Go To

A cartoon created by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer for First-Run Syndication in 1998. It starred an animated version of MGM's lion mascot, Leo (voiced by William H. Macy), with a wife named Lana (Peri Gilpin), and kids named Kate, Spencer and Judy. The show lasted for 13 episodes.

The whole series was available on Hulu until 2014, and can be currently found on YouTube.


  • Action Mom: As a former circus performer, Lana is very athletic. The first episode alone has her swinging on a trapeze just to capture a spider.
  • Awkward Father-Son Bonding Activity: Part of the plot to the first episode involves Leo trying to find something that he and Spencer can do together, resulting in many of these.
  • Barefoot Cartoon Animal: Lana and Judy wear full outfits without shoes.
  • Prehensile Tail: On account of her being athletic, Lana can use the tassel of her tail to grab things.
