The Ferals Podcast

Violence. Substance abuse. Cheating to win. Welcome to Australian kids television in the 90s! Join Monkey Boy, Swinny & Mike for The Ferals Podcast – an in-depth look at the Australian cult-classic children’s TV show The Ferals. Aired between ’94 and ‘95 on the Australian Broadcasting Network (ABC), the show has since fallen into obscurity – and it’s up to us to bring it back out of the mothballs, dammit! Listen in utter amazement as we breakdown the exploits of Rattus P. Rattus, Modigliana, Derrin and Mixy as they plot against their evil landlord Joe King, with the aid of their student friends Robbie and Leonard. Oh, there’s also Keith the Koala. He’s awesome. So prepare yourself for a headfirst, one-way trip into the bizarre, violent – and at times, frankly disturbing world of The Ferals!

Ladies and gentlemen. Children of all ages. The moment you've all been waiting for...

Will our hero Lenny finally find love? Will he navigate his way out of the perilous, abyssal space of the dreaded friendzone? Find out what happens in the next thrilling episode of The Ferals Podcast!

(Spoiler alert - he doesn't. He totally bombs. But we made him feel better by writing a song).

In Episode S01E11 (kinda) of The Ferals, Joe studies economics for a uni entrance exam, Derryn turns into Wikipedia and gets a receptionist, and the gang use chemical weapons on a paedophile termite. I wish I was making that up.

Listen as Monkey Boy, Swinny & Mike delve into the bizarre, violent - and at times, frankly disturbing world of Australian children's TV show, The Ferals!

Let's make the best of the situation

And maybe share a sheet or two

You know you set my digital heart aflame

You're my guitar vixen, I want you

 

Robbie - You got me on my knees

Robbie - I swear I got rid of those fleas

Robbie - Won't you ease my friendzoned mind?

 

I tried to give you consolation

When your Aunt Mavis let you down

She conned you out of money, and it seems so awfully strange

She looks like Ric Flair wearing drag in his younger days

 

Robbie - (Woo) You got me on my knees

Robbie - Let's partake in some reciprocal biology

Robbie - Won't you ease my friendzoned mind?

 

Robbie - You got me on my knees

Robbie - So I might just try my luck with Kylie

You know I don't mind some kangaroo sometimes

 

Kylie - You got me on my knees

Kylie - With your furry cloacal cavities

Kylie - Won't you ease my friendzoned mind?

You get a doppelganger! And you get a doppleganger... and you get one too! Everybody gets a doppelganger!!!

Except Keith. Shafted every time. Poor bastard – I'm just waiting for the episode where he goes postal on the rest of the cast. There must be a reason this show never went beyond two proper seasons...

Episode S01E10 (we think) of The Ferals sees the gang on the run from a giant loan shark, while Joe somehow manages to turn a photocopier into a digital duplicator using coffee. Science!

What do you get when you look inside the brain of a devious, violent, dirty street rat?

Why... Mary Poppins vs Rambocat, of course!

In Episode S01E09 of The Ferals, Modligiana contracts a supposedly terminal disease and graces the nation's tabloids, Robbie has nightmares about kissing Joe on stage, and Rattus is stripped naked by bats. Spread eagle.

Nothing out of the ordinary, really.

Who doesn't love a homicidal living rock that has a penchant for singing French children's songs? I used to have one as a child – it was awfully gneiss.

Episode S01E08 of The Ferals sees Robbie's Aunt Mavis pay the group a visit, while the Ferals are terrorised by a bizarre alien rock monster. Seems like something fishy is going on... and I'm not just talking about the rock.

So, for an in-depth discussion on coin faces, yellow fruit, Ric Flair in drag and Mike talking his usual brand of nonsensical rubbish, look no further!
