Slap Happy Cartoons’ Nerds and Monsters gets a development deal

Vancouver-based animation studio Slap Happy Cartoons Inc. has recently announced that their animated project, Nerds and Monsters, has finally received a development deal courtesy of Corus Entertainment’s YTV, in which the 52×11 animated comedy series will be developed and licensed for distribution in Canada (and of course, if permitted – all over the world).

Nerds and Monsters is one of the few shows that are targeted towards 8-12 year old children even though it features Monsters in a plot that seems straight out of a horror film (whereas other animated shows that feature these types of stories tend to be aimed towards slightly older viewers): the show follows the story of a bunch of nerdy high school kids on a fantastic uncharted island who must use their smarts to survive attacks from the island’s inhabitants – a tribe of hideous monsters who felt threatened by the arrival of the human invaders.

“We’re excited to be partnering with YTV on Nerds and Monsters,” said Vito Viscomi, co-creator and Partner at Slap Happy Cartoons. “YTV has a long history of shepherding and developing funny and extremely popular animated series, and we look forward to working with them and making Nerds and Monsters a show that will entertain and resonate with kids of all ages – both in Canada and around the world.”
