A miraculous and super-ambitious clay animation spectacle with a sense of simplicity, humor, attention to detail and adventure that I wholly loved. Unfortunately, I cannot be counted among those that grew up with this incredible pair and I only knew them by the time the feature film was released, but this huge effort with six years over the making paid off fantastically, full of imagination and adorable instances of smiles and creativity.
It is no easy task to create iconic, beloved legends with a debut, let alone a short-length one, but Nick Park and the creative team managed to do it, taking the duo out of their earthly routine and occurrences even if this was their very first appearance!
So officially declare me a fan. This week shall be dedicated to them.
