Animorphs (also known under the promotional title AniTV and the working title The Changelings) is a 26-episode television adaptation made by Nickelodeon of the Scholastic book series of the same name. The series was broadcast from September 1998 to March 2000 in the United States and Canada. The episodes lasted about 30 minutes (including commercials), had stereo sound, and closed captions.


The show revolved around a group of teenagers who could transform into animals through contact with them. They used this power to solve mysteries and go on adventures. There was a catch to this power, however. Remaining in animal form for too long resulted in the person remaining an animal permanently. The character Tobias, a hawk, was an example of this.
