This short and hilarious film in stop-motion showed up in 1989 and immediately conquered the heart of audiences around the world.
It didn't come out of the blue: the Aardman Animations studio, based in Bristol, had already produced some gold nuggets, but Nick Park's touch reacquainted this "old fashion" way to animate characters sculpted in clay, where the finger prints were deliberately visible.
Later, Wallace and Gromit, then Shaun the Sheep and his friends, made Aardman become the trendy and independent alternative to Hollywood cartoon productions.
