Storyline

Stop-motion animated series with a cast of animals, sound-biting on a specific topic each episode, such as creatures' sporting adventures, Christmas, and visits to veterinarians. The show satirizes modern man on the street and documentary interviews, responding to unseen questioners. The voices of the characters, such as recurring dog and cat duo Trixie and Captain Cuddlepuss, are supplied by everyday people speaking varied regional accents, credited as The Great British Public. The creatures are portrayed in their own habitats. Creature Comforts was originally a short film, then a series of highly popular commercials, later a U.S. series. Written by David Stevens

Nigel the Slug: A burning bush.
Gary the Slug: A burning bush it's called, and basically it goes green and when it dies, it goes to die off it goes completely brilliant red.

highly original, check it out
4 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had been a fan of Wallace and Gromit and the original Creature Comforts short for ten years when I stumbled across the first season DVD of the SERIES Creature Comforts on amazon.com. I, of course, promptly bought it and this series is remarkable.

These characters had me laughing, in fact I had to pause it a few times so I wouldn't miss anything. The conversations are brilliant. I especially love it when the animals will discuss certain anxieties like in the bird episode when the crows are talking about the fear of heights or when the iguana at the pet shop is lamenting about when her friends are plucked away and never seen again.

My favorite characters are Terry the octopus (that ice cream cone!), the pigs, the racing greyhound, that crazy blackbird and the wise hound. But I'm sorry, Edward the woodpecker blows them all away! His mannerisms are downright hysterical. Sometimes the creatures' conversations are funny, sometimes they're a little sad, but all of them have soul. Pick up the DVD if you haven't yet.
