The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy is an American animated television series created by Maxwell Atoms for Cartoon Network. The series originally premiered as segments of Grim & Evil on August 24, 2001. The segments were spun-out into their own series on June 13, 2003 (although the 2003-2004 episodes were also produced originally for Grim & Evil), and continued to air until November 9, 2007. A spin-off film, titled Underfist: Halloween Bash, aired on October 12, 2008.
A total of 78 half-hour episodes were produced, including one hour-long Holiday special and four feature-length TV films, bringing the total number of episodes to 86, in the form of 160 segments. The episode "Billy and Mandy Moon the Moon" was part of Cartoon Network's "Invaded" event, which included other shows such Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Ed, Edd n Eddy, My Gym Partner's a Monkey, and Camp Lazlo, with Billy & Mandy being the last to air.
After Grim's robe comes out of the washing machine, Billy and Mandy find Thromnambular, a talking skull with ruby eyes and a number nine imprinted on his forehead. Grim tells them that the skull is a magical artifact imprisoned on Earth that must grant his nine wishes to be free. When Mandy asks Grim why he has not used any of the wishes, Grim tells her that the skull will corrupt the wishes and end up affecting the wisher. Despite this, Billy runs away with the skull and makes the first wish: (1) he wishes to be in an adventure (which parodies Indiana Jones and Jonny Quest), this backfires because Irwin is eaten, which Billy complains about getting him in trouble. After this, Thromnambular is found by different people who each make a wish: (2) Billy's dad wishes he could relive his high school years, but this backfires because he is not popular; (3) General Skarr wishes to rule on high, but this backfires because he asphyxiates in space; (4) Irwin (despite being eaten already in an earlier episode) wishes he was in a hip-hop music video, but backfires because he gets punched by Mandy; (5) Pud'n wishes he had a bunny, but backfires because he is almost killed by it, because "Sometimes Love Hurts"; (6) Nergal Junior wastes his wish by wishing for a wish that wouldn't backfire; (7) Sperg wishes for a way to get into the girls restroom to bully a girl into giving him a large sack of money, this backfires because he is turned into girl and insulted by the other girls for being ugly; (8) Mindy wishes to be a "big star", but this backfires when she is sent into space strapped to a rocket; (9) finally, Mandy tries to auction the last wish, but Grim gets ahead and wishes the kids never found the skull in the first place. This goes back to the beginning of the episode where Billy is staring at the washing machine, followed by Mandy pushing him into it.
As Billy, Mandy, Grim, and Irwin hang from a rope about to be eaten by a giant sea serpent, Irwin wonders how they came into that trouble. Billy and Grim each tell separate stories on how they originally became best friends forever and ever. Billy's fantastic story is about him and Mandy being space patrol officers who collect the Grim Reaper's bones, cloak, and skull to summon him; Grim tells a story on how the evil Mandy and her pet servant, Billy, managed to capture him inside a containment unit (parodying the Ghostbusters' ghost traps). Mandy quickly tells the real story, and footage from the first episode is seen, before the four are swallowed whole by the serpent.
These shorts were parts of a mini-series called Billy's Birthday Shorties, which mostly starred Billy. The shorts revolved around Billy's birthday and aired on "The Grim and Courage Hour", an hour-long block of episodes from The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy and Courage the Cowardly Dog. It aired for four days in October 2006 on Cartoon Network.
This is a list of episodes of the American animated television series The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy (shortened to just Billy & Mandy), which was created by Maxwell Atoms, and which originally aired on Cartoon Network from June 13, 2003 to October 12, 2008.
There were 78 regular half-hour 11-minute episodes, each of which consisted of two, or even three, shorter seven-minute segments. Only a small number of episodes consisted of a single segment. Some sites display the show as having seven episodes as opposed to six.
The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy became a standalone show, separate from Evil Con Carne, although the ninth episode, a sketch of Malo Con Carne is tied with other two episodes of Billy and Mandy. However, the 2003 episodes were also made for Grim & Evil, but only aired when the two shows were separate from each other in the United States. These episodes were not seen in the original format until 2018, when the full series was released on demand.
