  • 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.

James Bond Jr. is an animated series named after James Bond's nephew, who happens to be the main protagonist. James Junior is secretly following into his Uncle James' footsteps. The theme song even alludes to this by mentioning that "he learned the game from his uncle James".

Tropes:

  • Daddy's Little Villain: Goldfinger's daughter, Goldie.
  • Did Not Do the Research: The "Junior" of the protagonist's name was abbreviated "Jr", like Americans do, but James is British and British people abbreviate "Junior" as "Jnr". Justified in that the series is American.
  • Expository Theme Tune: The theme song helpfully informs us that "he learned the game from his uncle James" and "James Bond Jr. chases S.C.U.M. around the world".
  • Expy: S.C.U.M., a stand-in for S.P.E.C.T.R.E. from the films.
  • Fun with Acronyms: S.C.U.M.
  • Girl of the Week: Which part of "he learned the game from his uncle James" you didn't get?
  • Kidanova
  • Meaningful Name: Naturally, being based on the Bond films, half the villains have these. For example, a pirate named Walker D. Plank.
  • Nebulous Evil Organisation: S.C.U.M.
  • Nephewism
  • A Pirate 400 Years Too Late: Captain Walker D. Plank
  • Pirate Parrot: Captain Walker D. Plank. Even his parrot has an eyepatch and a wooden leg.
  • Preppy Name: Trevor Noseworthy IV.
  • Reverse Polarity: IQ reverses the polarity all the time. He once took control of the bad guy's helicopter with a simple remote control and some polarity reversal.
  • Say My Name Trailer
  • Sins of Our Fathers: At least two girls in the series fit this trope. In the episode "Never Lose Hope", Warfield Academy got a new science teacher whose father was believed to be a S.C.U.M. agent until James Senior arrested him. Believing her father to be innocent and wanting to make James Senior know how she felt, she went after James Junior. It was later revealed that her father was not in prison but under a protection program. In "Appointment in Macau", James befriended Lily Mai, whose father was one of the heads of the Raven Triad. Actually, he was a mole working for the Interpol.
  • Sixty Five Episode Cartoon
  • Spin Offspring: Not only the titular character is James Bond's nephew, he also has friends who are related to some of James Bond's allies. I.Q. is Q's grandson; Gordo is Felix Leiter's son. Not to mention that one of his foes is Goldfinger's daughter, Goldie.
  • Spoiled Brat: Trevor Noseworthy IV
  • Surfer Dude: Gordo Leiter
  • Teen Superspy
