Plus: animation news.
I am old enough to remember Creature Comforts and Wallace and Gromit coming onto network TV for the first time and being blown away by how the dialogue drove the animation. Peter Sallis was the perfect voice for Wallace w, without a doubt. Creature Comforts was the same but with a more improv' style which worked again. Thanks for another brilliant piece.
I have to go back and look up the Creature Comforts episodes. I feel like I used to watch them with friends in high school but it's time to revisit them now.
The Heat Electric ads were huge in my childhood! When one came on TV whoever saw it would shout and all the other siblings would come running to see it.
Thank you so much for this. I remember watching "Creature Comforts" the short back when it won, and seeing it again made me smile. The series is brilliant, and they are all on YouTube in the Aardman channel. I suppose they make money off of the ads.
