Western Animation / The Miniavengers

The Miniavengers ("Les Minijusticiers") is a French comic book and cartoon series created by Zep, the creator of Titeuf, and Helénne Bruller. The premise is simple: a city with children who are represented by animals, each with a fault (laziness, stutters, small, big, mischievous, discreet ...) which will become a super power. At the end of each episode, they give the audience a little advice...Their slogan is "Great default but max power". It is alternatively titled The Minimighty Kids. The animated series currently consists of two seasons with 78 episodes of 7 minutes each.

Connecting both seasons is a half-hour special in which five of the 78 kids who experienced being superheroes (Greg, Yvon, Marion, Nathan and Eliette) wish to have their powers back, regaining them thanks to a mysterious magical star. This time, they now have their powers permanently (as long as they keep the magic star with them), and decide to form a little Super Team. The stories now have improved plots in which these six kids help their classmates and other people from the neighborhood while also having predicaments of their own. It is shown that if another group takes the magical star, they will get powers, so the bad guys take this chance but they're ultimately foiled by the new team. Officially, the second season is known as La Bande des Minijusticiers / The Minimighty Squad.

Other than France, is currently also aired in Mexico under the name Grandes Minipoderosos (a loose translation of the alternative title seen above). The Mexican dub is basically a gag one, adding idioms and references to Mexican pop culture. It also airs in Spain as Superminihéroes.

Most tropes can be found on the character page.
