Bee and PuppycatEdit
Bee & Puppycat is a Cartoon Hangover series featured on YouTube. In the series Oliver is mostly speaking gibberish in the episodes. However, he randomly spurts out swear words such as "fuck" and "shit", as well as on occasion other things such as "laugh hohoho". He is also heard saying "Poo poo" in the Bee and Puppycat episode "Farmer" and "Pretty Patrick" in "Beach Cats".This series is also acknowledged for being the first two videos to reach 1 million views using OLIVER's voice, as well as 1 million views using a PowerFX VOCALOID. Unlike all other cases of English VOCALOIDs being used, however, this is the only case where the VOCALOID was a co-starring vocal as all other English VOCALOIDs were only used as singers in soundtrack related elements.
The project is by Natasha Allegri, notably recognized as the character designer and storyboard artist for popular cartoon series "Adventure Time". The series became an immediate hit on YouTube and received much praise. It was the first major usage of the English VOCALOID OLIVER. Part 1 was published on YouTube. Once available for viewing, it received 1 million views within several weeks. Part 2 was eventually made viewable to the public and later went on to receive 1 million views as well.
According to Natasha, when she originally pitched the story board to Eric Homan of Frederator Studios, he rejected it. However, she later received a call in the middle of the night from Holman who told her that the decision had been changed and that Frederator would like to make it into a short. The story was inspired by Sailor Moon, the early 90's animation look in general, and another anime series called "Super Book". The use of a VOCALOID was Natasha's own idea, though she did not get to use OLIVER's vocal directly.
