‘Monsters at Work’ will debut on July 2

Here’s the write-up:

Monsters At Work takes place the day after the Monsters, Incorporated power plant started harvesting the laughter of children to fuel the city of Monstropolis, thanks to Mike and Sulley’s discovery that laughter generates 10 times more energy than screams. It follows the story of Tylor Tuskmon (voice of Ben Feldman), an eager young monster who graduated top of his class at Monsters University and always dreamed of becoming a Scarer… until he lands a job at Monsters, Incorporated, and discovers that scaring is out and laughter is in. The series introduces new monster characters alongside returning favorites, including Mike Wazowski (Disney Legend Billy Crystal) and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan (Disney Legend John Goodman). Starring alongside Feldman as part of the MIFT crew are Henry Winkler as Fritz, the scatterbrained boss; Lucas Neff as Duncan, an opportunistic plumber; and Alanna Ubach as Cutter, the officious rule follower. In addition to Crystal and Goodman, returning cast members from the original movies include John Ratzenberger as Yeti and Tylor’s dad, Bernard; Jennifer Tilly as Celia Mae; and Bob Peterson as Roze, twin sister to his original Monsters, Inc. character, Roz. Voicing additional characters are Stephen Stanton as Smitty and Needleman, the bumbling custodial team at Monsters, Inc., and Aisha Tyler as Tylor’s mom, Millie Tuskmon. Produced by Disney Television Animation, the series was developed and is executive produced by Disney animation veteran Bobs Gannaway.

When an ambitious, buttoned-up U.S. Marshal inherits a big unruly dog, he soon realizes the dog he didn’t want may be the partner he needs. Turner & Hooch stars Josh Peck as Scott Turner, son of Detective Scott Turner portrayed by Tom Hanks in the 1989 film of the same name. The series also stars Carra Patterson as Jessica Baxter, Scott’s brave, street-smart partner; Brandon Jay McLaren as Xavier Wilson, a cool, enigmatic marine-turned-U.S. Marshal; Anthony Ruivivar as Chief James Mendez, Scott’s boss with a secret soft spot for Scott’s new dog, Hooch; Lyndsy Fonseca as Laura Turner, Scott’s sweet, animal-loving sister; Jeremy Maguire as Matthew Garland, Laura’s dog-loving son; and Vanessa Lengies as Erica Mouniere, the quirky head of the U.S. Marshals dog training program. Five French Mastiffs also star as Hooch, Scott’s slobbery, loveable companion. Matt Nix is the creator, executive producer, and writer; and executive producer McG directed the series premiere.

The animated series follows two tiny troublemakers trying to live the good life in a big city park while having giant-sized, sky-high adventures.

In their perpetual pursuit of acorns, these ultimate underdogs are joined by Pluto, Butch, and other iconic Disney characters as they face down bullies great and small.
