Four garishly-coloured, music-loving animals - Rory the lion, Bongo the dog, Boots the tiger and Twang the monkey - visit Planet Earth in their flying saucer from the mysterious planet of 'Popland'. They sing contemporary pop hits and tell a story, before returning to their home planet at the end of each episode.Written by
THIS is postive proof that the older generation who grew up in the 70's spent most of their time as children witnessing a freakshow on television. Animal Kwackers, along with Picture Box, was pretty damn scary, more than any Hollywood movie ever could be. The blue Rastafarian lion looks more terryfing than anything Rick Baker could ever achieve. I think this was made by a bunch of LSD taking rock n' rollers who thought it would be funny to scare the pants off of kids expecting a Banana Splits spin off. Perhaps the scariest thing of all, however, is the fact that the music sounds as though it's been written and performed by none other than Paul McCartney. And everyone thought that John Lennon was the weirdest Beatle.
