Reviews

From the official site: 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? We are.

This is one of the funniest series ever created!
It may seem stupid, but hey, it is!
It may have gone to far on some things, like Ghandi being stupid, but I dont care, cause I find it funny.
Its a shame that theres only one season of it, 2-3 extra seasons would have been nice.
The ending of the season/show is kinda weird, and you know that the people behind it, was planning to make a second season, but never came that far.
I cant recommend this enough to people who are looking for something diffrent, and dont let the high price scare you away, cause its worth every money you pay!

Clone High is an amazing series, it's a crime there is only one season. It was created by the people behind Scrubs, so that gives you an idea of the humour.
It's about a High School where the students are clones of famous historical figures who have been created by shadowy government figures intent on world domination.
The main characters are Abe Lincoln, Joan of Arc, JFK, Cleopatra and Ghandi, but there are hundreds of other historical characters, usually voiced by one of the Scrubs cast. There are great guests like Marilyn Manson, Tom Green and Jack Black. I cant recommend this show enough.

A Wonderful Parody of the Teen Drama Genre and a Great Show 9 Feb. 2006
By Andrew - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Clone High has a very original concept; back in the 1980s, secret government agents dug up some of the most famous and influential historical figures and cloned them. The clones were put in the care of foster homes, and are being secretly monitered by the government. By now, they are in high school, and are attending Clone High High School, where Principal Cinnamon J. Scudworth (Phil Lord) can keep his eye on them. Scudworth is employed by the Board of Shadowy Figures, the government group responsible for the clones, but he secretly plans to steal the clones away from the government for his own purposes. Scudworth is a stereotypical mad scientist; he is completely insane, speaks in an overly dramatic manner, and even built a robotic butler named Mr. Butlertron (Chris Miller).

The main clones are Abe Lincoln (Will Forte), a nice guy who is very indecisive, Joan of Arc (Nicole Sullivan), a goth girl with a crush on Abe, Ghandi (Michael McDonald), Abe's best friend and party animal (he buckled under the pressure of living up to the original Ghandi), Cleopatra (Christa Miller), a sexy, self-absorbed rich girl, and JFK (Chris Miller), a loud, obnoxious, partier who is Lincoln's rival for Cleopatra's heart. Some other clones include George Washington Carver (Donald Faison), a science nerd obsessed with peanuts, Thomas Edison, an AV nerd, Ponce de Leon (Luke Perry), a Fonzie-esque guy who likes to litter, Vincent van Gogh (Andy Dick), a depressed art student (if you've seen Wedding Crashers, think Todd), and Buddy Holly (Neil Flynn), an aviator with an unsafe plane. In addition to the numerous clones, there are many original characters such as Toots (Donald Faison), Joan of Arc's blind foster parent, Wally and Carl (Faison, Flynn), JFK's gay foster dads, Abe's Foster Dad (Joe Flarhety), who is kind of a knock on Flarhety's character in Freaks and Geeks, Mr. Sheepman (Andy Dick), a history teacher and the first mostly human clone, and Glenn the Janitor (Flynn), who is Ponce's foster dad and a direct parody of Flynn's Janitor character on Scrubs (Glenn is the exact opposite of the Janitor on Scrubs, but Scudworth still hates him).

The episodes wonderfully poke fun of the teenage drama genre. The episodes all deal with bizarre "issues", such as smoking raisins to get high, corporate sponsorship, the ADD epidemic, religious tolerance, incarceration, and the death of a friend. In fact, every episode begins with "Tonight, on a very special Clone High", and every episode has a "Previously" segment and a "On the next..." segment, neither of which are necessary, because the show isn't (for the most part) serialized. Futhermore, the relationship structure is similar to that of most popular teen dramas; the male protagonist (Abe) likes the sexy girl (Cleo) who is dating a jerk (JFK), while his best female friend (Joan) pines for him. Meanwhile, Abe's best male friend (Ghandi), is always trying to score with the girls, though he usually ends in failure. The animation is somewhat crude, though I think that it is (1) part of the show's charm, and (2) another way to poke fun at generic teen shows. I think that the cheap animation is supposed to make us think that this was a kind of quick imitation.

A lot of the humor on the show derives from the fact that so many of the clones are nothing like the originals. Abe is indecisive, JFK is not a good leader, Ghandi is a party animal, Ghengis Khan is mentally challenged, and Nostradamus is a terrible psychic. Of course, there are numerous other kinds of jokes, ranging from current events references (such as the extreme marketing), great guest stars (including Marilyn Manson, Jack Black, John Stamos, and Mandy Moore), and parodies of classic cartoons, such as when Scudworth engaged in a Roadrunner/Wile E. Coyote scenario with a skunk. Also, a lot of the humor is similar to that found on the show Scrubs, which makes sense because Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence is one of the creators of Clone High. And with the exception of Judy Reyes and Ken Jenkins, all of the Scrubs regulars did voices in this show. Also, a lot of guest stars on Scrubs also appeared in this show, sometimes as regulars (Nicole Sullivan, who does the voice of Joan of Arc, had a somewhat recurring role on Scrubs).

