A new animated series featuring the concept of Bitcoin personified is going viral on Internet. The first episode of "Bitcoin and Friends" by Uncle Chris Productions can be seen on Youtube.

The 8-part cartoon sequence tells the life of a lonely bitcoin in search of his lost father.

Bitcoin awakens to a chaotic world following the 2008 financial crisis. With only a few words to his young child, Satoshi Nakamoto disappears, leaving Bitcoin with more questions than answers. Fortunately, a benevolent ice cream truck owner - Jones takes Bitcoin under his wing in a search to find his father.

Satoshi Nakamoto is the mysterious creator of Bitcoin.

In the first episode, titled "Tears of a Clown", the lead character "B" wakes up in a hospital lab, and finds some quirky friends - Jones and Itty Bity.

Other characters in the story include "Pal Fifty", a mysterious computer programmer; Bitcoin's love interest and best friend "Ethereum"; inventor of Ethereum called Mitalik, Great Grandpa, Harold, and the Bankster Henchmen.

"The story of Bitcoin and crypto is so colorful that it was an obvious treasure trove of good comedy and compelling characters and stories," according to producer Robert Allen.

The show's aim is to "educate non-crypto people about bitcoin and related technologies and bring them into the space," he explained in an interview.

Uncle Chris is the cartoon series' director, who also renders voice to the protagonist lead character.

The upcoming episodes are titled "Existence Crisis," "The Silky Road," "Federal Undercover Agents (F.U.D.)", "The White Paper", "A Coin On A Mission", "The Big Bank," and "Jamie Sapphire & The Rod Of Truth."
