With family size dwindling, the Whiskers are the weakest they have been for a long time. Rocket Dog's second litter of pups couldn't come at better time. But when danger can come from any direction, ...
This is a documentary drama series which follows a meerkat family in the Kalahari Desert, South Africa, called the Whiskers. Flower is the leader/dominant female of the group, Zaphod is her partner and dominant male, Youssarian is Zaphod's younger brother and Flower's ex-lover and Mozart, Tosca and Shakespeare are all children of Flower. In our journey with this group we'll follow several intriguing events like: Fights with arch rival group the Lazuli; storms; death; family politics and the disappearance of a meerkat we had gotten to know very well.Written by
The meerkats Youssarian and Zaphod are named after two rebellious characters from satirical and humorous literature: the insubordinate John Yossarian in Joseph Heller's "Catch-22", and the egocentric Zaphod Beeblebrox in Douglas Adams' "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy". See more »
I cannot remember any of my TV life since I met the Whiskers family.... No other program can compare. Their reality, their life, and, sadly the tragic event of the pups' deaths mirrors life without the need for extreme makeovers or trading places. Watching these little critters interact with each other and their environment allows you to watch how you wished we could all live and love. Want a lesson in parenting? Take a look at the Whiskers and their babysitters. I only hope for the best for courageous little Shakespeare. Unfortunately the "Clue" to Shakespeare's fate was not in the first two episodes of the new season. But Flower, Zaphod, Mitch and the rest of the Naughty kits, the Lazuli and a new group called the Commandoes will keep me tuning in to the Animal Planet every Friday eve.
