Esme & Roy is an animated children's television series created by Dustin Ferrer and Amy Steinberg. The series is produced by Toronto-based animation studio Nelvana and Sesame Street creator Sesame Workshop, in association with Corus Entertainment.[2]

The show follows a little girl named Esme and her best friend, a monster named Roy, who take care of all kinds of creatures when their regular guardians need aid. Esme & Roy was broadcast simultaneously on HBO in the United States and Treehouse TV in Canada on August 18, 2018.[3][4][5]

Plot

Esme & Roy follows a young girl named Esme and her best monster friend, Roy, the most in-demand "monster sitters" in Monsterdale, a town populated mostly by monsters. The duo set out to solve big problems by playing and helping out the young monsters with their problems.[1]

Characters

Main

  • Esme (voiced by Millie Davis) is a monster sitter, and has a knack for inventing activities to fix the monsters' problems, with the help of the MonsterCase, a suitcase full of fun and games that encourages the monsters to play their troubles away.
  • Roy (voiced by Patrick McKenna) is Esme's best friend and a yellow monster. He is a lovable goofball who knows everything about monsters.
  • Dumpling is Esme and Roy's monster pet. She rolls herself up into a ball and loves to boogie.
  • Hugo Ooga (voiced by Shayle Simons) is a theatrical 4-year-old[6] little monster. He loves to be the star of the show and creates his own spotlight by clapping his hands.
  • Fig Ooga (voiced by Elle Simons) is Hugo's 1-year-old[7] baby sister. While small, she has super strength and loves to pick up Roy to demonstrate it. She shrinks if she smells a Sludgeflower.
  • Tillie Plink (voiced by Abigail Oliver) is an active 3-year-old[8] little monster with pink fur, red eyes, and red hair tied into twin tails with a pair of blue bows. She has a need for speed and loves cars and playing rough-and-tumble games.
  • Snugs Muzzywump is an adorable 3-year-old[9] or 8-year-old[8] monster who loves to hug and snuggle with people. He puffs up when he gets scared, but is easily calmable. He is frightened by thunder.
  • Simon Swoozle (voiced by Jacob Soley) is an eight-year-old[10] six-tentacled green monster with blonde hair, brown eyes and glasses. He loves enforcing routine and order. While a bit uptight, he has a big heart and is very artistic.

Recurring

  • Mr. Plink (voiced by Zachary Bennett) is Tillie's father.
  • Grammy Swoozle (voiced by Jayne Eastwood) is Simon's grandmother
  • Willie (voiced by Richard Binsley) is Simon and Grammy Swoozle's pet.
  • Mrs. Muzzywump is Snugs' mother.
  • Mr. Bleederblop is the father of Frank and Franny.

  • Frank Bleederblop & Franny Bleederblop (voiced by Lily Bartlam) appear in "Two Can Play That Game"
  • Sid & Lucy (voiced by Christian Corrao)
  • Lottie is introduced in "Monster's Little Helper" when she wants to learn to be a Monster Sitter from Esme and Roy. She has yellow fur and flies with wings. She returns in "Game Plan" to help monsters prepare for Camp Monsterdale.
