Western Animation: Monster Buster Club

"Hi! My name is Cathy. My grandpa and I came from planet Rhapsodia to power up an age-old secret society. With my new friends, our mission is to battle troublemaking aliens around Singletown. We are... the Monster Buster Club!"Monster Buster Club
— Cathy Smith, the opening sequence
is a French-Canadian co-produced computer-animated
series produced by Marathon
, the animation company where Totally Spies!
and Martin Mystery
were created. It's about a foursome of twelve-year-olds (Sam, Chris, Danny, and Cathy) who, as members of an "age-old" secret society called the Monster Buster Club
, protect the city of Singletown
from troublemaking aliens.
The four kids are all surprisingly mature for their age;
not only do they not seem to depend on their parents, they've been seen to hold part-time paying jobs in spite of being twelve years old. Their only adult supervision comes from Cathy's grandfather
, a well-meaning alien disguised as an old man
who oversees the Monster Buster Club's operations, although he's far from a reliable mentor
, being much more interested in tending to his garden.
In each episode, the kids' everyday affairs are interrupted by one of the outrageous alien villains from their Rogues Gallery
(often with a bizarre, harebrained scheme such as turning the entire planet Earth into an exclusive nightclub), whom the kid heroes
must suit up and stop. Along the way, they must also deal with obnoxious millionaire
Mark and their school principal, Ms. Rollins, who was an officer in the armed services and runs the school like a battleground.
