Featuring voice talents Jaden Betts (Doc McStuffins) as Stinky and Jacob Guenther (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) as Dirty, The Stinky & Dirty Show is directed by David McCamley (Peter Rabbit) and produced by Gillian Higgins (Doc McStuffins). The series is written and developed by Guy Toubes (The Adventures of Chuck & Friends, Littlest Pet Shop, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi) and animated by Ireland’s Brown Bag Films (Peter Rabbit, Octonauts, Doc McStuffins). Celebrity voice talent includes Whoopi Goldberg, Jane Lynch, Andy Richter, Joan Cusack and Wallace Shawn, and the series also features original music from acclaimed folk singer and songwriter Dan Bern.
