Robot and Monster is an American CGI animated television series created by Dave Pressler, Joshua Sternin and J.R. Ventimilia.[1] Main characters Robot and Monster are voiced by Curtis Armstrong and comedian Harland Williams, respectively.[1] It began production in 2009 and was ordered for a full 26-episode season in 2010, before finally premiering on Nickelodeon on August 4, 2012. The entire series was released on DVD in 2014.[2]

The complete series was made available for streaming as part of Nickelodeon's Noggin app in March 2015.[3]


Working at the Blinking Light Factory is basic for Mechanicals and Organics. Robot and Monster make an odd couple, since Robot is serious and Monster is always goofy, but that does not keep them from being best friends. They do everything together, such as testing gadgets out, dreaming of J.D. and Spitfire, taking care of their pet Marf, avoiding the annoying Ogo or their landlord Mr. Wheelie, and eating tons of bacon.
