‘Nerds and Monsters’ Season Two Premieres Saturday January 9

Abstract: Animated series from Vancouver-based animation studio Slap Happy Cartoons set to air on Corus Entertainment’s YTV.

VANCOUVER -- Vancouver-based animation studio Slap Happy Cartoons Inc. has announced the premiere of the second season of their animated series Nerds and Monsters on Corus Entertainment’s YTV, debuting Saturday, January 9 at 10:00 a.m. ET/PT.

The animated comedy, aimed at 6-11 year olds, 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 hilarious and 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 excited to present the second season of Nerds and Monsters,” said Greg Sullivan, Co-creator and Partner at Slap Happy Cartoons. “Both the nerds and monsters end up in crazy and ridiculous situations this season, and we can’t wait for kids to tune into the madness."

“This season of Nerds and Monsters is full of weird and wonderful surprises,” commented Jamie Piekarz, Director of Content, Corus Kids. “So keep your eyes open, starting with Saturday’s premiere on YTV’s The Zone Weekend.”

Beginning January 16, the series will air in its regular timeslot, Saturdays at 8:00 a.m. ET/PT on YTV.

Nerds and Monsters is distributed by 9 Story Media Group, and produced with the financial participation of the Shaw Rocket Fund.
