[episode - Working Animals]
Lab Mouse 9:
The thing about being in a lab is you're your own boss, you're free to sort of run several things at once and it's a very sociable atmosphere in many labs and ours is a great place to work and in some labs you can have music playing because a lot of what you're doing isn't using your brain at the time.

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.
