Bizaardvark is an American comedy series starring Madison Hu, Olivia Rodrigo, Jake Paul, DeVore Ledridge, and Ethan Wacker. The series premiered on Disney Channel on June 24, 2016.


The series follows Frankie and Paige, two teenage best friends who post funny songs and comedic videos on the Internet. After hitting 10,000 subscribers on their Vuuugle channel Bizaardvark (a portmanteau of the words "bizarre" and "aardvark"[2]), they are accepted into the Vuuugle studios, where they make their videos while also having to share them with other "Vuuuglers".

Best friends Paige and Frankie, who have an online channel titled Bizaardvark, hit 10,000 subscribers and get accepted into the Vuuugle studios, a place for other Internet stars. Their friend, Bernie, tags along and tries to convince the girls to let him represent them. The girls meet Dirk, from DareMeBro, a series in which he takes dare requests. Dirk asks the girls if they want some of his cake. Frankie smashes the cake, thinking it is a cake smash dare, but Dirk tells them it was a birthday cake. The girls leave and meet Amelia, from Perfect Perfection with Amelia, a series about fashion. Amelia is stressed because her video will not upload to the Internet. Paige tells her she knows a trick to fix it, and in the process of doing such, she deletes Amelia's video. This leads the whole room to shun the girls. Later, the girls meet Liam, the son of the creator of Vuuugle, who asks them about their channel. Frankie and Paige say the channel was named by thinking of random words and combining them: "bizarre" and "aardvark". They also tell him about their video idea for the upcoming VidView party, and he tells them he does not get it, leading Paige and Frankie to believe they are too weird. They try to change their video, but they get stuck thinking everything they do is too weird. Upset, the girls leave the studio, deciding to quit with Bizaardvark. When Bernie reminds them of their fans, they remember why they make their videos and they resume their original video idea, "The Comeback Song". They show their video at the VidView party and receive praise from Dirk and Amelia who forgave them for what happened. The girls decide to let Bernie be their manager.
