Cybersix (サイバーシックス, Saibāshikkusu) is an animated television series based on an Argentine comic strip series of the same name created by Argentine authors Carlos Trillo (story) and Carlos Meglia (art). The series was produced by the Vancouver-based Network of Animation (NoA) and animated in Japan by TMS Entertainment. Many of the comic's darker themes had to be toned down for the show in order to make it appropriate for all audiences.[1] The series originally aired on Teletoon in Canada,[2][3] Kids Station in Japan, Telefe in Argentina and Fox Kids in the United States.

The music for the series was composed by Robbi Finkel.[4] Its opening and ending songs were composed by Finkel with lyrics by Robert Olivier and sung by jazz vocalist Coral Egan.[5] On May 6, 2000 Cybersix won "Best Animated Production" and "Best Overall Sound of an Animated Production" at the Leo Awards.[6] On April 28, 2001, the series won "Special Mention for the Best Science Fiction Program" at the Pulcinella Awards in Italy for that year's competition.[7]


A leather-clad female gynoid named Cybersix protects the town of Meridiana at night where she fights the machinations of the scientist Dr. Von Reichter (who created her at night) and his cloned son José who is served by the Frankenstein's monster-resembling Fixed Ideas. Cybersix is also aided in fighting Dr. Von Reichter and José by her fellow creation in the form of a black panther named Data-7. During the day, she poses as a male teacher named Adrian Seidelman and is friends with science teacher Lucas Amato.[8]



Each episode had a production budget of US$360,000.[1] The series was cancelled after the first season due to conflicts with the studio.[9]
