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.

Wow, do i take back my previous review! I love this show!
Ya know, I'm watching an episode of Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy right now where Billy has turned himself into chocolate. And now i realize how much I like this show. It's funny, weird, and good.
In my last review i did something very stupid and kept comparing this to another show. While I still think Billy and Mandy could use a darker, more twisted edge, the shows sweet weird edge is more than enough to make it better than most other cartoons. I repent! I really like this show! Forgive me!
Anyway, why do I like the show more now? Well I stopped trying to compare it to Invader zim. Zim's a great show, but it's not Billy and Mandy, and neither is Billy and Mandy Zim. I realized i needed to respect the show on it's own merits. I still may not love it as much as Zim, but man do i see the error of my ways and like the show for what it is: crazy, cool and funny!
