Wallace & Gromit: The Complete Collection is a stop-motion animated series created by Aardman Animations that follows the quirky inventor Wallace and his intelligent dog Gromit as they engage in various comical adventures in their hometown of Wigan, Lancashire. Originally introduced in the 1989 short film A Grand Day Out, which was nominated for an Academy Award, Wallace and Gromit quickly became a beloved cultural phenomenon due to their charmingly quirky personalities and unique animation style.

The series has a total of four short films - A Grand Day Out, The Wrong Trousers (1993), A Close Shave (1995) and A Matter of Loaf and Death (2008) - each of which is included in this collection. The collection also includes a number of other shorts, such as The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005) and Wallace & Gromit's World of Invention (2010), as well as never-before-seen bonus material that provides viewers with a behind-the-scenes look at the production process that goes into creating these stop-motion shorts.

Throughout the series, Wallace, voiced by actor Peter Sallis, is portrayed as a bumbling, good-natured inventor who is always coming up with outlandish inventions that don't always work out as planned. Despite his often misguided attempts to make life easier for himself and his faithful companion Gromit, Wallace's heart is always in the right place, and his enduring optimism and charm make him an incredibly endearing character. Gromit, on the other hand, is a silent but extremely expressive dog who serves as both Wallace's best friend and voice of reason.

The animation style of Wallace & Gromit: The Complete Collection is truly a marvel to behold. The creators of the series, led by co-creators Nick Park and Peter Lord, use a process called stop-motion animation, which involves creating physical models of the characters and sets, and then taking thousands of individual photographs of them, slightly adjusting their positions each time. When the photos are played back in order, it creates the illusion of movement. The level of detail that goes into each frame is truly remarkable, from the intricate expressions on the characters' faces to the intricately detailed sets that serve as their backdrop.

Perhaps the most notable aspect of the series is its unique blend of humor and heart. While the series is undeniably funny, with moments of slapstick and wordplay that are sure to make viewers of all ages chuckle, it also has a real emotional depth that sets it apart from other children's shows. The relationship between Wallace and Gromit is both heartwarming and complex - despite the fact that Gromit has no dialogue, his love and loyalty to his human counterpart are palpable in every scene.

Overall, Wallace & Gromit: The Complete Collection is a true masterpiece of animation, combining exceptional storytelling, hilarious humor, and groundbreaking stop-motion animation techniques. Viewers of all ages will find themselves captivated by the charming world of Wallace and Gromit, and will no doubt be left longing for more adventures from these lovable characters. Whether you're a long-time fan or new to the series, this collection is not to be missed.

Wallace & Gromit: The Complete Collection is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (4 episodes). The series first aired on June 3, 1989.
