Plot Synopsis

Created and executive produced by Butch Hartman, BUNSEN IS A BEAST! is an animated series that follows Bunsen and Mikey, two unlikely friends attending grade school. Bunsen, the world's first beast ambassador, is also the first monster to attend an all-human school, and while he's at Muckledunk Middle School, he shows everyone that beasts and humans are not so different -- with the help of his new human BFF Mikey Munroe. On his first day of school, Bunsen befriends Mikey, who over time guides Bunsen through the ups and downs of life as a human. On the flipside, Bunsen introduces Mikey to the wild and wacky world of monsters which, as it turns out, is a lot more fun than scary. No matter what the stakes, Bunsen and Mikey will always have each other's backs, but their classmate Amanda is always trying to get them in trouble. On Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Monday, January 16, 2017) at 8pm ET/PT, Nickelodeon premiered a sneak-peek episode of this series. In the first story of the sneak preview, "Hide and Go Freak," Bunsen, Mikey, and Amanda (disguised as a beast) play the beast version of hide-and-go-seek in Bunsen's house. Then, in the second story, "Bunsen Screams for Ice Cream," Bunsen's love of ice cream almost gets him expelled when Amanda uses it to lure him out of school. One month later on President's Day (Monday, February 20, 2017) at 5:30pm ET/PT, Nickelodeon debuted a second sneak-peek episode of BUNSEN IS A BEAST! In the first story, "Bunsen Is a Beast!," Bunsen attends his first day of human middle school in hopes of proving that beasts and humans can happily co-exist. Then, in the second story, "Body and the Beast," Bunsen literally loses his head on picture day and Mikey has to help him find it before picture time. BUNSEN IS A BEAST! has its official series premiere on Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at 5:30pm ET/PT on Nickelodeon.
