Wallace and Gromit - "The Wrong Trousers"
I'm embarrassed to admit that I was unfamiliar with Wallace and Gromit until I encountered this video. The two main characters (the man and his dog) are created with stop-motion clay modeling; the video I've embedded above is an "promo" excerpt (the chasing of the penguin bandit) from "The Wrong Trousers," which won the Academy Award for Best Animated Film in 1993. After viewing this 3-minute episode I checked our library website and was delighted to find that they have DVDs of all three Wallace and Gromit movies.
