Bee and PuppyCat, the charming animated web series created by Natasha Allegri and produced by Frederator Studios, will be coming to YouTube in October. This comes following the June announcement that new episodes under the title Bee and PuppyCat: Lazy in Space are in production.
While the first four episodes of Bee and PuppyCat are available already on Frederator Digital’s YouTube channel Cartoon Hangover, many do not realize that the following six episodes are currently only available on streaming platform VRV.
The web series began as a short two-part episode in 2013, which quickly gained popularity online. After the success of this initial video, Frederator launched a Kickstarter campaign to produce the full web-series. At the time, it was the most successful animation Kickstarter in history. The first four episodes of Bee and PuppyCat aired on YouTube in late 2014. The next six were originally supposed to follow suit, but ended up being released two years later on digital aggregation platform VRV. Because of this gap, some didn’t even realize new episodes were made.
Bee and PuppyCat follows the adventures of cheerful Bee, who tries to keep her positive attitude despite her failed jobs and lack of direction, and the strange creature she finds who is a hybrid of a puppy and a cat and talks in mysterious chiming noises. PuppyCat brings Bee along on temporary jobs in space; Bee brings PuppyCat around her small town, introducing him to her friends. There’s mystery surrounding both their pasts and current conflicts as they navigate both the alternate space dimensions and their more mundane, but still challenging Earth lives.
The first of the six VRV episodes will air on Oct. 5, with each following one airing in the subsequent weeks. Bee and PuppyCat: Lazy in Space is set to premiere in 2019, but it’s unclear if it will be available on both platforms.
