A secret government plan to dig up historical figures and clone them has work. 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

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 JFK's van smoking raisins, a picture of an anthropomorphic raisin smoking a "human doobie" can be seen in one frame. When JFK 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' "Stawberry Fields Forever"). 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

Joan of Arc
Oh, Mr. Butlertron, I wanted... I mean my friend wanted to show girls could do anything boys can. But in the process, she ended up hurting the one boy she loves most.
"Your friend" should listen to her heart. I'm not programmed to wink but if I were programmed to wink I would have winked when I said "your friend".
