A French-Australian animated series following the adventures of {{Kid Detective}}s Sally Bollywood and Doowee [=McAdam=], who together form the private detective agency SBI (Sally Bollywood Investigations).
----
!!''Sally Bollywood'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* AcquiredPoisonImmunity: In "The Delayed Action Chilli Pepper", everyone except Sally comes down with a stomach illness. It turns out the school lunch contained an extra strong pepper, and Mrs. Apu explains that Sally is immune due to being raised on it her whole life.
* {{Adorkable}}: Doowee. Sally can also fall under this sometimes.
* AdultsAreUseless: Usually played straight. Averted with Harry Bollywood; his daughter has to get her talent from ''some''where, after all.
* AerithAndBob: Sally and... ''Doowee''? What?
** Also, for their classmates; there are kids with normal names like Jeremy, Sam, Bob, Cassie, Albert, Betty, Ernest, etc. and then you have kids with names like Kevina, Darshi, Alma, Devendra, Achmed, Erna, Nirmala, Svetlana, Vanille...the list goes on.
* AesopAmnesia: No matter how many times the "never jump to conclusions" rule is brought up it never sinks in with Sally.
* AffectionateNickname: Mrs. Apu often addresses Sally with things like "my little mongoose" or "my little poppadom".
* AmbidextrousSprite: The elephant on Sally's top keeps changing direction.
* AmoralAttorney: In "Call My Lawyer" Bob hires the kid equivalent of this to defend him when he's obviously guilty.
* AnAesop
* BareYourMidriff: Sally
* BetterManhandleTheMurderWeapon: In "Caught Red Handed", Sally finds a can of spray paint on the ground and picks it up, not knowing it was used to vandalize a bench.
* TheBGrade: In "Cockcroach Capers" Harry bans Sally from doing more detective work just because she got a C+ in a test.
* BornDetective: Sally
* TheBully: "Big" Bob Coprani.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: The janitor (Mr. Cubbings) was a bad guy in the pilot.
* ChaseScene: OncePerEpisode.
* ChekhovsGun: If Doowee has a new invention for an episode, it will most likely be used in some way to solve the plot.
* ClearMyName: Both the aforementioned "Caught Red Handed" (for both Sally & Doowee) and "Double Trouble" (for just Sally)
* CoolOldLady: Mrs. Apu
* CostumeCopycat: In "Halloween Heist" one of the culprits stole Sally's costume and sari while she was changing in the girls' room to impersonate her and left her own costume so Sally would have no choice but to wear it.
* CultureEqualsCostume: Her name is "{{Bollywood}}", and she looks the part.
* DaChief: Sally, Harry and the Principal kind of take turns at his role.
* DisguisedInDrag: Doowee at one point in "The Egg War". He isn't pleased about it.
* ElaborateUniversityHigh
* EverybodyDoTheEndlessLoop
* FairPlayWhodunnit: It's usually pretty easy to figure out who the culprit is before the unmasking.
* GadgeteerGenius: Doowee
* HollywoodHacking: Doowee can hack into anything within seconds by tapping random keys.
* IdiosyncraticWipes
* INeverSaidItWasPoison: In "The Party", Sally and Doowee are investgating who gatecrashed a party. Whilst interrogating a known-gatecrasher, the gatecrasher points that it ''couldn't'' have been him and his buddies, since they don't wear masks when they gatecrash. It's then pointed out that no-one had mentioned that the gatecrashers were wearing masks, and a ChaseScene ensues.
* ItsPersonal: Sally is particularly aggressive on cases that personally affect her or Doowee.
* JustAStupidAccent: In the English dub, characters are given random accents [[note]] For example, Sally, despite being Indian, speaks with a very pronounced British accent [[/note]]. This is most jarring in the case of Mr. Cubbings the janitor, who was given an Australian accent, but one episode revealed he's from Canada. His son Stefan has an appropriate Canadian accent.
* LatexPerfection: The masks Doowee's "photomorpher" creates in "Double Trouble." Unfortunately, that just makes it easier to frame Sally.
* LethalChef: Harry
* LikeBrotherAndSister: There are no hints that Sally and Doowee might become more than friends. Except perhaps for a possible ShipTease with the LostLoveMontage in "SOS Saris".
** When Doowee reads Sally's diary at the end of "Liz's Diary," it actually refers to him as being like a brother to her.
* LotusPosition: Sally sometimes does this when she needs to meditate and think.
* MissingMom: What happened to Sally's mother is never explained. All we learn about her mother is she was an Indian dancer.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: In "the White Bear," the S.B.I helps out the son of local rapper Fluff Daddy. Nuff said.
* OhMyGods: In the pilot, Sally used stereotypical Indian expressions like "By the many arms of Vishnu!" For the main series this trait was given to Mrs. Apu.
* PapaWolf: Harry Bollywood
* PrimAndProperBun: Sally has one in "Operation Nerd" when going undercover as a nerd.
* ProBonoBarter: Sally and Dowee are still on the level where they're accepting payment in candy (or in one case, in math lessons). All their clients are, after all, kids of their own age or younger.
* RaceAgainstTheClock: A self-imposed example. The SBI guarantees all cases will be solved within 24 hours.
* ReverseWhodunnit: In "Call My Lawyer" the SBI (and the audience) know Bob is the culprit from the start, but the problem is proving it.
* SnoopingLittleKid
* SpannerInTheWorks: Sally's cousin Bouleh in "Cousin Bouleh" messes up the SBI's plans several times. It gets to the point where they wonder if he's intentionally sabotaging the investigation. [[spoiler: He's not, in case you were wondering]].
* SupremeChef: Mrs. Apu, but only when it comes to Indian food. In "Bling Bling" she tries her hand at French cuisine and keeps making mistakes.
* SympatheticCriminal: Some of the culprits turn out to have a sympathetic motive.
* TooCleverByHalf: Sally has a big ego and often puts her foot in her mouth by falsely accusing a suspect only to be proven wrong.
* TurnInYourBadge: In "Cockroach Capers" Sally's father bans her from detective work, but she disobeys him to work on a case.
* UngratefulBastard: Some of the people who hire the S.B.I (i.e. Kevina & Liz) are quite nasty towards the detectives they need to help them out. The latter was so bad in fact, Sally actually considered dropping her case.
* [[WhereTheHellIsSpringfield Where the Hell is Cosmopolis?]]: Quite likely in England; the characters often watch cricket, they're on the metric system, and tend to use British phrases like "maths," & "holiday."
* WidowWoman: Mrs. Apu may be this. The "Mrs." in her name is the only indication given that she may have been married once.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Literally in the case of Darshi, Zoe, Nirmala (although more of a blue-green), Betty, & Alma. Also some characters have purple hair (Sally, Bob, Sam, Kevina), green (Gia, Jasmine), and even pink (Cassie).
