A catchy alt-pop opening song that’s somewhere between the Spin Doctors, old school No Doubt and Blues Traveler. Cute, simple opening animation that looks like it was probably done with markers and crayons. Adorable monsters that make Pikachu appear pathetic. Cripplingly cute characters, calling to mind Kodocha and Ojamajo Doremi. It’s a total bait and […]

Clone High takes place in a high school made up of teenaged clones of historical figures. How could this show, with its off-the-wall humor, challenging teen issues (including sleep deprivation, catching ADD from toilet seats, women playing sports, being upstaged by John Stamos, and getting drunk off alcohol-free beer) and bizarre concept, possibly fail?
