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".
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Chip Monahan when he was the squirrel king.
- 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.
- Pulling Themselves Together: Quantum Ray. It doesn't take much for his arms to come off, really.
- 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.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: The worm people are terrified of pudding.
