily runs in Maximus's family]] which explains why they're all evil.

* FutureBadass: Betty, Noah, and their human friends during the BadFuture episode. Even Penelope, given the right impetus.

* [[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend He Is Not My Boyfriend]]: Betty about Noah in "No Space Like Home".
* HiddenDepths: In "The Market" Penelope is shown crying at her cat's grave.
** In "The No-L 9" Penelope spends the entire episode decorating her house in a ridiculous amount of decorations so she can win a contest, but when Beatrixo wins instead due to light display created by the titular constellation, instead of being mad that she lost she's filled with the Christmas spirit just like everyone else watching, and the first thing she does is hug her father.
%%* HollywoodToneDeaf: Penelope in "Circus Sparkimus".
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Sparky's mother has a terrible habit of dating villains.
* HotSkittyOnWailordAction: Paloma and Pandora's parents are a human size CatGirl and a demon about 10 times that size.
* HumanoidFemaleAnimal: [=DeGill=] and the Rockettes are members of the same fish-like species, but the Rockettes are much more humanoid than [=DeGill=].
* {{Identical Grand|son}}daughter: In "Bold Age" when Penelope was aged up and her grandmother was aged down they each ended up looking like the other, except the aged down grandmother has thicker thighs than Penelope.
* InformedAbility / InformedFlaw: According to the episode "The Pre-Teen Queen of Outer Space" Penelope is the most evil female in the universe.
* InJoke / GeniusBonus for anyone not familiar with Canada: There is a real Moose Jaw located in Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan is Canada's prairieland, very open and very flat. The idea of there being a Moose Jaw ''Heights'' is just silly.
* InterspeciesRomance: A one-sided example in "Love Bites" when Betty's dad falls in love with Purrsy after getting bitten by an alien bug.

* IWillWaitForYou: In "The No-L 9" we learn Beatrixo has been waiting 30 years for her husband Jimmy to return after he went missing in action.

* JerkassRealization: X5 when Sparky is hit with a "stupefactor ray". X5 spent all episode mocking Sparky's intelligence, and is upset to see him reduced to an actual idiot.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Penelope can be this at times.
%%* JumpedAtTheCall: Noah, at the end of "No Space Like Home"
* [[KavorkaMan Kavorka Woman]]: Sparky's mother Zulia has managed to score at least three different guys who are genuinely attracted to her... [[WhatDoesSheSeeInHim for some reason]].
* KidsShouldntWatchHorrorFilms: In "Power Arrangers" when Betty is staying with Penelope and her friends for the night, they watch a monster movie that scares Penelope and her friends witless while it doesn't faze Betty a bit.
%%* LargeHam[=/=]EvilIsHammy: Maximus I.Q.
* LeanAndMean: Whenever Maximus is shown without clothes he appears to be very skinny.
* LethalChef: In "The No-L Nine" Beatrixo's Christmas cake is shown to be so hard it has to be cut with a blow torch, and when Betty's mom asked her if she wanted to stay at her grandmother's place longer she only agreed as long as she didn't have to eat any more of it.
* LegoGenetics: How Queen Penelobee was created.
** Maximus created the Betty clones by combining Betty's DNA with the DNA of three different alien women.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Penelope has a classy orchestral theme that plays every time she appears.
* LetsGetDangerous: In "Aarrgh...It Be 'Olidays!" Betty's parents help defeat Greenbeard and his crew, though they think they're just actors.
* LikableVillain: Incidentally, there are some villains that are portrayed as likable to the fans.
* MagicSkirt: Betty, in an episode where she swings by her knees on a trapeze.
%%* {{Masquerade}}

* MissingMom: Principal Peterson seems to be Regeena's only parent.
%%* MisterMuffykins: Purrsy

