Bee and PuppyCat

YouTube Network Frederator Turns to Kickstarter

The YouTube audience has proven potent when it comes to getting engaged fans to pony up their own cash to fund big projects. While it wasn’t exactly the fan-fueled rebirth of Veronica Mars, YouTube star Freddie Wong and his partners were able to raise over $800,000 earlier this year for the second season of the scripted show Video Game High School. Now another YouTuber is passing the hat on the Web, but not going after the gamer geek demo you might expect. Frederator’s Cartoon Hangover, the YouTube channel headed by animation veteran Fred Seibert, is launching a Kickstarter campaign today for Bee and PuppyCat, a potential female-centric animated series—a rarity in the animation world.
