Response to Vigilant Citizen Article: Monster High: A Doll Line Introducing Children to the Illuminati Agenda


Well Mummies & Mansters tonight I am infuriated at the propaganda of an anti-Illuminati group that has claimed our beloved guys & ghouls at Monster High are brainwashing the youth of America with symbolism of the Illuminati. 

First, let us define the word Illuminati….

 The Illuminati (plural of Latin illuminatus, “enlightened”) is a name given to several groups, both real and fictitious. Historically the name refers to the Bavarian Illuminati, an Enlightenment-era secret society founded on May 1, 1776 to oppose superstition, prejudice, religious influence over public life, abuses of state power, and to support women’s education and gender equality. The Illuminati—along with other secret societies—were outlawed by the Bavarian ruler, Charles Theodore, with the encouragement of the Roman Catholic Church, and permanently disbanded in 1785.[1] In the several years following, the group was vilified by conservative and religious critics who claimed they had regrouped and were responsible for the French Revolution.
In subsequent use, “Illuminati” refers to various organizations claiming or purported to have unsubstantiated links to the original Bavarian Illuminati or similar secret societies, and often alleged to conspire to control world affairs by masterminding events and planting agents in government and corporations to establish a New World Order and gain further political power and influence. Central to some of the most widely known and elaborate conspiracy theories, the Illuminati have been depicted as lurking in the shadows and pulling the strings and levers of power in dozens of novels, movies, television shows, comics, video games and music videos.

So how does all of this apply to the student bodies? Well, first you’d have to try not laugh your head off or burst at the seams reading this article posted on Vigilant Citizen.


If you manage to make it back let us now define Monster High….

Monster High is an American fashion doll franchise created by Mattel in July, 2010. The characters are inspired by monster movies, sci-fi horror, thriller fiction, and various creatures therefore distinguishing them from most fashion dolls. They were created by Garrett Sander, with illustrations by Kellee Riley and illustrator Glen Hanson.
The Monster High franchise also includes other consumer products such as stationery, bags, key chains, various toys and video games. There are also Monster High TV specials, a web series, a direct to DVD movie, and software. Lisi Harrison & Gitty Daneshvari are the authors of the Monster High books. The characters are depicted as being either related to or as offspring of famous monsters such as Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster, the Mummy, Medusa, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, the Phantom of the Opera, and zombies and more. The characters are usually referred to as ghouls, rather than girls.

Let us dig deeper into our student body…

Frankie Stein (voiced by Kate Higgins) – Frankie is the daughter of Frankenstein’s monster and the Bride of Frankenstein. When first introduced she was 15 days old (her age is assumed to have gone up as days passed). Clumsy, polite, kind, and a good friend to have and be around, Frankie has black and white hair in the show, but in the novel it is black (except when she is at the monster-themed dance), and her body is held together by stitches and has neck bolts. She is considered the new ghoul in school and eager to make friends. She is no longer considered the new ghoul in school because she has been a character for about a year now. This character has heterochromia, two different colored eyes and hair.

Clawdeen Wolf (voiced by Salli Saffioti) – Clawdeen is the daughter of a werewolf and has an older brother named Clawd Wolf, 1 younger sister named Howleen Wolf and 1 older sister named Clawdia. But she has many other brothers and sisters which is (voiced by Debi Derryberry) – Draculaura is the daughter of Count Dracula. She was 1599 years old and is now 1600 years old as of Valentine’s Day. She has a pet bat named Count Fabulous. She is in a relationship with Clawd Wolf, who is the brother of her best friend, Clawdeen. Although a vampire, she is a vegan and does not drink blood, and is scared to say the word “blood” as she faints when she hears it. Her fangs are visibly seen protruding from her mouth, even when not talking. Her skin is a pale pink.

Cleo de Nile (voiced by Salli Saffioti) – Cleo is the 5,842 year old daughter of The Mummy and has an older sister named Nefera who is 5,845; three years older than Cleo and a father named Ramses De Nile. She has a pet snake named Hissette who is venomous. She is the fearleading squad captain, the queen of the social scene and Deuce Gorgon’s girlfriend. She is a self-centered diva but also a good friend. In “Ghouls Rule”, she has befriended the niece of Headmaster Van Hellscream, Lilith van Hellscream.

