Satuday Morning Special: Bee and PuppyCat on Cartoon Hangover


Many of you may not have recognized Danielle's cosplay from our Miami Hurricon 2014 Cosplay post. For those people this for you, and now an introduction to Bee and PuppyCat by Danielle.

Bee and PuppyCat was created by Natasha Allegri who's previous claim to fame was the gender bending episodes of Adventure time with Fiona and Cake. Cartoon Hangover helped her make the first episode and due to the extreme popularity, decided to crowd source for funds to make a full series. The Kickstarter broke records and raised $872,133, the most funding for a web series ever.

There's something instantly enticing about Bee and PuppyCat. The story is simple, a girl named Bee, broke and unemployed, gets hit in the head by a strange little animal...a cat? Maybe a dog? She quickly learns there is more to this animal than meets the eye.

This show is funny, random, quirky, and also beautifully animated. There is a lot of love here and if you watch it and get it you will find a space for it in your heart. Bee is a well rounded character and fleshed out so well in this first 10 minute episode. PuppyCat is adorable, hilarious, and also mysterious, and he encapsulates his namesakes well.

The show is currently in production and they are completing the first episode and will premiere later in the year. You can check out the preview video here as well as check out the line up for all of Cartoon Hangover's 2014 shows. Subscribe to their channel, they rock socks!
