In exchange for her company, PuppyCat arranges for Bee to be transported to another dimension where she sees TempBot, a huge sentient television screen with the power to assign the weird and wonderful jobs that allow her to pay the bills.

With TempBot acting as a generator of cosmic textures, the adventures of Bee and PuppyCat can literally sweep through time and space. It casts an ongoing mystery into PuppyCat’s backstory and their will, they won’t have a relationship between Bee and her friend chef Deckard, and the conditions for success will arise.

His television work was more varied, including a recurring role in the front Doctor who starring Karen Gillan in the short-lived ABC sitcom Selfie and appearances alongside Kristen Bell in The good place.

His co-star – if “co-star” is the right term – is a Vocaloid named Oliver. Using a software program for voice work is anything but of rigor on YouTube and TikTok channels at high volume these days, but a little less usual for a TV series. The move works, however, as Oliver’s appropriately modified tones create an otherworldly sounding PuppyCat – the cat (perhaps) that smells like a dog.

Deckard’s part, meanwhile, is voiced by Kent Osborne, whose animated credits include Kung Fu Panda And Monsters versus aliensand who has written for other animated projects like SpongeBob SquarePants, Phineas and Ferband Cartoon Network The fantastic world of chewing gum.
