There's nothing not to like about Aardman Animations' new Creature Comforts series, belatedly inspired by their Oscar-winning short film and the subsequent spin-off TV ads that turned out to be far more memorable than the product itself ("It's got to be easily turn-off-and-onable"). But if you stop and think about it for a moment, Creature Comforts is an extraordinarily un-PC concept. First of all, identify some members of the public who are willing to drone on about trivia that's really of no interest to anyone but themselves. (Ideally they will be working class and perhaps a bit dim, although it helps if they're over-articulate in the way that dull people often are when someone suddenly feigns an interest in them.) If they have a strong regional accent or are elderly, so much the better. Then sync up their interviews with a bunch of claymation cartoon animals, linking any extraneous noises to improbable snippets of on-screen action. Finally, sit back and watch as the very people you're patronising laugh their heads off at your efforts, thus proving that they were every bit as dim as you thought.

Cynicism aside, though, the ability of the British public to laugh at themselves is a national trait worth celebrating, and it's brilliantly exploited here by the company that brought you Wallace and Gromit. On this first volume you get six episodes, of which perhaps the funniest is "Working Animals", where we learn that egglaying is "very repetitive" and meet the greyhound who can never quite get his latest bit of portentous self-analysis out before the trap opens.

On the DVD: The Creature Comforts Series 1, Part 1 DVD contains just the first six 10-minute episodes of the series. To add value, the disc also includes what is quite literally a making-of documentary, plus the original Creature Comforts short and sundry other items of interest. --Roger Thomas

5.0 out of 5 stars Aardman strikes again 8 Jan 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Absolutely brilliant stuff from the Wallace and Gromit/Chicken Run team. Worth every penny. Bear in mind that this is REAL people being interviewed and then turned into animated animals.
Superb family entertainment.

1.0 out of 5 stars Aardman's Big Mistake 16 Nov 2003
By :(
i was really looking forward to buying this for my mother who really enjoyed it. but only 6 episodes per release?! what are Aardman thinking? actually, i know exactly what they are thinking, "let's milk as much money out of our fans as possible"
i think this is shameful. at less than 10 minutes per episode there is no reason why all the episodes could not have gone on one dvd.
i would have loved to have given this release a 5 star review.
i hope they see sense and put this out as one release sometime in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars British comedy at its best 30 Dec 2003
Brilliant! I've been a fan of Aardman for years, since I was introduced to Wallace and Gromit and the original Creature Comforts short. This series builds on the unique Aardman style, and is extremely funny! So what if there are only 6 episodes? It's a small price to pay for owning some of the best television comedy on DVD. Plus some great extras - what's there to complain about? If you haven't already done so, buy this DVD!
