Cupcake and Dino: General Services (or Cupcake e Dino: Serviços Gerais in Portuguese) is an animated television series created by Pedro Eboli for Teletoon in Canada, Disney XD in Latin America & Brazil, and Netflix in the US.[1]

The series follows the life of Cupcake and Dino, two brothers who strive to make a name for themselves in the General Services (odd jobs) business.[2] It was released to Netflix on July 27, 2018.[3]

The second season was released on May 3, 2019.


Cupcake & Dino: General Services revolves around a tiny cupcake and his giant dinosaur brother as they strive to make a name for themselves in the competitive General Services business (known in Brazil as "bicos").[4] There is a supporting cast of other anthropomorphized food, objects, animals, and mythical creatures, as well as humans. There is no apparent reason or distinction between different types of characters, with Cupcake and Dino being presented as birth siblings and having a Grandma Steak and a human uncle.

Episodes follow the loose format of Cupcake and Dino taking on a general services job where unintended consequences usually follow absurd plot points. Each episode also has repeated basic themes found in young children's programming such as friendship, honesty, bravery, and loyalty—often accompanied by simple songs emphasizing these themes.

The series was animated using Adobe Animate and utilizes live-action sequences that were recycled from Shutterstock, which the crew used with permission.




  • Hugo (voiced by Mark Forward) is Cupcake and Dino's lovable manager and assistant.
  • Chance Goody (voiced by Kyle Dooley) is Cupcake and Dino's human uncle and Grandma Steak’s son.
  • Vicky (voiced by Julie Sype) is the teenage mayor of Big City and a friend of Cupcake and Dino.
  • Grandma Steak (voiced by Julie Lemieux) is Cupcake and Dino's feisty grandmother and Uncle Chance’s mother.
  • Peetree Gluck the Third (voiced by Joris Jarsky) is a rooster with a southern accent and Cupcake and Dino's rival.
  • Sneaky Stan (voiced by Kyle Dooley) is Uncle Chance's grocery store rival.
  • Officer Bees (voiced by Kayla Lorette) is a bee police officer.
