"My Life As A Teenage Robot" Theme Song (HQ) Episode Opening Credits Nick Animation

My Life as a Teenage Robot is an animated television series, produced by Frederator Studios for the Nickelodeon cable channel and distributed by Nelvana Limited outside of the US.

The series follows the adventures of a 16-year-old robot girl named Jenny Wakeman (a.k.a. XJ-9), who was created by her mother Dr. Nora Wakeman and designed to protect Earth while also trying to live the life of a normal teenage girl.

Nickelodeon debuted the series 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 the Nicktoons Network. The series is distributed outside the United States by the Canadian animation studio, Nelvana Limited.

The series was based on the Oh Yeah! Cartoons short "My Neighbor was a Teenage Robot" which was aired on January 5, 1999 and created by Rob Renzetti. This show first aired on August 1, 2003 and ended on May 2, 2009. It won a Primetime Emmy Award and Eleven Annie Awards.

Plot

XJ-9 (Jenny, as she calls herself) is a highly sophisticated battle robot created by Dr. Norene Wakeman to be a defender of Earth. Despite enjoying her superhero life, Jenny also wants to fit in and live the life of a normal teenage girl. Jenny and Wakeman live in the fictional futuristic town of Tremorton, and live next door to Jenny's best friends Brad and Tuck Carbunkle.

At school, Jenny has an ongoing rivalry with the Crust Cousins, Brit and Tiff, the popular girls in school. She also met and became a close friend to Sheldon, a somewhat stereotypical but very intelligent geek who is madly in love with her.

Adding to her trouble is that Jenny is constantly being dogged by the all-robotic Cluster Empire, whose queen, Vexus, wants her to join their world of robots (by force if necessary).

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.
