SUMMARY: The cows working at a big corporation are
content to keep their heads down and work hard for Mr. Jackson,
but Johnny the Bull has just seen a bullfight, and was
transfixed. The others warn Johnny not to make waves, but
their caution is for naught as two of their number are casually
led to slaughter by Mr. Jackson and replaced by clueless
newcomers. An increasingly agitated Johnny relates how
when he was a kid, he wanted to grow up to be a kitten - and his
parents encouraged him, instead of telling him the truth: that
he was NEVER going to be a kitten. Enraged and frustrated
with his life, Johnny loses control and gores Mr. Jackson.
But suddenly, the matador he was obsessing over with arrives,
and hypnotically lures Johnny away with him to the ring, where
the matador promises him that he'll no longer be anonymous...
everybody will be screaming his name.
SUMMARY: Johnny is now a prisoner of the bullfight,
but he doesn't see it that way. Oblivious to the suffering
and broken souls all around him, Johnny is excited that he's
going to be getting paid to kill stuff. As he rants, a
despairing bull named Max who is next up in the ring repeatedly
attempts to make out his will, while the Matador breaks the
spirit of a wild horse, who joins his fellow horses as fanatical
religious devotees of the Matador. Johnny's rantings- or
is it one last attempt to deny his impending doom? - finally
fire up Max, who charges into the bullfight with one last burst
of fiery spirit. But, as reported by the Matador's
way-too-faithful dog, Lucky, Max is quickly killed.
Stunned, Johnny sits down, quiet and still for the first time
since arriving... and begins to make out his will.
SUMMARY: The bullfight begins, and the Matador
expertly gets under Johnny's skin, berating him and stoking both
his anger and his feelings of worthlessness... and each round
is, perversely, punctuated by cheerful commercial advertisements
from the ring's Announcer. The Matador stabs Johnny
several times, and is ready for the kill... when suddenly,
Johnny changes the game by looking the Matador in the eye.
They never look him in the eye. Suddenly and improbably,
Johnny has the upper hand and manages to gore the Matador...
much to the shock of the Announcer.
SUMMARY: Johnny is taken to live out the rest of
his days in alleged comfort at a nursing home for animals.
However, an animal revolution is brewing, inspired by Johnny's
triumph over the Matador. The Exec in charge at the rest
home offers Johnny a contract: he can live out his days in
comfort... in exchange for lying low and not making any
inflammatory statements or taking any political actions.
Suddenly, Parker bursts in; inspired by Johnny, he's wild again.
Johnny is confused over all the attenion, protesting that he's
just an asshole... but when he sees the brutal conditions at the
nursing home, and his ego ultimately buoyed by the other animals
now looking to him for inspiration, Johnny rejects the contract and embraces his new role as a

EPISODE FIVE (7/5/14)
- PLAYOFFS WEEK 4!
SUMMARY: Johnny leads the animals in rounding up
the humans, but Johnny's bluster has unintended consequences as
the revolution turns violent. Orders to keep the humans
alive are initially obeyed, but the animals' anger soon bubbles
over and a mass slaughter begins. When Johnny tries to put
a stop to it, he finds his role as leader is no longer
respected, and his own life is in danger. As the mindless
Sheep bay for blood, Johnny rescues a clueless, overprivileged
human couple, and steels himself to combat the revolution he
