"I Am Not an Animal" (2004) is a British animated comedy series about a group of animals who have been given human-level intelligence and speech capabilities through a series of experiments. While they live in luxury, other animals at the lab are subjected to horrific experiments.

I Am Not An Animal Full Episode Guide

  • Life away from Vivi-Sec UK just hasn't worked out. Unsurprisingly, Julian gets less than a hero's welcome when he shows up again, bent on finishing the job of setting our animals free. An already tense situation escalates into a full-scale siege when Mark finally snaps and goes mad with a gun. With the house surrounded by armed police and Julian issuing a demand that all animals everywhere are given free passage to "somewhere nice, like Tuscany," it looks like the end for our furry fugitives.

  • Mark (stage name Glen Belt), is struggling to write a hit single. But his lyrics are awful and he can't think of a chorus. His self-run fan website has received no visitors. But Keiko, a musical prodigy in Tokyo, stumbles on the site, falls in love with him and sends him a chorus. Mark tells Keiko to get lost, takes the chorus, posts it on the site and sinks into a depression. He surfaces a week later to find the song is a massive hit, but he isn't prepared for the fame he's always craved.

  • The wild is a cruel, dangerous environment for any animal, especially without cash. Being a fugitive doesn't pay well, Mark the bird's music career hasn't taken flight yet and the money found hidden in a shoebox in Greenbank cottage is running low. Pride prevents Philip the horse from claiming disability benefit on account of the difficulty he has getting up the stairs, so when Hugh blows their last ?400 on a broken laptop, the animals are forced to embark on a series of moneymaking schemes.

  • The "liberated" animals stand shivering in a foggy field. When they are nearly blown to pieces while searching for the West End on an army firing range, a power struggle emerges between natural leader Philip the Horse and Mark. As an emotional split ensues, the intrepid heroes also have to endure terrifying encounters. Thank goodness that Janet looks kindly on the bunch of traumatized animals that knock on her door. But the men back at Project S are out looking for the furry fugitives.

  • A group of animals - a horse, cat, sparrow, monkey, rat and a dog - have all been given the power of speech and rational thought. They live in a 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...
