Reception[edit]

Laura Beck of Jezebel called Bee and PuppyCat "adorable and hilarious," and Meredith Woemer of io9 wrote, "This might be the first cartoon webseries we didn't want to end."[10][11] The two-part short led to a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for a full season; the campaign was successfully funded, raising $872,133 in November 2013 to go toward producing nine original new episodes of the series.[12]

Robert Lloyd of the Los Angeles Times wrote that Manly was "psychedelic and melancholy," and Susana Polo of The Mary Sue called the short "weird and awesome."[3][13]
