In an interview with Collider the LEGO Movie and 21 Jump Street directors revealed that they have big plans for their little cartoon series. And that they have been talking "very regularly" about how they can bring this series back (in any form really). But the good stuff is their quotes on keeping the same feel and sass to this series.

Lord: It's also a tricky thing because we basically made a PG-13 TV series, and if you're gonna do a movie you wonder, 'Am I gonna have to justify the budget that it's gonna take by trying to broaden this to a family audience, and is that gonna kill what was fun about the original thing?' Because there's so much blood in the original series (laughs).

Miller: And innuendo or whatever.

Lord: And JFK sex jokes. Are you going to wind up defanging it?

Miller: Are you gonna make it R? PG-13?

Lord: It's trying to cross-reference what it's gonna cost and what it's gonna make.

If you haven't seen Clone High, get to it! It's a great Canadian cartoon series about a high school of clones, all made from the DNA of great women and men from our past. But now they are all teenagers and dealing with puberty and crushes and whatnot. Plus, their adoptive parents are hilarious. It's great. Let's hope Hollywood and the lawyers will just let these two do whatever the hell they want with this series, because they've earned it.

CLONE HIGH GIF PARTY

(ALSO, THEY LEFT IT ON A CLIFF HANGER AND JOHN STAMOS WAS THERE AND MARIE CURIE WAS SO AMAZING AND THE BOARD OF SHADOWY FIGURES AAHHHHH)

lets see if I can remember the opening song with out looking it up:

Way, way back in the 1980s

Secret government employees

Took amazing (?) guys and ladies

And made amusing genetic copies

Now the clones are sexy teens now

They're gonna make it if they try

Something something

Clone high

(How did I do?)
