Western Animation / Cosmic Quantum Ray


Cosmic Quantum Ray is a zany comedy-action-adventure series brings the strange, dark, freaky corners of the universe to Earth teenager Robbie Shipton.

Tropes the show includes:

  • And Knowing Is Half the Battle: At the end of every episode, Bucketworth explains a scientific concept to Robbie in a segment called "Bucketworth's Quantum Universe".
  • Disappeared Dad: Robbie's dad is never seen or mentioned.
  • Easily Detachable Robot Parts: In one episode, Bucketworth is separated into three parts and Team Quantum has to put him back together before Contessa De Worm turns the earth's coal supply into diamonds.
  • "Freaky Friday" Flip / Voices Are Mental: In "Cosmic Quantum Robbie," Quantum Ray and Robbie switch bodies (and voices) when they make contact with a P-brane. Later in the episode, the other characters switch bodies as well.
  • The Glasses Come Off: Robbie loses his glasses when he fights alongside Team Quantum.
  • High-Class Glass: Bucketworth has a monocle that's as functional as it is fashionable.
  • Losing Your Head: Quantum Ray in almost every episode. It also happens to Bucketworth, but less frequently.
  • Meaningful Name: Atee and Geecey are named after the corresponding nitrogen bases in DNA, adenine & thymine and guanine & cytosine.
  • Robot Me: In the episode "Me Robot," Bucketworth builds a robot version of Robbie as his stand-in at school.
  • Tempting Fate: Robbie, when he thought he was going to have a normal day.