%%* MrExposition: Admiral [=DeGill=]
* MultipleHeadCase: In "Spliced" Penelope and her posse get spliced together, becoming a three-headed mutant.
* MyBelovedSmother: Betty's mom treats Purrsy like a second child. Whether he loves it or hates it depends on the episode.
* MyHovercraftIsFullOfEels: This appears to happen with Sparky in "If the Shoe Fits" when he attempts to compliment the leader of an alien race after they lose their UniversalTranslator, but once they get it back they find Sparky's translation was correct. It's just that these aliens take compliments as insults and vice versa.
* NaiveNewcomer: Noah after he joins the Galactic Guardians in the third season.
* NeverMessWithGranny: Betty's grandma is a former Galactic Guardian.
* NeverMyFault: Koreena blames Betty for her being kicked out of the academy when it was her cheating off Betty's notes.
* [[NeverTrustATrailer Never Trust a Title Card]]: The title card for "Trading Spaces" shows Penelope in a Galactic Guardian uniform. The episode has nothing to do with Penelope joining the Galactic Guardians nor does it have anything to do with Penelope wanting to try on a similar outfit to Betty's.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: The voice of Betty's dad is based on Creator/JimmyStewart.
** The voice of Penelope's dad is an impression of [[Series/GilligansIsland Mr. Howell]], even often dressing like him.
* NoNameGiven: Betty and her family's last name is never mentioned. Even in a school assembly, the principal calls her just 'Betty'. The closest we get to learning her last name is when Sparky refers to Betty's mother as 'Mrs. B'

** Betty's parents were never given first names.
* NonActionGuy: Noah. Starts to move away from this during Season 3.
* NoteToSelf: Future!Penelope tries to do this so she can learn Betty's secret earlier. It doesn't work, as her past self just mistakes it for a prank.
* NotSoDifferent: She can get pretty mean when she's getting revenge on [[TheRival Penelope]]. Not to mention [[SeasonalRot thanks to season three]], the writers reduced Betty into a Wangst character and made her a bit of a jerk to her friends (excluding the ones from outer space), including to Noah.
* OmnicidalManiac: Maximus. He [[ForTheEvulz loves]] [[EarthShatteringKaboom destroying planets]].
%%* OneWingedAngel: Maximus gets this in "The Amulet of Shangra-La-Di-Dah" temporarily.
%%* PettingZooPeople
* PinchMe: In "The Way of the Weiner" when Penelope comes across a mob of angry townspeople who hate Betty, not knowing [[EasyImpersonation why they hate her]], she can't believe her eyes and cheerfully joins them.

%%* PositiveDiscrimination: Paloma.

* ReadTheFreakingManual: In "Night of the [=DeGilla=] Monster" [=DeGill=] clones himself, but the clone turns out evil because he didn't read the manual.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Not quite a speech, but Maximus and Max Sr. both give out their reasons on why they don't want Max Sr. Sr., after he is snatched by them, to continue running things and why they don't want him around for too long.
* RememberTheNewGuy: Season 3 introduces Penelope's brother Chaz and Principal Peterson's daughter Regeena. Chaz's previous absence is handwaved by saying he was at boarding school.

* RiseOfZitboy: In "Pimplepalooza" tiny pimple-like aliens that need host bodies to survive infect the faces of everyone in Moose Jaw.

%%* [[RubberMan Rubber Girl]]: Betty's blue clone.
%%* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale
* ScreensAreCameras: The Comm Links work this way.
* ShapeshifterModeLock: In "The Way of the Wiener" the Betty Clones stay in her superpowered forms for unexplained reasons.
* ShoutOut: In the segment, Galactic Idol, Maximus tries singing three times and out of two of those times, he is dressed like [[Music/GunsNRoses Slash]] and Music/{{Prince}}.
** In "Case of the Missing Kanushu", ''Literature/TheLordofTheRings'' is referenced when DeGill tries to stop the red wasp from passing by, he almost succeeds in breaking the bridge, though due to him small and using a weaker wasp part, it does not go well. However, [[spoiler:he is still grabbed by the wasp crashing through the bridge and dragged to the bottom with Sparky shouting for him. Granted he does survive though.]]
** Both "Evil Idol" and "Galactic Idol" are also a shout out to [[Series/AmericanIdol another idol show]]
** The empress in "Battle of the Bots" has the hairstyle of [[Franchise/StarWars Leia]].
** The title, "Power Arrangers", is an allusion to the series, ''Franchise/PowerRangers''.
%%* SmallNameBigEgo: Atomic Roger.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: The ''Mission: Earth'' episodes include non-canon one-minute shorts.
* SpaceDoesNotWorkThatWay: In "Queen for a Day" we have this exchange.
-->'''General Bee:''' Is this a suitable world, your highness?\\
* Shows Queen Penelobee a picture of Earth.*\\
'''Queen Penelobee:''' [[InsignificantLittleBluePlanet No, you fool, none of these worlds are...]]\\
[[RecordNeedleScratch WHIRRRP!!]]\\
'''Queen Penelobee:''' Wait, that smell... [[{{Beat}} *beat*]] Honey!\\

