Irish Animation: Amazon picks up Brown Bag Films’ The Stinky & Dirty Show

Great news for the Irish animation industry as Amazon has picked up Brown Bag Films The Stinky & Dirty Show for a full series.

The animated show is aimed at preschool-age children, and is based on the “I Stink!” book series by Kate and Jim McMullan. The show follows the adventures and mishaps faced by two best friends — and unlikely heroes — Stinky the garbage truck and Dirty the backhoe loader.

The Dublin based studio’s series is one of five pilots that have been picked up by Amazon to become part of their Amazon Prime Instant VOD streaming service. The other four shows are Mad Dogs, The Man in the High Castle, The New Yorker Presents, and a second children’s show called Just Add Magic.

The series will be made available to streaming customers from later this year.
