My Life as a Teenage Robot is an American television series created by Rob Renzetti. The series follows the adventures of a girl robot called XJ-9, who was created by her mom Dr. Nora Wakeman and designed to protect Earth, but really wants to do teenage stuff and not save the world.

Nickelodeon debuted the series by airing the first episode of My Life as a Teenage Robot on August 1, 2003 at 8:30 PM. But despite critical success, the series was a ratings disappointment. After the series was cancelled, later episodes of the series started airing as "never before seen episodes" on Nicktoons Network. The series is distributed outside the United States by the Canadian animation studio, Nelvana Limited.

The first season is available on iTunes.[source?] Seasons 1, 2, and 3 are now available on DVD at Amazon.[source?]

Synopsis

Jenny Wakeman (Janice Kawaye), whose real robot name is XJ-9, is a teenage robot created by Dr. Nora Wakeman (Candi Milo); that makes Nora XJ-9's mom and XJ-9 Nora's daughter. Jenny is programmed to protect the Earth and fight off anyone or anything that causes harm (such as Queen Vexus {Eartha Kitt} and the Cluster). But Jenny wants to live the life of a normal teenage girl (without her mom getting in her way and bugging her) and hang out with her friends Brad Carbunkle (Chad Doreck), his little brother Tuck (Audrey Wasilewski), and Sheldon Lee (Quinton Flynn).

Production

Nickelodeon debuted the series by airing the first episode of My Life as a Teenage Robot on June 1, 2003 at 8:30 PM. My Life as a Teenage Robot was aired in repeats on The N on June 7, 2005.[1] The show was a part of Nickelodeon's Saturday night programming block called SNICK on June 2, 2003 and briefly was a part of the TEENick lineup on June 2003 to June 2004. The first season ended on June 27, 2004 with "The Wonderful World of Wizzly" and "Call Hating."

The second season, which was originally set to air on October 1, 2004, was pushed back to October 8, 2004 with the Christmas episode "A Robot For All Seasons." A new second season episode wasn't aired until January 24, 2005.[2] After the airing of the infamous 48-minute Escape from Cluster Prime 2-part episode (which was emmy nominated in 2006),[3] the show was cancelled,[4] as Carlos Ramos left the project to focus on The X's.[5]

The third season first aired in Asia starting on October 6, 2006, with "Weapons of Mass Distraction / There's No Place Like Home School." For those in North America watching on Nicktoons, the third season started on October 4, 2008 with the last episode of the third season airing on May 2, 2009. This marked the end of the series' 7-year run.
