''Alienators: Evolution Continues'' (a.k.a. ''Evolution: The Animated Series'' for British audiences) was an animated series that ran from 2001 to 2002 on Creator/FoxKids, based on the 2001 movie ''Film/{{Evolution}}''. The story picks up after the events of the film, following the continuing adventures of Ira Kane, Harry Block, and Wayne Grey, and also introduces a fourth hero in the form of a Blue Beret soldier named Lt. Lucy Mai and a TeamPet named Gassie, as well as the BigBad known as Scopes, leader of an army of StarfishAliens called the Genus.
* AliensSpeakingEnglish: In one of the early episodes Ira listened to a recording of Scopes' roars and suddenly deduced that Scopes was in fact speaking in binary ([[HollywoodScience or something]]). He then [[HollywoodScience translated it into English to reveal some generic megalomaniacal threats.]] The next time Scopes appeared, he'd lost his inner mouth/ring of teeth and was suddenly speaking English.
* AnimatedAdaptation
* BigBad: Scopes. Whenever it was destroyed, another Scopes would be generated and, as a side-effect of [[GeneticMemory sharing the experiences and memories of their predecessors]], it started [[ItCanThink becoming]] [[SuddenlyVoiced intelligent]].
* LesCollaborateurs: [[GeneralRipper General Granger]] as part of his [[TyrantTakesTheHelm New World Order]] scheme teams up with the Genus. Scopes however planned to have him RewardedAsATraitorDeserves.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: For some reason ([[FollowTheLeader cough]] [[PowerRangers cough]]) our heroes need brightly colored jumpsuits here.
* DaChief: General Woodman and Allison Reed.
* ExactWords: In one episode Harry and Ira are in a military jail with Lucy as the guard. General Granger orders her to not let "those clowns" out. Since Harry and Ira are not "clowns" she lets them out after trolling them for a minute.
* FamilyFriendlyFirearms: Apparently, the police and US military had switched wholesale to energy weapons after the events of the movie.
* {{Flanderization}}: Wayne and Allison, where Wayne is younger, no longer a skirt chaser, is much more of a jock, and has his surname changed from "Grey" to "Green." Allison, meanwhile, is far less clumsy, and her relationship with Ira is non-existent.
* GeneticMemory: The Genus has this as part of a HiveMind basis with Scopes acting as a sort of HiveQueen.
* HowWeGotHere: "To Carthage Then I Came", which begins with Lucy carrying an unconcious Wayne through the deserts of Tunisia, and then she narrates a flashback on what happened to them, Ira, Harry, and Gassie earlier that day, before returning to the climax.
* MeaningfulName: Scopes.
** Also, Gassie, who is a GassHole.
* RealityEnsues: At the end of the movie, Wayne was dubbed a honorary fireman by the governor, but in the three-part pilot episode "Survival", Wayne claims that he is still a "fireman in training." Just because you're an "honorary" fireman doesn't meaning your training's finished.
* SelfDestructMechanism: The Center for Impending Disasters has one in the form a NeutronBomb due to the fact that the lab used to be use for studying viruses and need to prevent an viral outbreak.
* SpiritualSuccessor (no pun intended): To ''WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters''.
* TeamPet: Gassie.
* [[WeaponisedCar Weaponised Vehicle]]: The team's ride, an old fire engine Wayne found and refitted [[Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}} Ecto-1]] style.
