Miles ahead of American animation. It's so.......funny.
If I were to talk to my cat, I'd like to hear her sound kind of like the animals in this show. So profound sounding. So funny, the way they talk to bird about fears of heights and have a French Bull dog argue about who's the better pet with Stick Insects. The dog says "Have you seen my stick impression? Yes." taunting the bug. "We-well a dog, it's just stupid. What'r you gonna do with a stupid stupid dog?" the insect replies. It's witty. It's funny. It's British humor. And it's from Aardman, the guys behind Wallace and Gromit. This is claymation at it's best. The series is worth checking out. It drags from time to time, but this left me laughing.
