An unusual sitcom devised and co-written by Eddie Izzard. The Johnson family are a group of cows who exhibit many human attributes. They can speak English, live in a house and drive a car. However, when son-of-the-family Rex introduces his new girlfriend, a human girl called Pinky, the differences in lifestyle become more apparent, and when their house is destroyed they must find a new place to live.
The story then sees them visiting their Great Aunt Grace, organising a wedding for son Rex and his human bride Pinky and entering the world of politics. But nothing goes as expected.
