We will not be silenced!

If you want to know what these cats have to say on the topic of Communication, you'll have to make your voices heard by the powers that be at CBS. Creature Comforts was pulled from the schedule but there are still 4 wonderful unaired episodes, along with many animals that have yet to be seen. The feedback we have received about the show has been amazing and we know there are passionate fans out there who are tired of seeing the same old thing on TV. Democracy worked in the campaign to save Jericho so if enough people voice their opinion to CBS, perhaps they will rethink their decision and allow you to see these episodes. Many bloggers have mentioned that Creature Comforts was the only show that brought them to CBS and without it they will not be watching the network again. If you share that feeling, let them know. Here are some ways you can make your voice heard:

Character Parties Continue in Week 2!

Dr. Richard Bay, our painting Gorilla from Virginia, hosted 100 friends for his TV debut! Check out the pictures:

Up on the marquee.

A gorilla's favorite treat!

We love the decor.

A classic dilemma: watch the show, or eat dinner?

Premiere Party Animals- San Francisco

The report back from the party our pugs, Betsy and Ian, had at their interviewer's house in San Francisco? "Best thing I've seen in years."

But of course, "Betsy and Ian were the funniest." Check out the pics!

Betsy and friends watch the show.

Ian gets on the floor to commune with his character.

Kids get in on the fun.

Premiere Party Animals- Pearl

Gosh that's alliterative. Here are some more pics from last night's country-spanning festivities, this time from our mother and daughter pig pair (with so many p's, why stop now?), Nell and Celia.

Nell, Celia, and their interviewer, Larry, who they gifted with a pig figurine.

Larry said of the viewing party, "I wish I had been recording the proceedings - arguments about the TV volume, neighbors over who kept taking cell phone calls throughout the show, the house phone ringing and Nell forbidding James (her husband) from answering it."

Nell and Celia reenact one of their commercials.

Celia told us, "It was great!!! We taped it and re-watched it like 3 times. Larry and his family came over and some friends of Mama's 'unexpectedly' dropped by. Yeah, right. Can't wait for next week!"

CCUSA Premiere Party Animals

For most of us on the Creature Comforts crew, the best part of last night's premiere (after seeing our very fast-moving credit, of course) was wondering what the characters thought of it all. Thanks to a number of our interviewers and interviewees, we don't have to wonder for long! We've got pictures and quotes from the creatures themselves, which I'll be posting as they come in. First up? Our married bees, from New York.

Shock! Excitement! (And there's the Bees' daughter and interviewer, Lu, recording it all as always).

Lu told us: "I'm happy to report my parents really loved seeing themselves. They invited my sister, brother-in-law, his mom, my aunt and a dear friend of the family to watch the premiere."


Lu continued, "My mother swore she would tell NO ONE about the show in case she didn’t like what character she became."


"I think the highlight was when my mother laughed so hard she seemed to stop breathing," says Lu.

Stay tuned for more CCUSA character reactions!
