Creature Comforts

Show Summary

The makers of Wallace & Gromit bring you this collection of animated film shorts, which takes audio interviews of people on the street and uses them as voice tracks for stop-motion animals. Based on the hit British series of the same name, Creature Comforts will be the first animated series on CBS in thirteen years.

The British series began airing on cable network BBC America in December of 2005, introducing U.S. audiences to the Annecy Award-winning plasticine comedy.

  • WTF???

    OMG, this is one of the weirdest shows ever! The concept is cool & in theory it works but then again, so does communism! I thought this would be a cute show but it's more like a 30 minute e-harmony commercial but kind of perverted & with animals. It was creative but the delivery was very poor. I was really disappointed in this show.



    The best part(s) of the show was the little lizard telling jokes. When he told the joke about the patient w/a sore throat & it got no laugh & all you could hear were crickets & then he ate the cricket, now that was funny!moreless
  • Another prime example of why the major networks should stick to airing reruns during the summer off-season.

    Some people think that no matter how a show turns out, if it is a remake of a past or existing franchise that was decent, then it must turn out decent. Scratch that theory. This show, which uses stop-motion animals as its stars and randomly recorded street dialogue as its audio, might actually be funny if the episodes had a theme of some sort, instead of just being a poorly put-together show of completely random segments. It seems like the show’s just trying to fill its timeslot, not actually making a point to … well, make a point. Oh and also, conceptually, it doesn’t really work out that well, because the end product really isn’t all that funny.moreless

    Great show! I really hope it catches on. I came across creature comforts about 10 years ago when I found a DVD they did(I think in 1992). It's definitly a feel good comedy show. If gives you the choice to look at it in two different ways. One you can see what the character is saying in relation to what the animal looks like or think that hey this is a real person saying this as a person not an animal. Check it out and keep an open mind. In a world where crap like american idol is number 1 this show is quite refreshing.moreless
  • Creature Comforts gives us interviews with ordinary American people and puts their voices on stop-motion animated animals.

    This show comes from the makers of "Wallace & Grommit" and Chicken Run.



    The stop-motion animation is as stunning as ever, with expressions and emotions that are closer to reality than most CGI.



    The thing I admire most about this show is how they make you feel that it's actualy the animals that are giving the interview.

    Because of this, one really has to wonder who gave the original interviews.



    Next to all of this I just HAVE to contratulate the makers on their art, because the animals look great!(I would love to have one of those bees)



    In closing, I've noticed that a lot of people have bashed on this show. This show is just in it's first stages of airing, so just give it a little time!moreless
  • It's far too cerebral for the average American viewer. Which is unfortunate, because it's as brilliant in the U.S. incarnation as it was in the original U.K. version.

    I am an American viewer that understands the humor and the premise of the show. I'm also someone that understands that it's not supposed to be an animal slapstick romp, like most people instantly assume because of Aardman's films like Chicken Run; Wallace & Gromit; and Flushed Away.



    And as an American viewer that understands all of this, I can say that the show is a perfect replication of the original.



    It's unfortunate that the average audience member in the U.S. isn't willing to settle for anything that isn't instant laugh-out-loud punchlines and prat falls. This isn't just some show you can sit down with and expect to have a joke handed to you. You're expected to actually use your intelligence in participation with what is being portrayed on the screen.



    The show is a clever and intimate documentary-based look into the minds of everyday people, only in the form of stop-motion clay animation. The animals that are selected to represent the interviewees are aptly chosen based on their comments, personality, and demeanor. Discussions include, but are not limited to topics such as childhood fantasies, love lives, and ultimately sex lives.



    The animation is as wonderful and whimsical as anything else for which Aardman is known. But don't let your expectations mislead you. This show isn't for children, in the same sense that classics like Looney Tunes; The Simpsons; and Aardman's own Wallace & Gromit, were never meant for young audiences.



    It's somewhat of an alien concept for the American public to maintain a level of intelligence when watching a primetime comedy, but to dismiss this show simply because the funny isn't being piped directly into one's head is to miss out on a seriously entertaining and often profound experience.moreless
