Western Animation / Miss BG

Miss BG (2005-2008) is a computer-animated series, based on the Gudule et les bébés French children's book series published by Hachette-Jeunesse, authored by Fanny Joly and illustrated by Roser Capdevila.

The series centers on a young, energetic girl named Bella Gloria Baxter, known better as "BG", and her adventures with her younger brother George and her best friends, Alex and Gad, and on-and-off rival, Brittany-Ann.

Tropes the show include:

  • Adorkable: Kayla at times.
  • All-CGI Cartoon
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: George is sometimes this towards BG, albeit unintentionally.
  • Black Bead Eyes: All the characters. Though each of them are different colored.
  • Black Best Friend: Gad to BG.
  • Control Freak: Brittany-Ann has shades of this, often dictating entire projects and bossing around her friends, primarily Kayla.
  • Cool Big Sis: BG likes to be this to George.
    • Brittany-Ann has also tried to be this to George, most notably in "Adopted Sister".
  • Friendly Enemy:
    • Brittany-Ann towards BG. The two are typically portrayed as at odds with one another, but are willing to help one another if the other is in need, and in some episodes the two are on purely good terms. They're even referred to as being friends in some episodes.
    • Kayla tends to go along with taunting BG when Brittany-Ann is involved, but otherwise the two are on friendly terms.
  • Friend or Idol Decision: BG is faced with one in "BG's Audition" where she has to choose between joining Brittany-Ann's team to win a dance contest, or remaining on Gad and Alex's team. She chooses the former, but later rejects the opportunity to have her photo taken with her team to hang out with her friends.
  • Halloween Episode: The episode "Party Contest", in which BG and Brittany-Ann compete with one another to get the other kids to attend their Halloween party.
  • Head Pet: Albert the hamster.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Brittany-Ann. Acts like a show-off and can't help but make insensitive jabs at BG from time to time, but at the same time, she has a soft spot for George, has a Pet the Dog moment in nearly every episode she shows up in, and if BG is in trouble, she'll often lend a hand.
  • Known Only by Their Nickname: Everyone always calls Bella Gloria "BG".
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: Brittany-Ann may be snooty, but deep down, she does care about BG and her friends.
  • Nerd Glasses: Alex
  • Plucky Girl: Miss BG. Kayla as well.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Mr. Grant, the school principal, who acts as a wise and supportive figure towards the schoolchildren.
  • The Rival: Brittany-Ann to BG at times.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Billy.
  • Those Two Girls: Brittany-Ann and Kayla.
  • íThree Amigos!/Token Trio: BG, Gad, and Alex.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: BG is the Tomboy to Brittany-Ann's Girly Girl.
  • Two Girls and a Guy: Brittany-Ann, Kayla and Billy.

  • Youthful Freckles: Brittany-Ann has these.
