Princess Sparkly Butt and the Hot Dog Kid

Brandon Lane

Based on a hit musical from The Toronto Fringe 2015, Princess Sparkly Butt and The Hot Dog Kid is an epic and absurd musical space quest about a tradition-defying Princess who discovers that she can control time with her butt. She must use her butt powers for good, not evil, if she hopes to save her planet from totally exploding. Enter Prince Doofmuncher (who comes to realize he identifies, not as a boy, but as a hot dog) to tag along on the mission with hopes of also locating an elusive warlock named Gary who specializes in turning people into hot dogs. The show will make its debut online as eight 5-minute episodes as well as air as a one-hour special on Teletoon.
