Bratz is a computer-animated television series, based on a line of toy dolls of the same name. It is produced by Mike Young Productions and MGA Entertainment, and premiered on 4Kids TV on the Fox Television Network.

Series Overview[edit]

The four main characters are Cloe, Yasmin, Jade and Sasha. The girls live in a high-glam contemporary-style metropolis called Stylesville. They own and run their (own) eponymous magazine company, Bratz Magazine, which was established after Jade was fired from an internship. They also attend Stylesville High where they take their favorite classes, including a fashion course, and they are also cheerleaders. Their rival magazine company is Your Thing Magazine, owned and run by their business rival, Burdine Maxwell, who self-proclaims herself is the "Reigning Queen of Fashion". The girls' adventures are exploited throughout the series, both in and outside of Stylesville.

Characters[edit]

Bratz Magazine[edit]

Cloe (voice by Olivia Hack), a.k.a. Angel. The beauty editor of the group, Cloe is a natural athlete, and is good at any sport she tries. However, she is also very dramatic about and during a specific situation (Sasha sometimes calls her "Drama Mama" because of this) and prone to outbursts. Nevertheless, Cloe is a very supportive friend who comes through in the end, which proves that she is also a heroine.

Yasmin (voiced by Dionne Quan), a.k.a. Pretty Princess. The soft and quite one in the group, Yasmin also has a passion for literature and animals. Though this sometimes can lead to her friends' ignoring her or being treated differently, she is also a very intelligent individual with righteous virtues and well-meaning morals, and knows what's right and what's wrong, even in tough situations.

Jade (voiced by Soleil Moon Frye), a.k.a. Cool Cat. The fashion editor of the group, Jade is, as said, and as she puts, the all-around and "far-out" fashionista. She also loves cats and even owns one named Micah. Though Jade often has good ideas, she sometimes puts things ahead of facts, leading to unexpected results. Despite this, Jade also has a funny sense of humor to keep her friends laughing.

Sasha (voiced by Tia Mowry), a.k.a. Bunny Boo. The music editor of the group, Sasha, an avid music lover, is also a talented dancer. Though she proclaims herself as leader of the group, she proves not to be so, as she has a bad temper and would often act irrationally when things don't go her way. However, Sasha has a good heart and often learns a lesson, particularly about not being hasty.
