Kim Possible's Latest Fight: For Season Five!
A reader recently alerted me that after successfully lobbying for - and getting - an unheard of (for The Disney Channel, anyway) fourth season of the truly brilliant animated spy spoof Kim Possible, Kim's fans are now rallying once more - for a fifth season. As long as series masterminds Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle were aboard, I would certainly welcome more Kim Possible! I'll reiterate some of the things I've said about this show in the past: Kim Possible is by no means limited to kids. In fact, while they’ll enjoy the adventures and the typical cartoon comedy, a lot of the jokes will go over their heads... Kim Possible is one of the sharpest, smartest James Bond parodies ever. It's especially on the nose with regards to Bond villains, their Ken Adam-like lairs, and their hench-people. Here's hoping further adventures become Possible!
If you want to support the cause, this website outlines everything you can do to let Disney know your feelings. RonStoppable.net seems like a good starting place for exploring the world of Kim, and the Ron Stoppable forums a good place to discuss it. KPFanWorld no only endorses the Fight For Five campaign, but also a campaign to get Kim Possible available in season sets on DVD, a goal I recently made my own #1 "spy wish" for 2008. (According to the aforementioned forums, such a set is already on the way in Germany. I hope America follows soon!)
