The Poop on ‘Poopeez’

We won’t argue with toy company Basic Fun, which says its new cartoon series Poopeez is full of “potty puns and jokes that absolutely stink.”

The show features the “adventures” of six scatological characters (above) in a place called Kerplopolis. Episodes are…pardon us…dropping every Tuesday on YouTube, Facebook and poopeez.com. Here’s yesterday’s premiere:

“The mass popularity of the poop emoji [below] has affirmed that people think number two is cool,” explained Hugh Kennedy, senior vice president of marketing at Basic Fun. “Globally, potty humor has moved into the cultural mainstream and Poopeez takes that one step further creating a whole world around poop and pee.” 

Basic Fun plans to introduce a line of Poopeez character toys, but not in time for poop-themed Christmas gift-giving. Arriving in January, the toys will be sold in “blind capsules” resembling toilet paper rolls.
