Marcel the Shell Is Back and as Endearing as Ever

Earlier this month in Los Angeles, Jenny Slate joined the Slate Culture Gabfest on stage and explained the murky origins of Marcel the Shell With Shoes On, her adorable stop-motion character, who has just returned for a third installment (directed, as always, by Slate’s husband Dean Fleischer-Camp). The story was almost as endearing as Marcel himself (it helped that Slate happily did the voice). Watch the video above, give that story a listen, and then tell me you’re not charmed.
