Our Werebeasts Are Different: Live-Action TV
  • Big Wolf on Campus has an episode has, in addition to werewolves, a French exchange student who was a werecat.
  • In Blood Ties, a werejaguar takes revenge on a hunter that kills various types of werebeasts. It is implied that (as in the Blood Books the series was based on) wereism is hereditary, rather than transmitted.
  • Dinosaurs: In an October 31st Episode Robbie scares Baby by telling him a story of becoming a were-caveman.
  • In Grimm there are many people that have both a human form and a "creature" form, which have so far included werewolves, werebears, wereboars, wererats, satyrs, ogres, weresnakes, and weremice. There has been no indication of any limit to what "creatures" could be out there. And it is awesome.
    • Averted in that the "creatures" are not human in the first place and they are simply revealing their true forms when they manifest their animal sides. That is, they don't become the animal; they are already half-animal, half-man and they simply conceal this truth from normal people.
  • Freya on Merlin was a Druid girl cursed to turn into a winged werepanther at the stroke of midnight.
  • Mystery Science Theater 3000: During the episode Werewolf (fittingly enough) Mike gets bit/scratched by Crow and becomes a "were-crow".
  • The Nine Lives of Chloe King. The title character belonged to a race of catpeople.
  • The were-panthers in True Blood.
    • Unlike the books the show is based on, "wereism" is hereditary and cannot be transmitted by a bite. Despite this, Jason is abducted by a group of were-panthers and repeatedly bitten and raped in the hopes of producing viable were-children. Jason stays a human and gets over the rape pretty quickly, although the incident serves as a cataclysm to his relationship with Jessica.
    • The series also shows that werewolves can interbreed with other supernatural beings. Specifically, Sam's Love Interest is a Shifter like him (like werewolves but can turn into any animal), who has a daughter fathered by a werewolf. The mother hopes her daughter will become a Shifter.
