Production begins on new animated series Nerds and Monsters for YTV

Vancouver-based animation studio Slap Happy Cartoons Inc. has secured a commission from Corus Entertainment’s YTV for the production of their animated series (40 x 11 min) Nerds and Monsters.

Created by Slap Happy Cartoons, Nerds and Monsters is a comedy aimed at 6-11 year olds that tosses a group of nerdy kids on a fantastic uncharted island.

The tween castaways must use nothing but their smarts to survive the relentless attacks by the island’s inhabitants – a tribe of hideous monsters that are mistakenly threatened by their human invaders. Lucky for the nerds, these dim-witted monsters don’t have any smarts!

“We’re thrilled to start production on Nerds and Monsters,” said Kathy Rocchio, Co- creator and Partner at Slap Happy Cartoons. “YTV is the perfect home for these unique and entertaining characters and we look forward to watching Nerds and Monsters strike a comedic chord with kids all around the world.”
