TheGrimReaper has come for a soul -- specifically, a hamster in his dying days -- but he's stopped from taking the hamster to the afterlife by two polar-opposite children: The [[DumbIsGood blissfully idiotic Billy]] (the hamster's owner) and [[CreepyChild the cynical, amoral Mandy]] (Billy's best friend.) [[ChessWithDeath The pair challenge "Grim" to a limbo contest to save the hamster]]; when Grim loses, he becomes Billy and Mandy's newest friend -- and by "friend," we mean that he's contractually bound to cater to their every whim. Grim begrudgingly serves as something of an underworld version of Film/MaryPoppins, thanklessly placating Billy's demands for cheap entertainment and Mandy's schemes for self-profit with his magical scythe while desperately trying to find a way to be rid of the duo for good. Thus go ''The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy'', a popular Creator/CartoonNetwork series created by Maxwell Atoms.
