Pinky Malinky is an animated web television series created by Chris Garbutt and Rikke Asbjoern for Nickelodeon and Netflix, based on Garbutt's animated short of the same name produced by Cartoon Network Studios Europe, which was released in 2009. It marks the very first collaboration between Nickelodeon and Netflix. In 2015, the series was greenlit by Nickelodeon for a pickup of 20 episodes. The series was originally set to premiere on Nickelodeon in 2016, but was delayed many times until 2019. It chronicles the adventures of Pinky Malinky (voiced by Lucas Grabeel), a 12-year-old middle school student who also happens to be an anthropomorphic hot dog, and his efforts to climb up the social ladder with his two human friends, Babs Buttman (Diamond White) and JJ Jameson (Nathan Kress).

On June 21, 2018, it was announced that Pinky Malinky would be released exclusively on Netflix, and that the show was renewed for a second season. Weeks later, the company's See What's Next Twitter account announced an August 17 release date, though the series was not released by Netflix on that date, leading to yet another delay of the series.

On September 16, 2018, Chris Garbutt posted on Instagram that there was a slight delay in the release date, and that it was Netflix's responsibility on when to release it. Season 1 was released on Netflix on January 1, 2019.  A 99-second short focusing on the titular character's New Year's resolutions was released on Netflix ahead of the series premiere.

Why It Rocks

  1. Pinky, himself, is a very likable character. He tries to fix problems (though they never go right) and always looks on the positive side. In fact, unlike Atypical, another Netflix original, most of the characters are very likable.
  2. Very fluid animation coming from Chris Garbutt, who was one of people who worked on The Amazing World of Gumball.
  3. Catchy theme song.
  4. Unlike many other Nickelodeon shows (yes, Nickelodeon worked with Netflix on this show) like Sanjay and CraigTTSW and BreadwinnersTTSW, this show doesn't overdo the toilet humor, despite having some.
  5. In Duck, Pinky makes a tribute for duck he used to love who recently passed away and apologized to everyone, which was very heartwarming.
  6. Hilarious and creative jokes, such as the Voice Krispies joke from the episode, Voice.
  7. Tolerable voice acting, even if the characters were yelling.

Bad Qualities

  1. Bland visuals.

Dude, calm the hell down! I just said I didn’t like this show. I didn’t spam anything about anime. (Even though I dislike it personally, and the only anime I like is マッハ GOGOGO.) My point is, just because you like a show way too much, doesn’t mean you have to attack people who hate it.
