Chris Ware has returned with another animated opening for THIS AMERICAN LIFE.


  1. I love how Chris Ware can make even the most harmless story look heart-wrenching.

    At the moment at the 2:20 mark when the man says, “She says I wasn’t there,” the look on the little round face makes the statement seem like a knife that threatens to cut their marriage apart. And then he laughs a second later, and you realize it’s just a silly story.
