[[caption-width-right:350:You can't stop the girl!]]

A Creator/CartoonNetwork original series created by Creator/JuddWinick, cartoonist (who created the comic strip ''Frumpy The Clown'' and the comic book ''Barry Ween Boy Genius'') and alumnus of ''Series/TheRealWorld''. It ran from 2005 to 2007, with a total of three seasons.

Juniper Lee (June for short) is a Chinese-American girl who also happens to be heir to the title of ''Te Xuan Ze''. Basically, that means she has the ability to see the members of a society of monsters living invisibly among humans, low-level super-strength and agility, and the responsibility of keeping the peace among said monsters and maintaining the {{Masquerade}} when necessary.

As is always the case, being the Te Xuan Ze comes with all the other headaches and responsibilities of being a pre-teen girl. Fortunately, she has the help of her kindly grandmother (the former Te Xuan Ze), a snarky talking pug named Monroe, and her plucky kid brother Ray-Ray.

* AbusiveParents: Monroe's father Williams, especially during the Easter episode.
%%* ActionGirl
%%* AdultsAreUseless: Mostly...
* AffablyEvil: WAY more frequent than you can imagine.
* AllPartOfTheShow: In ''It Takes A Pillage'' June, Ray Ray and Monroe hijack a tour boat to chase after their viking possessed friends. June manages to convince the tourist that the chase, bombardment and sinking of their ship is all part of a history tour.
%%* AloofBigBrother: Dennis. He gets better though.
* AlphaBitch: Melissa O'Malley, the school diva.
%%* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Ray-Ray, and how.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking:
--> '''June''': All right! I have fought a small army of hillbilly demons, punched my way through 200 feet of concrete, and I lost my favorite pair of earrings!
%%* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: This happens quite frequently on the show.
%%* BadassAdorable: Juniper, for certain. Lila also easily qualifies.
* BalefulPolymorph: "The Great Escape", when Juniper is turned into a lemur and imprisoned in a zoo with other transformed magical beings.
%%* BatmanColdOpen: Some of the early episodes.
%%* BetweenMyLegs: In episode 1.
* BigfootSasquatchAndYeti: Lila is a smart, young girl sasquatch. By contrast, adult male sasquatches are incredibly dim (if harmless).
* BilingualBonus: Auntie Roo's flying fish and Ophelia in ''There's No Mitzvah Like Snow Mitzvah''
* BlessedWithSuck: As the Te Xuan Ze, June is physically incapable of leaving her hometown...
** CityOfAdventure: ...because that's where all the action is.
%%* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Thor's Valkyries.
* BrickJoke: In the ColdOpen of "Not in My Backyard", Ray Ray lets loose some monkeys, who then free an over-sized chicken. This is then forgot about until near the end of the episode, when June and Ray Ray fly on said chicken en route to defeating the episode's BigBad.
* CaptivityHarmonica: Played by the koala in "The Great Escape". The zookeeper tells him to stop.
* TheCastShowOff: This show really put Lara Jill Miller through her paces, in both shouting tone and singing.
%%* ChainOfDeals: "It's the Great Pumpkin, Juniper Lee".
* CompulsorySchoolAge: Happens to Jasmine, who experiences FountainOfYouth syndrome for one episode.
* ContagiousPowers: The main reason Ray Ray can see monsters. [[spoiler: During an attack by some monsters just as June was coming into her powers, they try to suck it out of her. However Ray Ray interrupted the transfer and some of June's power got implanted in him.]]
* CutShort: The final episode ends with [[spoiler:Juniper on her way home, happily jumping superhumanly high in the process, unaware that Jody is watching her.]] The series ends before this can be resolved.
** What's more, [[spoiler: Jody]] carrying a book on how to spot magical creatures. So...yeah.
%%* CuteBruiser: Both Juniper and Lila easily qualify as this.
* DotingGrandparent: Jasmine Lee to both June and Ray Ray.
* EmergencyTransformation: Ray Ray in one episode when he permanently transforms his original body into a T-Rex. June and Monroe have to make a golem body and transfer his soul into it.
%%* ExpectingSomeoneTaller: in ''O Brother, What Art Thou?'', a giant is revealed to be much smaller than what would be usually ecpected of giants.
* ExpositoryThemeTune: "InAWorld full of monsters and demons / June is the only one who sees them..."
* ExtremeOmnivore: In "Not in My Backyard", June has to watch a harmless-looking creature called a Batoot. Turns out it's also a bottomless pit.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: Many background references to the creator:
** In the second episodes, one of the gravestones in the cemetery reads "J. Winick".
** In "Enter Sandman", each door leading into a person's dreams has that person's name on it. One unentered door is labelled "Judd".
