Are any of you familiar with the webseries, Bee and Puppycat? If you're not, you should be, and I am now going to take the time to introduce you to it!
Bee and Puppycat is created by Natasha Allegri, storyboard revisionist, character designer, and prop designer for Adventure Time (among other endless accomplishments, including creator of the gender swapped versions of AT characters, Fiona and Cake!), for Cartoon Hangover. The series premiered in July of 2013 and tells the story of Bee and her not exactly a puppy, but not exactly a cat Puppycat as they go on intergalatic temp-jobs to pay the bills and afford lasagnas.
The series is hilarious and amazingly animated. The story is actually incredibly rich and is reminscient for magical girl series like Sailor Moon and Card Captor Sakura (where Allegri drew a ton of inspiration), but it's that unique sense of humour that sets the series apart.
Originally set to be a two episode short, the creators launched a Kickstarter campaign that surpassed it's goal to produce 9 more episodes! Now, starting later this week on November 6th, the Internet can once again be graced with new episodes of Bee and Puppycat!
The adorable Puppycat plush is available from We Love Fine! He talks too when you press his ear, which is amazing because Puppycat is actually voiced by the Vocaloid, Oliver! He's actually my brother's; I ordered it for him as a birthday gift last year! He was not pleased when he found out I borrowed him for the afternoon, haha.
But if I had asked permission, he would have just said no!
As my luck would have it while shooting these photos, my tripod broke. Which derailed basically this entire shoot. One day, I will post cute photos that are taken by someone else. One day!
Until then, I'm going to go to Future Shop tonight to replace said tripod.
As a result, I took to my iSight to snap a few fun pics that I had planned to take with my DSLR. Better than nothing, right? We're kicking it old school over here at Diana Dresses Up. I think Bee would approve.

We got a letter from Fishbowl Space! Time to report for tempwork! Will we be babysitting Wallace again?
We settled in for some coffee and lectures from Puppycat on how to be an adult.
I drank the rest of my coffee.
Then we shared some Oreos.