* SureLetsGoWithThat: Betty lost her diary with notes of her missions as a Galactic Guardian. When Penelope found and read the diary, she assumed the entries were all made up and Betty allowed her to believe that.
** Betty thought Noah's poem to her was written by Duncan to Penelope. Noah let her think she was right.
%%* ThickLineAnimation
* ThisIsNoTimeForKnitting: In "Galactic Guardians No More", Betty announces that it is time to start baking while they're under fire from numerous enemy ships in their own ship which had been previously decommissioned as a military vessel and turned into a traveling pie shop. Of course, Sparky and X-5 question her timing, but this is part of her plan to save the day: she uses the dough as improvised ammunition for the ship's torpedo launcher, then lures the enemies close to the sun to bake the dough into a debilitating mass.
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: [=DeGill=] is often seen with three fish girl groupies called the Rockettes who are much taller than he is.

* UnsettlingGenderReveal: Kind of downplayed, as this is a kids' show, but in "No Business Like Snow Business" Betty gets on the boys' hockey team unbeknownst to Penelope who mistakes her for a guy and starts putting the moves on her until she takes her helmet off.
%%* VillainSong: "Virtuoso of Insanity"
* TheVillainSucksSong "This Cat Is Coming After You" on the album, mainly for the Betty vocals dialogue
* VocalEvolution: Compare Penelope's voice in the first season to the later seasons. In the later seasons it's far more annoying.
* TheVoiceless: Penelope's Asian friend Sarah never talks.
** Or at least she use to in the first two seasons before Mission: Earth decided to make her mute.
** In the Mission: Earth episode "Girl Power" she had two lines.
** [=DeGill=]'s groupies. Most of the time they just giggle like bimbos, though the green-skinned redhead gets a line in "A Hard Day's Fight".
%%* VoluntaryShapeshifter: The Chameleon.
%%* WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld
* WatchOutForThatTree: Betty to Noah in "Beach Blanket Betty" while they were surfing.
* WeirdnessCensor: In "Wedding Crashers" Auntie Matter kidnaps Grampa Jim right in front of Betty's parents' eyes. But while they are shocked by the kidnapping and start to worry, the fact that an alien did it is completely ignored.
** "Takes One to Know One" {{avert|edTrope}}s this. When Paloma gets beamed into a spaceship, Duncan freaks out.
** In "The Pre-Teen Queen of Outer Space" Penelope doesn't find it frightening that she was kidnapped by giant alien bees; {{justified|Trope}} given that she thought it was a dream.
*** In "Queen For a Day" Penelope doesn't find it odd someone looks and acts just like her. Somewhat {{justified|Trope}} given that she thought it was a video game.
** In "Spliced" when Penelope and her friends are spliced together into a three-headed mutant they don't seem to notice. Averted with Regeena, who reacts with either confusion or horror at the spliced mutants she sees.
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim[=/=]StatingTheSimpleSolution: Maximus IQ once disguised a robot to pose as a long lost galactic guardian and lure Betty to a trap. Since the robot had an explosive device, Minimus suggested they could simply detonate it and finish off Betty but Maximus wanted to [[EvilGloating make sure Betty knew he's the reason of her demise]]. Then, as he had her dangling over a pool with deadly fish, Minimus suggested they'd just cut the rope but Maximus wanted to taunt her.
* WithFriendsLikeThese: In the episode where everyone thinks the end of the world is coming, Megan and Sarah turn on Penelope, stealing her jewerly and knocking her to the ground. At the end of the episode they're back to being practically her servants.
** In "Girl Power" upon finding out Regeena is the principal's daughter she makes Regeena her new best friend and ditches Megan and Sarah.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Sparky is younger than his voice makes out. He's actually a kid.
%%* ZettaiRyouiki
* {{Zonk}}: Parodied, as the secret "Project Zonk" that the crew has to protect in an episode ends up only being [[spoiler:taco sauce. Yes. Taco sauce]].
