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!

I just came up with the most awesome idea EVER. I mean - the best possible idea one could possibly ever come up with.

...a Hollywood action-blockbuster interpretation of The Ferals - with all the animals played by actual actors - directed by Michael Bay!

Rattus would be played by Tom Cruise, naturally. Modigliana would be played by Megan Fox (because Michael Bay). Scarlett Johansson would be Mixy and the part of Derryn would be played by Kelsey Grammar. He was in Transformers once, I think.

Keith & Kylie? CGI robots. Because robots are bloody awesome.

Episode S02E10 of The Ferals details the rise of Mixymania! Mixy becomes a rapper, while Joe becomes her obsessive manager and recruits Keith and fake Kylie as her backup dancers. And Rattus? He jokes about blending rabbits.

Rattus. Rattus never changes.

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!
