Wallace: a crackpot, cheese-nibbling inventor.
Gromit: trusted friend of Wallace (a dog who is a lot smarter than his owner).
Together: Wallace and Gromit, the Oscar-winning (and many other awards) pair, was created by Nick Park.
The dynamic duo of Wallace and Gromit has thrilled many with their exciting adventures. Whether traveling to the moon to load up on cheese or saving the crown jewels from an expert thief penguin, Wallace and Gromit always keep their audience wanting more. As a direct result of their popularity, Wallace and Gromit have become idols to the young &endash; as well as the young at heart.
Nick Park, creator of these two adorable creatures, is world renown for his expertise in clay animation. He began clay animating at a very young age and has worked his way up slowly to his professional status. While working at Aardman Animations, his unique characters have appeared in three short films, "A Grand Day Out " (1992), "The Wrong Trousers" (1993), and "A Close Shave" (1995). Each of his Wallace & Gromit films has won him an Academy Award.
It seems to be that after all of his time spent on these two, Park may take some time off from Wallace & Gromit to work on some other projects. Still, there is still rumor that there may be a new Wallace & Gromit film in the works sometime in the near future. As for now, we can only anticipate and hope this rumor is actually truth.
