Animals Trailer: New HBO Comedy Rife With Racist Cats, Sexual Pigeons

HBO’s Animals proves that life in the big city can be difficult for anyone, be they a man, a woman, or even a sadistic lab mouse eager to become a snake’s next meal.

The official trailer for the new animated comedy — executive-produced by Jay and Mark Duplass — hit the web this weekend, giving us our first look at (the voices of) Jessica St. Clair, Lennon Parham, Ike Barinholtz and endless other comedians as they slip into the skin (and fur) of the animal kingdom’s most twisted residents.

There are the cats who refuse to accept a new (Spanish?) friend into their inner circle, the dog who equates his local park to a prison, and the sarcastic pair of horses who can’t help but praise the “comfortable” craftsmanship of their horseshoes. And those are the normal ones of the bunch.

Animals, which received a two-season pickup from HBO, premieres Friday, Feb. 5 at 11:30/10:30c. Will you be tuning in? Hit PLAY on the trailer above, then drop a comment with your thoughts below.

    Is this supposed to be like Creature Comforts? The guys who made Wallace and Gromit did a show on ITV (UK) like this, I’m sure.
