Adopted By Aliens is a website featuring episodic Flash cartoons created by award-winning filmmakers and identical twin sisters, Shawnee and Shawnelle Gibbs. It made its internet debut in June 2004 and has been growing in popularity since. With an array of quirky and fun-loving characters, the series follows in the footsteps of such notable animated series as Fairly OddParents and Scooby Doo by placing children in adventurous situations.

The cartoon follows the adventures of Whitney Ward, a 12-year-old foster child, and her new extraterrestrial family.


In 2003, after being dubbed a part of "the newest generation of black filmmakers" by the Oakland Tribune, Shawnee and Shawnelle went to work developing Adopted By Aliens. The series has screened in several film festivals and will be available on DVD in 2006.
