I'm in awe of how well the animator paid attention to how a mouth moves when the voice is accented or has an impediment.
Creature Comforts is a classic Aardman series based on the Oscar winning short film by Nick Park featuring the real and unscripted voices of the great British public put in the mouths of animals made of modelling clay.
A series of interviews with the animals in an English zoo. Used to open spaces and sunnier climes, they comment on accommodation, diet and of course - the English weather.
Damn. That ©1989 at the end. No clue that it was that old
That mountain lion is the best.
"you need 'de space" has been a family meme for a good decade
I'm Brazilian and I've been living abroad for a while. I'm very self-conscious about my accent when speaking English, especially when I'm among native speakers. The mountain lion from Creature Comforts has haunted me for a long time, I always think about it when I feel I am not pronouncing things properly.
i neeeeed ehsssssspaaaaacceeeee
and FRESH meat
The animation on the Lion is absolutely fantastic, the gesticulation and the eyes are perfect. I loved creature comforts when it was on TV a few years ago, can't believe it's so old! (For some reason, my flatmate and I always fell asleep when we watched the DVD)
In our house we are completely unable to talk about needing more room with talking "de SPACE!"
anybody else here seen "Not Without My Handbag"? Scared the shit out of 6 y/o me
I had an aardman vhs as a kid that was sort of a showreel of their work, this was one of my favourite things, and the video to ‘sledgehammer’ by Peter Gabriel
There was also some weeeeeeeird stuff on that video, really surreal and unsettling
Edit: Ident is the one I’m thinking of, can’t bring myself to watch it due to it rustling my childhood jimmies
