Butch Hartman Teases New Nickelodeon Series ‘Bunsen Is A Beast’

Nickelodeon is adding a new kid to their family and he’s much different from the others — he’s a beast!

Later this evening, the network will premiere its newest animated series Bunsen Is A Beastwhich was created by Butch Hartman. Did you know Hartman is also the mastermind behind The Fairly Odd Parents, Danny Phantom, and T.U.F.F. Puppy?

Bunsen is a Beast tells the story of Bunsen and Mikey, two new friends who embark on endless fun and adventures in their town of Muckledunk. As the first beast ever to attend a middle school for human kids, Bunsen feels the pressure to succeed and prove to the world that monsters can live among humans…and they won’t eat everyone for lunch. With help from Mikey, Bunsen will learn how to accomplish human world tasks, like, doing homework, eating ice cream, and riding the bus.  In turn, Mikey will learn to navigate the Beast World and meet all the weird and wonderful beasts that reside there.


Celeb Secrets had the opportunity to visit the new Nickelodeon complex in Burbank (read about the grand opening here) to talk to Butch Hartman about his latest project. In the interview, the creator talked about the inspiration behind each character, Bunsen and Mikey’s friendship, and what we can expect from the duo the rest of the season — check out the full video below for more!

Bunsen Is A Beast airs tonight, February 21st @ 5:30PM ET/PT on Nickelodeon. New episodes will air the rest of the week at 5:30 and will move to its official time slot on Saturdays @ 10:30AM ET/PT.
