But one series I especially adored was a segment that was part of his 2003 series Lenny Henry in Pieces. Unlike the other sketches involved in Series 2, this one was different as it was animated. Directed by Pierre Coffin (Despicable Me, Pat and Stanley), it was about a family of polar bears living at Dudley Zoo - Gary (Lenny Henry) and Claudia (Alison Steadman), their son Shane (Barry Farrimond) and Uncle Ian (Trevor Peacock).
