Life on Ben

We already know that Jemaine loves clay-animations. It occurs that he's keen on giving his voice to not only sheep but some strange creatures in a TV series which title reminds me one of David Bowie's songs, Life on Mars. This series has something to do with hygiene, not travelling in space, though.

"TV series featuring the voices of Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi. Jemaine is the green guy and Taika is the purple guy. They come from Ben's butt but are taken from their home violently and planted at the base of Ben's nose when he gets an itch down there and then picks his nose. The series follows the two symbiotic creatures on their quest to get back to Ben's butt making contact with a surreal zoo of creatures that call Ben home. Created and directed by Luke Nola. Television Spacaman Ltd. Producer Neil Stichbury, Animator Any Elworthy, Simon Good, Models Shalom Watkins, Set - Adrian Bennet."


Life on Ben is from 2003-2004 and the whole series of 10 episodes is available on DVD in New Zealand. It may appear on eBay, if you're interested in buying it.

You can watch three more episodes on-line:
