Henry Hugglemonster, the new preschool animated series which has been developed and produced by Irish company Brown Bag Films, will debut on Disney Junior this Friday, February 8, at 5:50pm.

Developed from Irish author Niamh Sharkey's series of books I'm a Happy Hugglewug, Henry Hugglemonster follows the adventures of Henry, "the middle child in a happy, madcap close-knit monster family".

Among the series' vocal talents are Brian Blessed, Brenda Blethyn and Geri Halliwell.
