Actually watch the show!

The parents' bad reviews of this amazing show on here are both from fans of other titles who have never even watched this gem. When you watch it, you'll realise that it is MUCH better than TUFF Puppy. It teaches lessons involving friendship and the characters are great role models. It's also very funny and clever!

Best Nickelodeon Cartoon

This show is the best Nick has ever done with a cartoon, I believe. Morals and likeable characters abound in a colourful save-for-kids TV show. It was only on for a few months because of new (horrible) shows like "Sanjay and Craig", which I am upset about!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (8 ):
Kids say (22 ):

Opposites truly do attract in this lively, laugh-out-loud CGI series that offers kids a wonderful portrayal of a friendship that triumphs against all odds. Robot and Monster couldn't be less alike, yet somehow their relationship brings out the best in each of them and helps them through the troubles that pop up in their daily lives. Many of the show's laughs are rooted in the main characters' polar-opposite personalities, which cause plenty of mishaps and exacerbate others that befall them, but it's the moments when the two come to a mutual understanding that take the cake for sweetness and make a lasting impression on kids.

Here's even more good news: The assorted cast of supporting characters lets viewers see Robot and Monster deal with issues like bullying and overcoming fears in lighthearted, non-threatening situations, so their messages can reach a range of ages. Of course, that assumes that your kids will pick up on all of the dialogue, which might be tough given that the show's top-notch writing is sure to leave them in stitches while they watch.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