This season also included the bonus 14-minute episode "Five-O-Clock Shadows", which was the only season 1 episode to be released in 2004, and not made for Grim & Evil. It was first aired on October 22, 2004, airing alongside Evil Con Carne's Ultimate Evil. It was later aired in reruns in the same half-hour as "Terror of the Black Knight"
This season has 11 regular episodes. Midway through the season, the 21-minute special episode "Billy & Mandy Moon the Moon" was showed, and the television-made movies Billy & Mandy's Big Boogey Adventure and Billy & Mandy: Wrath of the Spider Queen aired.
Cartoon Network Invaded was a special crossover event that aired on Cartoon Network in the United States from May 4th, 2007 through May 28th, 2007 (which was Memorial Day of 2007). This was a special event about a continuing storyline of an alien invasion which ran through five different episodes that were special episodes of five CN Original Series: Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Ed, Edd n Eddy, My Gym Partner's a Monkey, Camp Lazlo, and The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy.
According to Maxwell Atoms, creator of Billy and Mandy, the event occurred because Kraft Cheese sponsored it, hence the connections between cheese and the aliens on each show's episode. However the company backed out at the last minute so the episodes were shown as a special event on the network. Craig McCracken, creator of Foster's Home, stated that nobody on board was excited. Three aliens were created during advertisements, including Sklrrvss (red alien; voiced by Ben Amick), Peaches (green alien; voiced by Tom Kenny), and Glog (blue alien; voiced by Jason DeMarco).
During this episode of Foster's, Frankie is first at a post office getting a package ready and in middle of a phone call with this grandma she has when she comes across Cheese and ignores him. Later as she is leaving this post office, she realizes that Cheese is running around streets yelling "Gotta Go!" repetitively so she lets him into the Foster's bus. They pick up both Mac and Bloo at the local movie theater where they were watching a science fiction film about an alien invasion called "Brain Sucking Aliens From The Moon". They also pick up both Eduardo and Coco from a dentist clinic, and Eduardo becomes loopy from anesthetics causing him to suddenly and ironically warn Bloo that he's hiding from these aardvarks like in this movie him and Mac were watching. And because this comes out of Eduardo, and Bloo reads a tabloid newspaper in the clinic's waiting room which has an article about an alien invasion with a picture of an alien that resembles Cheese, he suddenly feels as if Cheese is one of those alien race spy hitmen about to cause an alien invasion. And soon they're back in the Foster's Home bus en route to the courthouse as Wilt is defending Madame Foster, and in the bus, Bloo shows Mac that tabloid newspaper he got from the clinic they were at and warns him that because this alien invader is this article's picture is really similar to Cheese, he believes that Cheese is one the alien invaders and from how Eduardo is, has removed his brain. But Mac won't believe Bloo about this. And when they arrive at this destination, which is this town's courthouse, Frankie insists both Mac and Coco exit this bus because the two of them are both witnesses to this court case and Frankie goes with them inside. She also insists and warns Bloo to stay on this bus with Cheese and Eduardo, do not exit, and wait until the three of them get back. And as Bloo's waiting for them, he uses this bus's 2-way radio to contact the galaxy, though this barely works.
Electricity in town is not working including vehicles! So everyone has to walk to destinations. On the way, Windsor shows a magazine about recent alien invasion events. And this magazine has a story about removal of the Cul-de-Sac made front page news and shows the Eds (marking it one of the only time the Eds have appeared on another show - the other being the KND/Billy & Mandy crossover episode). Meanwhile, a new student arrives at Charles Darwin Middle School named Rick. Rick tries to trick everyone into thinking he's an alien by mentioning Brain Juice. It seems to work but not for Adam, who believes Richard is just a normal platypus. In the end, Richard reveals that the brain juice he kept talking about was just a normal juice drink.
Just as we've mostly recovered from the devastating beauty that was Part One: Rue, Euphoria starts it's special episode Part Two: Jules playing Lorde's fragile ballad "Liability" as we see a highlight reel of the girls' relationship play out inside actress Hunter Schafer's blue eyes.
The episode pulls Jules into what we know from part one to be Rue's dream of their NYC apartment, but Rue's dream is Jules' nightmare. Jules can't help but imagine coming home to Rue overdosing.
A week later, around the time of the Halloween episode, where Jules is in her iconic Romeo+Juliet costume with the angel wings, she overhears that her mother went missing for a week and ended up in the hospital inebriated. Going back to the fantasy apartment, Jules hears her dad bang on the door until she finally agrees to come home. Walking from the bathroom to the door, she steps over Rue's comatose body. 59ce067264
