* BaconAddiction: Bacon appears to be the only food robots and monsters eat in this universe. And don't even get into how automatons eat bacon.

The show had [[NetworkRedHeadedStepchild little network support]]. Reruns of the show no longer air whatsoever. Nick stopped airing new episodes by January 2013, leaving 3 episodes and a half-hour series finale unaired. (Since December 2013, the episodes were slowly burned-off on Nicktoons, though its 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 warmup act for the 2012 TMNT reboot, which was created by the same people.

* 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.

How to Do Everything with Garrick and Marvin is another series created by Dave Pressler that premired a month after Monster Hit aired. (Though Garrick and Marvin is actually a Web-Series instead of a TV Series like Robot and Monster was)

* DevelopmentHell: Production of the series took almost 3 years to finish, only for it to get a shaky under promoted start and then either cancelled or tossed back into development.
** Season 2 is either this or has been scrapped.
