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. Every attempt to frighten and coerce Charlotte ends up with Charlotte misunderstanding Vendetta's intent..., thinking that Vendetta is merely trying to play with her.
This resistance by Charlotte infuriates Vendetta who sics various types of vicious frightening fiends against her in the hope of either driving Charlotte away, or actually ending her existence..., neither of which happens. The fiends that Vendetta sends to attack Charlotte do not ..., because Charlotte is so charming and loving and friendly that the fiends themselves are won-over by her exuberant personality..., and she often ends up making pets of the fiends.
This is a very clever animated series that has a creative hand-drawn style of animation with simple but stark colors that produces an overall "storybook" effect which is very appealing to watch. The humor comes from the clash of personalities between Vendetta and Charlotte , usually with Vendetta getting the worst of it. This series is as fun for adults as it is for kids, and this is what tends to make an animated series rise above and beyond others. There is a message..., a lesson that can be learned from Making Fiends..., and perhaps it is that the biggest hearts win in the end, or, perhaps that "evil" only holds influence over those who allow it to.
This set comes with two DVDs's in a single case. The video and audio were perfect. I highly recommend this set to everyone of all ages.

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!
It may not be appropriate for all children that age, and certainly not for younger kids. But We LOVE IT!! My daughter and I quote Charlotte & Vendetta to each other:)
Hoping for a Season 2.
Note: This is still plenty safe for kids to enjoy as well. Adults will enjoy it more.
