"Humans are garbage" HBO's Animals consults other city dwellers
House cats feel awkward when alley cats visit.
Geese talk trash as they pick through yours.
Rats don't want to bring dud gifts to dinner parties.
Animals co-creators Mike Luciano and Phil Matarese imagine non-human city dwellers deep in their own drama. The duo joins guest host Talia Schlanger to discuss their hit animated series about the secret lives of urban animals — from dog park outcasts to parade-loving horses.
They also explain how their lo-fi animation wormed its way onto HBO, and how they got celebrities like Jessica Chastain, Wanda Sykes and Marc Maron to do voice work for their weird little cartoon.
WEB EXTRA | Watch the trailer and a teaser for Animals below and tell us: how conscious are you of the animals that share your city? Do you ever wonder what they're thinking?
