Has anybody here seen Grossology?

Here's a FYI about it:

Grossology is a Canadian animated television series produced by Nelvana, and based loosely on the non-fictional children’s book series of the same name by Sylvia Branzei. It debuted on the YTV network in Canada on September 29, 2006, and was first shown on Discovery Kids in the United States on January 13, 2007. It also aired on Jetix on June 2, 2007 and Kix! from September 15, 2008 in the United Kingdom; in Nickelodeon last March in South East Asia, and aired on ABC TV in Australia in December of 2007.
This series is painstakingly animated using the partially-developed software Toonboom Harmony (and later, Toonboom Digital Pro). The first season consists of 26 half-hour intallments, and the second season has premiered on September of 2008. The principal character designs were done by Faruk Cemalovic (who is also the character designer for Nelvana's 6teen).
Ty and Abby are a brother and sister crime-fighting team who report to the secret government facility named Department of Grossology [1]. Each episode of the series follows the pair on adventures based on real scientific facts. Aided by their friend Lab Rat (a human), Ty and Abby face many disgusting criminals.
  • Abby Archer (voiced by Krystal Meadows) [2]- Abby unravels mysteries so disgusting no adult will touch them. She loves everything gross and slimy – nothing grosses her out. Abby likes to test her limits to see if there is something so gross, so slimy, so disgusting, that it will make even her, the Queen of Squeam, turn green. So far nothing has come close. Although she closely resisted gagging at gross sights on a rare number of occasions (in "The Slim Slime Man" and "Go Fish," for example), the only exception was in "Yack Attack", when she unknowingly drank contaminated water and threw up. She gets covered in slop the most, and being dirty has yet affected her trademark ponytail. On the field, she is a competent fighter. She holds a severe grudge against not only villains like Lance Boil, but her school rival Paige. Unlike her younger brother Ty, she is athletic and depends on her instincts and feelings at times, however sometimes her feelings cloud her judgment when she has an affection for the suspect in question. Throughout the series she has shown interest in drama and sports like volleyball. She is scared of leeches as shown in the episode "Vein Drain". Abby and Ty share ownership of their kitten Hairball. She also tried out for the volleyball team at the goading of her father Harvey, who wanted her to live his dream through her.
  • Ty Archer (voiced by Michael Cohen) - Ty is Abby's little brother and a hard kid to faze. His cool, analytical mind takes everything in. He sees himself as a scientist and he takes his job very seriously, too seriously if you listen to Abby. In his mind, science is everything, and his goal is to be remembered with the very best in his field. He and Lab Rat share many common interests. On the field, Ty pilots/drives the GRS-1 and is great at strategic manoeuvres. His quick thinking has saved the day many times. His utility pack doubles up as a jet pack. Ty owns a chemistry set at home and often does analyses on things he finds (eg. Hairball’s hairballs). He gets tongue tied around his love interest Naomi. It was hinted in “Queen for a Day” that he is afraid of clowns.

Thoughts, anyone?

I used to own one of the books a long ass time ago. Didn't realize they made a show.
