'''''Stripperella''''' (2003-2004) was an adult-oriented, animated television series created by StanLee as a parody of the {{superhero}} and SpyFiction genres. It aired on the newly-created Spike TV network in a short-lived AdultSwim-style line-up that included ''WesternAnimation/GaryTheRat'', and ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' (both the classic episodes and the revived [and reviled] ''Adult Party Cartoon'' episodes).

The main character (voiced by and [[InkSuitActor based on Pamela Anderson]]) is a stripper named Erotica Jones, who secretly works as crimefighting superheroine/secret agent Stripperella. The series lasted 13 episodes before being cancelled due to CreativeDifferences, and a lawsuit filed by a stripper who said it was all her idea.

!!'''Tropes in this series include:'''

* ActionGirl
* AlphaBitch: Kat
* ArtShift: After episode 6, Stripperella and a few other characters look different. Her Franchise/{{Batman}}-esque [[IrislessEyeMaskOfMystery blank-eye mask]] was replaced by one that showed her eyes. And her assets were made even more...exceptional.
* AllMenArePerverts: The series seemed to delight in situations that would lampshade this. One example was in the episode "The Wrath of Klinko", where the villian was hypnotizing people to commit crimes with an enhanced copy machine. When the first victim is in jail, Agent 69 orders him to grab her tits, which can act as lie detectors. She learns that he's telling the truth, but has some difficulty making him release her boobs.
* BatSignal: The vibrating belly-button ring.
* TheBigBoard / RuleOfCool: Spoofed when the wall behind the Chief retracts to reveal a small cheap TV set. He then admits they spent all their money on that fancy moving wall.
* BeehiveHairdo: Pushy Galore
* BlondesAreEvil: Pushy Galore
* BondVillainStupidity[=/=]DeathTrap
* BreastExpansion
* ButtMonkey: Kevin tends to get hurt... a lot. Or sent to jail. Or lose all of his money. Or be robbed of the money he just won. Or being threatened by a rival strip club owner. Poor guy has it rough.
* CastingGag: Pretty much the whole point of having PamelaAnderson as the main character, what with her small animal rights speeches that pop in here and there.
* CatchPhrase: The Chief; "Thank God I'm not [noun, verb or adjective relative to situation here]!"
** Stripperella saying that she is impervious to all temperatures and weather conditions.
* CelebrityToons
* CleavageWindow
* CutLexLuthorACheck: Spoofed with El Cheapo, who plans elaborate crimes designed to get him the world's largest fake diamond, or a stash of copper bars worth $16.
* DoubleEntendre: Loads of 'em. What? Does this come as a ''SHOCK?''
* EasyAmnesia: In one episode, rival stripper Kat repeatedly discovers Erotica's SecretIdentity, but constantly loses her memory of the event because she [Kat] keeps getting hit in the head.
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: In one episode, Stripperella was a guest in a talk show, where the hostess, Sally Rose, talks about how hot Stripperella is and hints on wanting girl-on-girl sex. The camera gets a closer shot this, hoping it would happen.
** Later in the episode, a woman is at the strip club, fighting amongst the men when Erotica throws a piece of her clothes.
* EvilLaugh: MadDoctor Cesarean gives one of these, but stops when he realizes he's in a waiting room full of gaping onlookers.
* {{Fanservice}}: Though full frontal nudity shots were blurred out on Spike TV. They are on [[TooHotForTV the DVD]], though.
* FanDisservice: Queen Clitoris is rather, well, unattractive. Not that you would know that from her name and silhouette.
** Chief Stroganoff isn't good looking either. Once Stripperella is visibly squicked when he briefs her in a bathrobe, and does the ''Film/BasicInstinct'' thing while complaining about El Cheapo "and those two hairy nuts of his".
* FunWithAcronyms: Stripperella's favourite charity '''A'''nimals '''N'''eed '''U'''niversal '''S'''upport, which she plugs at every opportunity.
* HairTriggerTemper: Small Fry is annoyed by the mere suggestion of a short joke, whether it's intended or not.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Stripperella's brother, fellow superhero [[ChippendalesDancers Chipperella]].
* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Kevin doesn't realize Kat isn't a nice girl.
* HurricaneOfPuns: Happens whenever Stripperella battles anyone with a suggestive name, such as Queen Clitoris or a giant beaver.
* IncredibleShrinkingMan: Vertically-challenged villain Small Fry intends to shrink everyone else so he'll be the biggest person on Earth.
* InkSuitActor: Erotica/Stripperella looks exactly like Pamela Anderson, even possessing her tattoos.
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] a few times. Most notably when KidRock and PamelaAnderson get a cameo in one episode, when Erotica asks Kid Rock if he thinks she looks like Pamela Anderson. He says he doesn't see a resemblance, then states that Pamela looks like Stripperella, and that if they make a Stripperella TV show that Pamela should play the part.
* ItsBeenDone: A MadScientist has spent [[GoMadFromTheIsolation years in the basement of headquarters]] inventing devices like the cordless phone, but no-one is willing to tell him they're already widespread.
* {{Ladyella}}
* LawyerFriendlyCameo: The series did this more than few times.
* LineOfSightName: Agent 69 occasionally used this to come up with aliases.
-->'''Stripperella:''' "My last name? (sees lamp) Lamp... (sees chair) chair... (sees apartment wall) wall... ner... stien."
* MultiarmedAndDangerous: In "Everybody Loves Pushy", it's revealed that [[spoiler:model turned supervillainess Pushy Galore has grafted two extra sets of arms onto her sides. Stripperella even jokingly calls her "Octo-Pushy" at this revelation]].
* NerdsAreVirgins: At least the members of her tech crew ''not'' voiced by StanLee are suspected to be this, because they are ridiculously geeky and always trying to find ways of making prosthetics of 69's butt.
** Special Agent 14 ''could'' be considered a subversion of this trope, because he has a hot wife and a picture of them having sex was accidentally inserted into the slide projector that was being used to give Stripperella mission intel. He ''could'' be, but he's more developmentally disabled than nerdy.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: The series was full of this.
* NoGuyWantsAnAmazon[=/=]MyGirlIsNotASlut: Stripperella can't get a boyfriend because men either won't accept her as a stripper, or won't accept her as a secret crimefighting superheroine.
** One episode has her going out with a musician and trying to hide she's a stripper. The episode ends with him turning out to be a terrible singer, and she tells him she's a stripper.
* NotDistractedByTheSexy: Varies according to the situation.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Persephone tends to adopt a new accent from episode to episode.
* OurWerebeastsAreDifferent: "Curse of the Were-Beaver"
* PaperThinDisguise: While Striperella's costume can be considered to reasonably hide her identity, her utter carelessness in preserving her double identity and switching between both certainly counts. An extreme case is her asking people to turn around, then changing into her Stripperella outfit, ''while all of them are locked inside a very tight space''. Usually [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by character wondering where Erotica went.
* PetHomosexual: The gay bartender at the Tender Loins, Erotica's workplace.
* PlotTailoredToTheParty: Lampshaded and subverted. When given a Penny Disintegrator, Stripperella comments [[ChekhovsGun how all the gadgets end up strangely useful]]. Later, while being drowned in a glass bottle filled with pennies, she tries the disintegrater, only to find out that it can only disintegrate one penny every ten minutes. The thing that does save her life? [[spoiler:The 15-pound "cordless phone" that the elderly scientist spent the last 15 years perfecting.]]
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: "Look out crime. I'm gonna to take a bite out of you. But...not in a way you're gonna find...pleasurable."
** "Evil-Doers, prepare to become Evil-Don'ters!"
** Said inside a museum of the worlds biggest objects:
-->"Time to deliver the world's biggest ass kicking."
** Said to a villain looking at a fashion award ceremony on TV:
-->'''Stripperella:''' "And the award for best dressed kick goes to... ME"
-->'''Villain:''' "Best dressed kick?"
-->'''Stripperella:''' "Well, I wanted to say something really clever and relevant to the whole fashion awards thing, and that's all I could think of on such short notice."
