We're having a HOOT of a time watching the Oscar-winning British
series "Creature Comforts" produced by Nick Park/Aardman studios.
If you love stop-motion clay animation and Wallace and Grommit,
you'll get a kick out of “Creature Comforts” and seeing the quirky,
spot-on interpretations of the voices of everyday British folk character-
ized into animals.
My favorite is the voice of this ol' Welsh fellow turned into a
wrinkly old Shar-pei dog with his puppy who likes to workout to
Jane Fonda videos (series II). Each episode has a theme the animals
follow and the humor is often dry and filled with British colloquialisms —
both of which I love since I’m an anglophile and my hubby is Welsh.
Punky Rowan loves this stuff too. Her favorite characters are: one
existential hamster; a leisurely, lackadaisical husband and wife cat
and dog; some chatty Welsh seagulls, and a jaguar covered in
bandages at the vet’s.
(Rent these from Netflix or watch a few on YouTube and get set
to giggle uncontrollably!)
