The latest episode of BBC Three’s “multi-species puppet comedy” Mongrels airs tonight at 10.30 featuring special appearances by Jeff Brazier and Clive Anderson.
If you’ve missed the series so far, the show features an array of characters including Nelson, a metrosexual fox; Destiny, a pretentious pedigree It-bitch; Marion, a freshly-neutered wannabe tomcat; Kali, a deeply cynical pigeon; and Vince, the neighbourhood sociopath.
Voice talents for the puppets – created by Talk to the Hand – are provided by Rufus Jones, Lucy Montgomery, Dan Tetsell, Katy Brand, Paul Kaye and Ruth Bratt.
In this week’s episode Destiny wins the Animal Of Courage Award for saving a little boy from drowning, despite the fact it was actually Marion who saved his life. She meets her idol Jeff Brazier as he presents her the award, and sniffs his crotch.
