Already off the drawing board in Britain is Crapston Villas, an animated soap opera produced for Channel 4. The ten-episode series, which made its debut last Friday, fills our living rooms with a household of flat-dwellers from hell, including Fatso, a cat who eats his own sick. Jane Horrocks and Alison Steadman do two of the voices. Sara Ann Kennedy's warped brain provided the plot. "Her script was so funny," [Roger] Law says. "It shocked me, and I'm not easy to shock. So I thought we had to do it."
