  • Oh the memories... of seeing almost every episode but this one.

    I never saw this episode! Cartoon Network, WHY YOU NO SHOW ME? This is easilly the best episode of this show Ive seen. Its no Invader Zim, but its still pretty good. Would watch again.
  • The pilot episodes, both were really awesome!

    Meet the Reaper: Pretty cool way to start the series, the episode was really great and funny, my favorite parts are when they play limbo, also the part when Grim came to Billy & Mandy was pretty hilarious, about the ending, im not pretty fond of it.

    Grade for Meet the Reaper: A

    Skeletons in the Water Closet: Much better then ''Meet the Reaper'' in my option, this episode made me laugh alot when i was younger, Billy's mom was really funny with her moves in this one, favorite parts would have to be when Billy's mom and Grim screamed, also at the end when Grim laughs seemed like he planned all it, it used to be scarring me.

    Grade for Skeletons in the Water Closet: A+moreless

    Meet the Reaper- Billy and Mandy are hanging out when Billy's hamster dies, and the Grim Reaper comes to take it. Mandy then challenges the Reaper to a game of Limbo. Will Billy and Mandy win and get a best friend. Perfect humor and intro to the series. 10/10 a+

    Skeltons in the Water Closet- When Billy's mom begins seeing skeltons (i.e. Grim) see thinks she's going mad. Will she be able to get ahold on this phobia/obession? Perfect for the most part, I don't care for Billy's mom in many episodes, but she was funny in this one. 10/10 A+

    Overall, a perfect introduction pilot to the series. 10/10 A+moreless

    skeletons in the water closet- billy's mom keeps thinking she sees skeletons. does she or is she overreacting?

    good pilot episode, as it does a nice job at introducing the main characters. sure it does not introduce every main character but it does introduce the absolute main characters, and it had an interesting plot in both episodes, so it gets an A+ from memoreless
