NEW YORK, Dec. 13 (UPI) -- BBC Worldwide America said Monday the first two seasons of its British puppet comedy series "Mongrels" are now available on America's Hulu Web site.

"This series is a multi-layered, bold comedy with cutting-edge appeal -- a perfect fit for Hulu's audience," Beth Clearfield, senior vice president of digital distribution and business development for BBC Worldwide Americas, said in a statement.

The producers describe "Mongrels" as "definitely not one for the kids, though adults may find it scarily familiar."

"Join Nelson the metrosexual fox, Destiny the pampered pooch, Marion the slow-brained former housecat, Kali the sarcastic pigeon, and Vince the most ferocious fox in town, as they negotiate life and love in the back alleys of the urban jungle," a synopsis said. "They may be furry, they may be feathered, they may be feral, but scratch their hairy surfaces and you'll find five mixed-up animal urban singles struggling with everyday emotional truths about life, love, sex, aspirations, and shattered dreams."
