The show seems to be cancelled at this point, as it has been almost 4 years since an episode was aired, and even reruns of the show have stopped airing, as of July 2012. The show's creator has stated that she's made 7 more episodes, but it seems Nick has no plans to air it

''Making Fiends'' is an animated television series, created by Creator/AmyWinfrey. It is a spin-off of an online series of the same name and started airing on [[Creator/{{Nicktoons}} Nicktoons Network]] on October 4, 2008.The show revolves around the life of Charlotte, a sweet, innocent little girl who is the new girl in the town of Clamburg (she used to live in Vermont, according to the first webisode). Charlotte is also incredibly naïve, and is unable to think badly of anyone around her. Charlotte quickly makes "friends" with [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Vendetta]] (or so she thinks), a horrid little girl who makes monsters, or fiends, through baking. Vendetta cannot stand Charlotte's happy go lucky nature, and will often go to great lengths to destroy Charlotte (or at least get her out of the way for a little bit). These attempts inevitably backfire, usually resulting in Vendetta doing great damage to herself. When they do succeed, Charlotte can only see the bright side of her situation and will become more annoying than usual. [[StatusQuoIsGod Everything is back to normal by the end of the episode]].

* AdaptationExpansion: The TV series expanded the scope of the series beyond the school and into the town, allowing for greater exploration on how Vendetta's rule works out for Clamburg. It also fleshes out Charolotte and Vendetta's home lives and provides deeper characterization for many of the side characters.
* ADayInTheLimelight: Marion, Marvin and Mr. Milk "New Best Friend," "Marvin The Middle Manager," and "Toupee," respectively.

* DevelopmentHell: The show had been in the planning stages for years and there were promos made for it ages before it actually aired on tv, only for it to get a shaky under promoted start and then tossed back into development.
** The second season has been this. Six episodes in, the series stopped airing episodes. The last episode was in 2008, though the creators has season 2 episodes.



* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The web animations used to come in available [=DVDs=] with many alternate versions and character commentaries of the webisodes. Since ''Making Fiends'' is licensed by Nickelodeon, the creators can't sell any of its merchandise, even what they made independently. All of the DVD was uploaded by someone on [=YouTube=] at one time, but he deleted his account over a year ago. The only way you can get a DVD of the webisodes is if you win the [[http://www.makingfiends.com/artcontest2010/contest2010.htm Making Fiends Art Contest]].
** As of May 2013, Amy Winfrey has an [[http://www.youtube.com/user/fancymeats official YouTube channel]] and has uploaded all twenty-one of the original web episodes.



* TalkingToHimself: The voice cast for the TV series consists of just nine people, including the director and the composer. Only three of these nine people voice regulars. The web version had even fewer voice actors. Seriously.
