''Lloyd in Space'' was an animated television series, running from February 2001 to February 2004. A total of 40 episodes in four seasons.

Living far in the future, shortly after the end of World War Nine, Lloyd Nebulon is a green-skinned alien (of the [[PunnyName Verdigrean]] race) with strange ears and a single antenna sticking from his head. Lloyd lives in the Intrepidville Space Station along with his telekinetic and telepathic little sister, Francine, and his mother, Commander Norah Li Nebulon, the Head of Intrepidville. Lloyd's friends are Eddie R. Horton (a ginger-haired American teenage human), Kurt Blobberts (an enormous purple blob with a single eyeball and simple intelligence, of a species known as the Blobullons), and Douglas [=McNoggin=] ([[{{Cephalothorax}} a giant brain with arms, feet, eyes and a mouth]], of a species known as the Cerebellians).

From the creators of ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' who also did their reboot of ''WesternAnimation/PoundPuppies''.
!!!Contains examples of

* ActionMom: Norah has her moments
** Best exemplified when the boys got into a tangle with some space pirates. She shows up and announces herself and the bad to the bone pirates ''[[OhCrap freak out.]]''
** Deconstructed in one episode where Nora meets up with an old male friend and goes out on a date with him. Lloyd watches in horror and disgust as his mom suddenly and seemingly goes from being a badass to a giggling GirlyGirl and theorizes that her date must be an evil mind-controlling monster in disguise (he was half-right). At the end of the episode, Nora addresses Lloyd's [[RealWomenDontWearDresses concerns]] and tells him even {{Action Mom}}s like her need to unwind and have fun sometimes.
%%* {{Adorkable}}: Lloyd, Douglas, and Kurt
%%* AnAesop
%%* AlienHair
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Every character speaks English, although a couple of side characters communicate through growls. Still there's no mention of learning alien languages.
* AlliterativeName: Lloyd's mom, '''N'''orah '''N'''ebulon.
* AlphaBitch: Brittani fits the trope to a t. Occasionally her HiddenDepths are shown to make her a LovableAlphaBitch too. Notably in an episode where Lloyd and Francine have a FreakyFridayFlip, Britanni is friendly to Francine-in-Lloyd because the latter gives her compliments.
* AmbiguousGender: Done in one episode with a new student. Everyone takes bets on what gender they are, but their interests and presentation are so ambiguous they eventually have to ask. Turns out they're part of a species that chooses their sex when they hit puberty. Cue everyone trying to tell them which to pick. Eventually they decide to keep their choice secret.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Francine takes the cake with this one, often using her powers to antagonise Lloyd and his friends.
* BadlyBatteredBabysitter: Lloyd, but he does get even in "Babysitter Lloyd".
* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: The characters are regularly depicted wearing bubble helmets in space, but the helmets aren't attached to anything and they still go out in space wearing their street clothes. Kurt and Douglas don't even wear the bubble helmets.
* BecomingTheMask: [[spoiler: Brittany loved Lloyd from childhood but couldn't speak about it since first she wasn't supposed to be interested in boys and secondly she became popular]]. Lloyd hopes that one day she'll be able to properly admit it to herself.
* BetaBitch: Megan is Brittani's BFF and is usually seen at her side
* BittersweetEnding: ''Love Beam No 9'' reveals that [[spoiler: Britanni actually did have a crush on Lloyd for years but had to hide it, and has only been able to admit it thanks to the Love Beam. Lloyd reverses it to let her be herself, hoping that one day she'll be able to admit her true feelings.]]
** In ''Nerd From Beyond The Stars'', Lloyd and a grown Larvel apologise to each other for screwing each other over the week before and Larvel tells Lloyd to be happy he still has a few more years of being a kid left. Though it's left unsaid, given how fast Larvel's species ages and his dad is nowhere to be seen, it's likely Larvel doesn't have a lot longer to live.
%%* BizarreAlienBiology
* BigSisterBully: Inverted with Francine, who uses her power of telekinesis to torment Lloyd.
%%* BrainsAndBrawn: Kurtlas
* BrattyHalfPint: Francine, again. The fact that she has telekinetic powers only undermines her brattiness. She does seem to have standards and never uses them on her mother at least.
* TheCheerleader: Brittany is the AlphaBitch and her default outfit is a cheerleading uniform.
* ClassTrip: The episode where Lloyd's class goes to "Wormhole National Park".
