Cutting edge animation by Chris Garbutt gets the green light from Netflix

In the wake of the hugely successful Netflix series Pinky Malinky comes a brand-new animation  by  Chris Garbutt and Rikke Asbjoern. We Lost Our Human!, combines the very best in 2D animation, comedy and interactivity, following a cat named Pud and a loving hyperactive dog named Ham. With its psychedelic colour pallet and striking characterisations this is set to reignite the cartoon heyday of the 90’s and generate some brand-new fanatical followers.

Ham (a pooch) and Pud (a cat) are shocked to wake up one day to find their human (and ALL other humans) have completely disappeared from planet Earth. In a bonkers turn of events viewers of this special cutting-edge animation format will be able to move through the show from the perspective of either Ham or Pud with differing story outcomes depending on which character is chosen.

"We got to explore their many parallel and interwoven paths, which resulted in our story room becoming a complex web of post-it notes, push pins and string. Quite a dizzying sight for anyone witnessing one of our story pitches." – Chris Garbutt

We can’t wait to share more of this amazing project with you in the coming weeks.
