Monster High the Ghoulish Trend Setters

This past summer Mattel released an addictive franchise that has not looked back, Monster High. This is a line of fashion dolls inspired by monster movies and horror fiction so unlike most fashion dolls these are more eerie. Most characters are being related to or are the offspring of such famous monsters as Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Wolfman, among others. But this franchise does not only limit to its doll addiction but branches out to other products as well, plush toys, stationery, bags, accessories, apparel, and rolls out to later become a full-length feature film since the hit online episodes have become such a hit.

The online episodes or webisodes which premiered in May have ran a length of 1-2 minutes and has run a total of 15 episodes in its first seasonal run and is now in its second season.  A 30-minute Halloween special was shown on Nickelodeon this past October 31st entitled "Monster High: New Ghoul @ School". For this one time airing, Allisoon Iraheta had two songs playing in the backdrop; "Scars' and "Friday I'll Be Over U". It was said that the plot revolved round Frankie Stein as being the new student at Monster High and what she dealt with during her first week. Also in this episode’s run we get introduced to the other characters that have sparked our interest, Draculaura, Clawdeen, Lagoona, Cleo de Nile, Deuce Gorgon, Ghoulia, and Holt Hyde. Aside from this set of characters there are more on the horizon, Jackson Jekyll, Ghost Girl, Abbey Bominable, Spektra Von Hauntington, and Operetta. All of whom are based on the characters from, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Abominable Snowman, and Phantom of the Opera.
