Ladies and gentlemen, Heppy Hour is coming to Youtube! You might be asking: “Hold on, is this some sort of typo, what’s Heppy Hour?” As a part of Heppy TV, Heppy Hour is an all-new web series hailing from, all the way from across the pond and beyond, Germany. The titular character of Heppy is a time-traveler from way back, the swinging 60s to be exact, who has now come crashing into the year 2011– hopefully adding a little flavor to the millennial culture.
Here is the official synopsis for the new anthology series:
“After mysteriously travelling in time, the young man “Heppy” finds himself in the year 2011. Without his former life, any clue about his situation and a new time era to live in, Heppy has to rise up and find his new place in the modern world.”
Heppy has been described as a Twilight Zone-esque program that mixes a variety of genres through various short stories. The series was shot live action and later animated in 2D and 3D renderings- think Richard Linklater’s Waking Life and A Scanner Darkly– combining many other art forms like stop motion animation.
Heppy Hour will hit Youtube the month of October with three episodes for its inaugural first season. Please be aware that the web series will be in German with English subtitles.Furthermore, Heppy Hour is a multimedia experience so hop on over to their YouTube Channel and check out their music video that goes along with the webseries.
Also on the Youtube Channel, check out the teaser trailer for Heppy Hour. The teaser previews the type of animation it will feature and the quirkiness that will be part of the show. The trailer is titled Wo ist Heppy? which translates in English to, Where is Heppy?
