Pamela Anderson Lee was a hot heroine in Barb Wire. She continues that legacy as the animated crime fighter Stripperella (2003-2004). She has spy gear in the form of women’s accessories and a body that can withstand any extreme temperature.
Stripperella’s secret identity is Erotica, an exotic dancer. However, she’s not very good at hiding her secret. Erotica blabs things out loud, but covers it up quickly and awkwardly. Yet it always works no matter who hears it. Furthermore, whenever Stripperella goes undercover, she never thinks ahead when it comes to an alias.
There’s a lot of sexual related humor on this series. For example, Stripperella’s favorite charity is called Animals Need Universal Support a.k.a. A.N.U.S.. Also look for sexual puns on the signs around the city. They’re everywhere.
At Spooky Empire Mayhem 2012, I met Joey Lauren Adams. She was the voice of Catt, one of the other strippers. When I told Joey that I knew her best for this role, she mentioned that she also did several voices for Doctor Dolittle 2 and that I should be sure to look for them.
Stripperella fights all sort of enemies. Some of which are colorful archenemies like Queen Clatoris the elusive cyber villain with a face that could make anyone cringe. That’s why it’s usually hidden.
Small Fry is a short man with a huge chip on his shoulder and is highly irritable to even the slightest thing related to the word “short”.
Then there’s Cheapo the penny-pinching crime lord, who would prefer to steal copper instead of gold. Another interesting thing about Cheapo is that he sounds a lot like Jon Lovitz, but that’s not who voices the character.
It’s unknown how Stripperella started out as a superhero, but she’s always there when crime is afoot. However, Stripperella is not a loner, like Spiderman. She works as a secret agent under the command of Chief Stroganoff, who always keeps her posted.
This is a good series with great crime fighting action, but sometimes when it comes to the sexual puns, the characters tend to babble. That gets annoying and makes me want to say, “Okay, I get it.”
