Anybody think we should start splitting the pages for the different continuities, especially with Welcome to Monster High coming out soon. Maybe something like...
- Monster High Generation One — doll diaries, books, webisodes, and specials from launch through the Lost Movie, including the pre-soft-reboot things like Monster High New Ghoul At School and volume 1. Not sure if it should be classified under Western Animation or Toys, though.
- Monster High Generation Two — new series starting with Welcome to Monster High
- Monster High Scary Girls — the series of anime shorts that rebooted the franchise in Japan since the original performed poorly there
- Monster High — the Harrison books

Seems like all the janitors are either dead or moved to Ever After High's page. I'll take the helm.

What are we going to do about the new anime? http://www.mattel.co.jp/monsterhigh/anime/ We should make an addition about it at some point. I know this page isn't edited much, but that is a bit of a milestone.

I cut this entire thing, and here are my reasons why. In a nutshell, GCPTR does not mean metaphors or downplaying!
- Getting Crap Past the Radar: In the storybook that comes with the doll, Frankie suspects her dad's up to something in the basement and asks her mom if she's getting a new brother or sister. Frankie's mother nearly chokes on her coffee in surprise and asks Frankie where she ever could've gotten that idea.
- Mattel put an eyebrow ring and gave both Holt Hyde and Jackson Jekyll tattoos. The tattoo is a yin-yang symbol and is meant to show that they are indeed the same person.
- When Toralei messes around with Cupid's bow in "Why Do Ghouls Fall in Love" several odd couples pop up-including a couple same-sex pairs.
- At the beginning of this same episode, Toralei coughs up a large wad of bird feathers. One can only guess why that was...
- Ghoulia's groaning zombie speak is used quite effectively for this very purpose, a prime example being "Substitute Creature" where she apparently says something about their sick teacher's possible condition that horrifies everyone. Of course, we don't get to hear it ourselves because all we hear is her zombie groan.
- The series has a thing for inserting terrible puns in the characters' speech, most of which are cheesy, but some are actually quite disturbing. Entrail Park, fleshman, dismembers, self-decapitating, etc.
- The entire theme of the Fright On! special is a rather thinly disguised portrayal of racial tensions and the civil rights movement of the 1960s, with a new integrated school, racial tensions from rivals now going to the same school, and an old white guy trying to start a race war to keep two monster species from becoming friendly, which he thought would be bad for humanity.
- Clawdeen's "School's Out" wave 2 doll comes with an elaborate 3-finger ring◊... that's been compared to a pair of brass knuckles with small claws on them. Even if it is meant to be werewolf jewelry, the thing still looks rather vicious.
