Animals and pets are part of our families and they love their owners, unconditionally, through both good and bad times.  The great thing about animals is that they are unfiltered, and their behavior is always in the present moment.  In our new series, WORLD’S FUNNIEST ANIMALS, we share with you, our audience, the funniest, craziest and jaw dropping antics of our furry friends.  My own dogs, Hank and Ruby, my sidekicks and show mascots, join me weekly to watch animal video clips, along with my celebrity guests and panelists who make hilarious commentary.  Please join us.  Let the laugh fest begin!”

Elizabeth Stanton hosts the all-new series, which features celebrity guest panelists who make commentary on animals doing the funniest things ever caught on video.  The series includes viral Internet clips of funny animal moments and hilarious animal clips from major motion pictures and television.  Each week a celebrity guest joins Elizabeth and introduces her to their pets.
