Animated duo Wallace And Gromit are to have a statue erected in their honour in their 'hometown' of Bristol, England. Oscar-winning animator Nick Park created Wallace and Gromit in the Aardman Animations studio in Bristol and, following their Academy Award win earlier this year (06), fans had campaigned for a permanent tribute to them. WALLACE AND GROMIT: THE CURSE OF THE WERE-RABBIT won the Best Animated Film Oscar in March.
