Amazing Animals (also known as Henry's Amazing Animals ) was an educational kid's show produced by Dorling Kindersley and Partridge Films which ran on the Disney Channel from 1996 to 1999. The show was about a lizard named Henry that would teach and show the audience about animals from different time periods, various types of animals, and animals in different climates and locations. The show had many home media releases, but only available on VHS. Each VHS release only had one episode, which lasted for 24 minutes. Most episodes of the show were released on VHS, although some episodes had no media release of any kind. All home media releases of the show are hard to find and remain rare. On May 31st, 2021, the remaining four lost episodes were found, making the entire series accounted for.

Synopsis

The series follows a green lizard named Henry (voiced by Eric Meyers), has taught the audience about animals from different time periods, climates, and locations with the help of an off-screen narrator (voiced by Tom Clarke-Hill in the US airing and Nigel Greaves in the UK). Each episode would also be accompanied by short animated gag segments, often tied to the episode's topic.

Broadcast History

The show also aired in Russia and has a Russian dub. Only the pilot "Tropical Birds" is available in full in Russian. The episode "Animal Records" was found partially in Russian, meaning 51 episodes of the show in Russian are lost due to the show never having a proper home media release in the country. Despite the show's home media release being mostly restricted to VHS, merchandise such as PC games, books, and board games were made.
