I Am Weasel was an American animated television series, created by David Feiss and broadcast on the Cartoon Network.

I Am Weasel was originally a part of the Cow and Chicken show, often airing as the middle of three segments, in between two Cow and Chicken segments. ("The Ugliest Weenie", a two-part Cow and Chicken story, even made reference to the I Am Weasel cartoon interrupting the storyline.) Eventually, I Am Weasel was spun off into its own series, airing between 1997 and 2001, with both new episodes and the episodes that had aired on Cow and Chicken included in that series (much like how Pinky and the Brain was spun off from Animaniacs).

The series usually consists of two anthropomorphic animal characters: I. M. Weasel and I. R. Baboon. Both characters' species are as suggested by their names. Anthropomorphism, also referred to as personification or prosopopeia, is the attribution of human characteristics to inanimate objects, animals, forces of nature, and others. ...

I. M. Weasel is highly intelligent, and is skilled in most if not all known professions, anything from electronics and engineering to medicine and philosophy; he is also incredibly charming and well-versed in the social graces, and will often have a pretty girl named Loulabelle at his side (a recurring character, usually dressed as a nurse). Weasel's only real flaw is a secret desire to suck the yolk from eggs (though such behavior is actually a characteristic of the mongoose family, which is of a different order of mammals than weasels). He is usually the only successful character in a given episode. The standard image of Weasel wears no clothing, though he will often don outfits appropriate to his activities (such as a lab coat when working as a doctor or scientist). He is prone to declaring "I am Weasel!" before leaping into a situation. This article is about the engineering discipline. ...

In contrast, I. R. Baboon is considered dim-witted and slovenly, uses incorrect grammar when he speaks (for example, I. R. stands for "I are"), and is very envious of Weasel's success. He is often shown doing the opposite of what would be considered sensible, and sometimes displays obsessive-compulsive behavior (as when he was determined to plug every hole in the world). I. R. Baboon has few skills (either social or practical), but was discovered unexpectedly to be a virtuoso on the theremin (apart from the fact that the theremin is faulty and causes earthquakes when it is played) he is also talented in oil painting. Baboon wears only a T-shirt with a handwritten, inverted "I. R." (as suggested in the opening video); his protruding red butt is often highlighted (as in the episode I Are Terraformer when he wore a spacesuit and there were two separate bubbles on the rear for his buttocks), and serves as a focus of others' ridicule. He attempts to outdo Weasel at everything, and when he believes he has succeeded, he performs a routine victory dance, placing his hands on his hips and jumping around in a circle while repeatedly chanting a declaration of his success. In some of the episodes, Weasel and Baboon are actually friends and work together. For other things named OCD, see OCD (disambiguation). ...

Episodes usually star only Weasel and Baboon, but later episodes, beginning in 1998, usually have The Red Guy included, too. As in Cow and Chicken, The Red Guy plays a devil-like character, but I Am Weasel also grants The Red Guy a new catch phrase: "Hello!! It's me!", usually followed by his identity in that particular episode. The othe Cow & Chicken charcters also appear in some episodes. Year 1998 (MCMXCVIII) was a common year starting on Thursday (link will display full 1998 Gregorian calendar). ...
