Storyline

A secret government plan to dig up historical figures and clone them has worked. It is 16 years later, and the clones are now in high school. The five main characters are Abe Lincoln, an all around nice but naive guy who lusts after the school sexpot Cleopatra, who is dating the macho JFK. Also, Abe's two best friends are Joan of Arc, an angst ridden goth girl who is in love with him, and Gandhi, a none-stop party animal. Clone High bravely tackles challenging teen issues, such as sleep deprivation, catching ADD from toilet seats, the evils of litter, and having the guy you like not like you back the same way you like him. Will Abe get together with Cleo, or be thwarted by the handsome JFK? Will Joan finally get Abe to notice her? Who's to say? Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The episode, "Raisin the Stakes" contains multiple subliminal messages. DNA Dan, the school's mascot, appears saying, "Let's Go to the Dark Side". At the PTA meeting, when Principal Scudworth starts talking, a picture of him and the words, "Scudworth is you're favorite character!" flash across the screen. After the first commercial break, where many of the characters are sitting in J.F.K.'s van smoking raisins, a picture of an anthropomorphic raisin smoking a "human doobie" can be seen in one frame. When J.F.K. is sitting in his wheelchair with a broken leg, the message, "I Buried Ponce" flashes across the screen (a reference to the phrase, "I buried Paul", which can allegedly be heard at the end of the Beatles' "Strawberry Fields Forever"). During Abe's hallucination with the real Abe Lincoln, a cartoon re-creation of the famous painting of Joan of Arc flashes across Joan's face as she yells, "Aaa-eee-aa-ee-abe". As Ghandi and the dragon fly over the school at the end, the phrase, "For more information about raisins, consult your local library" flashes across the screen. See more »

Sweet!!
17 February 2003 | by (Buffalo, NY) – See all my reviews

MTV has helped make yet another good show, which is looking to be the best since Daria. Daria hasn't been on in a while; its last episode was shown in June 2001, and its series finale college movie was shown a little more than a year ago (as of the date of this review). Celebrity Deathmatch was also good, but even though it's not officially finished, it disappeared months ago. <:(

Based from the number of reviews I've seen so far, this show has already been welcomed with its fair share of praise. And yes, I agree completely. Clone High is another clever teen toon, using a bit of History for primary inspiration. The characters have little (if anything) in common to their predecessors (especially Mohanti Ghandi (excuse me if I misspelled anything)), but that's the fun of the show. It basically covers many teen topics, particularly peer pressure. The simplistic designs (possibly taken from one of Cartoon Network's cartoons) adds to the show's humor.

The main characters are: Abe Lincoln, the normal good-guy, Joan of Arc, a goth with a hint of sensitivity (not much like Daria), Mohanti Ghandi, the reckless yet lovable "cool dude", Cleopatra, part of the popular crowd, and J(ohn)F(itzgerald)K(ennedy), another popular guy (seemingly among the women). Also, there's the principal and robot vice-principal. Thru each episode, you'll notice that the first five characters are not the only clones existing in the show.

One thing I like about MTV is that unlike such channels as Nickelodeon or the Disney Channel, it's not afraid to reserve its material for the older crowd, in this case, the high school audience. Nick and Disney usually stay with the tried-and-true pre-teen crowd, and with a few exceptions, create a few lame programs cheaply disguised as "teen shows". The only let-down for MTV is that they keep up with even their best programs during their run, but immediately abandon them once they get cancelled. This trend is inevitable for Clone High, so we better enjoy it while we can.

One thing about Clone High was that it was another one of those good shows that appears out of nowhere. I first saw it this past MLK Day while I was channel hopping, but some sources say that the show first premiered in Canada in November 2002. Nonetheless, Clone High is a good show that's destined for a wonderful future.
