The clues are a snake scale with hair, a sabotaged hovercraft, the Zoo financial records and the history of the animal rights activists, the Earth Sentinels.moreless

  • Sherlock Holmes deals with animal rights when the owner of a failing zoo becomes a mutated man-snake in order to steal valuable nanobot technology and saving his failing zoo.

    9.0
    This is an impressive episode because it uses the science fiction theme to deal with bioethics and animal rights. One man has a failing zoo with endangered species while a former friend of his has a more successful zoo with mutated animals. Both men were members of a hardcore animal rights group, but only one is a thief. Which one? Well, if you pay close attention several appropriate clues are dropped along the way. Not many children's cartoons series would attempt to raises the ethical question, without providing a clear answer, as to how far should we go to protect endangered animals?moreless
