This page is about the animation. There is also a 1997 magazine article called Creature Comforts.

Creature Comforts is a Academy Award winning short made by Nick Park at Aardman Animations in 1990 before the Wallace and Gromit series. The basis of the show was that members of the British public were interviewed and then their voices characterised into talking animals which were then plasticine animated, leading to comical appearances.

The creatures reappeared later as part of an advertising campaign by Heat Electric, advertising the benefits of electrical heating. The popularity of the series, characters, and adverts led to a longer TV series of the same name (with the help of Richard ("Golly") Goleszowski, the creator of Robbie The Reindeer and Rex the Runt). The new series premiered on the British television network ITV in 2003.

The TV show was nominated for a BAFTA and won 2 awards at the Chicago International Children's Film Festival, the Adult's Jury Award and the Children's Jury Award. The show also won a Audience Award from the Florida Film Festival.

The DVD of the new series was released in America on September 27, 2005. An even newer series is due to air on ITV, starting October 30, 2005.
