Cupcake & Dino: General Services (or Cupcake & Dino: Serviços Gerais in Portuguese) is a Canadian-Brazilian animated streaming television series created and directed by Pedro Eboli for Netflix. The series is a co-production between Canada and Brazil.
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 (know in Brazil as "bicos"). There is a supporting cast of other anthropomorphised 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.
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 show utilizes a mix of live-action and animation—the live-action sequences were recycled from Shutterstock, which the crew used with permission.
- Cupcake B. Goody (voiced by Justin Collette) is a magenta pastry with a Napoleon complex, and Dino's brother.
- Dinosaur Carol Goody (voiced by Mark Little) is Cupcake's fun-loving, optimistic brother.
- Hugo (voiced by Mark Forward) is Cupcake and Dino's assistant.
- Chance Goody (voiced by Kyle Dooley) is Cupcake and Dino's uncle.

- Grandma Steak (voiced by Julie Lemieux) is Cupcake and Dino's grandma.
- Peetree Gluck the Third (voiced by Joris Jarsky) is 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.
- Chris (the Manygoose)
- Creature Magazine Editor
- Blur Guy
