About Bruno the Kid:


Bruno the Kid follows the adventures of Bruno, a 11-year-old boy who becomes a top spy for a secret espionage organisation, travelling the world looking to sort out criminals and other assorted types of evil. The organization, named Globe, contacts Bruno via his computer and a special gadget watch, and are completely unaware of their top spy's youthfulness, as he hides behind a computer simulated avatar of a full grown man (in the image of Bruce Willis).

The members of Globe that Bruno works with in person, such as Jarlesburg and Harris, are unaware that Globe does not know Bruno's actual age, and assume that the organisation must know what they are doing sending the boy into dangerous situations.


Each episode features Bruno managing to live a double-life without his parents' or friends’, including Missy, knowledge. In one episode, he tells his parents that he is camping in the garden and he sets up a torch to project a fake silhouette of himself onto the side of the tent, so that it looks like he is inside it. Meanwhile, with an alibi set up, Bruno will be out saving the world, or foiling a major heist with the aid of his British spy partner Jarlesburg. In another episode, one of Bruno's classmates caught Bruno on camera in the process of carrying out a spy mission, and tried to blackmail him; however, Bruno erased the video tape and his secret was safe: his classmate was unable to expose him. Later in the series, Jarlesburg quits being Bruno's partner, after hesitating to fire a weapon in fear that he'll hit Bruno. Bruno objects to Jarley quitting the team. Jarley eventually came to his senses and returned to being Bruno's partner. He apologized to Bruno for quitting. In the course of each mission, they usually meet Harris (a spoof of the character 'Q' in the James Bond books and films) who supplies Bruno with gadgets which Bruno usually finds a use for later on in the episode.
