Here's an early Christmas present worth getting excited about: Panique Au Village - best known on these shores as A Town Called Panic - is returning to screens later this year with a brand new Christmas special.
For those unfamiliar, the creation of Stephane Aubier and Vincent Patar is a very special kind of daft: A stop motion animated series of adventures revolving around the simply names Cowboy, Indian and Horse as they dim-wittedly live their lives and stumble into different mishaps. The feature outing of the show premiered in selection in Cannes and many thought - what with the duo nvolved in more 'serious' animation since - that this may be the end of the trio. Not so.
Catsuka have word that a brand new, twenty six minute Christmas special is in the works to air later this year. The story? It's Christmas Eve and Cowboy and Indian's bickering leads to the two of them accidentally destroying the Yule Log that Horse has been working on. Horse? He calls up Santa and cancels all presents to the house, leaving Cowboy and Indian desperate to regain his favor.
