Curious and quizzical, Terrabella is a little monster who likes big questions. She was born and raised in the small town of Muckbend, where she attends Blargh's Academy for Tiny Students (go Fighting Bats!). She is the only daughter of Hairrison and Grrrace Smoot, makers of famous Smoot's Ick.
Fun Fact: In Italian, "terra" means "earth" and
"bella" means "beautiful." I thought it would be
funny if her named meant "beautiful dirt. "I also liked that
it sounded like the word "terrible." I originally wanted to
call her "Scareabella" but my Lovely Wife Terry thought "Terrabella"
was better (and she was right, it is a much better name).
