Monster Farm (partially found original English audio of animated series; 1998-1999)
Monster Farm was a short-lived animated series from Saban that aired one season on the Fox Family network (now Freeform) from 1998 to 1999 on a block called "The Basement" (which consisted of this show, Bad Dog, Walter Melon, and Pee-Wee's Playhouse reruns).
Plot[edit | edit source]
The series is about a young man from the city named Jack Haylee and the farm he inherits from his great Uncle Harloff. When he arrives, he finds a bizarre collection of farm animals. Together, this unlikely menagerie must work to help their new owner save their home from the curiosity seekers who threaten their wacky world.
Missing episodes[edit | edit source]
According to the German website fernsehserien.de, there were 52 10-minute episodes produced, which aired until March 31, 2000 on Ki.KA, with reruns until 2006. Only 26 of those episode ever aired in English and Russian, as 13 half-hours.
Availability[edit | edit source]
Due to the obscurity of the show, and the similarity to the Japanese title of the Monster Rancher franchise, finding information about the cartoon is next to impossible. It never had a home video or streaming release. The complete Russian dub (Ферма чудища) is available on DailyMotion, and three Spanish episodes are available on YouTube.
On February 21, 2018, Robbie Rist (who voiced the main character, Jack Haylee) uploaded the episode "Home Office Horrors", which he had videotaped, onto YouTube.
