Grim & Evil is an American animated television series created by Maxwell Atoms for Cartoon Network. It consists of two segments which were eventually spun off into their own series, The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy and Evil Con Carne.[1]

The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy deals with the adventures of two young children respectively named Billy and Mandy who, after celebrating the birthday of Billy's pet hamster, bet that the Grim Reaper would lose to them in Limbo at his own game of limbo in an effort to save the hamster. Billy and Mandy win the bet, and Grim becomes their "best friend forever" as part of their deal.[2]

Evil Con Carne follows the adventures of Hector Con Carne, a wealthy playboy whose body is destroyed in a tremendous explosion. His only surviving organs are his brain and stomach, which have been placed in jars and attached to a circus bear named Boskov.

The show premiered its run on August 24, 2001, on Cartoon Network, and ended its first 13-episode run on October 18, 2002.[3] However, there was also another batch of 14 episodes made for the show, but were aired on Cartoon Network when the show was split into both shows in 2003. The second (and final) season of this era was aired in the UK on October 20, 2003, followed by a 27th episode as the combo special on October 22, 2004.


The series' existence is largely the result of a viewer poll. An Internet and call-in event called the Big Pick was held from June 16, to August 25, 2000. The three final choices were The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, Whatever Happened to... Robot Jones?, Longhair and Doubledome. Out of the three, Grim & Evil won the poll with 57% of the vote[4] and became its own series.[5] The first season appeared on Cartoon Network to kick off the "Cartoon Cartoon Fridays Big Pick Weekend" on August 24, 2001.[6] Whatever Happened to... Robot Jones? would later be made into a full (though short-lived) series despite losing; Longhair and Doubledome would reappear with another pilot episode in another Big Pick-style show in 2002, only to fall short once again. Along with Billy & Mandy, Atoms produced another short, Evil Con Carne, that would later be combined with the former as one show, under the title Grim & Evil. The decision came as Cartoon Network wanted the show to have a "middle cartoon" to air in-between the Billy & Mandy segments (similar to the Dial M for Monkey and The Justice Friends shorts in Dexter's Laboratory, and the I Am Weasel segments on Cow and Chicken). Sometimes the format was reversed, with a single Grim segment in between two Evil shorts. Both sides of the show were influenced by cartoons Atoms watched in the 1980s; Grim took inspiration from classic comedies from Hanna-Barbera and Warner Bros., while Evil was a spoof of the era's action cartoons such as G.I. Joe and Transformers.[7]

In 2003, before the series aired in reruns for the final time on June 8, the network separated it into The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy and Evil Con Carne, effectively giving both a full-length series, despite the 2003 episodes originally made for Grim & Evil. The short-lived Evil Con Carne series was cancelled once all the already-made episodes previously seen on Grim & Evil were aired. In 2004, Evil Con Carne was given another short-lived run with the newly created intro and end credits, only to be canceled again. Grim & Evil, in its original form, has not been seen on TV since 2003.[b] Evil Con Carne's General Skarr became a recurring character on Billy and Mandy beginning in the second season, including as a main character in the TV film Underfist, with other Evil Con Carne characters making occasional cameo appearances.

On October 22, 2004, Cartoon Network aired the half-hour Billy & Mandy/Evil Con Carne combo: "Five-O-Clock Shadows" and "Ultimate Evil", with it being the final half-hour Grim & Evil episode.

The series began airing again in 2005 as part of the Cartoon Cartoon Show block on Cartoon Network, as well as the extra 13 episodes out of nowhere.

On March 16, 2007, Cartoon Network aired the 11-minute Billy & Mandy/Evil Con Carne crossover episode: "Company Halt". In the episode, Con Carne and Skarr appear in Endsville, in order to recruit Ghastly and revive Evil Con Carne (the organization, not the segment) in another attempt to take over the world; naturally, like most of their other schemes and misadventures, it ends in failure when Ghastly turns against Hector once he tries to destroy her garden in an attempt to kill Billy, and crushes him with a giant catapult (which they were to use to destroy the neighborhood), causing Skarr and the rest of the army run away.

The series aired again on October 29, 2010, for the first time since the Cartoon Cartoon Show airing, but the title sequence did not play at all and all of the cartoons were three Billy & Mandy cartoons from the Grim & Evil era. On October 20, 2017, all 26 episodes produced were released on Cartoon Network on Demand, including 13 other episodes made up of segments that aired as separated series, but put together in their original Grim & Evil format (two Billy & Mandy segments surrounding one Evil Con Carne, only this time, there are three cases where it is entirely Billy & Mandy). They were also listed on the website of The Detour on Teletoon in Canada.[8] On January 8, 2019, Maxwell Atoms confirmed on Tumblr that these 13 extra episodes aired in the United States, but the dates that they aired on are still currently unknown, though it can be assumed that it would be sometime in 2002 and 2003, as the credits for each episode have copyright dates of those years.[9]

On October 2, 2023, the series returned in reruns on its original format with the series' opening and credits on Adult Swim for their Checkered Past programming block, despite listings referring to the show as Billy & Mandy. The episode aired was episode 16 which had not premiered in the United States.

