What do you get when you combine slobbering monsters and devilish creatures who are hell-bent on causing a ruckus, with the Emmy-award winning Canadian television production company, eggplant tv? You get a twisted blast of inspired hilarity delivered with classic animation and scored with a scary good soundtrack cartoon. All that comes together to create Monster in a Box. This series for kids aged seven to twelve is filled with wildly unexpected twists and turns designed to entertain both children and adult audiences. The show and online games will be making way to Teletoon across Canada this Spring 2014.
I had the opportunity to drop by the studio where the show was made and have some fun putting down some voiceovers on an episode (where I play the monster) and talking with the creators about these out-there, silly and fun for all ages TV shorts.

Monster in a Box, produced, scored and animated by eggplant tv (Terry Tompkins, Dave Conlon and Steve D’Angelo) which is part of the eggplant collective family and directed and written by Brian Smith of Just One Pig Productions (with a big assist from his three daughters), which is now running on Teletoon. The show is made up of 26-episodes, each about a minute in length, and each featuring its own unique monster (zombies, vampires, Bigfoot, ghosts, giant squid, demonic babies), all delivered in a box. When each box is opened, anything goes! And, despite their smelliness, destructive behaviour and complete lack of table manners, viewers of all ages are sure to fall in love with this line-up of troublemakers.
Moster in a Box can be seen on Teletoon, and the Monster in Box games can be played on Teletoon online and are also available in the apps stores for Apple and Android.
