• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

The class of 20WTF.

Galaxy High School was a 1986 TMS Entertainment Sitcom Saturday Morning Cartoon. Lasted only one season on CBS.

Aimee and Doyle were originally at a human high school together. Aimee was a bookworm, Doyle a jock. They get transferred to Galaxy High, a boarding school, where they are the only Earthlings in attendance. Aimee finds herself one of the in-crowd because of her past academic record and the fact that the student body has significantly more males than females. Doyle is at the bottom of the social ladder — they don't do football at Galaxy High — but he can't leave because this is his last chance to graduate (he was not getting good grades). Naturally, most episodes are about his misadventures.

The laws of physics and every other known science are broken repeatedly, and there was Mood Whiplash at times. Rule of Funny and Rule of Cool are trying to be in effect.


  • Alien Lunch
  • Aliens Speaking English
  • An Ice Person: Literal example, Prof. Icenstein.
  • Audience Surrogate
  • Beautiful All Along: Aimee looked pretty hot in that sweater vest, but Doyle didn't seem to notice until she got pimped-out galactic style.
  • Book Dumb: Doyle
  • Brainless Beauty: Booey Bubblehead, a literal airhead.
  • Break the Haughty: Pretty much the entire series' point, as Doyle had to learn his lesson again and again and again.
  • Broken Record/Title Scream: The "Galaxy High!" chant during the opening acts as both.
  • The Complainer Is Always Wrong: If Doyle has a complaint about something, he is wrong. Doesn't matter if that something is dangerous, unnecessary, actually against the rules, whatever, he ultimately just needs to shut up and listen to Aimee.
  • Drugs Are Bad: The Brain Blaster. The show was up for an award because of it.
  • Expository Theme Tune: Two kids will be chosen from Earth, to go to school at Galaxy High!
  • Fantastic Racism: There seems to be a good deal of animosity toward humans ("earth-people"), and in the case of Beef, outright bigotry.
  • Fish Out of Water
  • Gossipy Hens: Gilda Gossip is Exactly What It Says on the Tin. She even has more than one mouth!
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: Wendy Garbo. She's green only when jealous.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Or half alien hybrid, or... well, the PE teacher is some kind of centaur.
  • Human Aliens
    • Milo de Venus, as human as you or I save for having six arms.
    • Luigi, who just has weird hair and pigmentation. (Well, and sometimes spouts steam from the holes on his neck.)
  • Hey, It's That Voice! (Aimee... or should I say, Arcee?)
  • Humans Are Special (How special, and in what way, is sometimes open to interpretation)
    • Justified by the sheer novelty of it: Most of the aliens have never seen a human before.
    • There was one episode with a Martian flu epidemic that was wiping out the capacity for emotion. Humans can't catch it. And a human acting sufficiently jerkish can cure it!
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: Milo De Venus' name is a pun on the Venus de Milo statue, which has no arms while Milo has six of them.
  • Ironic Echo: Earlier in the first episode, Doyle asked Aimee to leave him alone so the other girls won't think they're dating. Later, when she and her friends were eating pizza at the place where he works to pay for his education, Doyle asked her why she was ignoring him and she reminded him that he was the one who asked her to leave him alone.
  • Jerkass: Beef.
  • Jerk Jock: One of the major themes of the series is Doyle getting his cosmic comeuppance for it.
    • Strangely, Beef is a far bigger jock, a far bigger jerk, and in general magnifies all of Doyle's negative traits many times over... but suffers for it less.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Doyle.
  • Mad Scientist (the science teacher)
  • Marilyn Maneuver: Aimee in the first episode. Her skirt lifts somewhat, as she gets sucked into a pneumatic tube twice and when she's seen exiting once.
  • Meaningful Name: Inverted. Doyle Cleverlobe is almost the stereotypical dumb jock.
    • However, Aimee's last name is Brightower, and she's certainly bright. More obvious examples include Gilda Gossip, Booey Bubblehead, Professor Icenstein, Ms. Mc Brain, Reggie Unicyle, and Coach Frogface.
  • Mood Whiplash
  • Nerds Are Sexy
  • No Accounting for Taste: Harry and Myrtle, constantly bickering and literally joined together!
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Mick Maggers is a near-miss.
  • Panty Shot: Aimee in "Welcome To Galaxy High". In one blink-and-miss-it-frame, she has a white panty peek as she exits the pneumatic tube before landing in the school's hallway. Also, before she enters another pneumatic tube with Milo and Doyle, there's another panty peek when the scene is paused as her skirt gets blown up slightly.
    • In the same episode, three cheerleading aliens exhibit white panties as they do a high kick.
    • Aimee has another in "The Beef Who Would Be King". This time a yellow panty shot, as she does a high kick on top of a cheerleader pyramid.
  • Pardon My Klingon: It doesn't take much imagination to figure out what the alien cuss words really mean.
  • Rule of Funny (with a dash of They Just Didn't Care)
  • She's Got Legs: Aimee's are revealed in the first episode, during her Marilyn Maneuver scenes due to air blowing from the pneumatic tubes.
    • Wendy Garbo's gams are often shown off, due to her wearing a leotard or bodysuit.
  • Slapstick: One should expect nothing less from a Chris Columbus vehicle.
  • Starfish Aliens: Most of the delightfully bizarre supporting cast.
  • Through a Face Full of Fur: When angered, Beef Bonk atypically turns blue briefly and steam shoots out of the holes on the sides of his neck.
  • Too Many Mouths: On tentacles.
  • Trrrilling Rrrs: Prof. Icenstein
  • Tsundere: Aimee
  • Will They or Won't They?: Doyle and Aimee.
