Wallace And Gromit: The Best Of Aardman Animation
Genre:Animation - Family
Credits:Directed by Nick Park et al.
Awards:1996 Oscar Winner for "A Close Shave".

Britain's Aardman Animation Studio's versatile approach combines the hip populism of Jay Ward, the rich detail of Disney, and the quirky experimentalism of the Brothers Quay producing some of the most imaginative and entertaining film comedy of the past decade. This nine-film anthology features the anarchic spoof "Rex the Runt," a medieval epic "Wat's Pig," cool cat chanteuse singing Nina Simone's "My Baby Just Cares for Me" and kiddie show satire "Pib and Pob." The centerpiece is Nick Park's 1996 Oscar-winner "A Cose Shave," featuring the peerless comedy team of Wallace (an amiable, scatterbrained inventor) and Gromit (his level-headed canine companion). In an atmosphere of mock-Hitchockian menace, the duo unravel the mystery behind a nationwide wool shortage, sparking an elaborate adventure that packs more wit, invention and excitement into thirty minutes than are found in most feature films. "It should run forever." - the New York Post
