A Canadian AnimatedSeries about two orphaned teenage spies who fight international crime while training at the Academy (a school for spies). Trained by the mysterious 'Al' who is the director of the academy, they fight an assorted network of supervillains who have various plots to take over the world. Delilah Devonshire and her partner Julius Chevalier are polar opposites; she is very goal oriented and WomenAreWiser while he is laidback, HotBlooded and more spontaneous. However they are also the best operatives in the academy. Fifty two episodes have been aired all though it is not yet known if more are planned.
