CAR TALK - The Cartoon?!?!?!?!?!

You know those guys -- Tom and Ray Magliozzi, or Click and Clack -- the CAR TALK guys that have been heard on PBS radio for years? They're either funny or unfunny, depending upon your tolerance for lotsa laughing and old jokes and, well, talk of car problems. In our family, it's right down the middle: half love the show, and the other half have ugly things to say.

Regardless, over at Stephen Silver's blog, he lets us in on the new PBS TV show CAR TALK- THE ANIMATED SERIES (working title) for which he has drawn the above character designs. Stepehn is a swell guy and a great cartoonist. I happen to have an autographed copy of his Sketchbook. It's great to see the energy and joy in his sketches -- and what a fun design!

The new TV show, scheduled to air Summer 2008, says this article from Reuters, will "take off where the radio series ends,' showing what the hosts do off-air ...."

Hmm. I don't know about that, but I do like Stephen's great design work.

What's next, "This American Wife?" A reality show documenting Ira Glass' Mrs-adventures?! Sheesh!
