In 2003, Frontier Developments released a video game known as ''Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo'', which saw the return of Feathers [=McGraw=] as the villain in an original storyline; it was SoOkayItsAverage in most respects. In the spring/summer of 2009, TelltaleGames released a series of four episodic Wallace & Gromit adventure games, collectively ''VideoGame/WallaceAndGromitsGrandAdventures'', for the PC and Xbox Live Arcade. The games are notable for successfully replicating the look and feel of the shorts, to the point of having fingerprints and other clay modeling details visible on the characters.

This series of four short animated films and two full-length movies -- all done using old-fashioned stop-motion animation -- is about a kindhearted but clueless [[UsefulNotes/BritishAccents Lancashire-accented]] inventor, his long-suffering sapient dog, and his love for cheese. Created by Nick Park for [[Creator/AardmanAnimations Aardman Studios]], the series has won fans and accolades on both sides of the Atlantic, including numerous Oscars, and is a rare example of British suburban life visible in media exported to America.

* ''WesternAnimation/AMatterOfLoafAndDeath'' (short - 2008). Wherein the two run a bakery. While Wallace falls in love with a former bread mascot, Gromit attempts to solve the murders of several bakers... no prizes for guessing whether the two are related. Aired on Christmas Day 2008, it was the top-rated programme of the day (ahead of ''Series/DoctorWho'''s [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E14TheNextDoctor "The Next Doctor"]]).

Doctor"]]). Wait, no, scratch that. With 16.15 million viewers, it was the most viewed programme of the YEAR.

Added DiffLines:

* SmartAnimalAverageHuman: Wallace is a BunglingInventor whose inventions often go awry, and it's up to his dog with common sense, Gromit, to clean up the mess. A poster for ''WesternAnimation/TheCurseOfTheWereRabbit'' probably sums it up best; it has Wallace with the caption "master", while Gromit has the caption "mind".

* BlessedAreTheCheesemakers: Wallace's cheese obsession. The producers have great fun referencing the most bizarre and obscure cheese names possible.
** This namedropping, in fact, ''saved Wensleydale cheese'', which was right on the cusp of disappearing before Wallace and Gromit [[TheRedStapler created a new demand for it]]. The producers chose this as Wallace's favorite because it looked interesting when he said it.

* TheMerch: Shortly after the release of ''A Close Shave'', companies took note of how merchandisable the characters were, particularly Gromit and Shaun. Plush toys, backpacks, key chains, alarm clocks and figurines are just a small helping of products you can find with their likeness slapped on.

* AnachronismStew: Wallace and Gromit seems to be set in a ''Beanotown''-type timewarp where technology and fashion remains much as it did in the 1950s, yet more modern inventions such as laser-security systems and remote controls are also present. A number of pop-culture references from later decades have also been made in the films. Of corse, this being Wallace & Gromit, you can chalk it all up to RuleOfFunny.
