In the late 90s, Aardman partnered with Creator/DreamWorksAnimation for a five-picture American distribution deal, which began with ''WesternAnimation/ChickenRun'' and, after [[ExecutiveMeddling some ugly behind-the-scenes politics]], abruptly ended with their third film, ''WesternAnimation/FlushedAway''. They tried again a few years later with Creator/SonyPicturesAnimation, but ran into similar problems and broke it off after [[WesternAnimation/ArthurChristmas two]] [[WesternAnimation/ThePiratesInAnAdventureWithScientists films]]. Their current partner is [=StudioCanal=]. They have also done the English dubs for the Belgian-produced ''Animation/ATownCalledPanic''.

It began, as most successes have, in a garage. The studio's name comes from the title of Sproxton and Lord's first short, "The Aardman," about a superhero who evoked stereotypical western English machoism (in other words, "an [[PunBasedTitle 'ard man]])."[[note]]A hard man.[[/note]] When it came time to deposit their check for the film, they realized they needed to create a new bank account for it, which became the Aardman Animation account. Several other films commissioned by Creator/TheBBC, as well as hugely popular TV ads, would follow throughout the decades.
