Critic Consensus: While the humor is uneven and the characters verge on obnoxious, Animals compensates with its straightforward approach and wacky social commentary.

News & Interviews for Animals.: Season 1
There's nothing particularly new about television shows trying to humanize animals, but "Animals" pushes this tendency to the extreme.
In a sea of new television offerings, it's hard to dismiss something with as strong and focused a voice as this, even if it may not be your cup of tea.
It's in that cleverness that Animals could develop a loyal audience, but its very specific tone and alienating animation also makes it a hard sell. Luckily for those in the former camp there will be time to spread the word.
I could see this hilarious television series either becoming a big hit with a strong word of mouth ("have you seen that show...") or, at very worst, earning its place amongst other loved cult classics.
An amiable and ambling amusement but rarely much more than that, Animals is most notable for how weirdly committed it is to furthering a sense of inner-city ennui.
