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:

Here's the email I sent to all the above, plus the feedback link:
Feel free to copy and paste this and send it in too!

I have to tell you that I do NOT watch CBS. For whatever reason, there just were not shows that you offered that held any interest for me. So when a friend mentioned how funny Creature Comforts was, I was surprised to learn it was run by CBS and that it was created by the same folks who created Wallace & Gromit. We are Wallace & Gromit fans from way back before their main movie was out, so I was excited to see this new show. The entire family laughed SO hard at this, and we felt it was one of the funniest and most original shows we had seen in many years. Now today we find that it was cancelled, after having set our DVR to tape every episode. You are making an enormous mistake cancelling this series, as I personally will not come back to your network to watch any of your other offerings, in which I have zero interest. The show which you are using to replace Creature Comforts doesn't even bear mentioning as it is mind-numbingly annoying. PLEASE bring back the original show that is hilarious. Even if not many people know about it right now, if you try some advertising or getting the show out there (pre-movie commercials in theaters would be a great avenue) you will bring in the viewers!!!

They are replacing it with "Big Bang Theory" which is nothing more than a Beauty and the Geek rip off. Sad ... just sad. God forbid there is any inkling of imagination in the "entertainment" industry.

My closest friends in the world are characters on your show, they are the "Fargo Flies" from Minnesota - Kelly & Scott. I am going to fight & complain to get the show back ! I love it! Here is a copy of my complaint that I sent to CBS & the list of CBS employees mentioned in the top of the page! DON'T LEAVE THE COVERS OFF THE PLAY-DOUGH CONTAINERS YET!
"Please don't cancel Creature Comforts!!! It was a refreshingly funny show for the summer, you didn't even give it a chance!!! Seriously, there are shows that are left on the air that are less funny, but no, the funny show gets cancelled! Today's audience is getting sick of the sitcom comedy shows - they are getting redundant. Creature Comforts takes REAL people, not actors, REAL interviews & geniously puts it together with claymation. Then puts them in HILARIOUS scenes of animals if they could talk - that make it even more hilarious. This isn't stand up comedian jokes anymore, this is humorous & amusing. Give the show the go ahead & at least run the rest of the episodes that were made. Hey, it's a dog eat dog world out there, but the people who cancelled the show were just as bad as the pile of poo the dog made after it ate the other dog!"

Wow, it looks like I'm back to regarding CBS as being the lamest network around. Pulling Creature Comforts is unbelievable. I was suprised such a cool, funny show was on CBS to begin with! What a drag.

CBS pulls Creature Comforts - Help bring back tv's greatest comedy series!

This series is touching; some wonderfully delicate moments are captured in the interviews. The whimsical animation is a credit to animators who are both kind and goofy.

In some instances, I'm totally interested in hearing more of the actual interview. The performance of the Gospel choir from Ep. 2, for example, is most excellent, and the series certainly has me wishing that I'd had the opportunity to hear the whole rendition of Come Fly Away.

Great job, and I hope the series does well on DVD.

I caught the last episode - first time I'd seen it. I was so excited because it was so good - I watched everything I could find on the CBS website and youtube until the following Monday - when I couldn't believe it was no longer there! There is so little worth watching on TV, and this gem is cancelled?! My letter's going out today to CBS. Sigh.

I too was extremely disappointed to see a creative and entertaining program like Creature Comforts taken off the air. I am so sick of moronic "reality tv" programs, the same assinine sitcoms, and the million and one crime programs that are offered, that when I saw the first airing of this program I was thrilled to find something so funny and creative finally on the air. I am not sure why it was canceled. Granted, there were some topics that you just knew the "moral minority" were going to have a fit about being shown at the begining of the primetime lineup. But that could have been solved by moving it back an hour. If those in charge of the scheduling at CBS don't bring the program back, I hope one of the other networks has the intelligence to see this program for the GEM it truly is.

May be too late, but I just got here... Sent the following today.

"Hello, I'm writing in regards to Creature Comforts.
I would love to see this show aired. I see, from my limited research today, that I'm not the only one.
I had no idea this show existed until today, but when I found it, I was ecstatic. I then was equally diappointed when I found it had been cancelled before I could even enjoy it. I am a huge fan of the creators, and was actually looking up more media by them when I ran across this show. I'm very disappointed that it didn't seem to get any press, and that may have been the cause of the lower than stellar ratings it received. The fact that I had never even heard of it seems to show that it was not marketed to the fullest extent it should have been. This is a horrible travesty.
The clips I've been able to see online show that it's smart, funny, and though not a traditional sitcom or reality show, a breath of fresh air in the craziness that seems to be the current climate.
I think at minimum, you should air the remaining episodes of this show.
Thanks,"
