Henry Hugglemonster is a preschool animated CG show for Disney Junior. The animation is based on the picture book I'm a Happy Hugglewug published by Walker Books and animated by Brown Bag Films. The intentions were to make each episode as cinematic and as imaginative as possible. The original book has a unique two-dimensional charm and the production design stays true to this within a more three-dimensional approach. A hand painted brushstroke texture was added to both characters and sets to accentuate this. In Huggleween Moon, creative challenges were to invent a whole new world: transforming the Hugglemonster house into a space rocket, creating an alternative ‘monstery’ lunar landscape, and adding graphic and quirky special effects of swirling galaxies and lunar trails.
