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 two films. Their current partner is [=StudioCanal=]. They have also done the English dubs for the Belgian-produced ''Animation/ATownCalledPanic''.

'''Aardman Animations''' are UsefulNotes/AcademyAward winning British animation and multimedia studio founded by David Sproxton and Peter Lord in 1975, primarily known for their distinct brand of StopMotionAnimation and ''very'' British sense of humor.

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.
