Click & Clack's As the Wrench Turns

Click & Clack's As the Wrench Turns

This animated sitcom takes off from the hit NPR show "Car Talk" and follows the on- and off-air escapades of Click and Clack, the Tappet brothers (alter-egos of "Car Talk's" Tom and Ray Magliozzi), as they try to fix cars, fend off disgruntled customers and seek out increasingly creative ways to goof off. The episodes take place primarily at Car Talk Plaza, a fictional building that houses their radio studio and their famed garage in Harvard Square in the fair city of Cambridge, Massachusetts.
