Now for all of you hep cats, you know and agree with me that Bee and PuppyCat is pretty much the best thing ever. And, like me, you’ve probably been searching YouTube every couple of weeks, wondering if there’s going to be another part. Well, now there’s a Kickstarter! Woo!
“Bee and PuppyCat” is a very popular original cartoon created by Natasha Allegri. In it, Bee, an out-of-work twenty-something, has a life-changing collision with a mysterious creature she names PuppyCat (“A cat?… or maybe a dog?”). Between space and time, Bee and PuppyCat take on an intergalactic babysitting gig to pay another month’s rent. Now, you can help Bee write a happy ending for PuppyCat’s tale of betrayal, intrigue, and magical sparkle transformations.”
This show is absolutely hilarious, and it’s made by the people over at Cartoon Hangover (the same people that do Bravest Warriors). One cool thing about the show, besides being weird and awesome, is that it’s made by a woman about a woman. Yeah!
So far, the Bee and PuppyCat videos have gotten over 4 million views, and the creators say they’ve received tons of mail asking for more. Their Kickstarter goal is to produce at least six more episodes. More money = more episodes. And more episodes = a better world (yes, you can quote me on that).
If you back the Kickstarter, you’ll get early access to the videos, and a ton of other cool stuff. I went in at the $35 level, though I wish I could have given even more! But alas, I’m not made of money. Here’s a peek at the first few rewards:
