Alex Adventure is an American television series created by Rob Renzetti. Set in the fictional town of Plainville, the series follows the adventures of a 16-year-old robot boy named Alex Blackman (a.k.a. HA-9), who was created by his mother Dr. Susan Blackman and designed to protect Earth, while also striving to live the life of a normal teenage boy.
The show often focuses on making lighthearted fun of typical teenage problems and other conventions of the teenage and superhero lives, mixed up with a blend of action and comedy sequences.
Nickelodeon debuted the series by airing the first episode of Alex Adventure 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 entire series is available on iTunes, Amazon DVD, and on Hulu.
Alex Adventure received mostly positive reviews from critics, being nominated for numerous awards, most prominently one Primetime Emmy Award and eleven Annie Awards.
Alex Blackman (model name: HA-9) voiced by Grey DeLisle, is a teenage robot boy created by Dr. Susan Blackman (Candi Milo). Susan is very close to Alex and considers herself Alex's mother in addition to being simply his creator. Alex 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 Alex wants to live the life of a normal teenage boy (without his mom getting in his way and nagging him to do his superhero duties) and hang out with his three close friends Jeff (Siam Giambrone), his yin-yang brother Sumo (Tom Kenny) and Sheldon (Quinton Flynn).
