All the imaginary creatures a young person could want to make apartment life more pleasant.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Mildly amusing at first. It's really about the different kinds of people who need different sorts of help, of course.

Con: It gets dull fast. There is no story and no characters.
