“Mark and Bob created an enduring character and kids all over the world found a friend in her, an average girl who just happens to spend her off-school hours thwarting evil villains,” said Adam Bonnett, executive vice president, original programming for Disney Channels Worldwide. “Although Kim Possible ‘can do anything,’ kids and tweens found that this animated redhead was just like them. As we embark on the fun challenge of making Kim and Ron fully dimensional, I’m thrilled to be working again with Mark and Bob and to welcome the addition of a dynamic creative team – Josh, Zanne, Adam and Zach – into a world where anything is indeed possible.”

Created by Bob Schooley and Mark McCorkle the original animated series aired on Disney Channel from June 7, 2002 to September 7, 2007. The TV show inspired two animated original movies, Kim Possible Movie: So the Drama in 2005, and Kim Possible: A Stitch in Time in 2003.
