Aardman is synonym of claymation for me, I completely love their creations. How can someone resist to Wallace & Gromit? (And this is a cat person talking). The series are great, but the film, Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, is terrific. The jokes are intelligent, the animation is beautiful, the timing is perfect and the characters are adorable. I could make a list of positive adjectives for it, but I am going to stop now. If you haven’t already, go watch it now.
I bet that this year Nick Park is going to win another Oscar, because he is the guy who deserves it most. He was nominated four times for Oscars and deservedly won three times. The one he lost doesn’t actually count because in that year he was nominated twice, and won.
Back to the Wallace & Gromit animation series, I discovered that you can watch them at You Tube. It isn’t as good as having the DVDs at home (something that I suggest to you do, if you can), but it’s a fast and easy way to put a smile in your face. That playlist has 10 short animations of the Wallace & Gromit series and the sublime Aardman’s creation Creature Comforts which always makes me laugh, specially the Brazilian leopard. Be aware that some of the videos are missing a bit at the end.
If you like them you have to take a look at the Online Shop (or maybe you shouldn’t). You are going to find a collection of irresistible stuff to buy, like a Hutch Rabbit, an Anti-Pesto Gromit, a Shaun Backpack, an Anti-pesto Van Cookie Jar and Wallace and Gromit Bookends with tiny little bunnies. Oh my… I could die (or kill) for any one of those.
