A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

Intends to entertain rather than to educate.

Positive Messages

Brief format doesn't allow for any kind of story development, but music videos show monsters extending kindness, other visible reminders of their friendships. Song lyrics emphasize the prominent social themes for which the series is known, including cooperation, encouragement, embracing new experiences.

 

Positive Role Models & Representations

These pint-size monsters are much like preschoolers: They're curious, energetic, always learning about themselves and the world around them. Even in these shorts, their actions encourage responsible behavior, friendly peer relationships.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Super Monsters Monster Party is a collection of music videos starring the characters from Super Monsters. The episodes are very brief, running about two minutes apiece, and don't present a storyline of any kind. As such, it's more enjoyable if you know the characters and their personalities ahead of time. Each song and accompanying video reinforces themes that stand out in the series, including kindness, cooperation, and helping others. Kids who haven't watched the show likely will want to after enjoying these engaging songs and characters.

What's the story?

SUPER MONSTERS MONSTER PARTY is a series of music videos featuring the characters from Super Monsters. Each episode plays one two-minute song while clips from the series show Katya (voiced by Andrea Libman), Drac (Vincent Tong), Lobo (Alessandro Juliani), Zoe (Nicole Anthony), Cleo (Elyse Maloway), and Frankie (Erin Matthews) interacting with each other in ways that reinforce the songs' themes about cooperation, helpfulness, and kindness.

Is it any good?

These shorts are fun to watch, primarily if you are familiar with the preschool series and its colorful cast of characters. As in the show itself, messages about responsible behavior both personally and in relationships with peers and adults are easy to identify. At any given time, you can expect that the monster tots will be seen helping each other overcome challenges, managing feelings, and solving problems.

If this is a first introduction to the Super Monsters for your kids, it's a safe bet that they will want to watch the show afterward. The curious characters are an innocuous introduction to the monster species in general, and their personalities reflect the diversity of their human preschooler counterparts.
