Wallace & Gromit: The Best Of Aardman Animations

Seventy-five minutes of Claymation whimsy from England, made over the past decade by Aardman Animations. A good bit of this consists of cute animals with charming accents, though the 1995 Pib & Pog features warring toys and the kind of violence found in Death Becomes Her. My Baby Just Cares for Me (1987) stages a Nina Simone classic in a nightclub, and Early Bird (1993) is a rather droll rundown of the daily routine at a radio station. A little of this goes a long way, but the program certainly has its moments. The main animators are Gary Cureton, Lloyd Price, Peter Peake, and Bob Baker. (JR)
