Pinky Malinky is an upcoming British-American animated web television series created by Chris Garbutt and Rikke Asbjoern for Nickelodeon and Netflix, based on Garbutt's animated short of the same name produced by Cartoon Network Studios Europe, which was released in 2009. In 2015, it was greenlit by Nickelodeon for a pickup of 20 episodes,[1][2] and is currently in production at Nickelodeon. It was originally set to premiere on Nickelodeon in 2016, but subsequently delayed to 2017 and then 2018. It chronicles the adventures of Pinky Malinky (voiced by Lucas Grabeel), a 12 year old Middle School student who also happens to be an anthropomorphic hot dog, and his efforts to climb up the social ladder with his two human friends, Babs Buttman (Diamond White) and JJ Jameson (Nathan Kress).

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.[3] Weeks later, the company's See What's Next Twitter account announced an August 17 release date.[4]
