Storyline

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 ...

Trivia

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 »

Alright Animorphs fans
1 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You know, the show REALLY could have done much better than they did. At first, when i watched the first episode the night it premiered, i was like, "this really isn't that great". I didn't care about the actors, the dialog, or even the crappy way the Controllers spoke(typical supreme being dialect). What really turned me off was the use of horrible CG and the way it strayed away from the books. If my brain could turn away from these two, then the show would be a'ight.

Later in life(present day), when i'm 19, almost 20, i decided to give the show another chance and ordered the VHS online(for only a dollar!). You know? The first 3 episodes were really not that bad. The actors were pretty good(except for Rachel) and the story was kinda similar to the books. Even Marco's humor was good. Still, the low-budget way to make this show turned me off. Hork-bajir look like something from the 80's 'Dinosaurs' and andalites really don't look that great. And this is for the first 3 episodes... Don't get me started on the others. ALSO everyone else is right in saying the show shoulda been longer and put on another channel(Nickelodeon is for 'brainless cartoons' like the other guy said).

Read and tell the Animorphs media team this. They've ruined a good series and should regret it hahaha.
