My name is Elfangor. I am a prince from the Andalite world. I am dying. My ship has crash-landed on a planet called Earth. This is not the first time my hooves have touched the surface of this vast and beautiful world, but it will be the last. The Yeerks have launched their silent attack on Earth. Yeerks are evil parasites who live in the brains of other species. Now their goal is to enslave every human being on this planet. As I looked into five pairs of innocent human eyes, I knew what I had to do. These young people had no knowledge of the invasion, no idea that some of their closest friends and family members were already under Yeerk control. But they would soon bear the responsibility of saving their entire world. I gave them the power to morph, Andalite technology no other species has ever possessed. Now these humans will be able to use the energy and instincts of any living creature to resist the Yeerks. They can become any animal they touch. Many Andalites have called me a ... Written by
Unlike in the book series, where any normal clothing the Animorphs wore during morph was either destroyed or left behind, the TV series showed the Animorphs capable of morphing their clothing whenever they transformed; no explanation was given for this, beyond simple dramatic license. See more »

Well Animorphs really did kick but in novel form. I never read the entire series but I remember the general story well and watched all episodes that aired to TV. It hit T.V and realistically followed suit with most children's books that get turned into T.V shows...In other words it sucked. Low budgeting, bad scripting, unconvincing stunts, special effect techniques of the 80s and a cast full of noobs not to mention the differences in personalities between the characters in the book and that of the show. Give credit to those brave young actors as they're the only reason the show made it through to 12 episodes. Good thing it did otherwise 2 great upcoming young actors in Shawn Ashmore may never have wound up in X-Men as the Iceman, and, Paul Costanzo who we all loved as Rubin in Road trip. Brooke Nevin's beauty was her saving grace cause I really didn't think she could act at the time as Rachel. But she's managed to hang on with small roles until her minor part as Nikki in the 4400 that has boosted her creditability. Apart from that it's no surprise to see Cassie, Marco and Tobias ended their careers. At least with good writing, bad actors can be made to look better. They only have the show creators to blame. This show had soo much potential to be soo much more but not in the hands of those who created it. Animorphs was sorta of a Heroes crossed with Stargate SG1 in theme, and look how successful those two have done and still do today. Big budgets, great writers, effects, characters and recognizable actors who CAN act. It's does wonders for a show...
