Watch the trailer for the Don't Hug Me I'm Scared, the television show

17 September 2018

We love Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared here at It’s Nice That. So much so that we featured the series’ protagonists – Duck, Red Guy and Yellow Guy – on the cover of the SS16 issue of Printed Pages. So it’s needless to say when we saw the announcement the shorts are being turned into a television show, we’ve gotten very excited.

Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared first appeared online in 2011 and has since earned a reputation as a cult web series. Often downright disturbing, and always surreal, the series was created by Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling (Becky & Joe) alongside writer Baker Terry. The final episode was uploaded to YouTube in 2016 and, so far, the six shorts have amassed over 100 million views on the video platform.

The new television show is being produced by Blink Industries, the company that produced the original six episodes alongside Conan O’Brien’s production company Conaco. Alongside this, Super Deluxe will be producing the series.

You can watch a trailer for the new series, below.
