Teamo Supremo is an American animated television series created by Disney. Animated in the limited animation style pioneered by Jay Ward, predecessors which inspired its style, it tells of three superhero children: Captain Crandall, Skate Lad, and Rope Girl. These three protect their state from all sorts of supervillains, such as the evil Baron Blitz, and the shape-changing femme fatale known as Madame Snake.

The series debuted on ABC as part of Disney's One Saturday Morning block on January 19, 2002, where almost all of its first season aired. However, it started regularly airing on Toon Disney in September of that same year, where most of its second season premiered. During the spring of 2003, about half of its second season premiered on ABC Kids. In September 2003, it was taken off ABC Kids to make room for Lilo & Stitch: The Series, leaving the rest of the episodes to premiere on Toon Disney. 39 episodes were made, with 75 total stories.


Teamo Supremo[edit]

  • Captain Crandall / Cap (Spencer Breslin) - The leader of Teamo Supremo, who believes that he is an alien superhero from another planet. He is often addressed as "Cap" by his teammates, and his battle catchphrase is "Buh-Za!". In later episodes, Crandall's seemingly imaginary superpowers and backstory seem to actually become canon. In the finale, he experiences a sudden burst of superhuman strength and defense. Also, his skin turns purple when he gets very angry. His gadgets include a special Level 7 belt, as well as a yo-yo, marbles, a boomerang, and a shield.
  • Hector Felipé Corrio / Skate Lad (Alanna Ubach) - The Hispanic member of Teamo Supremo, Hector is the state's skateboarding champion. His main gadget is a patriotic-themed jet-propelled skateboard and his catchphrase is "Chi-Ka!".
  • Brenda / Rope Girl (Alanna Ubach) - The sole female member of Teamo Supremo, she has purple hair and buck teeth and speaks with a Southern drawl. Her catchphrase is "Wuh-Pa!", and her gadget is a jumprope, which she uses as a lasso when battling villains, but can also be used to transform herself, Crandall, and Hector into their heroic alter egos when all three jump rope together.


  • Governor Kevin (Martin Mull) - The "groovy" governor of the state they live in.
  • The Chief (Brian Doyle-Murray) - The chief of police, who does not take kindly to Teamo taking police matters into their own hands. He was a former US Cold War secret agent named Epsilon. A recurring joke with the chief is when he takes a villain away, he'll say a witty line that ends with jail, prison, etc. (e.g.: "Come on, space fakes. You're about to take one small step...TO JAIL!!!"). He once tried to operate as a costumed superhero himself, using the code-name 'Lawman', but made a hash of it since his 'gadgets' consisted of an umbrella and an eggwhisk.
  • Mrs. Crandall (Julia Sweeney) - Crandall's human mother. He refers to her as "Earth Mom" since he thinks he is an alien. She is completely oblivious to the fact that Crandall and his friends are superheroes (or so it may seem).
  • Jean Crandall (Rachel Crane) - Crandall's older human sister who is aware of his superhero career. She often gives the team advice, claiming it's necessary if she "wants to be a [career] some day".
  • Mr. Paulson (Fred Willard) - The eccentric director of Level 7, a top-secret facility that makes Teamo's gadgets.
  • Samantha - Paulson's assistant.
  • Mrs. Woolingantz - Teamo's schoolteacher who often excuses them if Governor Kevin needs them. She doesn't assign much homework, but gets angry when it isn't done.
  • Action - Crandall's dog. He is sometimes called to help Teamo in certain missions, ala Ace the Bat-Hound.
  • The Silver Shield a.k.a. Gordon (Robert Stack) - Crandall's grandfather, who has had a Captain America-like superhero identity.
  • The Dark Talon a.k.a. Nick (Gary Owens) - Crandall's other grandfather, who has had a Batman-like superhero identity.
  • Mrs. Corrio - Hector's mother.
  • The Twins - Hector's unnamed twin sisters, who often speak gibberish in unison.
  • Brenda's Mom - Brenda's mother, from whom she seems to get her Southern accent.
  • Barclae a.k.a. Diaper Dude - Brenda's baby brother, who once helped Teamo in one of their adventures.
  • Teamo's Dads - The kids' respective fathers, but not much is known about them as they've only been seen in one episode. Crandall's dad seems to read the newspaper a lot, and Hector's dad runs a skateboard shop.
  • Patience (Vene L. Arcoraci) - The Chief's daughter. She has her mother's figure and her father's vocal cords.
  • Mauricio the Comedian - A black comedian.
  • Tiffany Javelins a.k.a. the Songstress a.k.a. Sally Smith - A teen singer whom Brenda idolizes. Originally worked for the Mischievous Manager, but turned good afterwards. (Strangely, Toon Disney's official site for the show still labelled her as a villain.)
  • Captain Excellent - An old superhero whom Crandall idolizes.
  • B. Barry Berylium - Chief editor of the state's newspaper, The Stately Planet. He prefers being addressed as "Chief" over "Sir".
  • Ollie Jimson (Jason Marsden) - A rookie news journalist who works for Mr. Berylium, who finds it annoying that Ollie never calls him "Chief". His name is a nod to Jimmy Olsen.
  • Viva Voom - Governor Kevin's Dutch girlfriend from high school. She is now a famous actress, but still has her relationship with Kevin.
  • A fellow member of the school faculty is usually the one to tell Mrs. Woolingantz that Governor Kevin needs Teamo's help. Her name was never revealed in the series, nor did she ever actually have dialogue (she always whispers to the teacher).
  • The state's newscaster who always pops up on TV to deliver news. His name was never revealed either.

