This series is a pairing of two separate cartoons. One is about the Grim Reaper, who after losing a bet, is forced to become the playmate of two children. One is Bill, a cheerful, but dimwitted little boy, and Mandy, a cynical, devious little girl. The other cartoon features the exploits of the evil Hector Cancarne, the disembodied brain of a man who plots world domination. Unfortunately, after his body exploded, his brain was placed in a jar and he became forced rely on a thick-headed bear named Boscoe to perform the physical tasks he was once capable of doing himself. Since the preliminary run of the cartoon, the "Evil" portion has peeled off and the exploits of Hector Cancarne is no longer its own cartoon. The series has been re-titled "The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy" and occasional appearances of cartoon characters from the preliminary "Evil" portion have made their way into an assortment of episodes.

Originally Maxwell Atoms wanted Grim to speak in a British accent and had Jonathan Harris in mind to voice him, when Greg Eagles auditioned and spoke in a Jamaican accent he was impressed and had him retooled. See more »

A clever show about two obnoxious children, accompanied by the Grim Reaper as their "best friend."
This show is one of the most hilarious cartoons I have ever seen! The only drawback is the sometimes violent and/or disgusting humor, so if you are uncomfortable about your children being exposed to that, it's probably a bad idea to allow them to watch this. Mandy is brilliantly voiced, and has an incredibly violent sense of humor. She frequently insults everybody, including her parents and other adults. Billy, on the other hand, is a happy-go-lucky idiot. In one episode, he remarks, "I guess nothing really gets to me." to which Mandy replies, "You know what they say: Ignorance is bliss." All in all, it's a wonderful show and Maxwell Atoms is a genius.I give it nine out of ten stars! Thumbs UP!
