Clone High

Back in the 80s, in a bid to make a superior genetic army, a secret part of the government made clones of famous people from the past. At the moment however, the clones are struggling through their teenage years at Clone High. Tales typically revolve around gangly good-hearted Abe Lincoln and his friends--goth girl, Joan of Arc, and hyperactive comedy relief, Gandhi. Abe has a serious crush on Cleopatra and would do anything to win her highly superficial love. This frequently puts him at odds with popular womanizing jock, JFK, and breaks the heart of Joan, who is nursing a crush of her own for Abe.

animated series Clone High © NelvanaThe series sparked outrage in India over its portrayl of Gandhi as hyperactive party-guy. Gandhi is still much revered figure in India and on the January 30, 2003, the 55th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, approximately 150 protestors (including members of parliament) gathered in New Delhi. They vowed to fast in response to the series which led to MTV offering a quick apology, saying "Clone High was created and intended for an American audience," and, "We recognize and respect that various cultures may view this programming differently, and we regret any offense taken by the content in the show." -- source: Wikipedia
