Amusing Monday: Animals Save the Planet

I have to admit a certain fondness for the clay animated creatures that have come to life thanks to Aardman Animations, which has fostered a bunch of creative animations, including Wallace & Gromit.

Since this is the week of Earth Day, I thought I would present the series of Earth-friendly tips offered by some strange but lovable animals. The short videos were produced for Animal Planet in the UK, and I’m not sure if they were shown in the U.S.

Aardman Animations, started by Peter Lord and David Sproxton, has an interesting history. Starting out with simple projects in 1975, the animations grew more sophisticated through the years. You may remember their first full-length movie, “Chicken Run,” which won numerous awards.

According to Wikipedia, the studios are known as a training ground for young animators, and several new projects are in the works.

The various tips, called “The Animals Save the Planet,” are accompanied by a navigable cartoon-looking website by the same name. In addition to the video shown on this page, I offer these for your viewing:
