Happy Monster Band!


Howdy peoples! So the show I recently worked on at Titmouse has premiered on Playhouse Disney so I thought I'd post ya a link. Check it out! It was a very small group of us on it so I was able to do animation as well as some of the storyboards and backgrounds. Watch "I Will Be Your Friend" if ya have a moment; it's my personal fave. :) Oh and you can even rate the performances like american idol. Fun for preschool children everywhere! .....and me.

Wilson and Luke love it! Wilson has watched 5 songs I think. We also printed out many pics to color. Luke has done a marvelous job on one and we're planning to mail it to you! Way to go!

Allison...

I just tried emailing you...but it got bounced back. I have a question...can you email me?

Bonnie said...

My daughter's love it! Are the actual band members from an existing band or did you assemble various artists for the vocals?

The band is a real band out of Michigan- Tally Hall. Check them out: www.tallyhall.com. They are on tour now. Have seen them live several times. They were just signed by Atlantic Records. Tally Hall has some great stuff out there... they are not a children's band per say - but my daughter is 5 and adores their music. It's safe for kids ears.

Hey, I am 32 years old and I LOVE THE HAPPY MONSTER BAND! The songs are really fun to sing along to. In fact I would like to purchase a CD so we can sing along on road trips. My 2 year old dances non stop when they are on TV, in fact she comes running if she hears a song start. Are you going to release a CD soon?

Don Carter said...

Thanks for all the positive feedback. Great work on the animation, Allison.

The characters and concept were created by yours truly. For more of my work go to...

This is my daughter's favorite show, now. She drops everything the minute she hears it start. Her 3rd birthday is this Friday, and for her birthday we decided to put the Happy Monster Band on her cake. She is so excited about it, she can hardly contain herself. Keep up the good work!

Allison said...

Hey! Thanks for the compliments from all of you! It was really fun to work on and I hope they pick it up for more episodes.

msm health: ya know, i'm not sure if they're going to release a cd, but they totally should! Or at least maybe some downloadable ones. :)

And Don Carter! Thanks for the comment! I took a look at your page and love your work. 'Specially the canary. Your designs for the show were perfect for animation!

And everyone else-thanks for makin me smile! I'm glad you guys are enjoying it.

My daughter is 2 years old and loves the songs. Everytime it comes on she runs to the TV and starts to sing and dance. It so cute. I would love if these songs could be placed on CD some time soon as well.
Keep up the good work Allison

Amy said...

Not only do my kids love Happy Monster Band, I'm singing "I Will be Your Friend" all the time now. Loves it! :)

Jackie said...

Is a CD available? If not, will one be available for Christmas?

Erika said...

Oh man - my almost-2 son LOVES "Hap mah bah!" He asks for them over and over and over. We've got 5 clips saved on dvr and he makes me play them over and over and over. He grabs his little guitar and jams along with them.

They're awesome!

Allison said...

Thanks again you guys. I still haven't heard a thing about a cd being released, but I probably wouldn't hear the news anyway. That stuff's probably all up to Disney Channel! I'll post here about it if I find out anything though.

f said...

A Happy Monster Band DVD would be even better! My recently turned 3 year old loves them too!

Bryan said...

Yes, you should pass along the info to whoever and let them know that a CD/DVD would sell. Even more than my kids loving it, I'd play it too, and I don't normally say that about kids music.

Mommy Rinners said...

My girls and I love Happy Monster Band! We would love to be able to buy a CD or be able to download songs. Let us know when this will be possible.

Thanks!

Proud Mommy said...

I would love to buy the DVD to play in the car. Every morning my 16 month old and I dance around the living room to their songs. I have now DVRed them until we get the DVD or CD --- I would buy both --- so we can dance around all day :) Happy Monster Band ROCKS!

Heather said...

My 19 month old daughter is NUTS for the Happy Monster Band! She walks around 'clawing left' and 'clawing right' all day . . . or waiving her arm in the air chanting, "Go! Go! Go!" We love their hip music and fun lyrics -- I hope they have a CD available soon!

Chantal said...

Laura said...

Nelson said...

I have 2 kids (4 and 2 years old), both love the HMB, but I think I love them more, hehe! Great work! Keep up the good work!

colem said...

I'm 34, and my daughter is 19 months old.

We love the Happy Monster Band. I like the chores song, and the practice makes progress song the best. I can't stop listening to those...

Thanks for the awesome work..

Crystal said...

We LOVE Happy Monster Band! The best song is "The Monster Tangle" but last season, we loved the Monster Hoe-Down! Keep up the great work!!

Kevin Davey said...

Allison - Is there going to be a Season 3 to Happy Monster Band?

Allison said...

Hey Kevin! Ya know, I haven't heard anything about a season 3. But I do hope so!

Vivek said...

My little daughter loves 'Happy Monster Band' It wud be great if songs are downloadable.

Kelly said...

Hi!! My daughter just turned 1 and she absolutely loves Happy Monster Band--every time they come on she stops and starts dancing :) It would be fantastic if they brought out a cd, or even better, a DVD!! Thanks a bunch!

Stacy said...

My little boy is turning one in December and he absolutely loves the HMB. We have all the episodes Tivo'd and he watches them daily. I can't find party stuff or toys or music online for his birthday party. How did you get the image on a cake? I was told by Publix that they won't do copyrighted images. Please email me any suggestions.

Stacy

Allison said...

Hey Stacy!
Sorry i won't be much help about the cake. I'm not sure where you could go to get one made. They're simple shapes though, if you're up to the challenge of drawing them on top yourself! As far as toys go, i've only come across one plush that was going on ebay a couple months ago. It had a disney store tag, but seemed to be the only one of its kinda. I wish there were more marketed items for the show too! But happy bday to your son!

We love Happy Monster Band, my daughter is in awe of them. I would love it if they made an album. I see that you said they are a band called Tally Hall. I will download them. =) thanks! Let me know when H M B comes out with an album though, I'd play it for my daughter any time. =)
