Imagine a set of cartoon characters who appear to be alien beings but who experience many of the same daily joys and frustrations that we do. Then imagine that these beings are somehow naive and curious AND wise, with complex vocabularies and gentle senses of humor. Pyle's characters make us aware of the strangeness of many of the things we take for granted on our own planet. ~ David
