Introducing the Monster High series.

“Monster High” is the new animated series to check out, and it’s sure to be a hit with kids and parents alike. The premise of the series is pretty simple: high school students who are also monsters attend school together. But what makes this series so special is the non-binary character, the incredible queer voice cast that brings these characters to life, as well as the beautiful animation and production values. So, should you watch “Monster High”? That’s up to you, but I think it’s worth a try!

Welcome To “Monster High”

Clawdeen Wolf, Draculaura, Frankie Stein, and Deuce Gorgon.

Nickelodeon and Mattel have partnered to create a 26-episode animated series called “Monster High” based on the popular toy franchise of the same name and echoing the movie of the same name released earlier this month.

The series follows four iconic characters from the franchise, namely Clawdeen Wolf, Draculaura, Frankie Stein, who is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns, and Deuce Gorgon.

The series will focus on the school and personal lives of the characters at the eponymous Monster High, a school for monsters.

While the series will undoubtedly be full of excitement and adventure, it will also offer viewers the opportunity to watch the characters discover who they are. They will learn to accept their differences as monsters and grow up to be the fierce and fearless beasts they are meant to be.

The characters are all richly developed and lovable in their own ways, and it will be a joy to watch them navigate their way through life at Monster High.
