Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared: Becky & Joe

It’s Nice That favourites Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared created by the fun-filled directors Becky and Joe, will head to Sundance Film Festival next year. The Blinkink creative duo will premier their Youtube-hit series at the largest independent film festival in the US this January 2019.

Salt Lake City’s Sundance Film Festival is known for its celebration of cult dramas highlighting the potentials of independent filmmaking. Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared is an unexpected member of the prestigious roster, known for its lighthearted comedic mix of puppetry, 2D and CG animation and the comedic characters never fail to inject a sense of fun to its two million strong subscribers.

Just the trailer for the 30-minute show’s pilot clocked up five million views in only five days. Produced in-house at Blinkink’s long-form entertainment division known as Blink Industries in London, and voiced by the show’s creators Becky Sloan, Joseph Pelling and Baker Terry, the television series will undoubtedly continue to captivate audiences on an international scale. With its irresistibly lovable storylines and characters, you can see why we cover Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared pretty extensively here at It’s Nice That.
