NICKELODEON PREMIERES BRAND-NEW ANIMATED SERIES ROBOT & MONSTER SATURDAY, AUGUST 4, AT 11:00 AM (ET/PT)
Nickelodeon’s brand-new CG-animated buddy comedy, Robot & Monster, premieres on Saturday, August 4 at 11:00 a.m. (ET/PT) and follows the friendship and adventures of the most unlikely best-friend duo, Robot, a mechanical and self-proclaimed genius, and Monster, a happy-go-lucky organic. These pals live in a strange world where robots and monsters, also known as mechanicals and organics, live side-by-side and everybody is united by a love for bacon. Together, the relentlessly ambitious Robot and pathologically content Monster form an unlikely friendship. Forged in the fires of childhood, they are now inseparable as they try to find their way in the world.
In the premiere episode, “Monster’s Great Escape,” Monster is shocked to discover that Robot had played a practical joke on him during their youth. So, Monster decides to get even by pulling an elaborate prank on Robot. However, practical jokes don’t come naturally to Monster and the joke he pulls ends up being on himself. Next in “Game Boys,” Monster helps Robot achieve his life-long dream of playing in a Pole-O game, a combination between rugby and caber tossing. This could very well be the highlight of Robot’s lifeâ€¦ assuming he survives.
Robot & Monster is written by Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia, real life best friends and comedy veterans who have written for such hits as Rio, The Simpsons, That 70’s Show and Surviving Christmas. David Pressler created the characters Robot and Monster. He is the artist and character designer who has used sculpture and illustration to fuse two of his primary passions, fine art and entertainment.