Sadly, Clone High was cancelled after only one season. There was so much more they could have done, and so much humor to be had with yet-to-be introduced clones. It's sad that we'll never get to see the exploits of Abe and Ghadi or hear Mr. Butlertron call anyone Wesley again, but oh well. The show ended in a "cliff-hanger" which further parodied the teen drama. It's actually a pretty fitting ending for the type of show that Clone High is. Who knows, maybe someday we'll get a movie, similar to Firefly, but for now, enjoy these 13 episodes.

MTV ran this show for a while, but for whatever reason, stopped playing it altogether. This show should've never been pulled from their lineup. It's one of my top 5 animated series' of all time!

Excellent product, I wonder if it will have an official U.S. release? 10 April 2006
By Big B - Published on Amazon.com

I've waited for three years for this show to be released on DVD. In that time I've had to make do with the complete series downloaded on my computer. But now that I have this set, I couldn't be happier.

You may have read how annoying some reviewers find the the 90-second Teletoon commercial introduction to be. Personally, I don't mind it since it shows scenes from some of my favorite cartoons - Family Guy, Futurama, etc. Nonetheless, you can't skip past it (at least on my Sony DVD players) - but it's not that bad.

What blew me away was the incredible transfer quality. I could not believe how sharp and colorful the show looked. Excellent job with the print, as the image quality looked just like that found on the Simpsons, South Park, Futurama, Family Guy volumes. In addition, I could not believe how great the audio sounded. Absolutely no noise.

Regarding the audio, I was so pleased to see that all of the songs that originally aired are on this set. Clone High has such an incredible selection of songs that I was pleased to see that they were retained. Dashboard Confessional, The Get Up Kids, Saves the Day, Taking Back Sunday, Hot Rod Circuit, The Anniversary, Alkaline Trio - this show is an emo-lovers dream! Also, it's worth addressing the longer intro song. Having read about this change, I was prepared to hear it at the beginning of each episode - but I didn't realize how much I'd miss the piano version on Episode 10. Clone High has such a great theme song, and I missed this variation. However, a quick search on the internet will show that numerous sites have an mp3 of this song.

Overall, this was an excellent packaging. I did miss not having any liner notes or some sort of insert in the DVD case - just think how great it would have been to include a retrospective, sketches, etc. Oh well. I don't think anything short of a second season will ever satisfy Clone High fans - but I think this release is pretty great.

Clone High, You Broke My Heart 15 Feb. 2006
By Jason H. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Clone High, without a question, stands with The Simpsons (and I am talking the 'prime years' of The Simpsons-Seasons 4,5,6) as one of the best animated shows of all-time. The show has some of the greatest characters ever and when they are paired with clever and original writing, you got a winner. Of course, MTV couldn't see this because it didn't have an Osbourne or a Ashlee Simpson involved. Anyway, anyone that can buy this DVD, do so. It will not disappoint. Maybe we can pull a Family Guy and get it back on the air. Great show.

Great show! 6 May 2009
By Otto Correct - Published on Amazon.com

Possibly the most quotable show in history (and about history).

I came into Clone High a little late, I remember seeing the show on MTV at the time it was on (the no sleep episode), but didn't really watch it all till about 6 months ago, when I discovered most of the 13 episodes could be seen on youtube for free.

That said, after seeing 3 episodes on youtube, I immediately bought the DVD. This is an awesome show, its wacky, immediately funny, and subversive all at the same time. It literally has something for everyone. There's immediate, stupid humor, historical humor, stuff thats much more subversive, parodies of everything from teen dramas to looney tunes to Benny Hill to Christmas specials and beyond.

Its a shame that this show was shut down because it apparently offended Indians due to its portrayal of Ghandi. I can understand why Indians wouldn't like the Ghandi character, but seriously, they make a point several times of saying that its a CLONE of Ghandi. Oh well, pick a less iconic historical figure next time, I guess (though no one complained about "Hesus Christo").

But the writing, seriously. SO good. These guys knew how to take a joke to its breaking point. They would run things about two beats further than they should, and it would end up super funny. Family Guy could learn a few things from this show.

That said, I'm actually not sure how they would've worked a 2nd season. Over the course of 13 episodes, they had slowly driven the episodes so over the top (example: compare the amount of bloodshed on the first disc to the second disc) that by the end of everything I don't really know where they could've taken it. Any further and it would've been WAY TOO FAR over the top (a line they already were skipping across by the end of everything) or they would've repeated themselves. Either way, great show, but it had its own self-imposed limits. I suppose the cancellation makes it sort of a mini-series. And thats fine, I guess. It works perfect that way.

Still, great parody of teen dramas, and great writing. Not only was I laughing my butt off, but by the end of everything I actually found myself caring whether or not Joan and Abe would get together. Pretty impressive that a parody show would still make its characters emotionally resonant.

If you can get it for a decent price you totally should. If not, well, there's always youtube.

POST SCRIPT EDIT: If you're a fan of Clone High and you haven't already done so, please go watch Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs. It was written and directed by the creators of Clone High. Its obviously a bit more family friendly than Clone High is, but it has the same sense of humor, the same ability to stretch jokes to hilarious proportions, and the same sharp eye for witty satire (this time taking on action-disaster movies). It features none of the cliches of most kids movies (no songs, no big stupid message at the end), and really plays as more of a straight comedy than a kids flick. Plus it was WRITTEN and DIRECTED by Mr. B and Scudworth, how awesome is that? Trust me, if you liked Clone High you'll like Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs.
