Animation Celebration

First of all, a big thank you to everyone who has been supporting the show and making their thoughts known to CBS. Some shows that get pulled from TV quickly fade from peoples' consciousness but it's clear that the fans of Creature Comforts are passionate and are not going to forget about this very special show.

Last weekend our executive producer, Kit Boss, presented an unaired episode at the Platform International Animation Festival in Portland. Kit was joined by Aardman founders Peter Lord and David Sproxton, as well as two American animators from Creature Comforts- Teresa Drilling (animated the pigs, and contributes to our blog) and Juliana Cox (animated the racoon, buttsniffer dogs, and others). I wish I could have been there, but luckily Kit sent along pictures. The first is the crowd (pretty good for 9:30 AM on a Saturday) and the next features Kit alongside festival volunteer Kit Vohs- who's name in Spanish is pronounced Kit Boss!
