| Nothing like the Cartoon!
I grew up watching My Pet Monster (tv series) as my favorite cartoon. I had a My Pet Monster (original, not the later re-release crap), etc. Some how I never heard of the Live action movie until a few days ago (March 2009). I have to admit, I was pretty excited! I found a copy and started to watch it...before long my joy turned to disappointment!

Not only is the story line COMPLETELY different from the cartoon, but the 3 MAIN characters weren't even part of the movie! Instead, it's about a dorky kid who magically turns into Monsie. There's even use of the orange cuffs...but SURPRISE! They do NOTHING! Furthermore, in the cartoon, I'm sure we all remember that Monster was, at most, waist high...yet, somehow he's almost as tall as the grown ups in the movie!

Monsie's personality was nothing like it was in the movie either! Where's the fun loving, crazy monster we loved? And, still, again...why is he turning into a kid and back...he turned into A STUFFED DOLL in the cartoon! There's no Monster World, no Beaster... how did they get away with releasing this CRAP!?

I'm not one to hate classics, but My Pet Monster wouldn't even eat THIS garbage!
