The Trap Door

The Trap Door is a British animated television series, originally shown in the United Kingdom in 1984. The plot revolves around the daily lives and the misadventures of a group of monsters living in a castle. Although the emphasis was on humour and the show was marketed as a children's programme, it drew much from horror and dark fantasy. The show has since become a cult favourite and remains one of the most widely recognised family entertainment shows of the 1980s. Digital children's channel Pop started rerunning the show in 2010. Both seasons are currently available on iTunes and Prime Video.
