Follow Pinky and his best friendios, Babs and JJ on Instagram for more sneak-peeks of Nick's brand-new Nicktoon at @pinky_malinky, @babs_buttman and @JJ_James0n, respectively, plus follow the Pinky Malinky production team on Tumblr (@pinkymalinky-crew) and Instagram (@pinkymalinkycrew)
Pinky Malinky follows the everyday life of Pinky Malinky, an infectiously positive hotdog living in a human world who, along with his two best friends, navigate school and life with a unique perspective.
Using the tropes of a mockumentary and reality show format, Pinky and his friends will talk directly to the camera and the audience to share their absurd and silly take on real life. At times, all children feel like they don't fit in and Pinky's undeniably unique point of view as a literal wiener amongst humans will allow kids to laugh at his familiar struggles and enjoy his unusual perspective on the challenges of being a school-aged kid. By always reaching for the stars, Pinky pushes himself further than anyone could imagine, and proves that being a "wiener" is only one letter away from being a "WINNER!" Pinky and his friends' humorous experiences will also be shared across social media and Nickelodeon's digital platforms.
Co-created and co-executive produced by Chris Garbutt and Rikke Asbjoern (The Amazing World of Gumball) and executive produced by Scott Kreamer (Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness), the trio are a part of the Artist Collective, an internal diverse group of experienced creators who mentor and support up-and-coming talent while also collaborating to cultivate, challenge and inspire Nickelodeon's development pipeline.
Pinky Malinky will star Lucas Grabeel (Glenn Martin DDS) as Pinky Malinky, Diamond White (The Haunted Hathaways) as Babs Buttman, and Nathan Kress (iCarly) as JJ Jameson, and is slated to debut on Nickelodeon USA in 2017.
Produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studios in Burbank, Calif., the original animated series will join Nickelodeon's growing roster of content driven by creators discovered all over the world.
