[episode - The Sea]
I was scared of the sea because it was really big and I was really little, and it was just really huge and it was cold and it was unpredictable and, you know, you'd get splashed and knocked over and I got dumped a few times by the waves and I didn't like that at all, not one bit, and it would be all in my eyes, and no it wasn't very nice but once I learned to swim, I was much happier and now I can't wait, I'll always go swimming in the sea now.

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.
