WordGirl is an educational American animated TV series that originally started out as animated shorts that played after the PBS show Maya & Miguel but eventually branched out into its own full-length show in September 2007 and is still currently in production.
The show's premise follows the titular character, WordGirl, an alien super-hero that was raised by an average family on Earth under the name Becky Botsford, completely oblivious to her origin. Gifted with flight, super-speed, and an expansive vocabulary, she uses her powers to fight crime along with her pet monkey, Captain HuggyFace, and teach people, friend and foe alike, the meaning of different words.
