Phantom Investigators is a 13-episode cartoon show that aired on Kids' WB in 2002, premiering on May 25 and ending on June 29. It was created using a surprising mixture of stop-motion animation (used for the main cast and the other citizens), puppetry (used for many of the supernatural creatures that are encountered), and live-action (used mainly for people who are dead, in other words, ghosts). The show was created by Stephen Holman, known for his work on Joe Normal for MTV's Liquid Television and Life with Loopy for Nickelodeon's KaBlam! which ran during all the duration.
The show revolved around four kids in junior high school. Three of them possess a different supernatural ability. Their group is known as The Phantom Investigators, or "P.I." for short. Together, they help solve supernatural mysteries that occur all over town. Sometimes they will simultaneously find a solution to a personal-problem they are dealing with in the beginning of the episode.
