I consider this the Kim Possible Thread.  There is a Simpson Thread, Kablam Thread, South Park Thread, and Family Guy Thread.

Okay, here is why I like the show Kim Possible:

1. Good Writers- 
Co-Creators Mark McCorkle and Bob Schooley have written some of the episodes on the show.  They both were once writers of two popular cartoons from the 1980's: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and The Real Ghostbusters.  The show has a similar type of humor as Matt Groening, only more PG-ish and has less Social Commentary.  Kim Possible is by far the best show Disney has done in recent years.

2. Good Voice Actors- 
Kim Possible has attracted many voice actors.  John DiMaggio,  Lauren Tom, Dan Castellaneta,  Maurice LaMarche and Ricardo Montalban has made guest appearances.

Nancy Cartwright who does the voice of Bart Simpson does the voice of Rufus.

3. Futurama similarities-
DiMaggio's Draken and Motor Ed both sound very much like Bender.  DiMaggio's also done minor characters using his Sal voice.  Brings back memories. 

Kim and Ron are Fry and Leela as teenagers.  If you notice the similaries, it is very haunting.  Ron comes up with crazy ideas as Fry.  Kim saves Ron many times as Leela saves Fry.  Of course Ron saves Kim once and a while as does Fry saves Leela.  And just recently, fans are going wild to learn that there may be a love interest between Kim and Ron, just like how us Futurama fans went crazy to see Fry and Leela finally get together.  And like Futurama it faces early cancellation, but only due to a dumb policy Disney has for their shows.

4. Kim Possible is not the typical spy girl cartoon-
Unlike, Totally Spies and those other cartoon female spy shows, Kim does not fit that stereotype.  She doesn't stop to put on make-up before saving the world or do other things that those other cartoon female spies do.  She has a Leela-like quality.  I've read reviews of Kim Possible being a cartoon verison of Alias.  So, you can't put Kim Possible on the same list with Totally Spies and Mary-Kate and Ashley in Action.

5. Kim Possible was one of the influences for my SpyOrama fanfics-

In addition to James Bond, Get Smart and other spy films, Kim Possible has influenced me to come up with ideas for how SpyOrama.

John DiMaggio plays the voice of both Dr. Draken and Motor Ed, seriously.  Two popular villains of Kim Possible.

Lauren Tom and Dan Castellaneta were in the same episode.  Dan played one of Draken's goons, and Lauren Tom played a character called Yoshiko

Yoshiko: I am Yoshiko, translator for Nakasumi-san.
(Ron slicks his hair back)
Ron: Y'know, I'm looking for a lucky someone to go to a dance with me...
(Yoshiko whispers to Nakasumi)
(Gong sounds)
(Nakasumi mutters back)
Yoshiko: Uhhh... Nakasumi-san says he's very flattered, but given the current crisis, he feels it would be... inappropriate... to go to the dance.
Ron: No! Ew, no! I meant--

Maurice LaMarche and Phil LaMarr were in the same episode.  Maurice played a scientist, Professor Acari, and Phil played a detention student named Vinne.  He also did another character in another.

Kim: Why would you build a nano sized explosive?
Professor Acari: I have a lot of time on my hands.  (And he's not a villain.)

Kim: Jr., Vinney, Big Mike, *what* are you staring at?
Jr.: Cheerleader, you've got a zit.
Vinney: Cheerleaders don't get zits.
Jr.: Oh, than maybe it's a tiny, explosive device.

Kim: Looks bad. He's got some kind of ray-thingy!
Ron: What kind of ray-thingy?
Drakken (shouting from the air): Gravatomic!

Vinnie: Aw, man! That's gravatomic!

With the exception of John DiMaggio, all these voice actors had small parts for Kim Possible.  However, I think that shows how much the loved doing the show that they were willing to do these small roles.
