''Three Delivery'' (2008) is an animated series appearing on Creator/{{Nicktoons}} Network, and produced as a joint collaboration with Creator/AnimationCollective and [=FatKat=] Studios.

It centers on the staff of the Chinese restaurant Wu's Garden: Calvin Wu, his mother Mei Hua (who is mostly referred to as Nana), Calvin's son Barney, and the three delivery kids Sue, Sid and Tobey, who have more to do than deliver takeout around Chinatown. Years ago, Kong Li unleashed the powers of a magical cookbook. The pages -- which contain magical recipes -- were scattered all over Chinatown. A spell was placed on the area by Mei Hua to keep the worst effects confined to Chinatown and to protect the rest of the world. Nana and the Three Delivery trio are in a race to get the magical recipe pages before Kong Li does, and endangers the world.

The title of the show is a clever pun on the facts that the trio delivers takeout to {{Muggles}} and magic cookbook pages to Nana, and that their cook, Barney, is overly excited about the fact that Wu's Restaurant has ''free'' delivery.

* AudibleBlink: Mostly in reaction to the weird/bizarre things Tobey says and does.
* BadassBookworm: Sue, who studies when they're not fighting or working, and applies what she learns.
* BadassNormal: The trio. They have no special powers; they're just trained in martial arts.
* BareYourMidriff: Sue.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Sid discovers this after drinking a recipe-powered smoothie.
* BrotherSisterTeam: Sue and Sid are siblings.
* TheBigGuy: Mr. Wu, although calling him, Nana and the trio a FiveManBand would be stretching things.
* BigEater: Again, Mr. Wu.
* ChekhovsGun
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: All three.
* CoolOldLady; Nana, who trained Sid, Sue, and Tobey to fight evil.
* CrazyPrepared: Nana has given the kids bikes outfitted with things they may need in the course of their cookbook quest.

* TheDitz: Tobey is the one with a blond streak, both figuratively and literally.
* EstablishingShot: Wu's Garden in particular.

* EvilLaugh: Kong Li does this when he has the chance.
* FriendlyLocalChinatown: Well, friendly until the weird magic stuff starts happening.
* GreatBigBookOfEverything: The cookbook of spells.
* GoofyPrintUnderwear
* IdiosyncraticWipes: The scene transitions feature Chinese characters and one of the three doing martial arts poses.
* LethalChef: Though arguably, anybody who gets a recipe from the magical cookbook could be so.
* LeParkour
* LukeIMightBeYourFather: In the series finale, Kong Li tells Tobey that he is his father. However, Nana says that she doesn't know for sure and that Kong Li only thinks that Tobey is his son.
* MartialArtsAndCrafts
* {{Muggles}}: Barney [and possibly his father] are unaware of Nana's mission with the three delivery kids.
* NeverMessWithGranny: Mei Hua is a sweet old lady who has significant martial arts prowess, and is quite capable of using it when the situation calls for it.
* OpeningNarration: describing the show's premise; Nana and Kong Li are former mage classmates. The latter turned to evil, and the former trained the titular trio to fight him and protect Chinatown and the world.

* ParentalAbandonment: Sue, Sid and Tobey are all orphans.
** DisappearedDad: Nana is Calvin's mother, but there's no sign of his father. Given that his mother is a CoolOldLady, it's probably a safe assumption he has died.
