Clone High

If you haven't seen the new MTV series Clone High, check it out, it's a real "smart" show (will be cancelled within 2 years). Tonight's episode (number 4) had Joan of Arc expressing her love for Abe Lincoln via a very avant garde faux French film that featured Genghis Khan issuing a primal scream wearing a "Screw Tibet" T-Shirt. The episode also began with a riot prompted by a victory by the cross-country team (lead by J.F.K.)-where Aristotle broke into the library and stole all the books. Finally, I can't leave out the fact that Gandhi & George Washington Carver made a buddy secret agent film that shattered the stereotypes of blacks and Indians and showed that the two ethnic groups could get along-it was titled "Black & Tan." What's not to like? Plus, Cleo is hot:




(Yes, I know the real Cleo was a half-Macedonian half-Pontic dog....)

The cast of historic characters seems to be drawn almost wholly from "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure."

So when does MTV show Clone High?

dan, monday @ 1030, though they rerun it frequently.

"R"-she might have had a *egyptian* great-grandmother or something, but that's the closest i have heard. she was half ptolemaic-therefore, macedonian, but her mother was the daughter of the pontic potentate mithradates, who was of thracian extraction i believe, and very aryan looking from what i recall.

This show is the second best cartoon ever created (1. The Simpsons). It's hilarious and addicting. This show will be on for a long time.

It's a Cartoon people. The characters are either based on stereotypes or just plain silly. Bottom line is this show is wickedly funny and I love it.

clone high is one of the best cartoons out this year but mtv always does away with cartoons after one season. lets hope clone high won't turn out like the other great cartoon "undergrads".
