I'm 99% sure, "Word Party," is set in a post-apocalyptic future. I believe these animal-human hybrids were being created in some kind of, "Hatchery," to be used as weapons of war (much like the comic, "Elephantmen,"), but the world ended in fiery destruction leaving behind basically no life besides some hatchery-babies that were forgotten about, born/came out of special womb-simulating machines, and now live in an idyllic-yet-lonely facility while the outside world burns. The robots are still around, doing the tasks they were programmed to do with or without human input, in a manner reminiscent of, "There Will Come Soft Rains," a thoughtful and depressing short-story written by Ray Bradbury. The only humans we ever witness are ones in little videos or pictures the baby-animals watch on a robo-screen to assist them in learning--old leftover files created when outside life still existed. I would assume the unseen narrator is herself an A.I. dutifully teaching the animal-babies in order to prepare them to enter a world that the AI is unaware has long since ended, beaming her directives over speakers.

I know I've said before how I hate wacky fan-theories for television shows, and I myself am indulging in one here, so yes, mea culpa. Still, hasn't anyone else ever tuned-in to something and found themselves infuriated enough by plot-holes they start concocting elaborate explanations to satisfy their own curiosity? I mean, it can't be just me and this guy who tried to solve the infamous Tori Paradox from, "Saved by the Bell," right? I may sound crazy, but if, "Word Party," wants to refuse to give us any context for its world of animal-human hybrids and robots, I'm just going to come-up with an explanation myself.
