Team Galaxy is a French and Canadian 2006 animated series. It ran for 52 episodes in 2 seasons. The story is about three young students living their own normal lives and training to become space marshals. The protagonists are Yoko, a wannabe pop singer, Brett, a serious Child Prodigy, and Josh, a rebellious and fun-loving adrenaline junkie. They attend Galaxy High (not to be confused with Galaxy High, a 1980s animated program)

It's made by the same company as Martin Mystery and Totally Spies!, which explains the Animesque style.

Not to be confused with Team Galactic.



  • Brain in a Jar: In the episode "Brett's Brain", robots from the City Planet of Computopia sneak into his bedroom and replace their planet's old, faulty computer chip with... well... his brain.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Josh, Yoko and Brett have all undergone this or the milder brainwashed trope at some point as well as many of the supporting characters.
  • Circus of Fear: Circus clowns kidnap humans for their performances at Season 1 finale.
  • Cloning Blues: In one episode, Josh, Brett, and Yoko are cloned, but the personalities are mixed up to where the Josh clone is nerdy, the Brett clone is obsessive over his hair, and the Yoko clone is a daredevil.
  • Criminal Amnesiac: Used on Josh along with the brainwashed trope in the "Psycho-Cycle" episode.
  • Cross-Popping Veins: Happened to characters such as Brett in the episode "Emperor Brett" when Yoko and Josh teased him for being small.
  • Evil Costume Switch: Josh during his brainwashed stint in the episode "Psycho-Cycle".
  • Fake Muscles: In the Halloween episode "Trick or Treat", Brett's costume is that of a bodybuilder, the desired appearance accomplished by putting compressed C02 cartridges inside it.
  • Fate Worse than Death: A video game system has a player that wins the game sucked in and forced to direct the game for eternity.
  • Female Gaze: Josh, just Josh. Also Principal Kirkpatrick.
  • Giftedly Bad: Yoko's singing is actually... well, horrible. The aliens like it, though, even though it makes humans cry out in pain.
  • Hollywood Tone-Deaf: Yoko. Doesn't stop her from going on. Though this only seems to apply to earthlings, all the other aliens love her singing. Especially ironic when one considers that her voice actress, Katie Griffin, is more than capable of carrying a tune and sings for the show's opening sequence.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Josh can sometimes act this way but if he does he always comes to the aid of the heroes in the end.
  • Literal Maneater: Episode 29, "The Matchmaker", has Yoko unwittingly set up their teacher Mr. Spzoercliipw with an alien woman from a species who does this, forcing the team to need to save him. Fittingly enough, it turns out she's a shapeshifting Insectoid Alien who looks like a giant praying mantis in her true form.
  • Mars Needs Water: "H2-Oh No!" featured an aquatic race stealing water from various planets due to the fact that the planet is in a system that has six suns, which constantly evaporate the planet's water supply.
  • Mind-Control Device: In "Mr. 6025-A46", after the eponymous villain kidnaps one of Galaxy High's teachers, Mr. Fitch, and places himself as the substitute teacher, he gives each of his students necklaces with gold stars in them. When he has them build a giant robot as a class project, Mr. 6025-A46 activates the machine to brainwash them through the gold stars so he can take over Galaxy High.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Again Josh
  • Multiple Head Case: The alien girl from "Miss Cosmos" has her family growing on the back of her neck.
  • Pardon My Klingon: Josh and Brett are supposed to be translating a text from an alien language into English in the episode "When Josh Attacks". Josh, who has been goofing off playing a video game on his computer connects his up to Brett's and steals his copy. Josh ends up taking all the credit. Brett, annoyed, tells Josh he has a word for him and speaks some strange, alien word. The whole class suddenly gains an expression of shock on their faces.
  • Sand Necktie: The protagonists gets this treatment from some Plant Aliens. In this case, though, the aim doesn't seem to be any kind of torture, but the primitive aliens actually thinking the humans would... germinate and grow.
  • Space Police: Galaxy High works both as a regular high school (albeit with aliens and Recycled In Space) and an intergalactic police department. They arrest dangerous criminals and other threats from both inside and out, and even has its own prison for said criminals.
  • Team Pet: Fluffy the robotic Ultrapet, who pulls the protagonists out of precarious situations in multiple occasions.
  • Weasel Mascot: Fluffy is a robotic ferret.
