DC comic characters in claymation

We love the guys at Aardman Animation – who’ve given us Wallace and Gromit, Chicken Run, and the upcoming Pirates!: Band of Misfits – and they’re back with a new super short claymation piece that features some of your favorite DC Comics characters.

The Cartoon Network commissioned this minute-long clip as part of the promotion for their upcoming DC Nation. This is the first in a series of pieces, which was inspired by the studio’s Oscar-winning short, Creature Comforts. The conceit is that the studio takes regular interviews with real people and uses them as the dialogue track for the claymation sequence.

Creature Comforts used interviews conducted at a zoo as the basis for the film, but this new DC piece has kids being kids. As such, Superman spends a lot of time eating cookies and regaling us with how he’s not a huge fan of physical activity. The Joker has jokes. The kids even work in a  little bathroom humor.

Check out the cute clip below and don’t forget to check out Pirates! when it sails into theaters on March 30th.
