Breakfast Time | The Trap Door | Episode 1, Series 1 | NickRetro

Breakfast Time | The Trap Door | Episode 1, Series 1 | NickRetro

A long necked monster emerges from the Trap Door and eats the breakfast that Berk has prepared for the Thing Upstairs. A big, angry red monster chases Berk, only to be scared off by its own reflection. The yellow creature is then used as a makeshift meal for the Thing Upstairs by Berk.

Somewhere in the dark and nasty regions where nobody goes stands an ancient castle. Deep within this damp and uninviting place lives Berk, overworked servant to the thing upstairs. But that's nothing compared to the horrors that live beneath the trapdoor, for there is always something down there, in the dark, waiting to come out.. be warned: don't you open that Trap Door (you're a fool if you dare!).. stay away from that Trap Door, 'cos there's something down there!

The Trap Door is a claymation-style animated television series, originally shown in the United Kingdom in 1986. The plot revolves around both 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 but also for family entertainment, the show drew much from the genres of horror and dark fantasy. The show has since become a cult favourite and remains one of the most widely recognised kids' shows of the 1980s. Nickelodeon UK aired the series in the late '80s with Pop started rerunning the show in 2010.

Featuring the voices of Willie Rushton as Berk, Boni and The Thing Upstairs and Nick Shipley as Drutt.
