    What sets "Clone High" above other superficially similar shows is that it knows it is ripping off its television forebears — both animated and live action — and it knows that you know too. Every storyline has been done to death, so "Clone High" appropriates these well-worn, over-done topics with a wink and a nod and then proceeds to mercilessly shred them. The end result is subversive, not formulaic.

    An animated series with an odd mix of historical figures and parodies of teen-appeal TV, advertising and music. It's a bizarre combination, to be sure, but it works. [12 Jan 2003, p.D-3]

    In a year of variations and ripoffs of established themes and genres, it's a true original. It's also a cartoon, and is truly, outrageously bizarre. [20 Jan 2003, p.85]

    The characters are intriguing in a lightweight way but could lose their appeal fast. Remember when Austin Powers was a brilliant comedy creation, the thawed-out 90's secret agent who still operated by 60's social standards? The joke just wasn't good enough to hold up three (and probably more) films, although that hasn't hurt the films at the box office. The clones, like Austin, may turn out to be a one-joke invention.

    Sounds funny, and it is. In a style reminiscent of "South Park" and "Beavis and Butt-head," but not nearly as crude, Clone High mixes pop culture and historical references with some crassness. The problem is that the first episode, which focuses on crushes and beer, doesn't quite live up to the obvious comedic potential behind the killer premise. [20 Jan 2003, p.C24]

    Screwloose, occasionally amusing...Yeah, Beavis and Butt-head would make fun of this show. Heh-heh-heh. [20 Jan 2003]

    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]

    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 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. Collapse
