Well, since we won't have Hillary interrupting our summer, we should have time to kick back and enjoy this;
A zany cartoon debut for an animated pair; New turn for 'Click & Clack' and PBS
Yes, that zany pair from NPR's 'Car Talk", Ray and Tom Magliozzi, are hitting the small screen, in an animated cartoon, highlighting ... Well, what else, their zaniness.
"As the Wrench Turns" is a tongue-in-cheek take on what Click and Clack's off-air lives might be like, featuring those familiar radio voices in exaggerated car toon bodies. It centers on a fictionalized version of the brothers' car repair shop in Cambridge, where some characters glug motor oil in coffee cups and a local politician is named Marty Bezzle. (The campaign button reads "M. Bezzle.")Can't wait to see the show credits on this one!
"How much stupid stuff can we possibly - oh, in that case, the show might be able to go on forever," Ray Magliozzi said in a recent conference call with his brother, who pointed out that all they had to do for the show was sit in a studio and read a script.
"It's dumb work; we didn't have to think much," Tom Magliozzi said. "We usually don't."
