Blaze and the Monster Machines is a vibrant children’s show based in a parallel world, mostly occupied by sentient monster trucks, animals, and people alike. The show focuses on a bright red monster truck named Blaze and his best friend slash driver, AJ.
In each episode, Blaze and the monster machines characters help teach your little one using STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), often encouraging your little one to engage with the show. Blaze usually teams up with their different friends, going on adventures, competing in races, or helping each other with different challenges. This is done through multiple choice questions, “yes/no” answers, or repeating phrases.

Meet the Blaze and the Monster Machines Characters:
Blaze is the lead character, a kind-hearted red monster truck with his flame emblem on his side. The emblem stands for his main superpower, his Blazing Speed, which allows him to go at super speeds; Blaze also has the power to transform a part of his body into different tools suited for different jobs or situations. Even though Blaze has many friends, his best friend and driver is 8 years old, AJ. Together they help Axel City, making many more friends along the way.
As far as trucks go, you could say that Stripes is Blaze’s best truck. Stripes was the first truck to be introduced to Blaze and AJ; he is known to be hyperactive and always down for an adventure. Even though Stripes is a monster truck, he closely resembles a tiger with his stripes and white bumper and forms the base of his powers. He has a strong sense of smell as well as claws that pop out of his tires to help him when he needs to climb on something, like getting into his treehouse in the jungle outside the city.
The second truck Blaze and AJ meet is a young cowgirl monster truck by the name of Starla. With her thick southern accent and lasso skills, she is known to be hardworking, spunky, and always wanting to help her friends. Starla owns a farm just outside the city, where she taught Blaze how to use a lasso, a skill that has helped him and his friends many times throughout the show. Darrington soon joins the group.
Darrington loves attention and doing daring tricks; he’s the daredevil of the group. To keep up with this theme, Darrington is painted white, with deep blue linings on his side on his hood; these linings have small white stars, and his roof resembles that of a daredevil helmet. Darrington may be good at tricks and stunts, and he can also be quite clumsy.
Later in the show, the crew meets up with an interesting character, Zeg, a half-monster truck and half-triceratops. He has a funky, strong, and quirky personality and normally refers to himself in the third person; Zeg is Blaze and AJ’s prehistoric bestie.
Watts and Gabby are the second driver and truck team to team up in the show. Watt’s power is electricity-based; her main power is Electric Charge, the ability to power up any machine without needing to plug it in. This pairs perfectly with her driver Gabby, a 9-year-old mechanic who runs a garage in Axle City. Gabby is the only other human that forms part of Blaze’s close friend circle throughout the show. Gabby is gusty, brave, and hard-working; she always carries her toolbox and knows which tool to fix any problem.
Every show needs an antagonist, and this role falls to the monster truck Crusher and his sidekick, Pickle. Despite his quirks, Crusher is not purely evil; he’s just a Monster truck who likes to cheat and set traps if it means he’ll win the race. Pickle is his cheerful sidekick, who sees Crusher as his best friend. He stands out from the other trucks as he is slightly shorter than most, but he lacks height he makes up for by having a big heart. Pickle tries to be Crusher’s Jiminy Cricket by being the voice of Crusher’s conscience.
