Slap Happy Cartoons Starts Production on Nerds and Monsters

Vancouver-based animation studio Slap Happy Cartoons Inc. has just secured a commission from Corus Entertainment’s YTV for the production of their animated series Nerds and Monsters (40 x 11)

Nerd and Monsters is a refreshing new comedy targeted towards 6 to 11 year olds, which centers on a group of nerdy kids on a fantastic uncharted island. The castaways have nothing to rely on but their smarts when it comes to surviving the relentless attacks by the island’s mishappen habitants, who are actually just being threatened by the human invaders. Fortunately for the nerds, the monsters of the island aren’t exactly the sharpest tools in the shed.

“We’re thrilled to start production on Nerds and Monsters,” said Kathy Rocchio, Co-creator and Partner at Slap Happy Cartoons. “YTV is the perfect home for these unique and entertaining characters and we look forward to watching Nerds and Monsters strike a comedic chord with kids all around the world.”
