Product Description

Product Description

All six episodes from the first season of the BBC's controversial animated comedy series about a group of animals - a horse, a cat, a sparrow, a monkey, a rat and a dog - who have the power of speech and rational thought. The animals live in the luxurious 'club class' wing of a secret vivisection laboratory. Pampered and clothed unlike any lab animals in history, fed vintage wine and exquisite food, they are blissfully unaware of the real world outside - until one cruel night when they are brutally liberated into their so-called natural surroundings by a gang of animal rights activists... Voice talent includes Steve Coogan, Simon Pegg and Julia Davis.

This is without a doubt the best tv show in years, it's like Red Dwarf and The Young Ones were when they first came out. While the surreal-ness of it might get you a few confused looks when you try and explain it to someone who's not seen it, when you find someone who has....well reinacting parts from the show dressed in whatever you could fashion while in the train station can get you some funny looks.

As Philip the horse said about Mark the sparrows music career while he and the rest of them were talking to cut outs of lots of celebrities; 'At least we live in the real world!'

I'm not die-hard Steve Coogan fan but "I am not an animal" is one of the funniest things I've seen on TV.
It veers from the surreal and absurd to sharp satire and back again without batting an eye.
I don't want to say too much as it will spoil gags by giving them away, and you won't get the benefit of the visuals and voices. I would say that the first episode while ok, is by no means the best, but as the series progresses you will be treated to delights such as an Irish call-centre rabbit, a middle-class bulldog called Winnona and a rightwing sparrow who's stage-name is Glen Belt...
The best episode by far is "a star is hatched". It's worth buying just for that one.
Enjoy!

When I ask my friends if they ever saw this on television, they look at me with a strange glazed stare when I try to describe it!! I love all of it especially when the wanton Clare gives birth and Colin suggests putting them back in with a spoon. 'Get off my lah lahs!' is a well used phrase in my household!!!

Well I know what some of my friends will find in their Christmas stockings this year, strange looks indeed!

I only managed to see one episode of this show the first time it ran on terrestrial, however I still bought the dvd the day it went on sale. This show is absolutely hilarious and even thinking of some of the quotes makes me laugh. I would advise anyone with any kind of sense of humour to watch it.
The only thing I would say is that the first episode isn't hugely funny; if I'd only seen that one I wouldn't have been inclined to watch anymore. The best episode is number 5 simply because of Mark the sparrow's hilarious storyline and the quote "i am the manbird of alcatraz." Absolutely brilliant.

A unique bit of animation, quirky and bizarre at times but very funny, and a good dig at upper class snobbery. Only region 2, but still worth picking up, as there really isn't anything quite like it.

I only caught a couple of this series on TV so, when it came out I pounced on it. Bred for the simple reason of being able to say 'I love you' to their owners, it all goes a little too far. When released into the foggy, fielded, wilderness of 'London', the bemused animals dance for all they are worth. because that's what you do in the london fog... It is just that crazy! If you are a fan of the odd, bizarre and downright hilarious...please buy this DVD; it's a definite jewel of British comedy.

Fantastic when it first came out. I think it loses something on second veiwing, maybe because it relys too much on shock value. Still wonderfully controvertual and funny though. I love Clare the rat, and was inspired to alter my friend Clare's photo to make her look more rattish. The episode where Clare finds a boyfriend is my favourite- really foul and Glen Belt's songs are pure genius. Why no more series were made is beyond me.
