The whole of season four of No Activity is going to be animated, presumably due to Covid restrictions.

Well, barely animated. At points it looks like a video game being played on ten-year-old computer, which makes it almost painful to watch (this trailer (https://youtu.be/_Y85NM4P0lQ) doesn't look so bad, but some of the ones on Facebook are appalling).

are we including 3D CG stuff in there? there's Big Train and The Mighty Boosh if so
 1. the repeat run got a new name and titles when Edvard Munch's estate took issue with them using The Scream. they replaced it with Newman and Baddiel's corpses, just to let you know what they'd be doing for the next 28 minutes

I meant title sequences only, initially.
Always thought Python as being equally animation and live action.
