Henry Hugglemonster is an American/Irish/British animated preschool show produced by Spiffy Pictures. It is based on the book I’m a Happy Hugglewug created and illustrated by Niamh Sharkey.[2] It first premiered on April 15, 2013 on Disney Junior with a pilot episode that aired on April 5.

Premise[edit]

The series revolves around the daily life of Henry Hugglemonster and his slightly chaotic but loving family, living in the suburban town of Roarsville. Everyone in Roarsville is a friendly, fun-loving monster.

Sometimes, Henry's experiences with his family, including loving Momma, silly Daddo, smart Cobby and diva Summer, as well as his many friends, lead to problems. So, Henry must use his problem-solving skills to try and find a way to solve the problems and conflicts he is presented with in his daily life. Every episode features one or more original songs, as well.

The show can be beneficial to young children as it does not only encourage children to think creatively and build problem-solving skills, but it can also help children overcome any fears of monsters that they have.
