Monster High Party
Monster High hit the scene last summer (2010) and was received with excitement from young girls and teenagers alike! Riding on the coattails of The Bratz, and following in the footsteps of Barbie, The Monster High girls have become a staple in the lives of our daughters, nieces, and granddaughters.

The Plot of Monster High
Before we delve into the characters themselves, let's take a brief look at the show itself. Monster High is set in a high school called...well...Monster High. The wepisodes follow the lives of roughly a dozen teenage kids of famous horror monsters we all know and love. In fact, all of the characters on the show are monsters of some sort, from the students to the staff.
The episodes center around normal every day things that teenagers would deal with--just with some silly monster twists. Homework, crushes, jealousy between friends, parents or teachers giving you a hard time--most episodes revolve around topics like this.
Each of the main characters has his or her own unique look and personality. They also have their own unique pet! Now let's learn about the main characters a bit more...
Frankie is the main character of the show. Her father is The Frankenstein Monster and his bride. Frankie is only 15 days old when the show begins!
She is the "new kid" at Monster High. In addition to dealing with everything that goes along with that, she often has issues with her body parts falling apart (how embarrassing!).
She's very sweet, athletic, and a little naive. She has attributes of both her parents in her looks--nuts and bolts holding her together, two different colored eyes, stitches (from her dad), and a pretty face with long black and white streaked hair (from her mom).
Frankie's pet is named Waznit and is, well, a Frankenstein Montser pet, consisting of part dog, cat, fish, dragon, and a few other creatures.
Draculaura is obviously the daughter of Dracula. She is 1,599 years old but very young at heart. She refuses to drink blood, as she is a vegan. In fact, she gets a little faint at the mere mention of blood.
Unlike her dark, dank, and traditional father, Draculaura is lively and spunky. She's very sweet and considerate of others. She can be somewhat ditsy as well.
Draculaura has a light pink hue to her skin and vampire fangs. She loves black and pink and her outfits usually consist of these colors. Her hair is streaked with black and pink and usually worn in pigtails.
Her pet is, of course, a bat. His name is Count Fabulous and is often dressed in a matching outfit to Draculaura's.
Clawdeen is the daughter of The Werewolf. She is 15 years old (but in dog years, what would that be?) She is extremely self-confident and very loyal to her friends and family.
She has a very large family, one might say a "pack", and although it seems like they are always bickering and snapping at each other, the truth is that they would do anything to protect each other.
Clawdeen has dark skin and pointed wolf eras. She is very fashionable and fierce in her looks, often wearing a lot of "bling".
Her pet is a cute little kitten named Crescent who is just as soft to pet as Clawdeen herself.
Lagoona is the daughter of the famous Sea Monster. Beause she comes from "down under the sea", her character has an Australian accent. She is very laid back, being the calmest of the group. She enjoys water sports and has a soft spot for marine conservation.
Her parents are both creatures of the ocean, spending most of their time away from home and in the water. Lagoona is very independent because of this.
She is blue in hue, has blue streaks in her long blonde hair, and has webbed hands and small fins on the back of her calves. Being out of water dries her skin out, so she is constantly applying lotion.
Her pet is a piranha she carries around in a fish bowl purse. His name is Neptuna and he accompanies Lagoona everywhere.
Cleo de Nile
Cleo is the oldest of the Monster High girls, coming in at right around 5,800 years old. She is the daughter of The Mummy. She is the head cheerleader for The Fearleaders and definitely let's it go to her head.
Coming from a line of royalty, and having been a princess "back in the day", Cleo expects to be treated very well and can often be selfish, vain, and mean. Despite all this, she proves herself to be a good friend on a regular basis.
Cleo is the only character with a steady boyfriend, Duece Gorgon (son of Medusa). She has a definite Egyptian look to her with long black hair streaked with gold and plenty of gold jewelery.
Her pet is a snake named Hisette who also seems to think he's royalty. In addition, the de Nile household has seven cats, more than likely to portray how revered cats were in ancient Egypt.
Ghoulia Yelps is a zombie. Because of her zombie traits, she can't really talk and mostly just moans and groans. She is kind of the nerd of the group, being the smartest of the girls and the shyest.
Her and Cleo de Nile share a tight friendship, which is odd because zombies are usually looked down upon by other monsters. Her and Frankie also form a sister-like friendship throughout the show.
Ghoulia is very pale and has light blue hair. She has bad posture and her facial expressions can be less than emphatic due to her zombie traits. Her look is very "sexy nerd".
Her pet is an owl named Sir Hoots A Lot. And although he's a great companion to Ghoulia, it irritates her that he refuses to be a courier.
Duece is the only main male character on the show, although there are other supporting male characters. He is the son of Medusa and the boyfriend of Cleo de Nile. He is the quintessential extreme sports jock, with a skater look and muscles.
He is likable and somehow manages to deal with Cleo's stuck-up ways. He has to wear sunglasses all of the time because his gaze can turn others in to stone--at least for a short while.
With green scaly hair and snakes coming out of his head, you can see how he resembles his mother. And with Cleo's love for snakes, it's also easy to see why the attraction is there!
Duece's pet is a rat named Perseus who actually has two tails of his own.
Other Supporting Monsters
In addition to these main characters, others were introduced as more episodes were made. Here is a list and brief description of those characters:
Holt Hyde/Jackson Jeckyll: Son of Mr. Hyde/Dr. Jekyll
Nefera de Nile: Sister of Cloe de Nile and daughter of The Mummy
Abbey Bominable: Daughter of The Abominable Snowman (The Yeti)
Clawd Wolf: Brother of Clawdeen Wolf and son of The Werewolf
Spectra Vondergeist: Daughter of The Ghosts
Headmistress Bloodgood: Most likely modeled after The Headless Horseman, she is the headmistress of Monster High
Through the episodes, many other characters are introduced, but these are the main supporting characters.
