An Australian cartoon couple has become internet sensations after getting into the act with an adorable cartoon frog.
The two-minute short “The Frog’s In My Heart” has garnered more than a million views on YouTube and is drawing comparisons to some of the most popular YouTube videos of all time.
Advertisement The Frog’s in My Heart (Frog in My Hat) started life as a simple YouTube clip featuring a family’s dog getting a haircut, which turned into a viral hit.
A few days later, a Facebook group began to grow, attracting more than 200,000 members and making the video a huge hit.
Now the cartoon duo is making a comeback with the new cartoon, “The Bird and The Butterfly”, which has been nominated for an Australian Animation Awards nomination.
It features the two-year-old frog in a headband, who is accompanied by a hummingbird and a butterfly.
They are joined by a red duck and a rainbow.
The pair have been dubbed the “fog and rainbows” of the internet, after the two characters in the animated series, The Simpsons and The Big Bang Theory.
The Frogs are seen as the “fun and lighthearted” part of the animated family, while the bird and butterfly are the “silly, stupid and stupidest characters”.
The duo say they have always wanted to make a cartoon together and are excited to be doing so.
“We love drawing frogs and being in the frog video game, so we thought it would be fun to do a cartoon about frogs,” the Frogs said.
“It’s really funny because you can just take a look at the little frog and the little bird and you get this funny vibe.”
It was not the first time the Frog’s have made an internet sensation, having performed in an Australian pop song contest at the ABC in 2013.
The video was so popular that the Frog have been nominated again for an Emmy Award in 2017.
“The video was such a huge success that we’ve done more frog videos,” the frog duo said.
The new short was originally supposed to be the first of three Frogs in My Hearts videos to be released in the next year.
“But the internet just went wild and we just kept getting more views and more videos,” said the Frog, who have shared the video on social media with their 1.3 million followers.
The frog couple said they are also excited to bring the video to more Australian viewers.
“In our hearts, we know that there are lots of people who love the frogs and we want to bring it to them too,” they said.
