Yes, a Jeep.
That’s the vehicle driven by Sheriff Carter (series star Colin Ferguson) in the normal, non-animated episodes. Ordinarily, the Jeep doesn’t have a voice, which isn’t necessarily intuitive given that this is a comedic series on Syfy.
The episode, titled “Do You See What I See,” finds Sheriff Carter and Allison Blake (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) planning a holiday surprise for their kids, until a generator designed to create a fake winter in downtown Eureka malfunctions and renders the town and its inhabitants animated — even insentient objects.
“SNL” vet Chris Parnell will reprise his role as Dr. Noah Drummer, who appeared on a live-action Christmas-themed episode last December.
NBC’s “Community” tried an animated holiday special last season by turning its characters into stop-motion figures voiced by the regular cast.
The “Eureka” episode will be put together by Curious Pictures using anime, claymation, “Looney Tunes“-style animation and CGI.
