The 26-episode series, created and executive produced by Dyrdek, features Lil Rob, a character based on Rob himself, and his talking dog and best friend, Meaty, of course based on Dyrdek’s real life four-legged best buddy, Meaty.

When developing the show, it was a no-brainer for Dyrdek to include Meaty as a main character. Rob told PEOPLE magazine, “I loved the idea of having Meaty be Rob’s best friend and confidante on the show,” he says. “It’s blending my life now with my youth.”

Wild Grinders airs Friday nights at 7pm ET on Nicktoons.
