Henry Hugglemonster

I think it is safe to say we are well know for being Disney mad in our family. I was brought up with a love for all things Disney, and we are bringing up Chester and Millie with that same Disney love. As you know, we are going to Walt Disney World in November, it will not only Chester and Millie's first trip on a plane but it will also be their first trip to the World.

Recently we were told of a new show coming to Disney Junior called Henry Hugglemonster, we were also invited to the launch but sadly we could not make it. I have however been emailed some information about Henry Hugglemonster and would love to share it with you, as I think it is going to be a big hit with Pre School Children. Chester and Millie have seen a preview episode and they loved it, with Chester asking to watch it again.... and again..... and again!!

Henry Hugglemonster is a family series following the adventures of fun-loving, five-year-old Henry Hugglemonster, the middle child in a happy, madcap close-knit monster family – the Hugglemonsters. Each story will transport preschoolers into the world of Henry Hugglemonster as he guides the young audience through the ups and downs of being part of a loving, bustling monster family.

Spice Girl Geri Halliwell is to join Brian Blessed and Brenda Blethyn, OBE, as the star voice cast in Henry Hugglemonster.and Brenda Blethyn, OBE, as the star voice cast in its new preschool series Henry Hugglemonster. The British pop singer, designer and author is to voice Isabella Roarsome, a spirited and popular monster popstar who will be seen by viewers both sides of the Atlantic in the new animation for Disney Junior. Henry Hugglemonster is the latest series to be developed by Disney’s London production hub and produced by twice Oscar-nominated animation studio, Brown Bag Films in Dublin.

The Irish production house is also behind Disney Junior’s recent hit, Doc McStuffins. Which happens to be Chester and Millie's favorite show at the moment, I spend a vast majority of my time trying to find and purchase a big book of boo boos for Chester!!!

Geri Halliwell's character Isabella Roarsome is never seen without her gold tutu and matching bling in the show’s fictional town Roarsville.

Brenda Blethyn, OBE, has been cast in the role of Ernestine Enormomonster, who is married to Eduardo Enormomonster, voiced by Brian Blessed. Eduardo and Ernestine Enormomonster’s daughter, Estelle, is best friends with Henry Hugglemonster, and together the Enormomonsters are always happy to lend an enormous hand whenever someone in Roarsville needs some help.

The 48 x 11 minute series (and two 30-minute seasonal specials) is developed from a series of books created by Ireland’s Children’s Laureate Niamh Sharkey called I’m a Happy Hugglewug and published by Walker Books. The illustration style of the books is retained in the series’ animation.

Henry Hugglemonster is set to premiere on Disney Junior on the 8th February 2013, but if you can not wait that long here is a little teaser clip...


As I mentioned before, Chester and Millie have been watching the preview episode that has been showing on Disney Junior and they are already fans! I can see it being just as popular as Doc McStuffins in our house, I even enjoyed watching it!
