Brian, a boy about 13, has monster problems. Brian is played by Fred Savage who had a popular TV show--"The Wonder Years". Brian not only dreams about monsters under his bed, but actually discovers them. He befriends Maurice played by Howie Mandell. Maurice as a monster proves to be more mischievous than evil. In one scene the monster pulls down Fred's jeans leading him in his underwear in front of a girl monster. Maurice lives in the "under the bed world" where he takes Brian. He teaches him the secrets of the little monsters and they have a variety of adventure. Brian at first enjoys the advebtures in the vast subterranean world. Maurice becomes his best friend. Eventually Brian realizes he has to leave the unfder tge bed world and Brian or he will become a Little Monster himself. Viewers see tge film differently. Some see it as comic romp or a spoof on monster films. Others see various dark meanings behind the film. Fred as Brian wears contemporary styles. The film itself is rather outlandish. Fred's little brother Ben, about 8 or so also appears. Ben subsequently appears in the very popular 1990s TV show--"Boy Meets World". He has the same charming smile that he has in the TV show.
