Premise

The series follows the semi-awesome lifes of Pookie, Chrome, Kris and Bagel in their strange town of Cityville. Shine, who is the arch-enemy of the gang, tries to destroy the gang with his various plans, but always ends up failing, usually due to a robot he built in his childhood, ROBOT-THING

Characters

Main Characters

  • Pookie - Pookie is a 12-year-old red-and-yellow cat with somewhat large ears. He usually sees the good side of things, but when angry, he becomes a dark orange demon who destroys the town.  He is voiced by BaconMahBoi.
  • ChromeChrome is a 14-year-old robot. He sleeps in the same bunk bed as Pookie. He has laser beams in his eyes. He is voiced by TheChromePerson.
  • BagelBagel is a 12-year-old bagel who is very calm and adventurous, but is kind of a coward and isn't very strong. He is voiced by IAmBagel.

Main Villians 

  • Shine- The main antagonist. He is a 25-year-old fireball with arms and legs who is always trying to destroy the gang, but his plans always backfire and he fails, as usual. He is voiced by Jonny Lee Miller.
  • ROBOT-THING- ROBOT-THING is a crude robot who Shine built when he was 3. He looks very creepy. He is usually the reason why Shine's plans backfire. He is voiced by BaconMahBoi.
  • KrazyKrazy is a hero, though in this series, he is a villain. This is because he has a rivalry against Pookie and would do anything to get revenge, however it is unknown what caused this rivalry. He is calm to the other heroes, being a good friend of Bagel. He also is known to spit green blood at his enemies.

Development

Before the creator even had the idea to create the series, the character Shine was created and roughly sketched in August 1997. BaconMahBoi really liked his drawing, so he decided to make a cartoon using Shine and other characters he sketched (Pookie, Chrome, Bagel, Krazy, and ROBOT-THING). The first episode, "Pookie Checks In", was animated in January 1998. The episode was put up on a website for a few months, and after recieving many positive reviews from the website users, Nickelodeon watched the episode and approved of it. The episode aired in November 2001, and was watched by 247,000 viewers. Due to the popularity, the series was born.

Theme Song

The theme song is titled "Pookie and Not These Guys Focus on Me". It is sung by BaconMahBoi and was composed by Lester Barnes.

  • If you wanna peek into our world
  • Then sit tight, strap in

  • Pookie: Go away, Bagel, it's me time.
  • Pookie's Awesome Cartoon Thing!
