Western Animation: Animal Mechanicals
Mechana can we do it? We animal mechanical can!
An adventure series for preschoolers, Animal Mechanicals presents us to a place like no other, a "snap-together-take-apart" world were everything transforms.In this world the Animal Mechanicals; Rex, Unicorn, Komodo, Mouse and Sasquatch, are faced each day with a new mission from Island Owl, and are sent to help the inhabitants of their world. Each adventure has a variety of small challenges to overcome on the road to "Mission Accomplished". The challenges vary requiring the Animal Mechanicals to use their wide array of unique transforming "Mechana" abilities to finish the job.No, this has nothing to do with Marilyn Manson. Thankfully.
