Series Info

Escapist inanity focusing on a crimefighter with the power to turn himself into animals. All kinds of animals, including a black panther, a hawk, a kitten and a shark. Neither man nor beast could survive in the time slot opposite `Dallas,' and `Manimal' was put out of its misery quickly.

Critics Consensus: Borderline grotesque special effects and a series of unimpressive antagonists make Manimal a thoroughly lackluster superhero show.
