  1. The domestic version... is every bit as good as the original.
  2. Brilliantly original but wise and low-key.
  3. I can't remember the last time I laughed so quickly and loudly at a new TV series.
  4. Naturally funny interviews are easy TV; it's with drier material that the animators shine. [8 Jun 2007, p.74]

    I hung on and laughed at nearly every word.

    A breezy summertime comic joy.

    It may not sound funny on paper, and some of these snippets may not be quite as side-splitting as scenes from the deadpan British original, but this edition of “Creature Comforts” is good fun.
  9. The juxtaposition of the sometimes off-the-wall comments and the cuddly creatures is what makes "Comforts" so amusing.
  10. Though it displays far less aggression, “Creature Comforts” exists as a sort of affectionate “Borat,” making fun of unsophisticated Americans, as it leaves you feeling not quite as complicit in the exploitation.

    A sly, cleverly understated concept -- for about three minutes. Stretched to a half-hour, it's a tedious exercise.
  12. Some of it is funny, some is boring, and some is bound to offend the easily offended.
  13. Maybe it was funnier with "ordinary" Britons?
