* FlintstoneTheming: The canine-themed titles of the books Gromit reads are a series-long running gag.

* FlintstoneTheming: The canine-themed titles of the books Gromit reads are a series-long running gag. For instance, in a 2013 ad spot promoting UK tourism, his holiday reading is ''[[Literature/FiftyShadesOfGrey Fifty Shades of Greyhound]]''.


Added DiffLines:

* NotNowKiddo: In a 2013 ad spot promoting UK tourism, Gromit's attempts to show Wallace a travel brochure are ignored as Wallace is in the throes of planning an unnecessarily elaborate travel device. After its inevitable dramatic malfunction, Wallace notices the brochure and complains that Gromit should have shown it to him sooner.

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"]]).

* 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".
