I'm looking for tips on identifying a cartoon (western animation?) I saw briefly in the 90s at a hotel in Africa (possibly on a European channel?). Here's a description of the scene I remember:

A training arena, with a viewing area overlooking it. An older kid (male) is talking to one of the supervisors in the viewing area, watching the new recruits below. Cocky and self-assured.

One of the recruits below (female) finishes all the way through Level 10. The cocky kid brags something, perhaps how quickly he completed the training, or how easy the training is.

The supervisor announces with a confident smirk: "Level 11."

The boy is surprised.

Three gigantic robots emerge into the training arena, surrounding the girl recruit. They aim giant guns at her on the ground, then level her flat with blobs of goo or something.

The boy shrugs and laughs. So much for Level 11. Of course she couldn't survive all that.

The supervisor says: "Just watch."

After a half second, the goo on the ground glows an outline of the girl's body... and she disappears. Into the floor.

A few seconds later, she reappears, popping through the armor of the giant robots, one at a time, ripping out wires and circuits and etc., then bringing all three giant robots to their knees.

The boy is (rightfully) astounded.

Any leads on what this might be from? Thanks!

  • Japanese animation? Or Western-style?

  • I am 99% certain you're not talking about "Bubblevicious", but in case... dailymotion.com/video/x2qnurz

  • Western-style animation. I think the hotel was in West Africa, so possibly on a European channel. Adding this information to the post.

This sounds like an episode of the X-Men animated series, but I don't remember that exact scene. But it sounds like something that Kitty Pride would do and the description of the room sounds like their Danger Room.

  • Can you remember which X-Men animated series? There is more than one. If you could do that and narrow down which episode it was, possibly using IMDB, that would improve your answer considerably.

  • I didn't even know there was more than one X-Men animated series. I only saw a few episodes, and that was over a decade ago. I realize that it was an incomplete answer, but I don't have enough points to have created a new comment.

  • This sounds really relevant; I found a very similar scenario described in marvelanimated.wikia.com/wiki/Danger_Room_(Pryde_of_the_X-Men). But this isn't the same thing that I remember from the cartoon.

  • the '90s X-Men animated series didn't have Kitty Pryde so either it is from the Pryde of the X-Men pilot (which OP indicates it is not), it's from after the '90s (possibly X-Men Evolution?) or it's not X-Men...
