Mongrels is a puppet comedy featuring adult humour. It tells the tale of a group of urban animals who hang out together an inner-city backyard.

The sitcom follows the day-to-day lives, trials and tribulations of Nelson, a metrosexual fox; Destiny, a pretentious pedigree 'it-bitch'; Kali, a deeply cynical pigeon; Marion, an abandoned tom cat; and Vince, a streetwise geezer fox. They are kidults struggling with the everyday drama of life in the back-alleys of the urban jungle.

Mongrels is bold, mischievous, upbeat, surprising and colourful. It encompasses all human life, love and its contradictions - relationships, sex, aspirations, desperations and shattered dreams. The show also features cut-aways and flashbacks (a bit like Family Guy), musical songs and cameo appearances.

On the 18th of January 2012, it was announced that Mongrels would not return for a third series.
