> Description 
Father of the Pride was an NBC animated series that was only the second CGI series in prime-time network TV. This CGI-animated series is about a family lions and white tigers who work as performers in the Las Vegas act of illusionists Siegfried & Roy.

The show stars Larry, a hard-working father lion along with his wife Kate, a lioness. Sarmoti, another white lion who is Kate's father - and Larry's father-in-law - clashes with Larry on every subject imaginable. It should be noted that the name Sarmoti is actually the acronym S.A.R.M.O.T.I., which stands for Siegfried and Roy: Masters of the Impossible. Their children are Hunter and Sierra. Rounding out the group is Snack, a mischievous gopher and Larry's best friend. The per-episode cost of the series was reportedly $1.6 million and each episode took nine months to create.

In October 2003, tragedy struck the real Siegfried and Roy empire, when Roy Horn was mauled by one of his tigers during a stage show that left Horn in critical condition. Executives at NBC and DreamWorks didn't know whether or not to go on with the show, but both Siegfried and Roy urged the show to move forward in production. When the show debuted in late August 2004, it got off to a good start with strong ratings. The ratings continued to show good promise for the show through early September 2004, until the ratings started to rapidly decline. By early December 2004, Jeffrey Katzenberg, DreamWorks Animation CEO and show creator, announced that the show was cancelled.
