Creature Comforts was originally a short film produced by Nick Park and Aardman Animations showcasing animals in the zoo in a documentary-style series of interviews about their living conditions. The actual interviews were conducted with residents of a senior’s home and a housing estate, offering poignant, unscripted views on life and space, which were then complemented by stop-motion claymation, giving each interviewee an animal persona.
This later spin-off is an episode of the TV series Creature Comforts, in which interviewees discuss their eating habits. It’s a tongue-in-cheek look at the way we carry out our lives and the thoughts we have about our own behaviours. Enjoy!
If you just can’t get enough, here’s a seasonal Creature Comforts clip for your viewing pleasure as well! Happy holidays – may they be merry and mindful!