Deuce Gorgon (voiced by Yuri Lowenthal in Volume 1 and 2, Cam Clarke in earlier parts of Volume 3, Evan Smith in later appearances) – Deuce is the 16-year-old son of Medusa. His whole family can turn anything to stone. He has a passion for cooking, but he keeps it a secret from most other students. He is the captain of the casketball team and loves skateboarding. Deuce is shown to be friendly, outgoing, confident, and with many friends. He is dating Cleo de Nile. He wears sunglasses to prevent him from turning other people to stone temporarily and has green snakes on his head.

Lagoona Blue (voiced by Laura Bailey) – Lagoona is the 15 year old daughter of the Creature from the Black Lagoon. Lagoona is from “Down Under”, which refers to her Australian accent. She is able to talk to water animals. She is also a lovable and sporty ghoul who is shown to have many friends around Monster High. Her skin dries out very easily and she has to use lots of moisturizer. Her pet is Neptuna, a Pirahna. She is the girlfriend of Gillington “Gil” Webber, whose parents initially did not approve of their relationship.

Ghoulia Yelps (voiced by Audu Paden) – Ghoulia is the daughter of a zombie. At age 16 (in monster years), she is said to be the ‘smartest ghoul in school’, and can only speak the “Zombie” language (consisting of moans and groans). She acted like a servant for Cleo de Nile for a time, but she is now treated more like a friend. She is dating “Slow-Moe” Deadovitch.

Abbey Bominable (voiced by Erin Fitzgerald) – She is the daughter of the Yeti, and her original language is Yetish. She speaks with a Russian accent, though her home, the Himalayas are more popularly found in areas of China.

Spectra Vondergeist (voiced by Erin Fitzgerald) – Spectra Vondergeist is the daughter of the Ghosts. She has violet-colored hair, bright, medium-blue sclera with violet-colored irises and dark-blue pupils. She can go through walls, and practice ‘ghost-limitations’, such as having things not go through her.

                 In the next few days I will be reaching out to the cast and Monster High community for educated responses to the article posted above and expect a huge increase in activity on this post based solely on the fact that these so-called vigilant citizens seem like nothing more than people who have way too much time on their hands to look for hidden messages that are merely a coincidence of designs. The stitches and scars on the ghouls are simply showing our children that acceptance is key. The image of the one eye are seem often but when I was in high school it seemed eyes were everywhere on us as students. Furthermore, Monster High is about accepting and embracing our unique differences.



 Hence our motto….



Be Unique, 
Be Yourself, 
Be your own MONSTER!

Introduction to Monster High for new Mummies and Daddies!




Be unique, Be Yourself, Be A Monster ?



So over the last five years I have heard more & more people of all ages asking “What is Monster High?” and “Why is Monster High so popular?” Well here is hopefully a very good answer to the parents who just don’t get it yet.

A leading Toy Expert stated recently “There’s a particularly important message for kids as our too-often-polarized culture defines people as groups—just as the high school culture can for kids still forming their identities.



Monster High is all about being an individual, celebrating what’s unique and different about each human being, seeing beyond the surface and somehow making it all work. It’s a very supportive message for kids delivered with appropriate humor and, of course, drop dead style.

I’ve always believed that we become what we play, that the identities we try on in the world of the imagination can become elements of ourselves as adults. Sure, the Monster High toys are beautiful and fun, but most importantly they encourage kids to explore their worlds and express themselves, and that’s the best play of all.” he stated. Truly an opinion many parents share across the world as well as the envy many of us share that our dolls growing up were not as “cool” as the Guys & Ghouls of Monster high.

    So What is Monster High ?

Monster High Dolls were released before Mid-Summer 2010. This year they are even bigger and have so many more dolls added to the range. Besides the original dolls we have now seen the Gloom Beach and Dead Tired series. Along with that has been the addition of further dolls such as Ghoulia Yelps, Jackson Jekyll, Holt Hyde, Clawd Wolf and Abbey Bominiable, Spectra Vondergeist. Another doll is due for release
this year known as called Toralei Stripe. These dolls are awesome and it’s great to see them modeled on how real high schools operate as well as including boy dolls in the series. Below is an article I wrote when Monster High Dolls first came out. I have added the latest dolls into the list of characters.




There’s some really thrilling news if you’re a doll lover. Monster High Dolls are the newest line from Mattel and are part of their new entertainment franchise.. Monster High Dolls are really cool teenage children that all come from famous monsters. They all attend Monster High where they experience regular teenage moments such as trying to fit in and make friends. The Monster High Dolls are refreshingly individual which will appeal to many doll fans.




