    No way. I thought it was funny, but the thing that did it in was that it attempted to be like Wonder Years. When a show like that comes on it's automatically going to be compared to Wonder Years, only this was a comedy and "WY" was more of a serious, heartfelt show.

    Clone High, in my opinion, one of the funniest shows i've ever seen. I need it on DVD dammit.

    Firefly, **** you Fox. **** you.

    I agree with that SOB. Oliver Beene was pretty much trying to be Wonder Years with today's overused "dysfunctional family trash" formula. So, you know, it was Married With Children in the 60s.

    Yeah, it was trying way too hard.

    Whats with all the Clone High lovers...I hated that show and it replaced a much greater show 3 South...did anyone even see 3 South...one of the funniest things i have ever seen was on that show...the scene starts with 3 guys sitting at a table laughing and one of the guys say " and thats how my mom died ".....now thats comedy

    Conversely, I couldn't stand 3 South, but I thought Clone High was hilarious. Mohondas Ghandi alone carried that show.

    UnderGrads was a much better college comedy than 3 South. The art and animation was better, and it appealed to my overall geeky sense of humor.

    Does anyone remember Spy Groove? MTV hasn't been able to keep a good cartoon on the air since Daria, it seems.

    Speaking as someone who likes both Japanese anime and American cartoons, I just want to say...

    MEGAS was taken before its time, and Zatch Bell is a piece of crap.

    I hate most american cartoons these days...they all seem to like to use computer animation too much...now if you bring back some classic hand drawn animation from the 80's then i will agree.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again.

    Keen Eddie.

    That show was great. Action, drama, and whole lot of comedy.
