James Bond Jr.

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

James Bond Jr. is an animated series named after James Bond's nephew, who happens to be the main protagonist. James Junior is secretly following into his Uncle James' footsteps. The theme song even alludes to this by mentioning that "he learned the game from his uncle James".

Tropes used in James Bond Jr. include:
  • Daddy's Little Villain: Goldfinger's daughter, Goldie.
  • Did Not Do the Research: The "Junior" of the protagonist's name was abbreviated "Jr", like Americans do, but James is British and British people abbreviate "Junior" as "Jnr". Justified in that the series is American.
  • Expository Theme Tune: The theme song helpfully informs us that "he learned the game from his uncle James" and "James Bond Jr. chases S.C.U.M. around the world".
  • Expy: S.C.U.M., a stand-in for S.P.E.C.T.R.E. from the films.
  • Fun with Acronyms: S.C.U.M.
  • Girl of the Week: Which part of "he learned the game from his uncle James" you didn't get?
  • Kidanova
  • Meaningful Name: Naturally, being based on the Bond films, half the villains have these. For example, a pirate named Walker D. Plank.
  • Nebulous Evil Organisation: S.C.U.M.
  • Nephewism
  • A Pirate 400 Years Too Late: Captain Walker D. Plank
  • Pirate Parrot: Captain Walker D. Plank. Even his parrot has an eyepatch and a wooden leg.
  • Preppy Name: Trevor Noseworthy IV.
  • Reverse Polarity: IQ reverses the polarity all the time. He once took control of the bad guy's helicopter with a simple remote control and some polarity reversal.
  • Say My Name Trailer
  • Sins of Our Fathers: At least two girls in the series fit this trope. In the episode "Never Lose Hope", Warfield Academy got a new science teacher whose father was believed to be a S.C.U.M. agent until James Senior arrested him. Believing her father to be innocent and wanting to make James Senior know how she felt, she went after James Junior. It was later revealed that her father was not in prison but under a protection program. In "Appointment in Macau", James befriended Lily Mai, whose father was one of the heads of the Raven Triad. Actually, he was a mole working for the Interpol.
