Check out this trailer for a french series based off the books Chien Pourri (Stinky Dog) produced by the same studio that brought us Ernest & Celestine and he Big Bad Fox & Other Tales. Hopefully a English translated version will eventually show up at some point.
Stinky Dog and his friend Flatcat are a couple of misfits who live in a trash can. Our ordered and narrow-minded society regards them as nobodies, as down-and-outs, invisible. Stinky dog feels no hatred towards those who reject him. He likes living in his trash can, surrounded by his friends. It’s his natural habitat and he aspires to nothing else. He wants to find love and tries to go on vacation, like everyone else. But because he acts a little too fast and isn’t the world’s greatest thinker, his quests are always complicated and only accentuate his eccentricity. On the surface, Stinky dog’s adventures are crazy and touching, but deep down, like Diogenes, our hero is questioning society. He’s searching for an “honest man” (or at least a dog). During his wild and hairy pursuits, he sends hypocrites ying and knocks thieves for six… even if it’s usually only through clumsiness.
