Animals. might be the best Adult Swim cartoon that never aired on Adult Swim. Animated by Starburns Industries (Rick and Morty) with guest voices from Katie Aselton, Rob Corddry, Mark Duplass, Nick Kroll, and Jason Mantzoukas, it has a certain absurdist, stonercomedy appeal as each episode focuses on a different New York City-dwelling creature. The pilot follows two party-going rats, played by the show’s creators, Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano, as they attempt to seduce females into making billions of babies. There are some decent rat jokes (“What do you want, a cartwheel? I’ve got tiny arms!”), but the best part is the way it makes the loneliness and exhausting competitiveness of the city feel all too human. B+
