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.

The show used to be called "Grim & Evil", and featured two segments of "The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy" and one segment of "Evil Con Carne", with some exceptions. Since then, the "Evil" segments have been removed from the show, and temporarily had his own show. See more »

This has got to be the greatest cartoon on TV ever.
I would say I am near obsessed with Billy and Mandy. This show is one of two, maybe three cartoons I ever turn straight to if it is on Cartoon Network at the time. I think the main reason I like it is because of Mandy; she makes Billy look like an even bigger idiot than he is, and makes the Grim Reaper look mediocre. She is smart, able to figure things out well, and her lines are especially funny due to her terse, deadpan attitude.
Grey DeLisle has got the best voice talents of anybody I've ever heard. She does such an outstanding job as Mandy, yet as Frankie Foster on Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, she sounds like a different person; it's amazing. The other actors do well also, and they do a much better job than those on some Anime cartoons currently playing.
One thing I wish they would cut out, though, is a good portion of crude humor. I'm sure 90 percent of cartoons today have crudeness that should be omitted. However, it is a small price to pay for the joy of watching such an original cartoon that is by no means generic. Every episode is completely distinct, unlike some cartoons whose episodes all follow two or three plots in an entire series.
