4.0 out of 5 stars Finally! May 4, 2009
Season 1 of "Making Fiends" is on DVD, finally!

After being a faithful fan of the show, collecting the webshow DVDs, entering an art contest and even talking to Amy Winfrey, the creator, herself, I couldn't be happier that a TV show was being made!

18 episodes of sublime humor, good and unique coloring/animation, and hilarious voice acting are included on these 2 discs. It's labeled as "Season 1" here, and these are all the TV episodes created thus far.

An entire season 2 of 7 episodes has been written, and will be put into production if the show gets popular enough. As the #1 Nicktoons Network show, it's getting there! But we need to write to Nickelodeon and buy the merchandise in order to keep the show going!

Back to the DVD... 2 disc set, not bad at all. Good menus and packaging from what I see.

Two downsides, though:
#1- No bonus features. At least they could've included the 3-minute "Making Making Fiends" documentary that aired on Nickelodeon in 2007 and maybe the webseries.
#2- WAY too expensive. If it had a lot of bonus features, maybe the price would fit. But "The Fairly OddParents!: Season 1" has the same amount of episodes and is a lot cheaper.

Either way, I'll be picking this set up for sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars STRANGE, CREATIVE AND ENTERTAINING.... BUY IT May 20, 2010
Verified Purchase
Making Fiends is the story of two little girls, Vendetta and Charlotte, and the terrified people of the town of Clamburg. It is unclear exactly how old Vendetta and Charlotte are, though I would guess between 8 and 10 years of age. Vendetta has set herself up as the tyrant-mistress of Clamburg through her strange talent for creating "fiends"..., vicious monsters of various shapes and sizes whose sole purpose is to carry out Vendetta's will. To say that Vendetta is mean and nasty is an understatement. She is a cold blooded evil little girl who delights in the horror and suffering and demise of anyone who annoys her. She laughs and cheers at the notion of others being mutilated or devoured whole by her fiends. The only comparison I can think of , is the evil fairy godmother Maleficent from Disney's Sleeping Beauty. it's not clear if the "fiends" Vendetta makes are created via magic or science, or a little of both.., but she crafts them like a chef creating a dish from various ingredients.

Charlotte is a new adorable little girl in Clamburg who moved into a house with her Grandmother. Charlotte is not merely the exact opposite of Vendetta, Charlotte has a love and joy for life and for playing and making friends that goes over the top, capped off with a very simple and childish innocence that blinds her completely to any bad or evil intent from others. This makes her totally fearless of Vendetta and of Vendetta's "fiends". Charlotte meets Vendetta and tries to be friendly to her. Vendetta is outraged at her lack of fear and tries hard to force Charlotte into being like the other citizens of Clamburg who cower in fear of her and obey her every command. But Vendetta fails miserably.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirky, fun, and brilliant! May 15, 2010
Love, love, love this show! Both simple and sophisticated, Making Fiends is a scream. I love the characters, the catchy little songs, and the quirky humor (anyone for an onion treat?) I especially love that both heroine and villian are female characters.

The animation has a pleasing simplicity on the surface, which complements beautifully the varied use of background textures. Amy Winfrey ("Charlotte") and Aglaia Mortcheva ("Vendetta") are fabulous as the polar-opposite little girls, as are the other talented people who lend their voices to the show. Ego Plum's music is perfect at capturing both Charlotte's cheeriness and Vendetta's comical malevolence.

Yes, Making Fiends is a little dark in places, but not much more so than an episode of the original "Addams Family". Any real mayhem is mostly only hinted at, and never comes to pass. (The episodes invariably end up with a happy resolution for sunny Charlotte, and a frustrating failure for plotting Vendetta). One of the darkest episodes ends (spoiler ahead!) with teacher Mr. Milk giving up his own potential happiness to keep Charlotte safe.

It is probably best to check out Making Fiends first for yourself - as of this post it is still running on Nickelodeon on the weekends. It might not be appropriate for younger children, but older kids - and their parents - will definitey enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars What isn't to love about Making Fiends?! July 28, 2012
Verified Purchase
I'm 28 years old and consider this one of the best cartoons I've seen. The wife loves it as well. If you have a sick demented since of humor this video set is for you.

Note: This is still plenty safe for kids to enjoy as well. Adults will enjoy it more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strange Delights May 28, 2011
By Theo
This is one of those rare gems that crosses just about every age barrier you can think of, from toddlers to geriatrics.

"Making Fiends" exists in a world all of its own. The characters are drawn with strong, simple black lines, and are likewise colored in the simplest possible manner, with only one single hue being used per character. Backgrounds are only marginally less minimalist, but still somehow manage to suggest a delightfully gothic, even noir quality.

Within this strange world there are two principle characters. First, there's Vendetta, a young girl of pure malevolence. Vendetta possesses the power to "make fiends", which she is depicted as doing with a big pot, much stirring, and unidentified ingredients. The monsters so created allow Vendetta to terrorize everyone else in the series. Everyone, that is, except for Charlotte, her nemesis. Charlotte is Vendetta's exact opposite: a creature of pure innocence and Pollyannaish delight. The exact age of Vendetta and Charlotte is never specified, but they are class-mates in what appears to be elementary school.

Vendetta, naturally enough, finds Charlotte's relentless cheerfulness somewhat hard to take. "And" (in the words of the opening theme song) "so she plots her end".

Unfortunately for Vendetta, although Charlotte at all times remains entirely oblivious to Vendetta's evil intent, she somehow manages to thwart Vendetta's every move. Usually she does so either by winning the fiends over with her innate goodness, or alternatively, by horribly devastating them in her attempts to play with them. Indeed, just about every move on Vendetta's side is interpreted as "play" by Charlotte. And... that pretty much covers the plot of every single episode, or very nearly so.