%%* CreepyChild: Francine
* CuteMonsterGirl: Several. Brittany (blue skin and six arms but still cute), Violet (yellow skin and pink hair), Francine of course and Cindy's nice head.
* DiggingYourselfDeeper: After Lloyd and his friends accidentally take off in Brock Rockman's ship, he tries to shift the blame to Boomer, to which Nora asks Brock if he ''really'' just left the keys to his classified starship with a ''civilian gas station attendant''.
%%* DisappearedDad: Lloyd's dad.
* DisproportionateRetribution: In the HalloweenEpisode, Lloyd and his friends found themselves stuck in a BadFuture where the space station's been decimated from an attack by an alien monster. The monster in question could cause people to turn into monsters themselves from a bite or scratch. Lloyd remains the only one unharmed while all his friends are subsequently turned and start hunting him. [[spoiler: They spend over sixty years stuck on the station before Lloyd, now an old man, figures out a way to go home. It then turned out the whole thing was a trick Francine created with her mental abilities. Why? Because she got scared when Lloyd let her go into a fun house by herself and wouldn't take her trick-or-treating.]]
* DistaffCounterpart: Most of the boys have a girl of their own species nearly identical to them. Lloyd and Eddie are the only exceptions.
* {{Expy}}:
** Brittany acts like (and is voiced by the same girl as) [[WesternAnimation/{{Recess}} Ashley A.]]
** Lou 2000, Station's backup system, is basically a PG-rated [[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} Bender]]. Both are voiced by Creator/JohnDimaggio.
* FantasticRacism: "The Big Feud". What starts off as an innocent school research project on one's cultural heritage ends up reigniting age-old resentment between the Blobulons (Kurt's race) and the Cerebellians (Douglas's race).
%%* FieryRedhead: Eddie
* FreakyFridayFlip: Combined with an aversion of VoicesAreMental in "Lloyd Changes His Mind".
* FeudEpisode: "The Big Feud" touches on a historical feud between Douglas and Kurt's species that temporarily drives them apart.
* GentleGiant: Kurt is the biggest character in the series but he's also the gentlest.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In 'Nerd Beyond The Stars', when Lloyd meets up with a now-adult Larvel, Lloyd apologises for pranking him the week before and Larvel apologises for ditching the group when the popular kids took interest in him. Lloyd then asks, "So when you and Brittani hung out after school...did you-?" and though Larvel pretends he can't remember middleschool much now he's an adult, Lloyd was clearly trying to find out how far he went with Britanni.
* TheGhost: Boomer's boss, who might not even exist.
* GrandeDame: The fat rich lady in "Pet Wars".
* GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe: Norah is green-skinned like Lloyd and is drawn in very attractive ways. It's implied that a few characters have crushes on her.
* AGoodNameForARockBand: In one episode, Boomer and the gang (minus Kurt) came up with a lot of names for possible bands.
-->'''Lloyd:''' Later, Boomer!\\
'''Boomer:''' ''(rubbing his chin)'' Later Boomer?
* HoldYourHippogriffs: The months in Intrepidville. For example Chebuary, Grogust, Floontober.
* HumansAreBastards: In "Pet Wars", the fat rich lady alien dislikes Eddie for teasing her pet.
-->'''Lloyd:''' You know those humans.
%%* {{Jerkass}}: The popular crowd.
%%** Eddie, sometimes.
%%*** Francine as well.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Cindy's mean head. They do share the same heart, after all.
%%* KidsAreCruel:
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens: Somewhat played straight, no Blobullon senior citizens have been shown, but it is shown that Blobullons are born large and get larger growing up when young but become small as adults grow up, hence why, even as a 1st grade kid, Kurt is like a giant (though he seems more big boned as a teemager), and Kurt's parents are shorter than most of the teenagers and other adults in the series.
* MamaBear: Norah
--->'''Norah''': [[CrowningMomentofHeartwarming ''I'll turn this universe upside-down to find you, Lloyd.'']]
* MotorMouth: It's most likely due to bad editing of the episodes, but Douglas and Lloyd ''never'' seem to take a breather between sentences, not once.
* MultipleHeadCase: Cindy. Lloyd wants to take only the nice one to the dance.
* NeverHeardThatOneBefore - An alien worm who works at Wormhole National Park gets a lot of jokes about him being a worm working at a wormhole.
