Almost ten years ago, I enjoyed reading a comic called Little Gloomy by Landry Walker and Eric Jones. It had a bunch of cute little monsters in various scenes and gags, and it was later reinvented as The Super-Scary Monster Show Featuring Little Gloomy.
Now, it’s going to be the cartoon Scary Larry, “about a teen werewolf who forms a rock band with his monster friends”.
Gloomy’s been renamed Victoria, and she’s now explicitly a vampire chick, but old friends Frank, Mummy, and Carl (Cthulhu) are part of the band as well. I’m a bit disappointed that a girl-centered property demotes her to part of the supporting cast for the boy in the animation translation, but not surprised. At their blog post, the creators talk a bit about some of these changes. They also say, “the show has been greelighted for 52 13-minute episodes” — I hope I get a chance to see them. Looks like fun!
