Monsters vs. Aliens Launches this Saturday
This Saturday, April 6 at 11:30 am ET/PT, Nickelodeon will be finally launching their newest CG animated series, Monsters vs. Aliens, which is based on the hit CG movie of the same name. The series is a co-production with DreamWorks Animation, and will follow the further adventures of the movie’s beloved monsters – – B.O.B. (Eric Edelstein, Hotel for Dogs), the gelatinous blob without a brain; Link (Diedrich Bader, Office Space), the prehistoric fish-man; Dr. Cockroach (Chris O’Dowd, Bridesmaids), the half-man/half-insect mad scientist; and Susan (aka Ginormica) (Riki Lindhome, Gilmore Girls), the incredible growing woman-as they learn to adapt to a new world and work side by side with a bizarre group of aliens.
The half-hour premiere of the series is titled “Welcome to Area Fifty-Something,” and focuses on the protagonists as they are stationed in Area Fifty-Something in order to protect the planet, which is all well and good until a lone alien named Coverton arrives and imprisons the President while making a permanent home on base.
