** One RunningGag has Roy frequently bemoaning that his father never loved him. In "Stage Fright," he tries to get Kelsey Grammer (under the assumption that he's a psychiatrist like his character on ''Series/{{Fraiser}}'') to help him with this and winds up attacking him during a role play.

However, the series was a flop anyway for several reasons. For one, it was very uncomfortable to watch the show with [[RealitySubtext Roy's recent mauling]] in mind. Many airings were repeatedly interrupted by updates on the 2004 presidential election, and by that point, there had been such a glut of advertising that [[HypeAversion audiences were sick of it]]. Plus, the series was too expensive and time-consuming, with each episode costing over 1.5 million dollars to make and over 9 months to complete[[note]]To compare, an average episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' is about ''half'' of that and production is about three months shorter.[[/note]]. Some episodes never aired in the U.S. (with one that was never finished being animated), though the entire series was released on [=DVD=].

Set in Las Vegas, the show depicts the secret lives of the animals who live there. The main characters are the family of white lions ([[BumblingDad father Larry]], mother Kate, [[GranolaGirl teenage daughter Sierra]], [[TheChewToy young son Hunter]], and [[GrumpyOldMan father-in-law Sarmoti]]) that form part of Siegfried and Roy's act. All the other animals in the Secret Garden (S&R's private zoo) basically act as sitcom neighbors.

''Father of the Pride'' is mainly remembered now for being one of the most colossal flops in the history of prime-time animation, which prompted DWA [[OldShame to bury this series deep in their animation archives]], eventually having more success in kids' shows.

* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Sierra wears a black collar, Hunter wears an Elizabethan collar (a cone, in other words), Foo Lin wears a bow on her head, Mr. Right wears a purple bow and collar (in "What's Black and White and Depressed All Over?"), and Kelsey Grammer's cat wears glasses and a red handkerchief (in "Stage Fright"). A few other animals in the show count as this trope as well.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: more than a few lines about Larry "eating" one of the neighbors or Snack's new girlfriend in one case. Cos, y'know, he's a predatory animal living among herbivores and all.
--> Larry: (on a diet) "I can't eat like this! I'm a mighty predator, not Lara Flynn Boyle!... In fact [[UnEntendre I could go for a Lara Flynn Boyle right about now..."]]
** One episode has the female cat's visible reaction when a virile male jaguar drops his towel... never mind that the animals otherwise never wear clothes.
** The above-mentioned "tail" joke from an unaired episode:
--> '''Lily''': "We have to take responsibility for our lives, as well as our orgasms. (Holds up her tail) As long as I have ''this'', I don't need a man!"
--> (Cut to Foo Lin showing off her stubby tail to Kate)
--> '''Foo Lin''' (Quietly): "Story of my life."
