This show is about three twelve year old kids charged with saving their town from alien invasions helped by an alien girl named Cathy Smith. With her grandfather, they reform a renegade alien hunter club that was founded centuries ago called the Monster Buster Club, often abbreviated to MBC. This age-old club was disbanded when it was believed that aliens had wiped them out. Since then, new alien troublemakers have turned up, and the time has come for the prophecy to be fulfilled. Using a network of secret tunnels running through the town, the MBC heroes conduct undercover alien investigations, seeking out the eccentric-looking bad guys with a knack for alien tricks. As of June 19, 2008 only ten episodes were aired on Jetix Europe. New episodes started on July 14 on Jetix Europe.

As for Disney Channel Asia, new episodes started on July 18, 2008. Despite the title, aliens technically are not monsters.
The show takes place in a small calm town named Single Town. The town seems to be situated in a rocky region since several mountains can be seen in the background. Single Town is two hundred years old and was founded by an alien named Addison Single. The statue in the middle of the town is actually the real Addison Single. Although Single Town looks like an ordinary suburb, it is a meeting place for aliens from different parts of the galaxy. After many episodes, it is revealed that not only aliens want to take over Single Town. Evil human betrayers who have allied themselves with aliens try to help claim Singletown to become the perfect place for aliens. Even in the future and grown up, the team will continute their duties as Monster Buster Club (MBC).
It is the first Zodiak Kids television series to be directed by Jean-Louis Vandestoc.
In one of the concept art of the series back in 2006 when it was still in production, the character designs were slightly different. Cathy had lighter blue eyes and rarely has freckles on her face, and there were only 3 members, which meant that Sam didn't exist back then.
Most of the episodes of the show was produced in India. It is animated with Maya 3D.