Grim & Evil currently airs in reruns on Checkered Past.

Grim, Billy, Mandy, Boskov, Hector Con Carne, Major Dr. Ghastly, and General Skarr made appearances in the Teen Titans Go! Warner Bros. 100th Anniversary Special.[10]


The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy[edit]

The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy is a series about two neighborhood kids, moronic yet enthusiastic Billy and emotionless Mandy who force the Grim Reaper to be their best friend forever after defeating the Messenger of Death in a game of Limbo. This is the main segment, as two The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy episodes are wrapped around an episode of Evil Con Carne (or, on rare episodes, vice versa). For episodes 21, 25, and 26, only the Grim half was shown.

Evil Con Carne[edit]

Evil Con Carne is a series about an aspiring dictator obsessed with taking over the world, whose disembodied brain is transplanted onto the head of a slow-witted circus bear. This is usually the backup to The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy as Evil Con Carne is put between two The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy cartoons. On occasion, the format is reversed, with a two-part Evil Con Carne cartoon sandwiching one The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy cartoon. The Evil half was not shown in episodes 21, 25, or 26.

Billy's pet hamster, Mr. Snuggles, celebrates his 10th birthday, so the Grim Reaper comes for him. However, Mandy, Billy's friend, is reluctant in allowing it, so she proposes a deal to the Grim Reaper: if he beats the kids in a game, he can take the hamster, but if he loses, he will spare the hamster's life and become their "best friend forever". The Grim Reaper transports the kids to limbo, where he challenges them to a game of limbo. Despite his best effort, Grim ends up losing because he is attacked by Mr. Snuggles at Mandy's own command.

Season 2 (2003–04)[edit]

Note: A batch of fourteen Grim & Evil episodes premiered on Cartoon Network in the United States in 2003 and 2004 when The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy and Evil Con Carne were split into two half hour shows, but they were not made for the two standalone shows, as they were also made for the second season Grim & Evil in the UK in October 2003. Although not released officially in 2003 as episodes of the show, Maxwell Atoms confirmed that Cartoon Network erratic broadcast schedule, with the exceptions of Jacked-Up Halloween, Five O' Clock Shadows, and Ultimate Evil. They were, however, aired on various channels outside of the United States, including Canada's Teletoon Detour and France's Boing. Episodes 21, 25, and 26 do not contain any Evil Con Carne segments. The entire second and final season was eventually released in October 2017 on Cartoon Network on Demand.

Mandy dares them to go retrieve the dice, and she befriends Mrs. Doolin, who is alive and well, and who says that all the stories told about her (that anything that went beyond her fence into her garden never came back) are inventions from Grim, whom she beat long time ago at a staring contest. Fearing for Mandy's life, Billy also ventures into the house, but Mrs. Doolin and Mandy scare him away by posing as ghosts. It appears that Mrs. Doolin is in fact a ghost, and when she meant "beating Grim", it meant that she "beaten death".

It turns out Kuan Ti is actually Eris in disguise, and this was just another of her schemes to create chaos. Seeing how Grim has a chance to get rid of the kids and finally be free, he tries to take advantage of this by making Billy a superb fighter too, so he and Mandy can fight ferociously to the death until the entire arena is destroyed.

Billy, Mandy, and Grim go trick-or-treating for Halloween, but Irwin is left behind because he needs a scarier costume. After pulling a trick on an old lady, and getting some candies, Grim tells the story of why people pull pranks, which he was partially responsible for. He tells about Jack (voiced by Wayne Knight), a prankster of the old Endsville who just never knew when to stop. One day, the citizens decided to punish him for his constant pranks, and they pulled a prank on the queen, but signed it "From: Jack"; in consequence, the angry queen sent a knight to kill Jack. When Grim went for Jack's soul, Jack stole his scythe. In return for his scythe, Grim promised Jack eternal life, but after closing the deal, Grim takes his scythe and cuts Jack's head off, showing that no one will ever see his face again. Afterwards, Jack decided to use a pumpkin for a head, becoming Jack O'Lantern the Mandrill Baboon and Sloth, and, suffering from the loss of his real head and learning his lesson about pulling pranks too far and whom he does them to, every Halloween he goes out to pull pranks on the citizens of Endsville, and waits 364 more days a year until next Halloween in a solitary mode in his own house. After hearing the story, Billy splits from the group and finds Jack's house downtown. Jack realizes Billy is carrying the actual Reaper's scythe, so he takes it from him and uses it to open the gates of the Underworld and bring forth ghosts, which cause havoc in the city. Jack then plans to get revenge on Grim by cutting his head off which, being cut with the Reaper's scythe, will stay off "forever". To stop Jack from carrying on with his vengeance, Mandy sets up a series of pranks for him. The pranks affect Irwin instead, causing major laughter from Jack and his ghouls, which explode and return to the Underworld. Grim recovers his scythe and sends Jack to the Underworld too.

