In the far future, carnivores have managed to drive the human race off of planet Earth into the stars, leaving their cities behind to be populated by various strange creatures. This short series follows the two of them as they try to find their next meal, which they are surprisingly bad at considering the series back story..
This cgi slapstick series ran on Cartoon Network (namely on Short Break) and eventually also on the 3DS Nintendo Video service. Each episode details the two odd carnivores, Yans and Gans, trying and failing to catch and eat a specific and equally odd creature they come across. Hilarity Ensues.
- Those Two Bad Guys: Yans (the tall blue one) and Gans (the short red one). With the various duo-centric tropes it entails:
- Not-So-Harmless Villain: The Leads are shown to be incompetent bumblers whenever they attempt to hunt something, but somehow they were enough of a threat that humans had to take to the stars to avoid them.
- Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist: When you consider the backstory and their general bad attitudes, its tough for one to feel bad for Yans and Gans starving to the point of hallucinations, sticking themselves with spikes, or being shot at by humans with Star Wars-esque lasers and falling back to earth in a burning heap.
- "Could Have Avoided This!" Plot: Ultimately, all of the difficulties Yans and Gans suffer through is because they love meat far too much for their own good, driving away their food scource (humans) and having to deal with more creatures whose physical attributes and survival instinct exceed theirs. They have been shown to be somewhat omnivorous, as Yans attempts to eat a flower at least twice, but Gans is fiercely opposed to eating plants.
