Wallace and Gromit

Aardman Animations, in association with Wallace & Gromit Ltd., BBC Children`s International, BBC Bristol, BBC Lionheart

Aardman Animations uses virtuoso claymation to chronicle the zany lives of an eccentric inventor, Wallace, and his faithful, dog, Gromit. In this series of films for television, the endearing duo weave their way through hilarious misadventures, in which Wallace’s dubious inventions are their nemeses and the two become victimized by the pitfalls of technology. Gromit’s skepticism about the merit of his owner’s offbeat inventions is surpassed only his canine loyalty. The pup’s affinity for reading is matched only by his owner’s gourmandizing. Wallace & Gromit is the product of executive producers Colin Rose and Peter Salmon for the BBC, Peter Lord and David Sproxton, producer Christopher Moll, director Nick Park, writers Nick Park and Bob Baker, and voice performer Peter Saills. For impeccable animation and story-telling, a Peabody Award to Aardman Animations, Wallace & Gromit Ltd., BBC Children’s International, BBC Bristol and BBC Lionheart for Wallace & Gromit.
