Production History Edit
Monster Allergy was created for Disney Italy. Centomo and Artibani approached Barbucci and Canepa to collaborate in the creation of Monster Allergy.
Previously Artibani had worked on W.I.T.C.H. with Barbucci and Canepa. Barbucci and Canepa created W.I.T.C.H. but never obtained the copyright.This lead to a vicious court battle over creator's rights over the series with Disney. Disney was so determined to cover up the true creators of W.I.T.C.H. they had hired people to act as the creators of W.I.T.C.H. on tours. Needless to say Barbucci and Canepa lost the court case.
Monster Allergy was spared this treatment as the creators bought the copyright before Disney could. Disney bought the rights and they were returned in 2007
