However, you don't have to have seen any of the films it is referencing to enjoy "Monsters vs. Aliens," though that adds another layer of enjoyment for those who have put in the time watching "Attack of the 50 Foot Woman," "The Fly," "The Blob," "Star Trek" and similar classics of the genre.

The military base also is home to B.O.B., an alien blob; Dr. Cockroach, a man with the head of a cockroach; Insectosaurus, a huge grub; and Missing Link, a fish-ape hybrid. General W.R. Monger runs the top-secret home to these assorted monsters.

General Monger is alerted to the deteriorating situation and unleashes his collection of monsters to fight the robot in exchange for their freedom. The monsters manage to defeat the robot at the Golden Gate Bridge.
|Dr. Cockroach is voiced by Hugh Laurie.|
Susan winds up in Gallaxhar's machine which extracts the quantonium from her body, shrinking Susan back down to normal size. Using the extracted quantonium, Gallaxhar begins cloning an army with which to achieve his evil plans of domination.
