Talking animals on DVD

Our five fave series on DVD starring talking animals

1. Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp
This ’70s spy spoof is the place to go on DVD if you’re looking for chimps in hats and a groovy all-monkey band named the Evolution Revolution.

2. Family Guy
Talk? Ha! The dog and the baby sing ”The Freakin’ FCC” on the volume 4 DVD — but it also has the ”Fat Guy Strangler” episode, so beware.

3. Wishbone
Cute PBS kids’ show you’ve never heard of about a book-loving dog. In ”Paw Prints of Thieves” he becomes Robin Hood.

4. Mr. Ed
TV’s original talking horse! (No, Francis was a mule and a movie star.)

5. Sabrina, the Teenage Witch
Yay, Salem! What? Do the words animatronic cat mean nothing to you?
