Comics personality / dirty old man Stan Lee brings us one of his varying-in-quality side projects, this time a cartoon series about an exotic dancer who fights crime whatever irreverent, offensive or crass form it may take. The drawbacks of the show are immediately apparent but are all the more maddening for the glimmers of quality that occasionally surface, from surprisingly good animation and sharp writing to a genuinely likeable performance from Pamela Anderson as the titular character, all of which are unfortunately mired in the risible premise.

Courtesy of Bibo Bergeron of The Road To El Dorado and Shark Tale fame comes this whimsical tale of how a mutated flea invented rock and roll. While boasting some sharp design work and catchy tunes it's let down by its pacing along with some jarring visual hiccups but more than makes up for these with sheer heart.
