Produced by Warner Bros. Animation
and DC Entertainment
, DC Nation is a block of Cartoon Network programming
dedicated to content based on the DC brand, including animated series like Green Lantern
and the forthcoming Beware the Batman
, as well as special event programming, filmed interstitials, exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, original animated shorts and other DC-related material.
We've seen brief clips
of some of the original animated shorts before, but now we've got a complete feature in the form of this charming stop-motion affair from Aardman
. The studio behind Wallace and Gromit
and Chicken Run
has retrofitted its Academy Award-winning Creature Comforts
format -- whereby recordings of visitors to a zoo were set to original animations -- for the superhero set, including Superman, Batman, Catwoman
and the Joker
DC Nation premieres later this year on Cartoon Network.
