Welcome to the unofficial Pets shrine. This cult series was originally produced for Channel 4 in 2001, by Fit2Fill Productions at Elstree Millennium Studios, and the show’s mortal remains are now lovingly preserved here, on the web site of Sowerby & Luff.
“Consistently superb writing” THE GUARDIAN
Among the numerous holy relics you will find are links to every single episode of both series of Pets – each one lovingly remastered and colour graded for YouTube at full broadcast resolution in delicious 16:9 widescreen. There’s also a gratuitous look behind the scenes, and full cast and crew credits.

Pets looks at the lives of four animals living together in the same rundown house. There’s Hamish, a well spoken red setter who sees himself as something of an intellectual. There’s Trevor, a perverted and foul-mouthed bulldog who’s forever reading porno mags or shagging the furniture. There’s Davina, a Persian blue cat who’s addicted to over the counter medication and is constantly planning to do something very nasty to her boyfriend Vince. Finally, there is JP the parrot, who lost all his feathers in a card game and lives in a tiny little world of his own invention.
There are 26 episodes of Pets, plus a clip show and a “Making of.” The series has been shown in the UK, Australia and Italy – a country in which the puppets became so famous they got their own chat-show on MTV. Pets is finally becoming more popular in the UK, thanks to the series being made widely available to download online. Did I tell you that I like to drink my own urine?
