Just learned about Frederator‘s Bee and PussyCat show in The Wall Street Journal. It’s a great story about an indie production for YouTube, getting no corporate response yet mobilizing a lot of devoted fans on Kickstarter and now launching on YouTube. This is the first video they published in August 2013 and which got about 10 million views. While cartoons traditionally are produced for 13-year old boys, as Mike Shields writes in the WSJ-article, this production is more girl-oriented, puzzling the male executives of this industry.
Today the series will launch and the fan community is extatic. I guess digital culture experts are observing all this very attentively.
