Bruno the Kid is a animated television series that aired for two seasons from 1996 to 1997. The show follows the adventures of an 11-year-old boy named Bruno Buckingham who operates as a secret agent for the International Espionage Agency (IEA), going on missions to stop various supervillains from taking over the world.

The show is produced by Film Roman and it stars popular Hollywood actor Bruce Willis as the voice of Bruno's mentor, the highly-skilled spy known as Jarlsberg. Jennifer Hale also voices Bruno's IEA handler, the no-nonsense Wendy Worldwide. Other voice actors that contributed to the show include Lynne Thigpen as Bruno's teacher, Mrs. Ardonian, and Paul Dobson as Bruno's arch-nemesis, Dr. Venom.

The premise of the show is quite simple. Bruno is a normal kid who also happens to be a highly skilled agent for the IEA. He is recruited by the agency after he successfully stops Dr. Venom from stealing a dangerous weapon. From then on, Bruno is embroiled in a series of dangerous missions that take him all around the world.

Each episode sees Bruno and his team of agents take on a different villain intending to wreak havoc across the globe. The villains that Bruno faces include the likes of the Arctic Avenger, who wants to freeze the world, the electrifying Charge, who wants to shut down power grids, and the shape-shifting Chameleon, who has his sights set on stealing valuable documents. With the help of his gadgets, his wit, and his team of agents, Bruno always manages to thwart each villain's plans.

One key aspect of the show is its use of gadgets. Bruno is always armed with the latest in spy tech, from his handheld communicators to his flying skateboard. Each gadget plays a crucial role in helping Bruno and his team succeed in their missions. However, Bruno's gadgets sometimes backfire, leading to some comedic moments in the show.

Another notable aspect of Bruno the Kid is its animation style. The show utilizes a mix of traditional and computer-generated animation, which was somewhat ahead of its time in the mid-90s. The result is a visually impressive show that still holds up well today.

The show's characters are well-developed and engaging. Bruno is a likable protagonist, with his youthful enthusiasm and resourcefulness making him a compelling lead. Jarlsberg serves as a mentor figure to Bruno, but also has his own tricks up his sleeve. Wendy Worldwide is a no-nonsense spy who always gets the job done. Even the villains are given some depth, with Dr. Venom having a personal vendetta against Bruno that drives his actions.

Overall, Bruno the Kid is an entertaining show that is perfect for kids and adults alike. It has a unique blend of action, comedy, and gadgetry that is sure to keep viewers engaged. With its all-star cast and impressive animation, it's a show that is deserving of its cult following.

Bruno the Kid is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (36 episodes). The series first aired on September 23, 1996.
