The Tex Avery-inspired series allows viewers to replay episodes multiple times to explore and discover unseen sequences; the zaniness commences February 22.

Netflix has released key art and a trailer for their upcoming interactive animated series, Cat Burglar. The edgy, over-the-top, Tex Avery-inspired cartoon comes from the creators of Black Mirror. By answering witty trivia questions, viewers can help Rowdy Cat get one over on Peanut the Security Pup and break into a museum to steal some prized paintings. The show premieres on the streamer February 22.

With an average runtime of 15 minutes, and over an hour and a half of animation to explore, viewers can play Cat Burglar multiple times and unlock previously unseen sequences of Rowdy trying to outsmart Peanut.

Check out the trailer:

Created by Charlie Brooker, the series is executive produced by Brooker, Annabel Jones (Broke and Bones), and Mike Hollingsworth (BoJack Horseman, Tuca & Bertie). Hollingsworth serves as supervising director and co-writer with writer James Bowman. Russell McLean (Bandersnatch) serves as the interactive producer; art direction is by Avner Geller, with music by Christopher Willis.

The show features the voices of James Adomian (Rowdy Cat), Alan Lee (Peanut), and Trevor Devall as the Museum Director. The animation is produced by Boulder Media.
