You can find it here if you missed my last article on Batman the Brave and the Bold.

With summer in full swing, it will likely be hot out, and kids just want to watch TV instead of playing outside. I am here to help with a recommendation. I am cheating a little here again because I used to watch Billy and Mandy with my kids. I will have more cartoons in the Would Andie Watch It series.

In the cartoon, Billy and Mandy manage to make the Grim Reaper their permanent companion. The titular Billy and Mandy are complete opposites of each other. Billy is a brainless simpleton who goes back and forth from being kind, generous and other times devious and mean. On the other hand, Mandy is always cold-hearted and borders on evil, but she is brilliant and calculating.

Mandy is horribly abusive to Billy and Grim, but they loyally stay by her side. Even though Mandy is mean to them, don’t let anyone else be mean to them. She will end them. She is merciless and scary. So much so that most people find Mandy scarier than the Grim Reaper. To be fair, in this iteration of him, it’s not hard. Even Billy can be.

Billy is absolutely brainless. In fact, an X-ray in an early episode confirmed the absence of said body part. He is a bit selfish, and with the littlest hint of fun or material gain and Billy becomes gluttonous. Against all odds, Billy has a son named Jeff. Jeff is a giant spider but a sweetheart. Unfortunately, Billy HATES spiders and tries to kill Jeff.

The Grim Reaper, called Grim on the show, is pretty indifferent most of the time, though he is intimidated by Mandy on a semi-regular basis. Billy and Mandy come up with hair-brained schemes all the time. Grim is either a part of them or gives them the magic tools to cause chaos and destruction. You would think he would learn not to after having to clean up after them.

The adventures are ones that will have you shaking your head at the absurdity. The last one I watched had a variation of Pokemon. The cards Grim gave Billy and Erwin had monsters come to life when thrown into the game. They go to different dimensions and even go on adventures with the Greek goddess Eris, goddess of discord and strife.

I let my small kids watch it, but it might be better for kids a little older. When I say small kids, I mean when they were ages three to eight. In my defense, it is on Cartoon Network. Teens would probably like it if they gave it a shot. I know many adults who love this show too. My own kids were thrilled to see it again. I guess telling on myself for having watched it before and letting you know my kids have watched it answers the question, “Would Andie watch it?”. You can find Billy and Mandy on Max.

Have you watched The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy? What are your thoughts on the show? For those of us who saw it, would you let your little kids watch it? Let me know in the comments below. Until next time, have fun storming the castle!
