The Stinky & Dirty Show is an American-Irish-British animated series that premiered on January 15, 2015 on Amazon Prime Video. A preview was shown alongside two other potential series; Sara Solves It and Buddy: Tech Detective. It ultimately won in view, and the other two shows were scrapped. The series premiered in 2015 with its first season, and ended with an extended second season lasting until summer 2019.

Plot

The adventures of best friends and unlikely heroes, Stinky the garbage truck and Dirty the backhoe loader, a dynamic and hilarious duo of resourcefulness that learn that when things don't go as expected, asking "what if" can lead to success. Based on the books by Jim and Kate McMullan.

Characters

  • Stinky (voiced by Jaden Betts in season 1; Issac Ryan Brown in season 2) – A brown rear loader garbage truck who is the sillier one of the duo. He sees value in garbage where others don't and often provides materials needed to solve a problem, though he often attempts sillier methods such as sneaking in his favorite trash item (moldy melons). Although both Stinky and Dirty hate being clean, Stinky doesn't mind being washed... so long as he retains his signature foul odor.
  • Dirty (voiced by Jacob Guenther in season 1; Jet Jurgensmeyer in season 2) – A yellow backhoe loader with a rotating cab who is the more mature one and the brains of the duo. He dreams of becoming the world's best building truck and often thinks more logically in their plans than his best friend. He often draws his ideas on a soft surface on the ground to review ideas, and has a liking for dirt. He has a rock collection and a two-way radio used to call other vehicles for assistance. Although both Stinky and Dirty hate being clean, Dirty has a fear of soap, and often panics if he comes in contact with the fluid.