Monster High Dolls are just a bit weird but with lots of style and humor. They all look so fashionable and stylish. Each doll comes with a pet, an accessory, a brush, a stand and a diary with a secret code that can unlock things on the website. The code gives you inside information on new characters, games and activities. The characters all have their own style and personality that is determined by their freaky flaw, for instance Draculaura can’t see her own reflection in a mirror.




So let’s introduce the guys & ghouls:

Frankie Stein

Frankie Stein is the daughter of Frankenstein and his bride. She’s 15 years old and comes with her pet Watzit which is made up of all different animal parts.




Draculaura

Draculaura is the daughter of Count Dracula. She’s centuries old but wow! she looks amazing. She comes with her pet bat Count Fabulous.




Clawdeen Wolf

Clawdeen Wolf is the daughter of the Werewolf. She’s 15 years old and comes with her little kitten, Crescent.




Lagoona Blue

The daughter of a Seamonster. She’s 15 years old and comes with her pet pirahna, Neptuna.




Cleo De Nile
The daughter of The Mummy. She’s the egyptian princess who’s over 5 thousand years old and like Draculaura she’s very well preserved. She comes with her pet cobra, Hissette.




Deuce Gorgon

The son of Medusa. He’s 16 years old and comes with his pet rat, Perseus.




Ghoulia Yelps

Ghoulia Yelps is the daughter of Zombies from the Zombie movie Night of The Living Dead. She is the smartest girl at Monster High. She has a baby blue colored owl named Sir Hoots-a-Lot.




Holt Hyde

Holt Hyde is the son of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. He is also the school DJ. Holt Hyde has blue skin and fiery red hair. He comes dressed in a red jacket with striped purple pants to compliment his fiery red hair. Holt has a pet chameleon named Crossfade.




Jackson Jekyll

Jackson Jekyll is the son of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. He is the alter ego of Holt Hyde. He’s the normal side and is the only human or “normie”  at Monster High.




Clawd Wolf

Clawd Wolf in the 17 year old son of the Werewolf and Clawdeen Wolf’s brother. He is one of the older Monster High Dolls and drives a car. Clawd Wolf is the big monster on the Monster High campus being the captain of the football team. He has a pet gargoyle bulldog named Rockseena.




Spectra Vondergeist

Spectra Vondergeist is the daughter of ghosts. She can float through the walls and possesses an “uncanny” ability to overhear school gossip.Spectra’s pet is a purple ghost ferret is named Rhuen.




Cleo De Nile and Deuce Gorgon are Monster High’s popular cool couple. Cleo is the mean girl of the school (every school has one) and Deuce is her super cool boyfriend. Frankie Stein, Draculaura and Clawdeen Wolf are BFF’s. Lagoona Blue fits in well with everyone




So far Mattel hasn’t released a full range of dolls clothes but that is all to come. In the meantime Bratz clothes will fit the Monster High gang even though they are a bit bigger than Bratz. The dolls are full articulated with the arms pulling apart at the elbow and wrist for easier redressing. For this reason and the fact that the earrings come off makes these dolls unsuitable for smaller kids. There’s a plush version available for the younger kids though. Yes, Mattel has thought of everything.




Mattel has big plans for the Monster High Franchise. The Monster High website has animated webisodes on it. Mattel has also released a further collection of dolls called “Dawn Of The Dance” where the dolls will be wearing 80′s style clothes to the school dance. There are also other versions out now too such as the “Dead Tired” series. A full live action feature film is coming out with Universal pictures which will propel Monster High even further.




Of course a Universal Picture can’t be released without a full range of clothes, handbags, shoes, fashion accessories, hair accessories, jewelry, socks, slippers, costumes, you name it Monster High will have it. There’s are 2 series of Monster High books written by Lisi Harrison and Giity Danshvari .




Vampires and Werewolves have taken over the world due to the Twilight series which is aimed towards the older teen, Monster High will fill in the gaps and entertain the younger teens that are just a bit to young for Twilight. Monster High will definitely appeal to them. Monster High Dolls are already  a monstrous hit.




Will Monster High Dolls appeal to you?




Let’s see, there’s nothing on the market like them. They’re unique and different and will appeal to not only kids but adults who love collecting dolls. Horror fans are going to love these dolls. Besides being a little bit freaky they are actually drop dead gorgeous so if you’re into fashion you’re going to love them. Everyone will love Monster High Dolls

Mattel really have outdone themselves with a line of dolls that truly are a breath of fresh air.
