One of three TV14-rated animated series debuting June 26, 2003, on the Spike TV cable channel (the others were Gary the Rat and Ren and Stimpy Adult Party Cartoon), Stripperella was developed (in every sense of the word) by comic book entrepreneur Stan Lee -- though in a reversal of the usual procedure, the TV show came before the comic book, rather than afterward. Well-endowed actress Pamela Anderson (Baywatch, V.I.P.) provided the voice for the title character, a sexy super-heroine whose alter ego was stripteaser Erotica Jones. Working for the top secret organization THUG, Stripperella could float from one crime-busting assignment to another through the aid of her enchanted blonde hair. Her crime fighting equipment included a lie detector hidden in her bra, and a digital computer embedded in her tongue. Each of Stripperella's half-hour adventures was chock full of sexual innuendo...some unsubtle, some really unsubtle. Numbering among the villains were the likes of demented plastic surgeon Dr. Cesarian and bitchy fashion designer Pushy Galore. Co-created by Kevin Kopelow and Heath Seifert, who in their kiddie show days had been responsible for the live action comedy series All That, Stripperella was seen in late prime time, ostensibly out of the viewing range of the small children for whom the show was most emphatically not intended!
