Dr. Dimensionpants is a Canadian animated television series created by Brad Peyton and produced by DHX Media and The Factory Backwards Entertainment.[2] Originally set to launch in the winter of 2014 on Teletoon,[3] the series instead premiered on November 6, 2014, as well as on Télétoon.[4]

Plot[edit]

Kyle Lipton was a normal 12-year-old kid, until a portal opened and dropped a pair of "The Dimensionpants", also called the 'Pants of Power' or 'Power Pants'. It is one of several powerful clothing items constructed in the Unicrone dimension, which also included socks and a summer dress.[5] When he wears them, he becomes a new superhero called Dr. Dimensionpants. Now Kyle has all the superhero powers he ever wanted, along with responsibility. With the help of a talking unicorn named Philip, Dr. Dimensionpants learns his powers to save the dimensions, while dealing with normal kid issues.

Characters[edit]

  • Philiponius[6] ("Philip") Chickpea[7] (voiced by Richard Ian Cox) is Kyle's unicorn mentor and occasional sidekick. Prior to Kyle he had taught 37 others to serve in the role of Dr. Dimensionalpants, and is able to restrict access to their powers.

Lipton family[edit]

  • Kyle Bradley Lipton[8] (voiced by Samuel Vincent) is a 12-year-old boy who is the latest to adopt the secret identity of Dr. Dimensionpants.
  • Amanda Lipton (voiced by Kazumi Evans) is Kyle's younger sister who is a genius and has a blog on the web.
  • Ann-Mary Lipton (voiced by Kathleen Barr) is the mother of Amanda and Kyle.
  • Dunley Lipton[8] (voiced by Brian Drummond) is the father of Amanda and Kyle. He would like to spend everyday only with his son, but Kyle is always busy with his superhero duties. Dunley loves Kyle very much, and so does him.

School[edit]

  • Rebecca Stella[10] (voiced by Shannon Chan-Kent) is a popular blonde that Kyle moons over who turns out to be the daughter of Glass Skull.
