Yo-ho, yo-ho, a pirate's life for thee! "Pirate Master" brings 16 modern-day pirates together on one pirate ship for a high seas adventure around the Caribbean island of Dominica in search of a $1 million hidden treasure. (Watch a preview clip.) The buccaneers will spend 33 days aboard a gigantic 179-foot ship, where they will participate in expeditions requiring them to decipher clues. The gold coins they earn on these expeditions can be used to barter with each other to stay on the ship longer. Each week, the pirate that earns the most riches will be named the ship's captain and given the power to assign roles and chores to the rest of the shipmates. Such power may lead to betrayal, sabotage and even mutiny by the deck crew. During Pirate's Court, one individual will have to walk the plank. By day 33, the last pirate aboard the ship will win the largest booty, worth $500,000, and will of course become the "Pirate Master" -– captain or not. more

Originating from across the pond, "Creature Comforts" is a one-of-a-kind stop-motion animated series. The half-hour series takes excerpts from real-life interviews and places them in the mouths of various animated animals. The unique combination results in funny, charming and insightful commentaries on people's everyday lives. Interviews are done with hundreds of ordinary Americans that cover a wide-range of subjects. True stories and open thoughts are shared through animals, insects and other non-human species. In upcoming episodes, a pair of lovebirds portrays an old married couple listing their numerous ailments and a pair of dogs compare their height differences. This is definitely animation that'll surprise, amuse, and even move you.
There's a few others, but not worth cut-n-pasting, imo.
