Trivia: Wallace & Gromit

  • Hey, It's That Guy!/Hey, It's That Voice!: This isn't the first time Peter Sallis played a maverick scientist.
  • The Other Darrin: Ben Whitehead has been increasingly acting as the voice of Wallace, most notably in the Grand Adventures series, along with a number of TV adverts featuring the duo. Fortunately Whitehead's voicing is so near to Peter Sallis that most people don't even notice the difference.
    • Except in "Fright Of The Bumblebee", the first game in the Grand Adventures series. As it was Whitehead's first time voicing Wallace, he sounds a little different than he usually does. Fortunately, he seems to have gotten much better as he continues to voice Wallace.
  • The Red Stapler: The last of the creameries manufacturing the centuries-old Wensleydale cheese were teetering on the edge of closure in the early '90s, until they received a chance mention in A Grand Day Out. Noticing the increased interest, the creamery persuaded Aardman Animation to endorse a Wallace and Gromit-branded cheese, which worked to rebuild Wensleydale into a thriving product worldwide.
