THE MONSTER SQUAD
Cat caught in a tree? Rats overrunning your village? Sounds like a job for the Junior Monster Scouts!
Wolfy, Franky, and Vampyra - the children of the classic monsters - are Junior Monster Scouts. And even though "monster" is their middle name, these funny friends just want to help anybody in need, earn their Junior Monster Scout merit badges, and make friends. But their good deeds are ALWAYS foiled by Baron Von Grump, a cranky schemer who doesn’t like noise, doesn’t like kids, and most of all, doesn’t like the Junior Monster Scouts.
Can Wolfy, Franky, and Vampyra save the cats, the rats, and the day?
CRASH! BANG! BOO!
It’s The Village’s 150th birthday celebration! And that means bright lights, popcorn machines, a marching band, and a musical merry-go-round. But not if Baron Von Grump can help it! If he shuts off The Village’s electricity, there won’t be any noise or merriment.
Meanwhile, in Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory, Igor Jr. was specifically told not to touch anything, especially “that lever.” But Igor Jr. didn’t listen, and now the lab is a clunking, clanking, crackling mess of gears, electricity, and lightning. Can Vamprya, Franky, and Wolfy—the Junior Monster Scouts—fix Igor’s mess and save The Village party? Or has the Baron ruined the fun for everyone?
IT’S RAINING BATS AND FROGS!
It’s a rainy day in The Village and rain means puddles. Lots of puddles to splash in and lots of rain to sing in. Singing and splashing is loud. And loud is something Baron Von Grump simply cannot stand. But Baron Von Grump has a plan. If he can get rid of the rain clouds, he’ll get rid of the rain and all the noise! But the Barons plan backfires and now it’s raining and pouring, with no end in sight!
Meanwhile, Laguna, a little swampling is learning how to swim. Only she’s pretty scared of the water! Can Laguna and the Junior Monster Scouts learn how to overcome fears and save the town from overflowing?
MONSTER OF DISGUISE
A carnival has come to The Village, complete with a fun house! But what the villagers don’t know is that Baron Von Grump is behind it! If the villagers won’t be silent on their own, he’ll hypnotize them and finally get the peace and quiet he needs! When Junior Monster Scouts Vampyra, Wolfy, and Franky go to the carnival with their new friend George, the Invisible Boy, they can tell not everything is fun and games. Everyone is under some kind of spell! Can the little monsters beat Baron Von Grump’s mesmerizing fun house mirror and free the villagers?
