'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' recap: Some Like It Hutt

Last night Star Wars: The Clone Wars gave us probably the funniest "moral" ever to open an episode of the series: "Love comes in all shapes and sizes." A fine message, true, but hilarious when you consider that it’s referring to the Hutts, those slug-like kingpins of the interstellar demimonde. In this case, it’s referring specifically to Ziro the Hutt and his problematic relationships with his mother and his girlfriend, lounge singer Sy Snootles. Ziro, who supervising director Dave Filoni has said is based on Truman Capote, but who really seems like a Tennessee Williams matriarch played by Divine, has quickly distinguished himself as one of the breakout  new characters on Clone Wars—probably the most enjoyable other than bounty hunter Cad Bane. Amazingly, both Ziro and Bane, two characters that couldn’t seem more different, are played by the peerless voice actor Corey Burton, who has acted opposite himself on more than one occasion throughout the course of the series.
