Robot and Mon­ster

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Fri­day, 4pm, Nick­elodeon If we’re go­ing to talk about pro­grams for emo­tional 12-year-olds, let’s look at some­thing ac­tu­ally de­signed for kids. I found Robot and Mon­ster strangely lib­er­at­ing. Though it has a cast of me­chan­i­cals and or­gan­ics, ab­so­lutely ev­ery­one loves ba­con. In this luridly colour­ful chil­dren’s uni­verse, there is no need to ex­plain how ro­bots di­gest the stuff. They just do. The heart of the pro­gram is the solid friend­ship be­tween or­ganic Mon­ster and his best pal Robot. The happy pair might in­spire a great sci-fi writer of the fu­ture.
