    A comfortable hit!

    Who'd have thought that lightning could strike thrice?

    Back in 1991, Nick Park and the Aardman team surprised and delighted
    us with their Oscar-winning film depicting a series of vox-pops with
    enunciating animals, whose dialogue was lifted directly from the street.
    It spawned an equally-successful advertising spin-off, and then, a decade
    later a brand-new series arrived on ITV.

    But third time around, there was a subtle shift in tone. Rather than
    concentrate on the over-bites and expression, the tv series dropped
    in on an array of ever-more incredible critters, in ever-more ludicrous
    scenarios. We moved from sofa-dwelling cats and dogs to seaside
    flotsam, single-cells organisms, extra-terrestrials and beyond.
    And yet, however outlandish the creature or location, they all had
    an instant familiarity and 8.5m of us tuned in to watch the animated

    But if series one of "Creature Comforts" was a hoot, well, watch out
    for a fourth lightning strike, because series two is even better, as we
    roam the globe, and discover if bald eagles ever feel self-conscious,
    what makes pigs feel sexy, and what exactly, do our furry friends
    make of our Christmas festivities?

    "Creature Comforts Series II" is released on DVD, 6th November 2006
     and episodes in the box-set include:

   • Beast in Show    
Animals in the 'Hood      Bed Time
The Brood          Sport!                        • Self Image
Pet Hates           Monarchy Business      • Communication
Impressions        Animal Magnetism        • Safari Park

   + half-hour bonus Merry Christmas Everybody.

The Hound says...
     "Here's a Great British toon made for, and by, the Great British public...
      We've all met a Tom or a Witney, or Behzed or Trixie... Which suggests
      that - from an evoloutionary perspective - we're just half-a-step away
      from the plasticene era!..."
