I don't understand the point of the youtube series if the franchise is basically dead?
are we sure its dead?
I mean im 99.99% convinced EAH has gone the way of the dodo till someone proves me wrong .. but are we SURE monster high is gone?

They're still maintaining their social media sites, and announced some new dolls for 2018, so no, not dead... just resting.

I just hope Mattel are smart enough to capitalise on the series and release some new dolls of the returning characters in their new outfits.

Also I like how Torelai (& the guys, at least Gil, right, I don't remember) is the only one in her original outfit. A doll they'd probably not rerelease keeps her outfit.

Also I don't quite like the new voices for either Torelai or Operetta.

I do hope this will help increase interest in the dolls again because the webseries seems to be doing decently so far.

Phantom of the Cavern? For real?
Ok, the acoustics are important for her, but a cavern full of diamonds... Ok, I give up. I need to understand and accept that logic stopped driving at least a year ago

I do like that some times, some ghouls are out of action.

So is she not the Phantom of the Opera's daughter anymore? Or do they think that a cavern full of diamonds makes sense?
Cause if it's acoustic's she's looking for.. The cavern is going to be super echoy and awful for acoustics.

They could have made her the "Phantom of the Abandoned Movie Theater". At least it would make more sense both origin and acoustic wise.

Also, not a huge fan of her voice.. Toralei's isn't awful, but Opy's is not the best. Hard to pin point why.

I guess Toralei can't turn into a cat? Was waiting for it when Clawdeen turned into a wolf and Lala into the bat.

But like Morieris said, I am glad that not all of the main ghouls are there on a mission all the time.

Through some ninja-level freeze framing, I found that Toralei's gotten a new voice (that is, not America Young) in Paloma Rodriguez--a bilingual voice actress (ENG/ESP) who describes her range as "very young to mid-30s". Sparse IMDB page, but this profile says she's been doing VO for 4 years--newer than a lot of VAs who've been with the series. She also played Maya in Killer Instinct (yeah, I also went "Who in what?", she's a lady in a decent fighting game) for the PS4.

Cindy Robinson is still on as Operetta, though--maybe she's doing a new thing like Derryberry is.

If anyone would like it as proof, here's a snip of the VA roster for this episode:

The spanish from Spain version LAS AVENTURAS DE LAS MONSTRUO-AMIGAS has so many flaws!!!
When they realize there's diamonds everywhere, the rendering is not done and there's none.
Around Venus' mouth you see white parts, and at the end Operetta directly has no mouth.
In the Abbey episode, when she was throwing ice to the volcano, we could even see some rendering text message on the screen!
This is getting ridicolous. How dare they upload episodes that way???

Looks like we're getting Rochelle this week! I think her new voice is okay, but her new outfit is so lovely.

That's impressively unimpressive so far on a character and voice standpoint but we shall see!

"Et tu?"? Rochelle can't even speak French properly? Or maybe she's going for Latin?  :P

I really liked this episode. Cleo being Spider-Man, Abbey being delightfully blunt as usual, and I really liked Cassandra Morris' take on Rochelle's voice. I actually think its better than Erin Fitzferald's Rochelle voice.

Cute episode, although I'm kinda disliking the "let's find guys who we can use" instead of "Let's help people who need our help" like they did with Gil.

Aww, Operetta's new look is so cute! I was afraid they might screw her up somehow (Operetta was my first MH doll so she has a special place in my heart <3 ) but I really like that design! Maybe we'll get an (articulated!) doll of her? *crosses fingers*
