Fictional biographyEdit

On the surface Chris and Christy Cross were just your average suburban couple. But when they sprang into action, Chris could take virtually any shape (such as a plane, a robot, a rubber ball, a perfect double of a villain, etc.). Christy could, as her name implied, shrink to microscopic size. Frequently tagging along on their adventures was their little dog, Trouble. The duo was a new concept for superhero cartoons in that they were the first African-American man/woman duo, and that they did not change into superhero costumes when the need to use their powers came, or adopt a "secret identity", simply wearing ordinary clothes. They were generally seen in lightweight adventures that were resolved simply, although a few episodes had them dealing with major crimes or a supernatural evil. Some times if the need arose, Christy and Chris would use their powers not to fight crime, but to accomplish household chores.
