Home: Adventures with Tip and Oh
Home: Adventures with Tip & Oh is an American animated television series produced by DreamWorks Animation and animated by Titmouse, which debuted on July 29, 2016 as a Netflix original series. It was developed by Ryan Crego and Thurop Van Orman, the latter of whom is the creator of Cartoon Network's The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. The series is based on the 2015 film Home, which in turn was based on the 2007 novel The True Meaning of Smekday by Adam Rex. With the exception of Matt Jones, who returned as the voice of Kyle, none of the original cast reprised their roles.
The animated series takes place after the events of the film Home, in the setting of Earth's newly combined human and alien culture. The title characters, a fearless human girl (Tip) and an overenthusiastic alien Boov (Oh), build upon their established friendship and find adventure while navigating the crazily combined world they now share.
The series includes pop songs performed by artist Rachel Crow as Tip.
