After the March 23, Saturday telecast of the hit Monsters vs. Aliens CG feature, Nickelodeon will be debuting a special preview of a new CG animated series based on the property at 9:30 PM ET/PT.
The new Monsters vs. Aliens series is a co-production with DreamWorks Animation and will focus on the further adventures of the 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 special is titled “Welcome to Area Fifty-Something,” and will follow the protagonists as they are stationed at Area Fifty-Something in order to protect the planet. However, their plans are interrupted when a lone alien, Coverton, arrives and imprisons the president while making a permanent home on the base.
