All about the deal

All about the deal

The deal comprises 20 x 6-minute episodes of the blended live action and animated scripted comedy with talking animals. It stars English comedian, broadcaster, and writer Alan Carr as narrator ‘Gary the Dog’ and targets 5-12-year-olds.

The show launched on Sky last month. The funny and unique series sees Gary the vlogging dog (voiced by Alan Carr) sneak into a secret underground vault on a mission to show the world what animals are really like. Broadcasting from the vault, he will prove that wild animals are not as clever and graceful as boring humans would have people believe. He’s got a basement full of clips of pratt-falling pandas, moonwalking marmots, and calamitous koalas.

What's it about?

What's it about?

Each hilarious episode is jam-packed with the wild world’s greatest falls, fumbles, and feral tomfoolery. Using state of the art VFX ‘muzzle replacement’ Gary introduces and narrates the clips adding his own hilarious brand of voice over. A team of impressionists voice a wealth of comic characters in a show full of animal antics, musical montages, beastly bloopers, and David Attenborough getting really annoyed!

Silly Animals has been a genuine labour of love for all at Rebel and we feel privileged to have the amazing JetPack team on board for the next, exciting part of its journey. The show has the perfect blend of slapstick humour and amazing animal behaviour to appeal to kids (even grownup ones) from every corner of the world.

We laughed a lot at this show, which is the second animal documentary we’ve added to our catalogue recently. Animals are adored by kids across the world and Silly Animals shows them in a hilarious new light. Alan Carr brings his inimitable style to the narration as Gary and a host of brilliant voice overs make this show a truly excellent addition to our comedy line up.
