Trivia

Unlike the majority of animated productions, the three principal voice cast members (Charlie Adler, Christine Cavanaugh, and David Eccles) recorded their lines together in the same studio. In a Nickelodeon interview, they claimed that this greatly helped their characterizations, as it allowed them to play off of each other more smoothly. See more »

Goofs

In one episode, a clone of Ickis graffitis a wall to read "The Gromble Eatz Fresh Produce" with the last "e" written backwards. However, when Ickis later has to clean the graffiti, the wall says "The Gromble Eatz Fresh Fruit." See more »

Quotes

Security Guard: Hey! No running in the mall! Darn dogs.

Crazy Credits

During the opening credits, the Gromble says something different from every episode, one of his lines was "you make me sick". After the credits and the Nickelodeon logo is shown, a character from that episode says a line. See more »

This Show Rocked!!
29 October 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was actually one the better shows to come out before Nickelodeon began it's decent into idiocy. It's about three monsters: Ickis, a monster that is often mistaken for a rabbit; Oblina, the only female monster in the trio who is shaped like a candy cane and often reaches down her throat to pull stuff out of her stomach; and Krumm, a monster who uses his unbearable stench to scare humans. They go to some sort of monster school where they learn to scare humans. They are often the subject of ridicule by their cruel head monster, The Gromble, who has four legs and wears high-heel shoes.

So what the hell happened to this show? I mean why did the dumb-asses at Nickelodeon take it off the air? Is it because this show is more adult-oriented or did they feel this show may have been too scary for 7-year old kids? I think it was the first reason. I think they took it off the air because they felt the show was more directed towards older kids, which for some reason, I think, in their opinion is bad. So that's why I think they keep making these idiotic shows because they're targeting younger ages which is why they piss me and a whole lot of other people off so much now. Besides, no one under the age of ten actually watched this show anyway. So they should have left it on the air for the older kids to watch. Nickelodeon has really lost it. These stupid shows they're producing now are getting worse and worse with every new cartoon they decide to air.

Please come back Monsters!!! 10/10
