My Pet Monster

My Pet Monster was a plush doll sold in the 1980s and early 1990s that was one of the few plush dolls marketed at boys at the time. The doll had blue fur, horns, and a fanged smile, and was recognizable by its orange handcuffs. It spawned a short-lived children's cartoon series that ran for one season (19861987) on ABC, produced by Ellipse (France), Nelvana (Canada), and Hi Tops Video in association with Golden Books. It also spawned a film made in the 80's about a boy who becomes the Pet Monster, how a man tries to kidnap him to experiment and how his sister helps her brother out of this crisis.

My Pet Monster (413 words)
My Pet Monster was a huge, mostly blue creature with a big nose, yelow eyes, large fangs, and wore a pair of shackles (so he wouldn't hurt anyone).
In the cartoon, the Monsters came to life every time someone took off the magic shackles, which would allow he and his boy owner to have all sorts of adventures.
Unfortunately these creatures never really caught on as the big 26-inch monster did and they hung on the toy shelves for quite a while and were eventually reduced for clearance.
