There’s also meticulous Allan who keeps things in order, mysterious Glep, and the unpredictable billionaire Boss who founded the company.

The quarter-hour animated series is co-created by Michael Cusack (YOLO: Crystal Fantasy) and Zach Hadel (Hellbenders) and animated by Princess Bento Studio.
 
The show’s pilot first debuted on the network in 2020 and surprised viewers during its annual April Fools’ Day stunt. Since then, the pilot has garnered 7 million views on YouTube and is one of the most-watched episodes on AdultSwim.com. Clearly, fans can’t get enough of Pim and Charlie and their relentless journey to put a smile on their clients’ faces.
