Originally a Trilogy of Stop Motion animation shorts by Nick Park
following the Character Wallace and his Dog Gromit (named after the piece of electronic equipment: A Grommet)
Through their adventures involving a pair of mechanical trousers and a penguin, A small mischevious sheep, and trips to the moon in a homemade rocket.
Despite what you may read above, None of the episodes (including the film) are based in, or on Wensleydale, Wallace loves the cheese...That's about it.. The characters live at
62 West Wallaby Street, Wigan, Lancashire.
This is seen when Gromit collects the morning post, and the envelope shows a Wigan postcode.
