INTERNET PHENOM LIL BUB IS THE CAT'S PAJAMAS IN ANIMAL PLANET'S "LIL BUB'S SPECIAL SPECIAL"
-- Amy Sedaris and Andrew W.K. Join Lil BUB and Her Friends For a Slumber Party
On February 8 --
(Silver Spring, Md.) - LIL BUB is a one-of-a-kind, magical cat that travels space and time with her powerful mind and makes hearts melt with her gorgeous green eyes. A renowned international star, Lil BUB still finds time to enjoy the simpler things in life, like having her friends over for a good-old-fashioned slumber party. And, now, Animal Planet lets you join the fun!
In LIL BUB'S SPECIAL SPECIAL, premiering Saturday, February 8, from 9-9:30 PM (ET/PT), Lil BUB takes full advantage of an empty house when her owner, Mike, heads out for the night. As the saying goes, when Lil BUB's dude is away, the cat will play, and Lil BUB has plans to invite her assortment of furry friends for a slumber party to watch rock star Andrew W.K.'s new clip show PARTY ANIMALS. To make sure the party doesn't get too catty, Mike enlists a special 'bubbysitter,' Amy Sedaris, who promises to keep an eye on things...
Amy is the cat's meow when it comes to bubbysitting and has all kinds of fun planned, including playing charades with the gang and ordering a pizza with outlandish toppings that is sure to please all. But, no matter how cool of a cat Amy is, she can't stop Lil BUB and her friends -a miniature horse, bunny and guinea pig - from partaking in prank phone calls, pillow fights and other hijinks. And who knows, perhaps Lil BUB's playful rival, Colonel Meow, may show up to stir up some trouble. To top the night off, Lil BUB unveils a 'purrfect' surprise - her special brand of space magic that leaves everyone open jawed with tongues out!
