Spanish Title: Chica Supersabia


The series stars WordGirl, a girl with superpowers whose secret identity is Becky Botsford, student. WordGirl was born on the fictional planet Lexicon (also a term referring to the vocabulary of a language or to a dictionary) but was sent away after sneaking onto a spaceship and sleeping there. Captain Huggy Face, a monkey who was a pilot in the Lexicon Air Force, piloted the ship, but lost control when WordGirl awoke, and crash-landed on Earth (more specifically in Fair City), a planet that affords WordGirl her superpowers, including flight and super strength. WordGirl utilizes these powers to save her adoptive home, using her downed spacecraft as a secret base of operations. WordGirl and Captain Huggy Face fight crime together.

WordGirl was adopted and provided an alter ego by Tim and Sally Botsford, who gave her the name Becky. While in her alter ego, she has a younger brother, TJ, obsessed with WordGirl, but still unknowingly a typical sibling rival to Becky. The Botsford family keeps Captain Huggy Face as a pet, naming him Bob. Becky attends Woodview Elementary School, where she is close friends with Violet Heaslip and the school newspaper reporter Todd “Scoops” Ming.

WordGirl tries to balance her superhero activities with her "normal" life. Doing battle with a rather odd grouping of villains, such as the Butcher, who can call into existence most any type of meat;His father Kid Potato who has similar powers over potatoes: elderly con-artist Granny May, with her knitting needles and projectile yarn; WordGirl's former friend Professor Steven Boxleitner, who became the cheese-obsessed Dr. Two Brains thanks to an albino mouse and a failed science experiment, fusing his brain with the animal; Chuck the Evil Sandwich-Making Guy, who has a sandwich for a head and whose weapons include condiments for sandwiches; colossal robot builder Tobey McCalister; self-cloning Lady Redundant Woman; The Birthday Girl, a spoiled-rotten parody of The Incredible Hulk; Invisibill, who can turn himself invisible; Ms. Question who has a befuddling question ray; Amazing Rope Guy, with no actual powers; Hal Hardbargain, who runs a villain equipment shop; Timmy Timbo, with the power to "sleep"; The Coach, who runs a villain's training center; Big-Left-Hand-Guy, who has an oversized left hand used for hailing Taxi's; Victoria Best, who plays hypnotic Flute music; and The Whammer, who speaks by interjecting the word "wham" in the most inopportune sentences. At the same time, she must worry about maintaining her second life as Becky, keeping people from discovering the truth and living normal family situations.
