Robot & Monster

Nickelodeon’s brand-new CG-animated buddy com­edy, Robot and Mon­ster, pre­mieres on Sat­ur­day, August 4 at 11:00 a.m. (ET/PT). The series 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 life… 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.
