CBS orders up American version of Creature Comforts

creature comforts cbsI am totally getting a kick out of the claymation Creature Comforts on BBC America, so it's nice to see that we're getting our own version in America. The show pairs real-life interviews with claymation animals. So, you get some pretty funny audio about everything from relationships to movies, placed in the mouths of everything from pigs to birds. Just like the British version, the American show will be produced by Wallace and Gromit creators Aardman Animations. CBS ordered 7 half-hour episodes for midseason 2006-2007.

I wonder if they will change the look of the characters for the American version? Specifically, the toothy overbite. For some reason, that works really well with the British accent. Hopefully they'll find a way to make these characters distinctly American.

This is brilliant news. I love all of Aardman's work and have recetly finished watching the second UK season. I think it'll be interesting as well as entertaining to see an American version and it'll be good to have lots of new characters. And the American episodes are going to be half an hour long whereas the UK episodes are only 10 minutes long (apart from the excellent 2005 30 minute Christmas episode). Roll on 2007.

I really love this claymation show. It is amazing how they can do that. I am not very up on how the movie industry works, but they sure have a great imagination.
Hope not to miss any of the up coming shows. Thanks for the great entertainment.
