NEW YORK - Triumph the Insult Comic Dog doesn't just bark out zingers and smoke cigars he worries about global warming. So the R-rated hand puppet will be one of the performers for TBS' two-hour "Earth to America" special 8 p.m. EST Sunday. Robert Smigel, the heavy hand up Triumph's behind, recently talked to The Associated Press in character, explaining that this isn't the first time he's been politically active. He says he's also very passionate about "declaring cats second-class citizens."

Organized by
Larry David's wife, Laurie David, the program will also feature
Will Ferrell,
Steve Martin,
Tom Hanks,
Ben Stiller,
Jack Black,
Robin Williams and
Leonardo DiCaprio among others.

The special is being taped in Las Vegas, which is also the home to a big comedy festival this weekend. Smigel, 45, has distinguished himself among his comic brethren with not just Triumph (a character born on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien") but with his "TV Fun House" cartoons on "Saturday Night Live."

Smigel's (and Triumph's) shining moment, however, was likely outside the Ziegfeld Theater in New York before the release of "Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones" in 2002. His berating of the fans still reverberates.

Even now, Triumph says, "When the nerds see me, they go running."

I think that comic dog is pretty vulgar.
