Characters

  • Mona Parker: Mona is a young girl with a vivid imagination. She believes her hometown is overrun with supernatural monsters and she plans to stop them all and save the town on a daily basis. Her alter ego, Mona the Vampire has a "vampire sense" which tingles every time there is something foul in the air. Together with her two friends Princess Giant and Zapman, they solve some unlikely mysteries. She dislikes cleaning her bedroom and would rather be battling her arch nemesis, Von Kreepsula. Mona has a cat named Fang, who is her trusted sidekick. She has a talent for breaking spells.
  • Charley Bones: Charley is Mona's best friend. An intelligent but scared boy in real life, his alter ego is Zapman, who wears a green costume and is armed with a deadly Zapp-A-Rama Gun (a water pistol in reality). Charley is bullied by George at school, but has stood up to him once or twice. Charley has fallen plague to some of Mona's foes including the Nefarious Computer Virus and a Siren (defeated by Mona, who was cast as Athena in the school production of Odysseus' adventures). Charlie knows a lot about science. His hero is a daredevil known as the Man With Nine Lives, who he saves from being killed thanks to the Menacing Mechanical Gremlins.
  • Lily Duncan: Lily is Mona's second best friend. Before she was a quiet, shy girl who had her hair covering her eyes. She soon became Princess Giant, a braver and stronger version of Lily. Lily once fell in love with a cartoon character.
  • Angela Smith: Angela is Mona's snooty rival in the series. Often, Angela boasts about her wealth to her classmates and often enlists George in her schemes to cause problems for Mona.
  • George Dumol: A School Bully who refers to Mona, Lily and Charley as a "bunch of babies in Halloween costumes" and picks on Charley most of the time but is not that tough when confronted. He is often seen with Angela.
  • Fang: Mona's pet cat and sidekick that she ties fake wings around (probably to make him look like a bat). He follows Mona everywhere and they have only fought several times. Fang has proved to be a worthy ally to Mona as he helped defeat the Phantom Dogcatcher and other villains.
  • Mona's Parents: Mr. and Mrs. Parker are Mona's loving parents. Mrs. Parker is a moral force to be reckoned with, while Mr. Parker is more light-hearted and has an imagination like Mona, and allows her to continue her fantasy life.
  • Principal Shawbly: The stern Principal of St. Faith's elementary.
  • Madeleine Gotto: Mona's teacher. She has a habit of falling in love easily.
  • Mrs Bryerson: Mona's Eldery neighbour. Has a Poodle named Blitzy.
  • Officer Halcroft: The chief of local police.
  • Belinda: Mona's babysitter.
  • Lawrence: One of Mona's Classmates.
  • Mayor Rosenbaum: The town's bumbling Mayor.
  • Von Kreepsula: Mona's arch-nemesis. He is actually only a comic character who has supposedly had a duel with Mona, who sealed him into the comic book. He appeared twice in the show, once in the second episode when Charlie accidentally left his comic book prison in the rain and left the ink running, thus freeing him (although he was "defeated and sealed" by Mona again). The second is in episode twenty-six, when Mona's little cousin took a bite off the book and freeing him again.
  • Robin: A new boy in Mona's school who has a nose shaped like a bird's beak and known as "bird boy". He can control birds to attack people.

Writing

The writing of each episode remains fairly consistent. Something odd happens in the real world, and Mona puts a supernatural explanation to it. This would most likely be very repetitive, if not for the originality and creativity of the storyline.


The layout of the programme tends to start with an insight of what happened in real life. Then an 'imagination scene' with the children explains the storyline further, and then it switches back to real life to explain even further. This pattern continues, until the story comes to a climax, which is nearly always an 'imagination scene'. Then the denouement is often a real life scene, explaining what happened in reality throughout the episode. Denouement, in literature, is the end part of a story after the climax. ...


Trivia

  • In one episode, Charley is seen to have an Arthur plush doll in his toybox. Arthur is another cartoon produced by Cinar (now known as Cookie Jar Entertainment.)
  • Mona also makes a reference to The Simpsons in another episode based on the Greek epic poem The Odyssey, when her teacher Miss Gotto asks her if she knows who the Greek poet Homer is. Mona simply answers this by saying "Isn't he that funny father from that cartoon show?", confusing Homer the epic author with Homer Simpson, the cartoon character.
  • In One episode, Mona makes a reference to Scarborough Fair by quoting the first line while using spices to stop a monster.
  • A reference to the Frank Zappa song "Don't Eat The Yellow Snow" can be heard in one episode when a character says "Great googely moogely" which is a lyric from the song.
  • In one episode of the mona lisa, the lady was called Lisa but Charley calls out to Mona and the artist thinks of the name, The Mona Lisa.