Recurring villains[edit]

  • Baron Blitz (Maurice LaMarche) - A short blue man, possibly from an alien world himself, with a German accent. He is known for taking control of wax statues, and later on bronze statues and animatronics.
  • Technor the Mechanized Man - Originally invented by Paulson to be a robot psychologist; now power-hungry. His henchmen are called TechnoCreeps, and he often travels in his power-sucking Magna Body. A spoof of Marvel Comics villiain M.O.D.O.K.
  • Chopper Daddy (Jess Harnell) - A motorcycle-themed villain.
  • Scooter Lad a.k.a. Snake a.k.a. Justin (Pamela Adlon) - Chopper Daddy's son, who rides a scooter. He has twice tricked Teamo into believing they could trust him. And his battle catchphrase is "Hoo-Ka!"
  • The Birthday Bandit a.k.a. B.B. the Clown (Mark Hamill) - A clown gone bad. Often robs birthday parties and other special occasions. He is always accompanied by three similarly-dressed henchmen, the Party Favors, one of which is named Evelyn. He briefly changed his name to the Valentine Bandit when he kidnapped Viva Voom.
  • Madame Snake (Sydney Walsh) - A femme fatale with the ability to change her appearance, as well as an outrageously bad fashion sense.
  • Mr. Large (Edward Asner) - A stereotypical mob leader who likes large items. Unlike most of the villains on the show, his henchmen have names: Ernie the Hat, Mickey the Shirt, and Rosie the Purse.
  • Helius Inflato (Joel Murray) - A guy who can inflate himself and fly, hence his name. He wants to build a casino in the state, but isn't allowed to.
  • Laser Pirate a.k.a. Larry (Tim Curry) - A former colleague of Paulson, he is the only pirate that doesn't like water due to a college incident. His hideout is a skyscraper that flies around (a possible homage to Monty Python's The Meaning of Life).
  • The Gauntlet a.k.a. Crawford (Wallace Shawn) - Formerly one of Paulson's co-workers, he continually wreaks havoc with a pair of powerful Gauntlets he's always able to steal.
  • Hypnotheria (April Winchell) - A hypnosis-themed villain.
  • Dehydro (Diedrich Bader) - A water-themed baddie. He has a habit of repeating himself, and repeating himself is what he does. He over-reiterates, and says things too many times.
  • Mr. Vague (Gary Cole) - A rather dull bad guy with grey skin. He is never specific with what he wants to steal.
  • Electronica a.k.a. Polly Pixel (Grey DeLisle) - A former video game designer furious over the fact that players constantly beat her games using cheating devices.
  • "Big Skull" - An alien supervillain/real estate baron. His real name is pronounced by clicking your teeth together three times.
  • "The Sinister Stylist" (Sydney Walsh) - An ex-soap opera actress who had a bad hair day and ended up humiliated by TV funnyman Maurico, due to the almost constant laughter of the audience attending that year's state awards show. She has since then sworn to give bad hair to everyone and display it to the world.
  • "D.J. Despicable" (Casey Kasem) - A supervillain who used to be a popular radio DJ who created a song for Teamo called "Doin' the Supremo", however, he unwittingly signed a record contract that didn't allow him to collect royalties for his song being used on the radio. Enraged by this, he changed his name to DJ Despicable and he and his henchmen, The Mikes, used a special music to hypnotize people into doing a dance while he's on his crime spree. He was defeated by Teamo Supremo.
  • "Will 2 Wynn" - Governor Kevin's opponent in his re-election. His real name is William Aloysius Wynn, but when Governor Kevin beat him in the election for high school class president (which according to Kevin, was the only time Wynn lost at anything), Wynn changed his name to Will 2 Wynn. Will seemed certain to win the election due to his massive campaign fund, which came from a group known as "Will's Friends". After doing some investigating in the archives, Teamo discovered that the group consisted of many of their archenemies, which caused Will to reveal his true motive. Will planned to get back at Governor Kevin for beating him, by helping every villain in the state get back at Teamo. However, Will was beaten and his criminal dealings were exposed, causing him to lose the election, as it is illegal to accept campaign donations from criminals, and state law prohibits the election of anyone in jail.
  • Dr. Pogo (John Kassir) - A mad-scientist-like villain who travels everywhere on a motorized pogo-stick (as do his three henchmen).
  • Dr. 'Droid (S. Scott Bullock) - An evil scientist who plans to replace all of the State's citizens with robot look-alikes.
  • Vladimir Trettiak - An old enemy from the Chief's younger days. He uses technology from Level 8, which happens to be a step up from Level 7.
