What if that bg ghoul is *actually* Ghoulia?!

That name suits *her* more than it does G1 Ghoulia I think. I'd love a speaking Ghoulia who just moaned an awful lot. Like a Daria vibe reluctant to be friends with anyone and super smart.

The idea to have a feral Angelic is brilliant! What a missed opportunity! It'd be funny if she was trying to bite people all the time. Draculaura was/is a vegan right, and that's why she doesn't bite people. Introducing Fangelica to vegan food & dealing with her cravings could have been fun.

Imagine her tryin to feed on students; zombies are yuck, lol. Abbey walks up to Draculaura with  "bone to poke, er pick," & turns around to reveal Fangelica hanging limp from her back, fangs frozen. They get Heath to free her & Fangelica tries to sink her fangs into *him* and her face thermometers up all red before Lagoona douses her with water. Clawdeen laughs at a soaked and sullen Fangelica, "shake it off' [shakes like a dog]" we all had trouble fitting in; you'll get the hang of it." Abbey's brow shoot up and she rubs the spot on her back Fangelica hung from and everyone laughs.

I don't like the animation.  I'm also confused about Draculaura's outfit.  That's her first day of school outfit and sometimes you see her wearing leggings and sometimes not I wish they would keep one thing and stick with it.

I'm still not fond of the designs for the animation nor the fact that they threw out all G1 canon history and backgrounds, but that said, the story is interesting.
I also like that it's 11 minutes so there's more time to develop an arc as oppose to cramping a set up, rising action and climax/resolution in just 3 minutes (gotta admire their creativity).
Hope to see more soon.

The crossword that requires watching the series to find the answers can be found here: http://play.monsterhigh.com/Static/apps/downloads/MH_Scavenger_Hunt_PuzzleSheet_v1.pdf

Excitingly, the clues reveal that Abbey, Toralei, Venus, and a new character named Thorna are set to appear. I wonder if they'll have their original voices...

So I've looked at a bit of the animation...I didn't think there'd be anything I disliked more than the G1 3D animation, and then this comes along...It doesn't look right when their mouths move! It's like they took a 3D model and slapped a moving 2D mouth on it. >.<

This is my huge problem with it. I can get past it because I am interested in what they are doing with the story, but it's not that good.
Also, I hate how they do Cleo's hair. It bugs me sooo much. It looks like a badly placed wig.

Yeah, so the animation is super awkward, that's a given. But what I can't get past is that in trying to add more action & adventure to the series, they somehow managed to make it more boring. Since all the extra minutes seemed to bring to the table amounted to filler dialogue between Drac & her Dad. I miss the daily scholastic shenanigans like picture days and proms and science experiments gone awry.

I liked the heavy makeup background zombie girl though.
Timeless beauty cast in plastic.

Thanks for posting the link!

Yes, it's new and different than the older animation. There's things I like and things that I wish could be different. That said….

I imagine the Ghoul Squad is to compete with all the 'superhero' and action stuff that's a trend now. How about the shout-out to Charlie's Angels with the Ghoul Squad freeze pose?!?! That the ghouls are going to go and find all these new monsters - well, new doll opportunities! So perhaps MH is going to continue….

I too, liked the backgrounders in the classroom! Hope to see more. I really liked Mr. Dracula - am intrigued by there being another grown-up monster in doll form. (could Mr. Dracula and Bloodgood be a potential dating match? Hmmmmmm)

I liked the Fangelica character, but yeah, would like to see more of her storyline, and it does seem weird that her doll is pink, and a small kid rather than a tween as she appeared in the video. Good idea to put the Fangelica head on an EAH pixie body.

You've broken poor Hexiciah Steam's heart T_T

(lol, seriously though I hope Bloodgood comes back and SOON!)

I wonder if the series is set before the climax of Welcome to Monster High, and before Ari and Moanica joined the school. We haven't seen Moanica in this yet either, unless they're saving her for a more dramatic episode.

That would be a good fan fiction - a love triangle amongst the faculty!! Who will Bloodgood choose?!?! I doubt Mattel would make it happen, but it could be a really good story….

Now that you mention her... it seems she has gotten a lot of less releases than when they were trying to shove her down our throats as Ghoulia's cheap replacement.
(I do miss when they were trying to make Skelita their sixth ranger)

I haven't watched yet, but the Cleo and sand thing for some reason just reminds me of that 'I don't like sand' Star Wars prequel meme. Of course I think of that dang meme whenever sand is mentioned ANYWHERE. :P

IT'S COARSE, IRRITATING, AND IT GETS EVERYWHERE. XD

Really hoping I can get past the rough animation since the storyline seems really cute. ;____;