As General Skarr is once again annoyed by Billy, Hector Con Carne and Major Dr. Ghastly arrive in his house with the intention of luring him back to the recently relaunched Evil Con Carne world domination organization. Although initially refusing to rejoin, Skarr later accepts with the condition that Billy and the other neighbors be destroyed.

Note: This episode belongs to The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy.


The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy[edit]

  • Billy (voiced by Richard Horvitz): He is an 8-year-old happy-go-lucky child with an extremely low IQ of −5. He was outperformed by a shovel and a candy necklace on an IQ test. He has an extremely large, pink nose, wears a blue and white striped shirt, and covers his orange hair with a red hat. His main affiliations are Grim and Mandy. Mandy is Billy's best friend, though she treats him more like a servant than a friend. It has been hinted several times that Billy may have underlying feelings for Mandy that even he (in his stupidity) may not fully realize. Billy is definitely kinder to Grim than Mandy is, and while he may go against the Reaper's advice and use him as a plaything, he appears to genuinely like him. Of the two children, Billy is the one who most often tells Grim that he is his "best friend".
  • Mandy (voiced by Grey DeLisle): She is a girl about Billy's age who has (mostly) a morbid, cynical and merciless attitude. However, unlike Billy, she is more stable, sane and intelligent. She hates everything, especially unicorns. She will nag, punch, or otherwise injure (physically, emotionally, mentally or any combination of the three) anyone who gets in her way. She is Billy's "best friend" regardless of the awful way she treats him. She is known for rarely smiling; on one of the occasions on which this happens,[citation needed] it causes reality to fall apart. She orders Grim and Billy to do chores for her, among a slew of other grunt work. She is naturally hostile and cynical and is shown in one episode to have physical difficulty saying the word "please". She never smiles, except in "Meet the Reaper", "Opposite Day", "Look Alive!", "A Dumb Wish", "Something Stupid This Way Comes", "Dream A Little Dream", "Crushed", and "Mandy the Merciless" where she does crack a smile.
  • The Grim Reaper (voiced by Greg Eagles): He is over 137,000 years old (as his early childhood took place during the Stone Age) and speaks with a Jamaican accent. The continuity of how Grim got his reaper status and powers jumps around quite a few times and it is unknown which way he really got his powers (for example, in The Spider Queen, he was elected to his position as the Grim Reaper while he was in middle school; however, in "A Grim Prophecy", it is shown that he was the Grim Reaper since his childhood with his parents forcing him to be the Reaper, which is revealed to be all a dream and further contradicted in a later episode where he is seen stumbling over his scythe to become Grim Reaper). His scythe is the source of his powers and possesses many magical qualities; although he is still capable of using magic without it, these instances are quite rare.

Evil Con Carne[edit]

  • Hector Con Carne (voiced by Phil LaMarr): He is a dynamic, evil playboy type, reduced to an anthropomorphic brain and a stomach after a gigantic explosion. Somehow, the stomach has taken on a life of its own. He is often frustrated by the difficulty of taking over the world in its current state.
  • Major Dr. Ghastly (voiced by Grey DeLisle): A mad scientist, Ghastly is the brains behind all Hector's plans. Ghastly really does not seem to be intent on taking over the world; she does get more interested in inventing things and getting closer to Hector.
  • General Skarr (voiced by Armin Shimerman): Con Carne's paramilitary leader. He is a cold-hearted, hateful and harsh man, with a scar on his face, and one eye. He tends to be more evil than Con Carne himself, many times trying to overthrow his leader. He has made several appearances on Maxwell Atoms' other show, "The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy", as Billy's next-door neighbor. He has also starred in the Billy & Mandy spin-off, Underfist. Skarr seems to resemble Fearless Leader, Herr Starr, and General Armin Skull. It has been stated that he quit working for Hector Con Carne after they were "bought out" by the cartoon industry because they did not want the competition in world domination.
  • Boskov (voiced by Frank Welker): A former Russian circus bear, Boskov carries both of Hector's brain and stomach on his body, via metal plates on said spots. He is usually controlled by Hector and seems to care for everyone around him. He is sometimes difficult to control due to his animal instincts and lack of intelligence.
  • Stomach (voiced by Armin Shimerman): This former stomach of Hector Con Carne will only talk if it is about food.
