|Introduced in||Bee and Puppycat Part 1|
|Voiced by||Oliver (Vocaloid)|
Puppycat is Bee's companion and partner. While Puppycat wears a stern face, he seems to care for Bee, though he hides it with an aloof demeanor. He apparently considers himself a figure of high status, referring to a ladybug as his "peon" and commanding him to "bow down." He wears a bell on his neck, which acts as a message system through which Puppycat receives messages regarding "temp work."
Puppycat looks like an ordinary cat with some minor differences. He has a cat-like body except his face and tail looks like a dog's. Puppycat has mostly a white body with brown ears, thick brown eyebrows, a brown tipped tail, and brown paws. He also came wearing a pink collar with a yellow bell tied to him.
During the Nov. 5th's Reddit AMA, Natasha Allegri commented regarding the mention of Puppycat's genetic makeup:
- "Puppycat is maybe a mash up of... 70 percent cat and 30 percent puppy. Um... let's break it down. Overall appearance is definitely cat like, point ears, kitty face... But maybe the tail is more dog like, he wags it like a puppy would... probably. Puppycat also smells like a dog... but maybe he uses the bathroom like a cat... like a toilet trained cat! Also puppycat probably has a more... fluid hold. like a cat... you know how dogs are super rigid when you pick them up?... umm mm... i think i tried to make puppycat's markings like this http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/5a1T-SARjL8/maxresdefault.jpg hmmmmmmm...."
Following his mysterious appearance, Bee becomes Puppycat's new owner when he fell out of the sky onto her while she was waiting on the crosswalk. Bee took him in to live with her, and gave him toys and food, a fact which has led him to accept her as a caretaker/subordinate. The night Puppycat spent with Bee, Bee had a nightmare that other Puppycat species were with her, walking off a crystal cliff. When Puppycat fell, Bee grabbed him by the paw and he scratched her. The wounds from his claws were rainbow-like and ribbons came out. It caused her to feel sad as the ground beneath her feet shattered.
In a true fairy tale, Puppycat told a story of a Space Outlaw who fell in love with a Space Princess. At the end, it is heavily implied that Puppycat was the outlaw. The Princess lied and betrayed him. It's unknown if the Princess was faking her love to Puppycat and if "Puppycat" is actually his name.
Puppycat speaks in a strange, soft syllabled language which English speakers in the show apparently are capable of understanding. Considering that there are no other official translations for Bee and Puppycat as of yet or characters that speak other languages (as in Adventure Time), there is also a high possibility that Puppycat's speech can be universally understood. In an interview, it was officially said that his voice was created by using VOCALOID Oliver, an English voice synthesizer developed by PowerFX. Puppycat is able to speak to other animals other than cats themselves.
Not much is known about the origins of Puppycat or the full scope of his abilities. What is known is that Puppycat is a member of an unknown legion of space cats, as seen in Bee and Puppycat Part 1, during the dream sequence, whose purpose is still unknown. He apparently has the ability to fire a powerful laser from his mouth if held like a firearm, with his tail cocked like a hammer.
It is implied that prior to his current form, Puppycat was some sort of Space Outlaw who fell in love with a space princess. For an unspecified reason, the princess betrayed him to her father. Acting under the pretense of "running away together", she lured him to their favorite meadow whereupon he was ambushed by a group of the King's warlocks, who attempted to use magic to apprehend him.
However, their magic was altered by the renegade's piercing feelings of betrayal, instead transforming him into a monster and allowing him to escape. It is questionable whether this monstrous form is the one he wears currently, as the computer, aka Assign Bot (who greeted him in the second portion of the first episode, Bee and Puppycat Part 2), commented that he "looks different."
- "Hello Peon. Bow to me."

- "In Fishbowl Space, we babysit Wallace."
- "He always misses his mama...She's been gone for 2 minutes. And she'll probably be back in 10 minutes."
- "Don't touch me."
- "Use the sword. USE THE SWORD AS A SWORD!".
