Summary

While chasing a scarlet fever virus, Ozzy, Drix and the virus get sucked up from Frank by a mosquito and arrive on young Hector Cruz's body. Installed as Private Investigators, the partners vow to protect the well being of Hector from any viral threat.

Characters

Main characters

  • Osmosis "Ozzy" Jones (Phil LaMarr) - A white blood cell with a dark sense of humor. He works as a private-eye in the city of Hector. He and Drix were originally from the city of Frank, the character portrayed in the movie, although they were transferred to Hector through a mosquito while chasing a scarlet fever virus aptly named Scarlet. As most crime-fighting heros do, Ozzy had a nearly unlimited amount of smart remarks that he uses frequently when fighting viruses, as well as sarcasm for anyone else.
  • Drixenol "Drix" (Jeff Bennett) - A cold pill and Ozzy's fellow private eye. They have an office inside Hector's left retina ("prime real estate"). His right arm is a multi-launcher which launches various chemical containers stored in his torso though the most common is an ice pill which freezes villains. The right arm also contains a phone, and other gadgets including an eggbeater (apparently the only thing the arm can't do is make a decent milkshake),and a crude clamp-like claw usable as a hand. Drix is very cautious and completely honest (and quite gullible), which puts him at odds with the devil-may-care Ozzy. He often tries to "fit in" with the other cells in the body, usually failing to comprehend the concepts.
  • Hector Cruz (a.k.a. Hector City/The City of Hector) (Justin Cowden) - The Cuban American teenager that the show revolves around. He likes girls and listening to music. He is foolhardy, a risk taker, and somewhat ignorant, all probably to further the show's plot. Hector also has a crush on Christine, which was so strong he was able to go cold turkey on smoking for her sake. He reminds Ozzy of Frank at Hector's age, reminded him that this was the age where Franks life took a turn for the worse so decides to stay to prevent that from happening. In one episode when Hector went on a white water rafting trip with his older cousin he got Appendicitis. Hector has a dog named Uno, an older sister, and a mom and dad. In another episode Hector learned a lesson in proper dental hygiene when he got a Cavity from eating too much sugar.

City of Hector

Police
  • Maria Amino (Tasia Valenza) - A white blood cell and a cop in the city of Hector. She speaks with a Spanish accent. She is highly skilled at fighting and possibly the most competent cop inside of Hector except for Ozzy. She has shown to have a crush on Drix throughout the series. Her name comes from the amino acid.
  • Chief Gluteus (Jim Cummings) - A mean old muscle cell and the Chief of Police for the city of Hector. He hates both Ozzy and Drix and prefers to handle things himself, which often results in disasters. His name is from Gluteus Maximus, the scientific name for the muscles in the buttock.
Government
  • Mayor Paul Spryman (Alanna Ubach) - The naughty little mayor of the city of Hector. He is approximately the same age as Hector, and acts very immaturely, taking all the credit for the roundups Ozzy and Drix make. His decisions often put Hector's health in extreme danger as well as sometimes being completely ridiculous, where Maria commented that he once ordered all the cells to go to the left side to see if Hector would tip over.
  • Ellen Patella (Vivica A. Fox) - An attorney-at-law who helps new cells find their place in Hector. Ozzy has a crush on her as well, although she has no interest in him.
Other
  • The Mole (Jeffrey Tambor) - A former secret agent, and klutz, and generally used as comic relief, he has his own adrenaline supply, and in every one of his appearances he tries to "vanish mysteriously" (failing to do so every time in comical ways). He is mostly known as very paranoid, often thinking that he is being hunted down, or people are watching him. Despite this he has a lot of contacts and apparently nothing happens in Hector that he doesn't know about, this makes him a good source of information. His role is similar to the flu shot from the movie.
  • Penicillin G - A Penicillin injected into Hector to help fight Strepfinger. He is charming, responsible, and amazingly intelligent. He currently patrols Hector's lungs. He is an obvious parody of James Bond.
  • Dander - Drix's pet dog germ that came from Hector's dog Uno. Like cells, he can shapeshift and often changes his head into Ozzy.
  • Backseat - A sentient "supercomputer" Drix built in Ozzy's car without his permission.

Humans

Hector's Family
  • Mom
  • Dad
  • Sister
Other
  • Christine (Kimberly Brooks) - A girl in Hector's school that has a crush on him, though they don't admit to each other. Ozzy once got stuck in her body, where he is treated somewhat as a celebrity as coming from Hector, suggesting how strong her feelings for Hector really are.
  • Travis - Hectors classmate and best friend. He is an American with Asian origin.