* GameShowAppearance: In "New Trickster in Town", the god Loki puts June on a show called ''Let's Save Humanity''. Round 1 has a {{Calvinball}}-esque question of "Banana" with an answer of "UsefulNotes/RichardNixon"; Round 2 offers her "Multiple choice" or "Molten pit of eternal torment". She picks "Multiple choice", which leads to a Series/LetsMakeADeal-alike. Door #1 has a box full of {{Wicked Weasel}}s; Door #2, a lifetime supply of deviled ham; and Door #3, a werewolf-like creature. [[spoiler:It's then interrupted when Ray-Ray has a moment of competence.]]
* GonnaNeedMoreX: In "Welcome Bat Otter", the fear of bat otters made some magical creatures hide inside a cave. Seeing the size of some of the magical creatures seeking shelter made her believe a bigger cave would be needed.
%%* {{Goth}}: Ophelia.
* GrandFinale: Subverted. The final episode ''Every Witch Way But Loose'' has the overall feel of one, but the final shot features [[spoiler: Jody discovering June's powers after watching her leap from rooftop to rooftop]]. It seems the writers were uncertain if the show would continue and thus crafted the Season 3 finale to work as a serviceable finale, while also including the final scene as a way of setting up Season 4. [[CutShort Unfortunately, the show was cancelled]].
* GuardingThePortal: June is guardian of Orchid Bay's nexus of the world of magic, [[TheMasquerade The Magical Veil]] and [[spoiler: power of the elders]].
%%* IJustWantToBeNormal
%%* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Ray-Ray occasionally.
* InterspeciesRomance: Ray-Ray has a crush on [[CuteMonsterGirl Lila]].
* InvisibleToNormals: All the monsters. (But ''not'' the sasquatches, as they are not technically magical.)
%%* {{Jerkass}}: Dennis sometimes.
* LeftHanging: See CutShort, not that the last episode doesn't feel like a finale and it was obvious the writers left that in there in case they got another season. But yeah...
* KnightTemplar: A [[GovernmentConspiracy secret government]] [[TheMenInBlack Men In Black]] organization known as [[FunWithAcronyms H.A.M.]] is out to get ''all'' monsters, bad or otherwise.
* LighterAndSofter: Two episodes were adapted from the more adult [[ComicBook/TheAdventuresOfBarryWeenBoyGenius Barry Ween]].
* LimitedWardrobe: Lampshaded.
-->'''Ray-Ray:''' (''when Ashley compliments his shirt'') Dude, I am never taking this off!
-->'''Monroe:''' I hate to break this to you, lad, but you never do. You're like [[{{Peanuts}} Charlie Brown]].
%%* {{Masquerade}}
* MineralMacGuffin: The three [[CosmicKeystone Touchstones]] featured in [[spoiler:the finale episode are this]].
* MissedTheCall: Juniper's dad was originally supposed to be the next Te Xuan Ze, but it skipped and passed on to her instead.
* MixAndMatchCritters: One episode centers around a bat-otter.
* MonsterIsAMommy: The episode "Meet The Parent" has a giant, stone-eating monster terrorizing the town looking for its baby, which, due to June getting sprayed with said baby's scent, it thinks is June.
* MulticoloredHair: The pink streak running down June's otherwise raven hair. It originally was a SkunkStripe, and it's justified because it's the mark of her powers as a Te Xuan Ze.
* NinetiesAntiHero: One episode has one as a RefugeeFromTVLand, named "Boomfist". Master of the FamilyUnfriendlyAesop, but not really that bad at the whole hero thing.
* OneSteveLimit: Subverted. There are two characters named "Michael". One of them is the protagonist's father and the other is a monster film-maker. So far, there's no episode featuring both Michaels.
%%* OnlySaneWoman: Lila among the sasquatches.
* OurMonstersAreDifferent: As shown in the first episode, leprechauns are really tall.
%%* PluckyComicRelief: Roger.
* PopStarComposer: Stewart Copeland of Music/ThePolice wrote the theme song.
* ReluctantHero: June displayed this trait right from the first episode, and seeing as she's the youngest Te Xuan Ze in history, you can't exactly blame her.
* RightBehindMe:
--> '''June''': I mean, there is no question that Marcus is a ninth-degree babe with the great hair... and the cute smile... but that doesn't change the fact that he's standing right behind me, right?