* PunnyName: The series is full of this, such as when Stripperella is working undercover as an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent ("Kathy Teria"), a criminal ("Robin Stuff"), IntrepidReporter ("April Mayjune") and a nun ("Sister Mary Hadalamb"). Not to mention her boss, Chief Stroganoff.
* {{Revenge}}: Dr. Cesarean's motive for making supermodels fat is because beautiful women have spurned him all his life. And because his mother was a model who ran off when he was 5. And because his promising career as a model was ruined when he became horribly disfigured in a modelling accident. Oh, and his grandparents were killed by models. He hates heights too, but you can't harm heights.
** Subverted with [[spoiler:Professor Cranium]], who wants to build the giant model volcano that will destroy the city because hey, it's just something he's always wanted to do.
* RockMeAsmodeus: The first episode featured a stereotypical satanic heavy metal band.
* RunningGag: Erotica constantly blurts out blatant clues that she is Stripperella and then covers by making it seem like a slip of the tongue.
** The Chief usually ends up in extremely weird scenarios where, after explaining the reason to Stripperella, ends up having her correct him on his information which leads to exchanges like this;
-->''The Chief is posing for nude pictures for his wife on Valentine's Day.''
-->'''Stripperella:''' "Uh, Chief. Valentine's Day was two months ago."
-->'''Chief:''' "Ah right. [[CatchPhrase Thank God I'm not]] married."
** Throughout the entire series Persephone never holds a constant accent. She switches it every episode she's in, and sometimes twice in the same episode. It's even lampshaded a couple oftimes.
* ShoePhone: Stripperella's extravagant blond hair can [[PrehensileHair serve as a parachute]]. She also has laser lipstick, a tongue-stud camera, nipples that can cut glass and pumps that enable her to climb up walls. In a parody of Q gadgets, Stripperella is inevitably given [[ChekhovsGun a device that turns out to be just what she needs]] to get herself out of a trap, but turns out to be not quite so useful in practice. An example is when the tech group gives Stripperella a Penny Disintegrator, and she is later trapped in a jar being filled with pennies. Unfortunately, it takes a full minute to disintegrate a single penny, so she ends up having to just break the jar.
* SheFu: Stripperella's martial arts technique uses moves from her erotic dance routine.
* StockSuperpowers[=/=]SuperSenses: Stripperella is impervious to all temperatures and weather conditions, has extraordinary strength and reflexes, as well as above-average intelligence (e.g., she notices incredibly obvious things to which everyone else is oblivious).
* StockingFiller: Pushy Galore wears garters.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Obviously.
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: "I'm Stripperella, and I'm here! Not... that... I was here already... because I wasn't."
* TechnicalPacifist: Parodied in "Curse of the Were-Beaver". Stripperella has no problem with beating up people, but loves furry animals. This causes problems when she has to stop a man who keeps mutating into a [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever giant rampaging beaver]].
* TerribleIntervieweesMontage: A brief one in episode 2, when the club is hiring new strippers.
* TerribleTrio: El Cheapo and his two hoods who, due to the stinginess of their boss, have to share the same gun. Which has only five bullets.
* [[WellDoneSonGuy "Well Done, Daughter" Gal]]: Giselle's relationship with her father.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: In "Curse of the Were-Beaver", Stripperella jostles Shaw the beaver hunter to stop him from killing the were-beaver, and he falls off the roller-coaster scaffolding, landing (off-camera) with a splat and several disgusted-looking onlookers. And... we never see what happened to him, so either he landed in something, or [[MoralDissonance the heroine killed a man for doing his job]].
* WhatMeasureIsANonCute: Probably intentional: while Stripperella regularly mentions animal rights and refuses to harm them, she does not hesitate to stomp a giant crab and freeze another (implied to be the mother) into little ice cubes.
-->'''Stripperella''': I hate crabs.
* WhyAmITicking: In "Beauty of the Obese, Part 2", Stripperella has to save [[PunnyName En]][[BuxomisBetter orma]] Ray, a supermodel that has been booby-trapped. Literally. [[DontExplainTheJoke As in,]] [[BuxomisBetter her breasts]] [[DontExplainTheJoke are ticking time bombs]].
