Rarely have critters frolicked more hilariously than in Over the Hedge, a movie that should amuse all but the newborn or dead. This first animated release from the marriage of DreamWorks and Paramount has animals that will appeal to the young, humor that will appeal to adolescents, tongue-in-cheek sophistication that will endear itself to adults and an appreciation of its animated predecessors that should warm the hearts of veteran moviegoers. Over the Hedge (DreamWorks) Starring the voices of Bruce Willis, Garry Shandling, Wanda Sykes, William Shatner.

What a shame. Garry Shandling says he still does not know what he is going to do next, a full year after discontinuing his 4-year-old sitcom, "It's Garry Shandling's Show," which ran on the Showtime cable network and in syndication.But viewers of Shandling's first comedy special since then, which premieres tonight, should have an easy, non-specific answer: Just make us laugh some more, Garry.Tonight's "HBO Comedy Hour," at 11 on the premium service, is one laugh-out-loud 60 minutes, as illustrated in an impromptu question-and-answer session with a live audience about halfway through the show.

The casualties of war are not always obvious."My bones been hurting a lot," says a man named John. "Sometimes I have shortness of breath, you know, just dizziness, just constantly going. Can't be explained by nobody."Others are suffering those syptoms and more: aching joints, wart-like growths, rashes on arms and hands, bleeding gums, memory loss.These symptoms are being suffered by a number of those men and women who did duty in the Persian Gulf war, and no one seems able to explain why.This story, which appeared in the Chicago Tribune last week, gets further exposure tonight on "20/20" (10 p.m., Channel 13)

HOLLYWOOD -- David Brenner clearly remembers the night of Jan. 8, 1971. The comedian had $3 in his pocket and had to borrow $100 to buy a suit for his first appearance on "The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson.""I only did it as a lark," Mr. Brenner recalled. "I wanted to get on television once. . . . In 18 months as a comic, I [had] only made $8,000."That all changed in less than 24 hours. "By the end of the business day after I did Carson, I had $10,000 in jobs," Mr. Brenner said. "I took them all."

"Mixed Nuts" sure is zany. It's also wacky, zonked and way-out. It just isn't very funny.Nora Ephron's first film since "Sleepless in Seattle," the movie is long on people bumping into walls and doors, and short on just about every other civilized virtue. It's particularly demeaning to its star, Steve Martin, who is presented in an unappetizing light as a whining, kvetching incompetent.Based on a French cult item called "Pere Noel Est Une Ordure" (you figure it out), the film looks as if it might be interesting: a farce set at a completely unprofessional suicide "hot line" office on the prime night of lonely guy despair, Christmas Eve. But Ephron's good taste keeps it from prancing into truly dangerous or subversive areas.

If you want entertainment on a Wednesday night, and want it from your television, there seem to be only two options this summer: Settle for "Models Inc." on Fox, or get cable. However, President Clinton is pre-empting a lot of network and cable programs with a press conference, which will begin at 8 p.m. The speech is expected to run 30 to 60 minutes.* "Models Inc" (9-10 p.m., WBFF, Channel 45) -- On last week's episode, David (Brian Gaskill) got shot like any number of "Dallas" characters: sprawled on the floor, victimized by an unseen assailant.

Garry Shandling is so hot that when asked if he can talk about "the network offer," he has to ask which multimillion-dollar network offer to host a late-night talk show you're referring to."The one I cannot talk about is CBS; I cannot talk about the CBS situation at all," Shandling said in a recent telephone interview."However, I can talk about the NBC situation. And that was a difficult decision for me to make, because I have an affinity toward late-night television. I grew up watching it, and it was certainly the catalyst to my career.

They say that the best humor is based in truth.It's a frightening prospect when watching the behind-the-scenes antics of a talk-show host in HBO's hysterical "The Larry Sanders Show." Is the backstage banter of late-night biggies like Dave, Jay and Arsenio really this funny?According to Garry Shandling, it is. And he should know. During his rise to fame as a stand-up comedian, Mr. Shandling has done them all, including serving as a regular guest host of "The Tonight Show." As the writer/producer/star of "The Larry Sanders Show," a sometimes scathing send-up of the talk-show world on- and off-stage, Mr. Shandling insists most of the show comes from real life.

The nearness of a new year brings this column's annual roundup of people worth noting in television during the past 12 months:* Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, Dennis Miller and David Letterman:Late-night just doesn't seem as comfortable without the venerable Mr. Carson, who retired gracefully in May after 30 years on night-light duty.As for the others, they are part of the roiling ratings race that has produced a comedy of errors. Mr. Miller's syndicated show came and went in 1992. Mr. Leno, NBC's designated Carson successor, is struggling.
