What Is Art

Aardman Animations, the studio that produces the work of award-winning British animator Nick Park, produced a show for CBS called Creature Comforts which was unfortunately pulled after just 3 episodes. In the show, ordinary Americans were interviewed on various topics and their responses placed into the mouths of a variety of animated animals and insects. Below is a 7-minute clip titled "What Is Art?" Please take special note of the Printmaker!

That's started my day with a big smile Annie, thanks! The printmaker sounds so cool!

What a shame the series didn't take off in the US. Nick Park is a genius! We were laughing at the British version of these in the 1980s and for years afterwards British Gas (I think) ran adverts on the same lines.

Thanks Annie for sharing this! I'm a huge Nick Park fan - he's a master of subtle humor.

Aha! Creature Comforts runs almost non-stop over here (in the UK) at Christmas on one channel or another.
