Mari, Mari! Sweeter than a cherry. Head is kinda airy. SHE LOVES YOU!
Kari, Kari! Horrible and scary! If you mess with Mari, SHE'LL KILL YOU!
— The Theme

From the creator of Megas XLR.

Mari and Kari are identical twins. They're best friends and never apart. Mari is the liveliest girl you'll ever meet. Kari is too. Her problem: she's dead. From there it just gets weird.

Mari Kari is a Web Original created by Fear Net in the Summer of 2010. Spanning 8 minisodes, the series is notable for its cartoony style and Happy Tree Friends style gore and mayhem.