-->'''Jake:''' Do you have to be a worm to work at the Wormhole National Park?\\
'''Worm:''' ''(sighs)'' No.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Francine's powers are usually limited to levitation and mind-reading, but in "Big Brother Kurt" she suddenly has the ability to change people's appearances. This ability never comes up in any other episode. Possibly justified in that she only did it to Kurt, possibly meaning it only works on his race.
* {{Oonerspism}}: "''Wack to burk, everyone! I mean...back to work.''"
* PubertySuperpower:
** Inverted with Francine. Norah mentions several times that her psychic powers will go away as she gets older.
** But played straight with Lloyd, though only temporary, and a case of BlessedWithSuck.
* PrimeTimeCartoon: After Creator/OneSaturdayMorning went defunct in 2002 and gave the show the boot, it became this on Creator/ToonDisney.
* RealWomenDontWearDresses: Defied by Nora when Lloyd and his friends start getting worried that she's acting more feminine. She reminds them that she is still a woman in addition to a commander.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Lloyd gives a very well-deserved one to Brittani in ''Incident At Luna Vista'' when he calls her out for her selfish attitude.
* RebelPrince: [[spoiler:Boomer ran away to get away from that life, and he doesn't want to be king.]]
* RecycledInSpace: ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' [[InSpace IN SPACE!!]]
* RhymesOnADime: Eddie's relatives have names that rhyme. Eddie never [[LampshadeHanging noticed it before]].
** Eddie himself has a tendency to rhyme.
* RobotBuddy: Station. Although he appears to be installed in every apartment, he seems to be a close friend of Lloyd's and helps out on many of his schemes.
* RoboRomance: Station meets a girl named Midge on the Internet, but lies about his identity as an organic being to be more attractive. When he meets Midge, she's insecure that Station isn't who he said he was, until Station revealed himself to be an eye on a long rope. Midge then reveals herself to be a similar device used for military intelligence who posed as an organic being to be better compatible with the person she thought Station was.
* SecretlyWealthy: Boomer, the station mechanic, is actually a prince, much to his dismay when his secret comes out.
* ShoutOut: Station's eye is similar to [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey HAL 9000]]
** Lloyd's [[Franchise/StarWars dream]] on his 13th birthday in the first episode.
* ShrinkingViolet: A girl called Violet, who Lloyd meets at a slumber party. She's a lot shyer than the other girls and has trouble talking to them. Douglas refers to her as "lonely Violet" in another episode.
%%* TheSlacker: Boomer
* SmallNameBigEgo:
** Also Lloyd, in the episode where he turns thirteen and thinks that this not only makes him a miniature adult, but also that he doesn't have to do schoolwork and stuff like that.
** The doctor in "Francine's Power Trip". Despite citing several years of medical school, she diagnoses Francine as definitely having a virus that will make her lose her powers for 24 hours. Then when she turns out to be wrong she flip-flops and says Francine has a different disease that makes her lose her powers permanently, once again citing her years of medical school to prove she's never wrong. Of course that diagnosis was wrong too.
* SpaceIsNoisy: Francine has no trouble overhearing Lloyd and his friends talking about her through a window ''from outside the space station'', but then again, she can read minds. There's still no excuse how characters can talk to each other in space wearing nothing but bubble helmets.
* SuperpowerfulGenetics: Young Verdigrean girls like Francine have mind-reading and telekinesis powers.
* ThemeNaming: When Lloyd meets Eddie's relatives, their names all rhyme.
* TokenHuman: Eddie is the token human character
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Cindy is a two-headed girl where one mean head is aggressive and very tomboyish, while the other head is sweet and more feminine.
%%* TotallyRadical: Boomer
* {{Tsundere}}: [[spoiler:Brittany is Type A Tsundere for Lloyd, as revealed in "Love Beam #9". She has never been able to reveal her feelings due to her popularity.]]
%%* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture
* UncannyFamilyResemblance: Eddie's relatives, in addition to having names that rhyme.
%%* UnusualEuphemism
* ValleyGirl: Brittany and Megan speak in stereotypical Valley Girl accents, use expressions such as 'like' and 'totally' a lot and are slightly ditzy.
* WholePlotReference:
** The "Kurtlas" episode is clearly based on the children's book ''Literature/FreakTheMighty''.
** The episode "Boomer's Secret Life" (where the kids find out that Boomer is secretly the prince of his home planet, but ran away from home for a chance at a normal life) is a comedic retelling of the classic ''Series/TwilightZone'' episode "The Fugitive".
