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 started as a short film made by creator Maxwell Atoms back in 1996. The film is about Billy wanting his inner demons out of him and Mandy wanting to saw him in half and Grim would emerge during the process. The film has not emerged since it's in a film roll according to Atoms. But there is a picture of what the film looked like, Billy looks pretty much the same but Mandy has major differences than her appearance in the show: she has pig tails, she has an evil smile, and she has a nose.

I love this TV show. Its dark theme is such a nice alternative from all the other cartoons on Cartoon Network. The series follows Billy and Mandy as they torment the Grim Reaper after coming to 'own' him after he attempted to take away Billy's pet hamster.
The idea of taking something as harrowing as death itself and turning it into a kids cartoon is a really good one and works extremely well. The fact that this show could so easily have been chilling really benefits it. If the theme was taken the other way and told darker this show would make a great film.
The character of Mandy in particular is so refreshing. In comparison to Billy who is basically an identikit of every single other cartoon character on the channel; stupid, clumsy etc, Mandy is a sinister little girl and so entertaining to watch. She is the perfect match for the Grim Reaper. You can always can count on her to do one horribly twisted little thing each episode is hysterical.
I strongly recommend this cartoon, if only to see the deadpan little Mandy. Shes so evil.
