Volume 1 of Almost Naked Animals, Cartoon Network’s top-rated animated series for kids aged 6-11, became available on DVD.
Almost Naked Animals is a joyously irreverent animated comedy series, featuring an oddly lovable assortment of free-spirited animals in their underwear, who run a beach-front hotel like kids at a summer camp – doing their best to make each day more fun than the last. Lead dog and hotel manager Howie, who has the attention span of an 11 year old in a video arcade, heads the dysfunctional but extremely humorous ensemble cast.
In addition to the DVD release, The Almost Naked Animals “Online Super Game” will be launching on September 25th. Café Press has partnered with 9 Story Entertainment to launch a new online store on September 25th, featuring Almost Naked Animals t-shirts, notebooks and more.
Based on the quirky designs of Noah Z. Jones, (creator of Fish Hooks), Almost Naked Animals features an ensemble cast of underwear-clad animals, led by Howie, the fun-loving, hospitality challenged canine manager of the beachfront hotel, Banana Cabana.
I received a Banana Cabana Welcome Package, which included a Almost Naked Animals Volume 1 DVD, an Almost Naked Animals tote bag, an Almost Naked Animals t-shirt, a notebook and a few small joke items like a whoopie cushion and a fake fly in an ice cube. My girls were sooooo excited. They both love the show and my youngest is a prankster. I made the mistake of calling it naked animals…. boy was I lectured! I sat down to watch it with them and it’s HILARIOUS!!
Almost Naked Animals: It’s My Party! DVD Episode Synopsis:
It’s My Party – Episode 101
While getting the hotel ready for a big party, everyone gets trapped in the basement – with only Duck to save them. Then, the Bynana Cabana needs to be awarded at least one star by a reviewer in order to keep the hotel out of Poodle’s clutches.
Saliva Drive – Episode 102
Dirk Danger is holding a contest to find a sidekick for his new movie. Howie desperately wants the part, but when Octo wins, Howie has to help his friend make it through the stunts. Then, Howie finds a lost toy that – when you add water to it – becomes a monster truck!
One Star Hotel – Episode 103
Howie quits the hotel biz to try to lure his hero Dirk Danger out of retirement. Then, Howie leaves a humongous hunk of ear wax under his pillow for the Ear Wax Elf. But when the Elf doesn’t arrive, it’s up to Howie to figure out what he did to make the Ear Wax Elf mad!
What Would Batty DO – Episode 104
A Howie stunt goes very wrong and injures Poodle’s assistant, Batty, so Howie takes over as Poodle’s assistant while Batty recuperates at the Banana Cabana. Then, an electrical mishap leaves Duck with psychic powers – or so everyone believes. Poodle stages a Duck-napping in order to have a psychic of her very own.
Employee of the Month – Episode 105
Howie has been secretly awarding himself Employee of the Month for years. When the staff find out they challenge Howie to take on all their jobs and do them better. Surely he’s up to it!
Duck Vinci Code – Episode 106
When the Banana Cabana runs out of food (thanks to Poodle), Howie plants a ‘magic bean.’ Next thing they know, the bean becomes a monstrous animal-swallowing plant! Then, Howie’s trapped inside the Chateau Chattoo and all his friends are stuck outside, as a ketchup, mustard and relish hurricane rages across the beach.
We are HUGE fans and look forward to more episodes
The Banana Cabana is on Twitter and Facebook, too, so be sure to stop by and follow along in the fun!
