If you're new to Creature Comforts, the British comedy series by Aardman
Animation (the Wallace and Gromit people) puts the words of "The Great
British Public" (human interview subjects) into the words of plasticine,
animated animals. The animated commentary is presented in short takes. The
result's a little bit absurd and, when it's at its best, hilarious.
The 24-minute episode is framed around attempts to recall "The Twelve Days of
Christmas." You know, five lords-a-leaping over three geese a laying a
partridge in a pear pie. Maybe not. Some of the interview subjects don't do
much better than that, though. Along the way, you'll get treated to
observations like "If you opened the door and there was four birds calling,
you'd say, 'Who sent you?'" (courtesy of favorite Aardman cat Captain
Cuddlepuss) and gags like three French hens singing in French. There's a
touch of cute, since a bird's the one who gets the song about French hens,
calling birds, turtle doves, and partridges right, but just a touch. This is
the crazy world of Creature Comforts, after all.