* RockTrio: The band formed by June (guitar), Dennis (bass), and Ray Ray (drums), aka Short Angry Freuds.
* SchoolPlay: Played with in "Magic Takes a Holiday", in which June goes to Drama Camp and is cast as Jack in a RockOpera [[AllMusicalsAreAdaptations adaptation]] of ''Literature/JackAndTheBeanstalk'' directed by Ophelia.
* ShoeSizeAngst: Although never a true inconvenience, Lila's giant feet don't allow her to wear anything that's not open-toed. This makes sense, since she's actually a [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti sasquatch]].
* ShoutOut:
** The puzzle chimes from ''Series/WheelOfFortune'' are used in a mock game show in "New Trickster in Town".
** When bidding farewell to the Batoot at the end of "Not in My Backyard", Ray Ray says, "[[Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial Be good]]."
** While she is grounded, Juniper watches a show on TV and shouts, "[[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Go get 'em, Bubbles!!]]"
%%* TheSnarkKnight: Ophelia.
%%* SquashedFlat: Just once in the Halloween special.
%%* TalkingAnimal: Monroe.
* TemptingFate: In "Not in My Backyard", June starts yelling at the Batoot after it eats every item in the basement. Monroe warns her not to upset him, because doing so will bring more bad luck. She, of course, asks how much worse it can get.
** The episode with the Tarabok weed problem also had her TemptingFate and Monroe cautioning her against that. Cue problems left and right.
* TheUnfavourite: [[spoiler:Loki]] is revealed to be this to [[spoiler:Thor]] in "New Trickster in Town".
* ValleyGirl: Ophelia would occasionally slip into valley girl mode when excited over a girly interest, such as boy bands.
* VanHelsingHateCrime: H.A.M (Humans Against Magic), an organization dedicated to wiping out all and anything monsters and magic related. This includes humans that help them i.e: Juniper.
* VoicesAreMental: Referenced in "I've Got You under My Skin" where June has to magically change the voices of Ray Ray and Monroe when they are diguised as her and Ray Ray, respectively.
%%* WakeUpGoToSchoolSaveTheWorld
* WeAreExperiencingTechnicalDifficulties: Occurs to a news anchor in "New Trickster in Town".
* WeCanRebuildHim: [[spoiler:Ray-Ray's soul now occupies a replica of his original body, after he became a huge monster and could not be turned back.]]
* WhamEpisode: "Dog Show Afternoon" becomes this at the end where it's revealed that the Te Xuan Ze is physically incapable of ever leaving Orchid Bay until they have a descendant that can take their place. Poor June looks so heartbroken when Ah-Mah tells her the bad news.
* WhateverHappenedToTheMouse? Whatever happened to those clones of June's friends? We see Ophelia's clone shopping at the same music store as the original but what happened to the others?
** Also, the turtle in "Little Big Mah" [[spoiler: that was used to defeat the villain.]] The energy-syphoning Darnock demon sucked up all those turtle years but where did the turtle itself go? Not to mention, it wasn't even a random turtle, but one that Ray Ray was loaning from a friend during the episode. It and the demon are never mentioned again, but by the looks of it seem to be one entity now but it is left unclear.
* WitchWithACapitalB: June feels this way about Ashley after she turns into a PrettyFreeloader who her friends liked to hang out with more than her.
-->'''June:''' If she drools on my pillow, she's gunna one dead '''W'''itch.
* WorldOfSnark: June and Monroe are the two biggest, but just about everyone gets their turn, including Jasmine, Ray Ray and even June's cheery friend Jody.
* WriterOnBoard: Not as blatant as some of Winick's other works, but still obvious.
* YouCanSeeMe: A variation of it in "Adventures in Babysitting":
-->'''Juniper:''' You can talk!?
-->'''Monroe:''' You can hear me???
-->'''Juniper:''' (After an exposition talk by Monroe) Are you Scottish?
%%* YouFightLikeACow: On occasion.
%%* YouJustRuinedTheShot: "Star Quality" - June interrupts a fake monster nature reality show being filmed.
* YourWorstNightmare: In "Enter Sandman", June's is revealed to be [[spoiler:forgetting her lines in the school play]]. Fortunately, she's clever enough not to be fazed by it (her first clue being that Ophelia's playing the Tin Man).
** Ironically enough, Ophelia actually '''''does''''' play ''that exact role'' in a much later episode, "There's No Mitzvah Like Snow-Mitzvah," at Jody's sister's Bat Mitzvah play, where all three of June's friends have roles and costumes they had in the dream.
