i love these!!!
25 April 2006 | by tigrerippy3See all my reviews

Wallace and Gromit are Oscar winning stars that are in 3 famous short films.

And in 2002 they are come to our TV screens with Wallace and Gromit's cracking contraptions.

Nick park and the crew have made this the same style as the shorts and the feature film.

I love these, they made me grin then laugh then scream with joy! I like snowmanatron best.It is funny and a good scene to watch.

So now with more success Wallace and Gromit are coming to the CBBC channel with a 40-part series with Shaun the sheep.

As we know a lot of people love Shaun but my best is the evil robot/cooker from Wallace and Gromit's first film, a grand day out.

If you don't like cracking contraptions you are not a real Fan.

So stay tuned to CBBC for more Adventures.
