History: Betty is a little girl with a big secret. To her friends and family, she's the sweet and brainy girl next door, but when the galaxy beckons, she sheds her humdrum persona and becomes Atomic Betty, Galactic Guardian and Defender of the Cosmos.
While the citizens of Earth carry on with their every day lives, Atomic Betty zips across the galaxy on daring and valiant missions. Whether it's to save a race of space monkeys from a giant caterpillar invasion or to rescue a kidnapped ambassador from a ruthless king, Atomic Betty lives up to her role of Galactic Guardian.
Betty is known throughout the Milky Way, and just so happens to be a regular at the Dog Star Cafe the greasiest fast food joint this side of Pluto. But here on Earth, nobody suspects a thing and that's just the way Betty likes it. If her Mom and Dad knew she was out zooming through the cosmos without a license, she'd be grounded!
