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