The Lyrics

The 1993 series "Manimal" with Dr. Jonathan Chase who can change into any animal. With the help of his friend Ty and aiding Police Detective Brooke Mackenzie, the trio use his powers to track down and snare baddies. It lasted 7 episodes!!!
Dr. Jonathan Chase is a really rich guy
A shape-shifter with lots of time
Can change into a hawk, panther, a bull
Which is all quite amazing

Ty knows that the doctor is smart
Needs to get into a fight
Brooke pushes him into the danger zone
Police Detective knows it's crazy

Snap! Another form comes to life
Whatever he desires
Flies higher, is stronger than any thug can be

He's the Manimal, Manimal changing form
And he's way better than your city cop norm
He's the Manimal, Manimal who re-forms
No one ever knows just what's in store

... panther, hawk, bull, bear, snake, more...

A different type of humanity
Transformation glee
Physiological mystery
Use it, hold it to compete

The form he selects works every time
With a roar or assault from the sky
At full speed, a charge, a swipe, a dive
Hunting by day or night
No crook that he can't beat
With his animal instincts
Brooke and Ty are there with him


Growl, growl
Shriek, shriek

As a hawk with sharpest eyes
Or a panther tracking liars
Every case he solves with ease

I remember watching the first gymnast in Olympic history from Bosnia Hercegovina. When it came time to do her floor exercise she chose the song "Bosniac" by Mihkail Sembelov ........ She's a Bosniac, BOS-niac on the floor ... And she's tumbling like she never did before

Thanks guys! And Porfle, despite being rated at the time One of the Worst 100 Shows of All-Time, a new big screen movie is being considered! Sony live action/CGI with Will Ferrell starring since 2014. Glen A. Larson as executive producer.
