Clay Pigeons (And Other Critters)
Did anybody see the Americanized Creature Comforts on CBS? Did anything in that preceding sentence make sense? I’m a huge fan of the UK edition of this program, along with pretty much anything Nick Park/Aardman does, so personally this was a genuine treat. For those unfamiliar with C.C., they take the recordings of real people talking about a variety of subjects and animate them with funny looking animals mouthing the words. A lot of the reviews I’ve seen for this American version were surprisingly negative. I guess people looking for broad, slapsticky comedy and dumb one-liners are bound to be disappointed, but for the rest of us it’s a subtly funny comment on what makes us human. All that and poo-poo jokes, too.
