Animals. is a hilarious and irreverent animated comedy series that aired on HBO from 2016 to 2018. Created by Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano, the show features a cast of anthropomorphic animals living in New York City, all voiced by a talented ensemble of actors including Jacquie Barnbrook.

Each episode of Animals. is an absurd and often cringe-inducing glimpse into the lives of its animal characters, ranging from rats to cats and everything in between. The show explores everything from the mundane struggles of city life to more existential questions about the nature of existence itself.

Despite its crude animation style and at times lewd humor, Animals. manages to be both smart and surprising in its storytelling. The show often uses its animal characters to explore themes of identity, prejudice, and the human condition in ways that are often unexpected and always entertaining.

One of the standout elements of Animals. is its incredible voice cast. Jacquie Barnbrook delivers a standout performance as a number of characters in the series, imbuing each with their own unique quirks and personalities. Her performances are consistently funny and engaging, making her a fan favorite among viewers.

The show's humor is often dark and subversive, with the animal characters getting into all sorts of trouble and engaging in all manner of questionable behavior. Despite this, Animals. never takes itself too seriously and always manages to maintain a sense of humor about even the most off-color subject matter.

Over the course of its two seasons, Animals. tackled a wide range of topics, from a group of squirrels trying to plan the perfect heist to a group of cats grappling with the idea of mortality. The show's creators clearly had a lot of fun exploring the strange and surreal world they had created, and the result is a show that is as delightful as it is bizarre.

Despite its cult following and critical acclaim, Animals. was canceled after its second season, much to the disappointment of its devoted fan base. While the show may have been short-lived, it remains a testament to the power of creative storytelling and brilliant voice acting.

In conclusion, Animals. is an animated comedy series that defies convention and expectation at every turn. With its unforgettable cast of characters and unique approach to storytelling, the show stands out as a standout example of innovative and unconventional television programming. And with Jacquie Barnbrook among its talented voice cast, it's no wonder the show left such a lasting impression on audiences during its run.

Animals. is a series that is currently running and has 3 seasons (30 episodes). The series first aired on February 5, 2016.
