Conan O'Brien Plays With Clay
NBC'S LATE NIGHT WITH CONAN O'BRIEN will broadcast an entire episode in clay animation. The experimental and groundbreaking episode airs May 15, 2003 from 12:35-1:35 am. The entire late night talk show has been produced in stop-motion animation from the opening, to the monologue, comedy, guests even the bumpers that lead in and out of commercials. This LATE NIGHT episode from October 2002 has been completely recreated in clay in-house by the production/scenic staff, including models of guests Johnny Knoxville (JACKASS), comedian Richard Lewis and musical guest David Bowie. The show also features O'Brien's recurring look into the future in the one of the show's signature sketches: "In the Year 2000" with surprise guest Mr. T. O'Brien was one of the top writers on THE SIMPSONS animated series before landing his own talk show on NBC.
