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 »

Quotes

Police Radio: Tango foxtrot. All units. Talking animals escaped from top secret research centre. No need for alarm. Do not approach without shooting dead.
Sarge: Huh! Talking animals!
Jones: But, Sarge, what about that dog that says "sausages"?
Sarge: That was the seventies, Jones. He'll be dead by now.

I thought it was brilliant
15 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It was brilliant because it allowed the wackiness to be carried through without any flaws committed by poor writing.

Totally magic!

The pace of the writing was fresh, and given the potential that such a large canvas might cause the writers to fall down a hole, the characters lively interaction carried the basic premise (that is totally wacky) in an engaging way.

At the same time you might be feeling pity on the animals, laughing with them, laughing at them, and rooting for them all at the same time. Magic!
