The Ferals was an Australian children's comedy television series created by Wendy Gray and Claire Henderson and produced by the ABC. It ran from 1994 to 1995, and it featured a mixture of people and animal puppets known as the "Ferals."

The Ferals are four fuzzy funsters who live in a shed at the bottom of their reluctant landlord's garden: a cheating rat with green teeth; a mangy cat; a fluorescent orange dog and a dizzy pink rabbit. The series revolves around their rivalries, schemes and adventures as they attempt to survive and prosper.
Wow, its been so long since I saw that show and really wish that it was still on the air.
I was about 8 years old when this show started and it has always left an impression on me. The Ferals epitomised all that was Australian in my view. Their happy go lucky attitude and their accent and of course the yard they lived in with the corragated iron fences and shed to the Hills Hoist.
The live cast was also fantastic and added a little bit of live comical theatrics to the show, not that it was needed of course. If anything I wish that it could be shown to younger generation Australians and give them a sense of identity because it would be ashame if many kids miss out on the fun and the joy it gave me and many others my age at the time had when we watched it.
