Well Written, Simple, Fantastic
4 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's no argument, that they don't make cartoons like they used to. And no, Making Fiends is not like the "good old days", but that's just it. The charm in Making Fiends is that it embraces everything good about modern cartoons, and that has a look & feel, humor, and wit that is all it's own.

The show takes place in Clamburg, a town taken over by a green girl named Vendetta who can make fiends: monsters who keep the town of Clamburg in fear. When an endlessly cheerful blue girl comes to town, chaos ensues. Vendetta wants to destroy her with fiends, but Charlotte just wants to play. Yippee!

The first great noteworthy thing is that it is well written. No matter how beautiful the character design and humorous the actors (both of which, by the way, are present in this cartoon), nothing beats good writing. No wasted lines, no tasteless jokes. Nothing is ever trying too hard to be funny. Ever. And while the show will never be deep and emotional (in any obvious way, at least), it still finds its niche as a very unique comedy.

From its humble beginnings as a small web cartoon by Amy Winfrey (makingfiends.com), this show has really transformed. It still keeps its original charm with its clever songs and characters, and the same voice actors and core crew from the original cartoons. Each of the characters are fantastic: the happy-go-lucky Charlotte, the cynical Vendetta, the timid Mr. Milk, and more. All of the elements of a good show are present here. Not every single episode is perfect, and the show is not always a 100 percent sure shot, but boy, is it close. If it continues, it can only get better.

All I can ask is that Nickelodeon doesn't decide to pull the plug on the show, and if they're feeling ambitious, they can even promote it more. We will never see a show like this again, and good cartoons have become far and few between. So get off your bums and spread the word: good and new CAN co-exist in a cartoon—even if such spectacles only appear every once in a little blue girl.
