The show was based on a pilot that creators Chris Garbutt and Rikke Asbjoern pitched to Cartoon Network Development Studios Europe (who would eventually produce the show about that blue cat) and follows the adventures of a weenie named Pinky Malinky, and his human pals Babs Buttman and JJ Jameson. Pinky's goal is to become more like a winner and less like a wiener.
