Aardman creatures fight prejudice
The creatures will be seen on TV from January
The team behind the Wallace and Gromit cartoons have unveiled six new characters - all with disabilities.
Aardman Animations has based the plasticine animals - including a bull terrier in a wheelchair - on those from its Creature Comforts TV series.
The new Creature Discomforts characters will appear in adverts from next week.
The animals are part of a campaign by the Leonard Cheshire Disability charity to highlight the discrimination faced by disabled people.
A samurai once asked Zen Master Hakuin where he would go after he died.
Hakuin answered, "How am I supposed to know?"
"How do you know? You're a Zen master?" exclaimed the samurai.
"Yes, but not a dead one," Hakuin answered.
