In the '80s, they began by producing ''The Amazing Adventures of Morph,'' a claymation series of children's shorts. Around this time, they hired a fresh-faced film school student named Nick Park to work for them on PeterGabriel's famed "Sledgehammer" video while he finished his thesis film, ''WesternAnimation/AGrandDayOut''. Park not only earned the studio it's first [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Oscar]] with ''WesternAnimation/CreatureComforts'' (which was nominated against ''Grand Day Out''), but the characters from his thesis would become the first of the studio's flagship franchise, Franchise/WallaceAndGromit, for which they would later produce two more shorts and a feature film, all of which earned more Oscars.

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 ''WesternAnimation/ATownCalledPanic''.
