    What hatches in the first episode is a disappointing, weak strain of comic material, lacking the cunning, subversive quality of, say, "South Park." [10 Jan 2003]

The jokes are great. The show doesn't date itself with its comedy outside of a few celebrity cameos. The characters are lovable. The animation is surprisingly expressive. I wish this show got a proper conclusion but I can enjoy the brief run that it had. Always remember: when life gives you lemons, you clone those lemons and make super lemons. Full Review »

    I have been a fan of Phil Lord and Christopher Millers’ work since I saw 21 Jump Street. I loved all of their movies especially 22 Jump StreetI have been a fan of Phil Lord and Christopher Millers’ work since I saw 21 Jump Street. I loved all of their movies especially 22 Jump Street and The LEGO Movie. Seeing their first aired project just shows what kind of sense of humor they have and I love it. The show’s sense of humor is cartoonish and I love how it carries over to the other works Lord and Miller has done.

    The concept itself in which clones of past historic icons are now teenagers is such a clever idea that was executed well and seems what MTV would like to do during that time in 2002. It’s sad that not everyone is a big fan of this and that led to the cancellation of Clone High.

    Most of the clone characters are very likable, especially Gandhi and JFK with their similar personalities in different circle groups with Gandhi being the outcast yet party guy and JFK the typical “horny all-American quarterback jock”. They’re just funny to watch and to see them in the same scene makes them even more funnier.

    The love triangle between the clones Abraham “Abe” Lincoln, Joan of Arc and Cleopatra is nothing new or special but I liked how this helps the show to move forward and its nature of the show makes it more entertaining to watch.

    Clone High is one of the few shows that I want to watch again from the very beginning all because it was hilarious. This is one underrated TV show.

    Clone High U.S.A has a odd, but clever concept of teenage clones replicating famous figures like Abe Lincoln and Joan of Arc in a high schoolClone High U.S.A has a odd, but clever concept of teenage clones replicating famous figures like Abe Lincoln and Joan of Arc in a high school run by a psychotic scientist principal and his butler robot. In results, this animated sitcom is highly hilarious with a unique cast of characters and jokes that will literally laugh your a** off. The show would have received a perfect 10, but unfortunately the last episode ended with an open ending that lead a lot of viewers peeved before the show got cancelled. If you are open-minded to give strange animated sitcoms a try, then Clone High U.S.A. is your type of DNA to test out. Full Review »
