''Minoriteam'' was a low-budget animated series that first aired on Creator/AdultSwim in 2005 and ran [[ShortRunners for a single season.]]

The story revolves around [[FiveTokenBand five super heroes]], consisting of Dr. Wang, El Jefe, Jewcano, Fasto, and Non-Stop, each based on an racial or ethnic stereotype, who join up to fight discimination. Their main opponents are [[OddlySmallOrganization The White Shadow]], headed by the White Shadow, a man with the Illuminati pyramid as a head. The show only lasted one year, but being a racially charged show, was crammed with racial tropes, played straight, subverted, and averted. All members of the team, with the exception of Dr. Wang, have non-stereotypical civilian identities.
