First Look: Disney Junior's Henry Hugglemonster


He flies, people.

Yep. With his wings.

And, he’s a monster in the best possible sense of the word.

Henry Hugglemonster is the name of a brand new, animated Disney Junior series that follows the adventures of spirited, five-year-old Henry, the title character, and middle child in a family of fun-loving monsters.

Based on the book series “I’m a Happy Hugglewug” by Niamh Sharkey, each 22-minute episode features two stories that take kids through the ups and downs of being part of a loving yet bustling monster family.

Pretty sure my two will relate if my pre-morning coffee parenting skills are any indicator of mom-as-monster tendencies.

Produced by two-time Academy Award nominee Brown Bag Films – the production company behind Doc McStuffins – the series is directed by Emmy Award-winning director Norton Virgien (Rugrats, Doc McStuffins), with lead writer Sascha Paladino (Wonder Pets, Ni-Hao Kai-Lan) and producer Gillian Higgins (Doc McStuffins, Octonauts) on board.

The series won’t premiere in the U.S. until April, but if you happen to be a lucky duck living across the pond, tune in to the premiere episode airing on Feb. 8 in the U.K.
