The series centers around the titular characters Ryan Ferd and Beth Percy living in the former's house as roommates, and going about their lives outside their house either socializing with their neighbors and friends or go around special places in the town of Delmar.


Original concept

Creator Xavier Shaquille originally had this as a spin-off of his scrapped franchise Ferret. But on December 28, 2018, he'd decided to have the show separate from his franchise.

Before doing so, he had the idea before bringing it out. The universe was originally to be in Beth's dreams/thoughts/imagination, which was in a dream Shaquille had. That idea however was dropped.

He was to have the "actual" human characters appear in the series, such as Mable, who is the owner of Ryan and Beth who was to be a mother figure and a guardian to them. However, the human characters from the reality universe were dropped out of the series.

One of Shaquille's inspirations of having the characters human was looking at "Garfield the Human" art by VampireMeerkat.[1][2][3]


The first season is animated by Rough Draft Korea, followed by the following seasons animated by Sugarcube.
