Storyline

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 Anonymous

Joan of Arc: [Referring to Cleo's bra] Why don't you just take the tissues out and it'll fall off?
Cleopatra: [Gasps] You signed a nondisclosure agreement! I hope you have good lawyers, because I'm gonna sue your hand-me-down pants off, creature trash!
Abe: Girls, girls, girls! You're both human beings. You both put your bras on one-leg-at-a-time.

Brilliant? It very well could have been...
30 August 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Back in 2003, when they began to rerun this show on late night "Teletoon", i watched the show whenever i could, i was in total love with the humor and the characters represented. It was one of those shows/films that perfectly represents you're humor, and that's why i loved it. But, it became increasingly hard to watch it, for it was always ran on the weekends when i would leave with no time to catch another episode. And then as the years went by, i guess i kind of gave up trying to watch it, and moved onto other things. But, this summer as i traveled through Vancouver, i decided to stop into the downtown A&B, and pick up some music. While there i browsed briefly through the DVD section, and the name "Clone High" screamed out at me from the shelf. I picked up the case knowing that there was only one season and curious to see if there was anything else too it. I bought it for the memories, and for the many episodes out of the 13 i had not seen. And as i watch it now, as my 16 year old self, i can honestly say that it may be one of my all-time favorite TV shows next to "The Simpsons" (Era - Seasons 3-9).

Every part of the show is enjoyable. First and foremost, it is gutbustingly hilarious. I have read that Gandhi's clone character has caused much controversy around the globe, and while i can see how that would arise, he is the funniest character out of all them (next to Scangrade, and Toots of course). The other thing this show did so well was parody the common cliché of teenage sex romps, while not veering off into the immature and plain stupidity that many animated shows have amounted too, at the same time, it didn't take itself too seriously which left it free for loads of great satire.

The other thing i can say about this show is it is genuingly touching. While, this may be ironic, for the show's purpose is to parody that "touchy feely" aspect of teenage cinema, and all the parts i found sweet may just be jokes onto themselves. For example, as i watched the season (or series, hopefully not) finale, and grew closer to the end, i knew this was it, there was nothing after this, and i was just crushed. Everything about the ending depressed me, the music by the Abandoned Pools, the character's quick conclusions, even the "To be continued...?!" at the end. I went to bed that night with a heavy sadness (as corny as it sounds, it's true). But then the next day, i realized that in a way, regardless of my disappointment, it was an almost perfect way to end that show, at the time. If it comes back, you've got a great ciffhanger that will draw people in, if it doesn't, it can be interpreted as a further satire of weepy teen romances. That comforted me a little. But just a little.

All in all, this show was a wonderful, and unappreciated show that i would be very happy to see back on the air. I have heard rumors about a mythical 14th episode to end it all in the works. But, i've learned to not trust all the gossip i hear on the internet.

Heavily recommended!
