Storyline

Welcome to the Funny Farm, an institute run completely by animals. At the top of the herd is Olly the Ox, a good-natured bull who takes in every animal friend he makes: a laughing mole, a sarcastic toucan, a bald lion, a hot-tempered rhino... with every friend he makes his farm gets a little bigger, and a little more wackier. But in spite of all the insanity and the animals mixing with each other, Olly still keeps his good heart and kicks in with his best effort to keep his farm going. Written by Q. Leo Rahman

Basic, but good solid fun
26 June 2015 | by (Zambia) – See all my reviews

There isn't really anything too amazing or outstanding about this show. It's a basic "talking animal" cartoon, where an ox named Ollie keeps a farm going with the mixed help and interference from his fellow animal friends.

However, the show is good and solid fun: the jokes are easy to understand and laugh at. And it has a unique multicultural background: it was based on a Dutch comic, animated by a Japanese company (director Hiroshi Sasagawa is the genius behind SPEED RACER and VOLTRON) and is dubbed in English by a veteran voice cast from Saban Entertainment (the studio behind POWER RANGERS).

On the whole, it's a good watch for children, and for older viewers it's enjoyable once in a while.
