Grim & Evil


Grim & Evil

"Grim & Evil" was an American animated television series created by Maxwell Atoms. The series, which aired on Cartoon Network, consisted of two segments which were eventually spun off into their own shows, "The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy" and "Evil Con Carne".

History

The show's existence is largely the result of a viewer poll. An Internet and call-in event called the "Big Pick" was held from August 24 to August 25 in 2000. The three final choices were "Grim and Evil", "Whatever Happened to Robot Jones?", and "Longhair and Doubledome". Out of the three, "Grim and Evil" won. The first season appeared on Cartoon Network in 2001. "Robot Jones" would later be made into a full series despite losing; "Longhair and Doubledome" would reappear with another pilot episode in another "Big Pick"-style show later on, only to fall short once again.

In 2003, the network separated "Grim" and "Evil", effectively giving both a full length show. The short-lived "Evil Con Carne" show was cancelled once all the already-made episodes were aired. In 2004, "Evil Con Carne" was given another short-lived run with the newly created intro and end credits, only to be canceled again. "Grim and Evil", in its original form, has not been seen on TV since 2003 (although the theme song has been seen on "The Cartoon Cartoon Show"). Some characters from "Evil Con Carne", usually Skarr, occasionally appear on "The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy".

Segments

Billy & Mandy

"Billy & Mandy" is show about two neighborhood kids who force the Grim Reaper to be their best friend forever after defeating the Messenger of Death in a game of Limbo. This was the main segment, as two "Billy & Mandy" episodes were wrapped around an episode of "Evil Con Carne".

Evil Con Carne

"Evil Con Carne" was a show about an evil genius obsessed with taking over the world, whose disembodied brain was transplanted onto the head of a moronic circus bear. This was usually the backup to "Grim Adventures" as "Evil Con Carne" was put between two "Billy & Mandy" cartoons. On occasion, the format was reversed, with a two-part "Evil Con Carne" cartoon sandwiching one "Billy & Mandy" cartoon.
