The Cybersix animated television series is the second and last adaption of the popular 1992 comic book series of the same name, produced in 1998 and released in the U.S. in 2000. The animated series was generally well-received internationally; however, in the U.S., the series was heavily censored and criticized for being too mature for its young audience.[1]


The plot of the series is taken from the comic book series; rather than omitting the more mature aspects of the comics, the animated series leaves certain things unexplained and instead makes reference to them. The story follows the protagonist of Cybersix, who has recently moved to the city of Meridiana and lives as a male high school literature teacher during the day and as the leather-clad superheroine during the night. Cybersix is soon discovered to be living in the city, so her creator and his clone-son frequently sends out their creations in an attempt to destroy her.


The animated series was first released in Canada and Argentina on September 6th, 1999, and a censored version was later released in the U.S. on August 19th, 2000, on the now-defunct television channel, Fox Kids. Fox Kids had heavily censored the series in order to make it more appropriate for its young audience, as well as cutting down on the run-time to make more time for commercials. The censorship had edited out parts of episodes, which removed mildly suggestive, violent, and "slow" scenes. There was also minor redubbing of certain words, and in the opening theme song, there are noticeably different vocals near the end of the song. The series was later pulled off the air three months later, on November 4th, 2000, having omitted one episode and left the last two episodes unaired. The majority of the episodes have been recorded and uploaded online.

The Fox Kids cut of the opening theme song has been found and uploaded onto the RetroJunk website.[2]

Five episodes of the Fox Kids edit were recorded on tape by the online user Stonegate Shadowlord and have been digitized and uploaded onto YouTube by the YouTube channel Media Finder.[3][4] An anonymous source emailed Media Finder and notified him that two more episodes were captured in low quality on a six-hour-long tape, currently available on[5] Media Finder then transferred these episodes to his YouTube channel. Another episode was found by Media Finder and uploaded onto his YouTube channel. As of May 2021, though, all found videos that have been posted to YouTube have been blocked due to copyright claims made by TMSanime, the owners of the show.

Nearly all of the episodes have been found, only two episodes remain that are partially found, Brainwashed and Full Moon Fascination.
