Trivia

Was originally conceived as a CGI show using motion-capture for the faces of the characters. However, this was changed (after going partly into production with it) as they realized just how restrictive CGI would be on their budget. See more »

Wow- definitely not cutesy animation
9 August 2007 | by kaguSee all my reviews

This is one of those shows where you just aren't sure whether to love it or hate it but one thing is for sure. It's definitely not a children's animation. Decapitation, sexual fantasy, guns, jokes about the poor are just the beginning. This show is OUT there and i think i love it. But i recognize that it's crap. Like the 80's - it's terrible but god how we love to look back on glam rock and love ballads.

So basically, talking animals (a horse, an English bull dog, a monkey, a rat, and a sparrow) are created in a lab and set free by a misguided animal rights extremist. The animals then have to go from a life of luxury designed especially for them to one of utter poverty in a confused world where none of the other animals talk. They learn that meat comes from *gasp* other animals, That humans wont accept animals that talk, And that making money is harder than it looks. The rat has an over-sex-drive, The horse is an author, the sparrow is a wanna be singer cynic, the bull dog is a lady of breeding, and the monkey is a brain dead weirdo.

It's worth a couple episodes. You'll be in love, or so disgusted you have to turn it off or keep watching just to see what happens.
