Out of the Mouths of Critters
The year's biggest topics, skewered by the Emmy Award-winning Hoofy & Boo.
In 2008 -- a year when fair and balanced news was perhaps more necessary than ever -- it was something of a challenge to find objective reportage. Good thing for Hoofy & Boo (since they're computer rendered, they don't have actual portfolios...or mouths to feed...or rent to pay...or, well, you get the point). The Emmy Award-winning anchors lent levity and perspective to a topsy-turvy 365 days. Join them here for a look back at the year that was.
