YMMV: The Future Is Wild


  • Crazy Awesome: The Sharkopaths, super intelligent, super fast and super tough sharks with bioluminescence.
  • Creepy Awesome: The Sharkopaths again.
  • Ear Worm: No doubt you'll be humming that surprisingly catchy theme song after hearing it.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Japan is the franchise's most successful market.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: An actual (extinct) flightless caracara was described in 2008, making the Carakiller this.
    • This series speculates that 200 million years in the future, nearly all land vertebrate life, including humanity, have been rendered extinct and sealife will move to land to fill the void, with squids becoming the new dominant species. Jump 12 years later and out comes a game whose lore has that scenario actually happen.
  • Special Effect Failure: The CGI is really bad. It's still better than that of Animal Armageddon, though that show at least has more realistic-looking fur!
  • Tastes Like Diabetes: The children's series.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Again, the children's series!!
  • Ugly Cute: The Squibbons, Spinks, and Desert Hoppers.
  • Uncanny Valley: The human characters of the children's series.
    • Also, the Babookaris. Their faces look disturbingly human.
  • The Woobie: Poggles. They're so cute. And so tasty for spiders.
    • The scrofa who gets trapped in the salt flats
    • The Rainbow Squid who gets eaten by Sharkopaths.
    • The Shagrat who gets killed by a Snowstalker.
