It’s not every day that you see a cartoon with such characteristics of calmness and relaxation. Watching Bee and PuppyCat is much like the experience of going on a carefree mental vacation.
Created by Natasha Allegri and directed by Larry Leichliter, is another interesting, must-see cartoon that is produced by Frederator Studios. It was first introduced to the internet on July 11, 2013, as a five-minute episode. No, none of the main characters is a buzzing insect that makes gives us honey. Instead, Bee is a young girl in her twenties who’s always on the hunt for numerous temp jobs in order to pay rent. One day, she came in contact with a mysterious creature called PuppyCat, and the two have been inseparable ever since.
Some notable episodes include “Food” and “Beach”, as they both have interesting plots and helps highlight some of the characters personalities. Along with the adorable aesthetic, a lot can relate to Bee as a person. Adulthood in your twenties can often be a struggle of finding jobs, paying rent, making sure you have enough to eat, and just having to deal with life’s problems on your own. I’d say that Bee and PuppyCat is the perfect cartoon for Millennials.
“Too bad I can’t make a career out of getting fired, right? I’d be like, a CEO or a manager. Which one’s more impressive? …President?” – Bee
The Bee and PuppyCat series is with no doubt doing great, as it has many admirers behind it, merchandise, and BOOM! Studios released a comic book version of the series in 2014. Some say it belongs on TV but I’d say it’s made a comfortable spot right here on the internet. The first four episodes were released in 2014, followed by the rest released in 2016. It’s reported that production wrapped up in March 2016, and at the moment it’s impossible to say whether there will be anymore episodes of Bee and PuppyCat in the future. I for one, fully supports keeping this show going, as it brings good vibes and has a unique synopsis.
Fun fact: PuppyCat is voiced by a Vocaloid software called Oliver.
