This is a cute kids' show about different types of
characters, including a talking hot dog in middle school. In the first episode, it's announced
that a favorite snack is no longer being sold. I laughed out loud a few times,
so it's more clever than your average kids' show. Kids should love it, though.
Join Pinky Malinky and his best friends, Babs and JJ, as
they make movies, drop sick beats, and explore their
hometown of Sackenhack.
Pinky Malinky is an
web television series created by Chris Garbutt and Rikke
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
hot dog, and his efforts to climb up the social ladder
with his two human friends, Babs Byuteman (Diamond
White) and JJ Jameson (Nathan
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.
