Ashamedly, I watched my 1st episode of Manimal this evening (10.12.07) with another 4 to be recorded this week. Jonathan Chase is an interesting character to say the least.

The eight episodes made in 1983 is ridiculously short for any series but I suppose it'll remain iconic purely due to the character's various transformations.

Probably could have had more if it wasn't cancelled. Tho it was cancelled for a reason. I have a habit of watching cancelled programs and really enjoying them. Manimal is quite a 'cult' show. If it wasn't they wouldn't be replaying it so much.

There is something about the pervy breathing tho :oops:

The whole Manimal concept is pretty Naff which COULD be a prime reason for just the 8 episodes in the series but J.C and his 2 partners in crime create a fantastic team. The man-animal transformations - before anyone says it I know it's no real - are brilliantly done.

And doesn't Simon look gorgeous as J.C? At the present, Harry Harper still retains his character top spot.

See I love shows like this - no matter how crud they seems to others, I grew up with Woof! and LOVED it, so it fits with other similar programs I like, just a shame I didn't know about it/watch it sooner

If anyone is interested, you can buy Manimal on dvd via [No 'Official DVDs' are available, PM if you want link]. I hope this is helpful to someone.
