Years ago on the Canadian cable channel formerly known as WTN (Women's Television Network) there was a late-night series called Shameless Shorts, featuring indie short films from around the world.

One of the regular features was an animated serial from England, about a group of people living in a very working class (or un-working class) urban apartment building. It was very funny, very clever, and very ranuchy. But I can't for the life of me remember the name of it. It think it might have been something along the lines of _____ Towers or ____ Manor, but I'm not 100% positive about that. (I even tried searching on imdb for all the titles with "Manor" or "Tower" ... but didn't find it.)

I think it was claymation/stop action animation, but it might have been regular pen&ink animation.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

TIA

LOL, no.

Faulty Towers is live action. The one I'm looking for was a series of animated shorts, each episode about 5-10 minutes long. Mid to late 90s I think, give or take.
