I found this while trolling through the archives at Cake Wrecks (because I? am a blognerd). It's claymation opera - what's not to love? I watched Claymation Christmas every year as a kid and a teenager, till our VCR died and the 20 year old tape wouldn't play. Then I bought it on DVD. I love claymation. Chicken Run? Hilarious (even though I kind of hate Mel Gibson). And let's not forget Wallace and Grommet. "Cheese, Grommet, Cheese!" is something said (with hand gesture) among my family pretty darn often.
