  • The film started as Nick Park's graduation project for the National Film and Television School in England. He finished it over six years later, while working at Aardman Animations. Park first started thinking about Wallace and Gromit in art school in Sheffield. Gromit originally was a cat. He became a dog because dogs are generally bigger and thus, easier to manipulate for an animator. Gromit originally had a voice. The voice was cut because the animators thought that his facial expressions were communicative enough. One of the reasons Wallace and Gromit have disproportionately large hands is because the animators can more easily manipulate them. Wallace and Gromit's pupils are tiny holes that can fit the end of a paper clip. This allows the animators to manipulate eye movements. Park likes to call the robot on the moon "The Cooker." There were originally supposed to be several robots on the moon, in a tribute to the bar scene in STAR WARS. The short film might have won an Academy Award, if not for the fact that it was competing against another Park creation, CREATURE COMFORTS, which won the award that year. Park's father has said that the interior of the rocket ship is similar to a caravan he once built for the family. "Everybody knows the moon's made of cheese."--Wallace, explaining to Gromit why they are going to vacation on the moon
