So, here’s something that we just adore: Dean Fleischer-Camp and Jenny Slate’s animated shorts and book, Marcel The Shell With Shoes On. We’re big fans of Bored To Death guest star and former SNL cast member Jenny Slate — have you seen her Coco interview? — who is the voice and mastermind behind Marcel’s adorable jokes. If you’re wondering why Marcel is, well, a shell, Slate revealed that she, along with director Dean Fleischer-Camp, chose that because they’re the “jewels of the sea.” How cute is that? The animated vids are short and sweet, transporting viewers into the everyday goings-on of a shell — cars are bugs, skis are toenails, dogs are lint — which you can watch below.
