Clone High

By Ben Wynd

Clone High was a one season cartoon that aired on Teletoon and MTV from 2002 to 2003. The show revolves around a high school in the town of Exclamation, USA. The school is actually run as a military experiment by a government office called the Secret Board of Shadowy Figures. The student body is composed of clones of famous historical figures that have been created with the intent of having their various strengths utilized by the US military. The concept sounds serious but the show is 100% adult comedy. When Clone High first aired, it was met with mixed reviews, but almost 20 years later that’s greatly changed. The show has gained a cult following, especially within the last three months. The amazing character dynamics written between high school versions of JFK, Abraham Lincoln, Cleopatra, and Joan of Arc make the show still hold up, even for a new audience. With the growing popularity, a reboot has entered a planning stage at MTV. The entire show is free to watch on YouTube so if you have the time I would highly recommend watching it!
