Wallace and Gromit

For those unfamiliar with this cartoon, Wallace and Gromit are the main 2 characters of 4 British animated cartoons made by Nick Park of Aardman Studios. Not alot of people in the US are familiar with this cartoon, but soon learned about them by seeing the movie Curse of the Were-Rabbit. This cartoon is referred to as claymation and filmed by using stop motion clay animation. Wallace is an inventor who lives in Wigan, Manchester and is a cheese enthusiast, mainly Wensleydale. Along with him is his intelligent dog Gromit, who communicates through body and facial expressions. For the voice of Wallace, he is voiced by British veteran actor Peter Sallis. BBC News calls this the best loved and best known stars to come out of the UK.

How can you not love Gromit? He's so cute!!

Sorry to be or sound so predictable, but I just adore this cartoon. I never really knew what it was until 6th grade. My then teacher for 6th grade, Mrs. Scott, got me forever hooked on it. She loved that cartoon and on the last day of school, we, as in my class, all watched Wallace and Gromit A Close Shave, Thw Wrong Trousers and A Grand Day Out. I have a little stuffed animal of Gromit at home, it's so cute!! I wish I could have gotten a stuffed animal of the rabbit Hutch from the Curse of the Were-Rabbit movie.
