Bee and PuppyCat is an animated web series created by Natasha Allegri, and directed by Larry Leichliter. The show is produced by Frederator Studios. The pilot for the show aired in July 2013, and the show began in early 2014. A second season, titled "Lazy in Space" was announced for a launch in 2022 on Netflix.

Plot

The show revolves around Bee, an unemployed woman in her 20’s, and PuppyCat, a mysterious creature that resembles both a cat and a puppy. Together, they go on a series of temporary jobs to help pay their monthly rent.

Why It Rocks

  1. Bee and PuppyCat are funny and likeable protagonists.
  2. Some funny moments here and there, like the line “Ya took too long... now ya candy’s gone. That’s what happened. BUGOW!”.
  3. Smooth and cutesy animation.
  4. Good voice acting, which kinda shockingly includes a computer program, being Oliver.
  5. Some sad moments, such as a scene where a character named Cardamon desperately tries to get his mother out of a coma.
  6. Interesting episode ideas (such as an episode where Bee and PuppyCat visit a planet full of cats).
  7. The background music is very calming and nice to listen to.
  8. Takes some elements from Adventure Time (which Natasha Allegri previously worked on), Studio Ghibli and Steven Universe, and reuses them in a good way.

Bad Qualities

  1. The animation in the actual show isn’t as good as the animation in the pilot. However, it will hopefully improve in Season 2.
  2. The plot is kind of weak, depending on your view.
  3. Bee’s personality changed a lot from the pilot. In the pilot she is a lot more mature, while in the actual show she is really immature, like in the episode "Beach", where she refuses to go in the water. That, though, is because Bee is revealed to be a cyborg in the episode "Donut".
  4. There are many plot holes that have yet to be solved, like how Cardamon's mother was in a coma, etc.

Reception

Bee and PuppyCat recieved positive reviews. Robert Lloyd of The L.A. Times rated it as one of the best shows of 2014.

Trivia

  • The show was crowdfunded on Kickstarter. Said Kickstarter raised over its $600,000 goal, making it not only the most successful animation Kickstarter, but the 4th film/video Kickstarter, and the #1 Kickstarter based off of a YouTube video.
  • Season 2, which gained its own name being "Lazy in Space", is confirmed to be released exclusively on Netflix as an original series.
