A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Regardless of winning or losing, the players are heroes for trying to save Earth from space monsters through competition and sacrifice. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

Girls and boys are equally competitive and treated the same. Master Mayhem isn't always a positive mentor and likes to insult the Monster Superstars. 

Violence & Scariness

Obstacle courses include people getting hit, falling, and face-planting on matted floors. Animated monsters destroy buildings, etc., using different weapons. Final duel includes smashing fake buildings on one another. No one gets hurt. 

Sexy Stuff
Language

Bathroom humor, mild insults, teasing. 

Consumerism

During a commercial break, contestants answer viewer questions as a way of promoting the show. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Massive Monster Mayhem is a kid game show that revolves around fighting (fake) monsters by completing various challenges. It's got some fantasy violence, ranging from computer-animated monsters destroying a city to contestants dueling each other and destroying cardboard buildings. No one gets hurt, but kids may be compelled to emulate these events at home. There's also some bathroom humor, and the monsters are often subjected to mild insults by their evil warlord.

Cheap Cash Grab, that should be out of it’s misery

Personally, this show is garbage... It’s cheap writing and lazy components make Nickelodeon ashamed of themselves for letting this air on NickToons. The only th... Continue reading

It's like a Canadian version of Power Rangers.

This show is really funny. It feels like a mix of the shows on Nicksports and the Saban Brands live-action shows. I feel like this show would be better if it wa... Continue reading

What's the story?

MASSIVE MONSTER MAYHEM is a game show where kid contestants vye for the chance to save the Earth from space monsters. Each episode, which is hosted by Graham Conway and Devon Deshaun, features three kids competing against each other in futuristic obstacle courses (aka The Megalator) in hopes of making it to the final round. The winner advances to The Mashdown, chooses a fight suit, and must fight one of evil Master Mayhem's (Thomas Lorber) Monster Superstars. Whoever collects enough Power Pods to shoot the monster back into space in the allotted amount of time is declared the champion. If the Monster Superstar wins, the human player must sacrifice him- or herself in the Chamber of Doom to save the world from destruction.

Is it any good?

This energetic series mixes live action and green screen technology to create a unique but ultimately chaotic game show. The hosts' banter, and the conversations between Master Mayhem and the Monster Superstars (which sometimes includes fart jokes) will amuse some kids, and no matter who wins, the final contestant is still a hero. 

It's all in good fun, and no one gets hurt. But the human vs. monster rounds sometimes resemble crazy wrestling matches, which younger kids may want to emulate. The insults hurled at the Monsters by their warlord are very mild (like calling one a loser) but aren't particularly nice, either. Overall, Massive Monster Mayhem may appeal to kids who like action-driven challenges, gaming-type characters, and lots of chaos. But it's not particularly smart, and there's not a lot to be learned from it. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the challenges of mixing CGI with live action in Massive Monster Mayhem. How is this done? Is it difficult to do? Does this make a program or movie more fun to watch?

  • What kind of impact can violence in the media have on those who watch, even if it isn't real or no one gets hurt?
