Pinky Malinki creators, Rikke Asbjoern and Chris Garbutt bring a new 2D animated interactive special, “We Lost Our Human” which will be available on Netflix by 2022.

Viewers can either choose to experience the story as Pud, a self-involved cat, or Ham, a loving, hyperactive dog who both wake up one day and discover that their human, as well as ALL humans, have vanished from Earth! In desperation to find their owner, both homebound pets go on an adventure to try and save the world with the help of the audience.

The 2D interactive special stars Ben Schwartz as Pud and Ayo Edebiri as Ham and includes Adrienne C. Moore, Lauren Tom, Jon Glaser, Henry Rollins, Lucas Grabeel, and Matty Cardarople. 

Rikke Asbjoern and Chris Garbutt will serve as creators, executive producers, and directors and wrote the screenplay alongside Laura Sreebny and Nick Arciaga

According to Asbjoern and Garbutt, “Creating a huge interactive project has been an exciting challenge and gave us a unique chance to approach Pud and Ham’s story outside of a traditional format. 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!”

We Lost Our Human combines the very best of animation, comedy, and interactivity, expanding the possibilities of how stories are told today. We can’t wait for audiences of all ages to take this hilarious journey with Pud and Ham, because their fate rests in the audience’s hands…literally.” said Curtis Lelash, Netflix Director of Original Animation.
