Ducks In Animation #41

-Wallace & Gromit in A Matter of Loaf and Death

There's nothing better than a Wallace & Gromit adventure, but it takes so long to create one (almost a day per second of film), that they come out only rarely.  Imagine my surprise to discover that A Matter of Loaf and Death, a half-hour show, aired this past Christmas day on the BBC... and drew higher ratings than the Queen's annual address!  14.4 million people were watching, with 53.3% of all households in the UK tuning in (the highest rated Super Bowl, in 1982, was watched by 49.1% of all US households).

And I can understand why... it was very funny, a fine successor to all the other shorts and films Aardman Animation has done. 

Of course, there are ducks.
