Spring is Blooming at Disney Junior

Spring is a little late this year around here and like many we’re eager for warmer weather, trees budding and blooming flowers.  Mother nature may not have sprung spring on us yet but Disney Junior is blooming with new television programming and a new commercial free series premiering.  Many mornings this past winter Baby Girl and I have spent time together snuggling while watching her favourite Disney Junior shows.  When she heard Henry HuggleMonster was coming to Disney Junior the mini-monster in her wanted to come out to play.

Henry is a typical five-year-old middle child who lives in Roarsville. He loves his family, enjoys playing outside with his friends and says exactly what he thinks the moment it pops into his head. He’s just the sort of high-energy kid who might live right down the street or even in your own home. Except, of course, for one small detail; Henry is a monster! Each 22-minute episode of Henry Hugglemonster features two 11-minute stories that take preschoolers and their parents on Henry’s adventures as the young monster plays with his friends and tries his best to get along with his three siblings.

We’re super-excited about this new series! And to top it off, Henry Hugglemonster is produced by Oscar®-nominated animation studio Brown Bag Films (also responsible for Doc McStuffins).


The series premieres Sunday April 21st, at 12:30pm ET, with new episodes Sundays at 12:30pm ET only on the Disney Junior Channel.


We celebrated the news of the series premiere of Henry HuggleMonster on Sunday, April 21st at 12:30 ET with a few Henry HuggleMonster printable crafts and a lunch theme fit for a mini-monster. Monster themed sandwiches, apple slices and cookies were on the menu:

Premiering on Sunday April 21st at 12:00pm ET (right before the premiere of the Henry Hugglemonster series), there will be a special 30 minute episode of Quest for the Crystal Mickey. 


Plunderin’ Pete has snatched the legendary Crystal Mickey statue from the Clubhouse! Worse yet, without the magic of the Crystal Mickey, the Clubhouse starts to sink into the ground, never to be seen again!  We have to get that statue back! A nail-biting, high-stakes adventure like this requires an extraordinary hero to lead the way, namely, Kansas City Mickey! With K.C. Mickey in charge, and the help of us at home, not even Plunderin’ Pete’s trickiest traps can keep us from recovering the Crystal Mickey and getting it back just in time to save our beloved Clubhouse.
