Based on the quirky designs of Noah Z. Jones (Creator of Fish Hooks), the series features an ensemble cast of underwear-clad animals, set in a beachfront hotel named the Banana Cabana, home to mayhem, destruction and all around fun! Our cast is led by Howie, the fun-loving, hospitality-challenged canine manager, with the attention span of an 11-year old in a video arcade.
The series was produced by Brown Bag Films Toronto (formerly 9 Story’s animation studio), for YTV and premiered on the network in 2011. Most recently, the show launched on the new Amazon Channel for fans of all ages, Toonscape, in October 2017.
