Trouble continues as he begins to be and blamed for strange happenings in his home.

Maurice is the monster responsible for the strange happenings in Brian's house. Though he seems to be there simply to scare Brian and his brother, he soon realizes that he and Brian have much in common. They become fast friends and eventually make their way to the Monster World, which to Brian's delight turns out to be a place where kids can play games and eat junk food all day. Maurice and Brian's friendship runs them afoul of Snik, Maurice's nemesis, and Snik's boss/ruler of the underworld, "Boy."
