Monica Pink 
TV series outline

Monica Pink Pet Shrink is a children’s comedy

series that looks at the intricacies of human

and animal behaviour as seen through the eyes

of two oddball 9 year old kids. Monica Pink and

her best friend William Strange are really good

at investigating and analysing pet behaviour

but they can find human behaviour perplexing.

The series uses humour and pet problems

to teach children some basic psychological

concepts which will equip them with coping

strategies for the expected and unexpected

events in their lives.

Each episode will feature a pet with

problems and the pet’s psychological issues

will be reflected in the stories of the people in

Monica’s world. Denial, Fear, Repressed Anger,

Dominance and Confidence Issues are just

some of the subjects covered in this children’s

comedy series.
