* BigBad: Gart.

to:

* BigBad: Gart.It was implied that Gart was this, though that title was likely taken by Pendulum Depot in the episode "Family Business". However, he only appeared in that episode due to the show's second season was put out of production. (Stangely, in that same episode, Monster helped Gart express his positive feelings towards Robot, It worked out pretty well.)

The show had [[NetworkRedHeadedStepchild little network support]] and no commercial appeal. Reruns of the show air more often on Nicktoons. Nick stopped airing new episodes by Janurary 2013, leaving 3 episodes and a half-hour series finale unaired. (Since December 2013, the episodes were slowly burned-off on Nicktoons, though it's series finale "Monster Hit" [[SeriesFauxnale somehow aired out-of-order]]) What's worse, is that the network cancelled production on the show's second season, they just wanted to pretend it didn't exist. To be fair, however, the show was essentially presented as a mediocre warm up act for the far more successful 2012 TMNT reboot and the upcoming Harvey Beaks.

That said, was it really that bad of a show? To some viewers, yes, but, as a whole, it really wasn't a badly-made show. It just met with a lot of ExecutiveMeddling and got ScrewedByTheNetwork because it wasn't able to find a wider audience.

Robot is an inventor whose experiments usually fail, often explosively. He is often angry, partly because his experiments often fail and partly because his family, who run the Blinking Lights Factory, find him to be a complete disappointment. Monster is an eternal optimist who always looks at the brighter side of things and is the self-proclaimed "Happiest Guy in the World." The humour often comes from the best friends tackling a problem with their distinct personalities.
