Plot Synopsis

PINKY MALINKY is a quarter-hour animated series that centers on Pinky Malinky, a 12-year-old middle-school student, who sees the bright side of everything, including being born a hot dog. With his human BFFs Babs Buttman and JJ Jameson in tow, this little wiener takes a bite out of life. By always reaching for the stars, Pinky pushes himself further than anyone could imagine and proves that being a "wiener" is only one letter away from being a "winner." Netflix scheduled the series premiere for Friday, August 17, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, but the streaming service did not release the series. More than four months later, Netflix released the 28-episode first season of PINKY MALINKY on New Year's Day 2019 (Tuesday, January 1) at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT.

PINKY MALINKY returned with 15 new episodes on Netflix on Monday, April 22, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT. Pinky Malinky is on a roll! Catch up on this joyful hot dog boy's continuing adventures as he spreads fun and positivity with best friends Babs and JJ. In the season opener, "Money," Pinky, Babs and JJ go on a spending spree after finding a $100 bill on the ground -- without stopping to consider the consequences.
Netflix released an additional 15 new episodes of PINKY MALINKY on Wednesday, July 17, 2019 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT. Pinky Malinky isn't the type of hot dog boy who sits around on his buns, and with his BFFs Babs and JJ, he's learning how to relish the little things. In the season opener, "Change," Pinky's unhappy when his favorite stop sign gets a high-tech replacement, so he sets out to save all the things he loves in Sackenhack.
