Mech-animated

July 9, 2008

As if they're not animated enough Saturday mornings on WBEZ, the Car Talk brothers debut their new cartoon series tonight on WTTW Ch. 11.

As the Wrench Turns follows the on- and off-air escapades of Click and Clack, the alter egos of Car Talk brothers Tom and Ray Magliozzi, as they try to fix cars, fend off disgruntled customers and seek out increasingly creative ways to goof off.

In tonight's back-to-back episodes, Click and Clack run for President to save their sinking network and outsource their radio show to India so they can pursue idleness.