Germs, Viruses and Villains

This is a list of the bad guys in order of appearance:

  • Scarlet Fever (Tim Curry) - A lizard-like scarlet fever virus, possibly related to Thrax, the movie's villain, that makes Hector get a fever. He was transported along with Ozzy and Drix from Frank to Hector. Fever sucks up all of Hector's fluids that make him active, mutating to become more virulent in the process, and gives Hector a slow and fatal fever. Luckily, when he and Ozzy were fighting in a police helicopter, they were heading for Hector's spleen where it appeared to be a giant fan. Ozzy escaped the helicopter but Fever was killed once he and the helicopter were shredded into the spleen. Hector was then back to his normal self and his fluids returned. Despite his single appearance, he is seen in the opening theme. Because of his abilities, he is more resistant to Drix's Ice Pill than most other Viruses as his temperature usually causes him to defrost moments later.
  • Ernst Strepfinger (Brad Garrett and Jim Cummings) - A powerful germ whose goal is to make Hector sick. He has a large gang of germs and viruses to do his dirty work. In "Strepfinger", Strepfinger is planning on giving Hector a nasty case of pneumonia, but in the end, he gets sucked out from his hideout in the lungs along with his pet. In "Ozzy Jr.", Strepfinger returns, but this times he has an eye patch on his right eye and his pet has an eye patch, too. He plans to infect Hector with bacteria. In "Lights Out", he plans to wipe out Hector's memories. In "Tricky Ricardo", he tricks Ricardo into thinking that he is working for Strepfinger, who was planning to give Hector cancer, but in the end, Strepfinger gets stuck on one of the cotton balls and fell down the drain of the shower. Strepfinger is a parody of the stereotypical Bond villain with a particular emphasis on Auric Goldfinger and Ernst Stavro Blofeld.
  • Rhoda Virus - An intestinal virus, brought in on a bean, which causes Hector to experience extreme flatulence. In the end, she and her minions are trapped in a gas bubble, killing them.
  • Protozilla (Frank Welker) - An allergen with a weak form and a monster form with his monster form only usable in a body that is allergic to him, however Ice pills cause him to revert back to his normal form. His most defining feature is that he has 2 thumbs which gives him away as the allergy. He was a giant monster that terrorized the city of Hector and made it look like it was Drix's dog who was causing the disaster (meanwhile, outside of Hector, Hector himself had a dog and his mother believed the dog was causing his allergies). Ozzy, Drix and Drix's dog confronted Protozilla at Hector's nose and when Hector sneezed, Protozilla was sucked out and killed. And back with Hector, it was revealed his allergies are really from a certain flower his mother was bringing in and not the dog.
  • Smirch (Danny Bonaduce) - A germ that plans to make Hector get a zit ("Street Up"). He also managed to trick Drix when he wanted to learn how to be cool, when he is actually helping him get into an oil refinery to grow gigantic to give Hector a zit—right on Picture Day. Drix defeats him by dropping toothpaste on him, shrinking him down to tiny size where he's captured.
  • Nick O' Teen (Tim Curry) - A tobacco addictive that plans to make Hector smoke ("Where There's Smoke"). Nick can shapeshift and release clouds of smoke that brainwash cells and makes them do Nick's evil bidding, becoming more powerful the more he controls. He has three lackeys: Butane (Jeff Bennett), Carbon Monoxide (Tara Strong), and Tar (Frank Welker). Nick's lackeys were killed before him in confrontations with Ozzy and Drix but when Nick was finally powerful enough to hold Ozzy and Drix back from foiling his plans, Hector decided not to smoke anymore in favor of Chirstine and Nick weakened by him breaking the addiction, giving Ozzy the chance to squash him under his shoe.
  • Sal Monella (Henry Winkler) - A gangster germ who is planning to poison Hector.
  • Sylvian Fisher (Brian Posehn): A nerdy brain cell who was trying to become mayor in the upcoming election. He planned to use a growth formula to make Hector grow and blame it on Spryman's carelessness.
  • General Malaise (Charlie Adler) - A bacterium who uses sugar to make his army of bacteria multiply. He develops evil plots to make Hector eat sugar. Of course, he and all his troops were killed when they were in Hector's teeth and he was visiting the dentist. They fell out through a sink to die off. They also dissolve when they eat salt. General Malaise is an obvious parody of Napoleon Bonaparte.
  • Professor Nightmare - A nightmare that originated from a movie Hector saw. Ozzy and Drix enter Hector's dreams and help him overcome his fear and crush the nightmare.
  • Chief Maximus (Rob Paulsen) - The Chief of Police in the city of Christine (a girl that Hector likes) that teams up with the Pneumonic.
  • The Pneumoniac (Pat Fraley) - A germ who is planning to give Christine pneumonia ("An Out of Body Experience parts 1 & 2").
  • Mother Worm (Frank Welker) - A worm that came from a sausage Hector barely cooked.Is very reminescent of Japanese monsters especially Godzilla even having atomic breath. Was killed by having medcine shoved down her throat, causing her to explode.
  • Shane (Danny Cooksey) - A leader of a testosterone gang that one time tied up Mayor Spryman and took over his office, turning Hector into a bad kid.
  • Stickety (Rob Paulsen) - A sticky, bad cholesterol beatnik who kidnaps a bunch fat cell children in an attempt to clog Hector's artery. He sees what he does not as crimes but as art.
  • Cryo (Susan Silo) - A virus that one time tried to give Hector hypothermia, despite the fact that hypothermia is when the core temperatures of the body decrease to a critical level. Therefore, it is not a disease. She has the ability to fire freezing blasts from her elbows. She was eventually destroyed when struck by a nerve impulse from Hector's spine.
  • Billy Bob Bile (Frank Welker) - A stereotypical hill-billy and owner of an appendix hotel who was causing detours which resulted in Hector's appendix almost bursting. Only a quick trip to a hospital saved Hector's life and removed Billy's hotel. Billy attempted to return to civilization, only Ozzy and Drix to slap cuffs on his wrists. He tries to escape, only to take a trip to the small intestine.
