Subject: [Puptcrit] Good News and Bad News for Aardman Animation


"Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit" came in number 1 at the box office with over 16 million but the warehouse for the studio burned to the ground this morning.

I give Nick Park many points for putting this in perspective.

"Even though it is a precious and nostalgic collection and valuable to the company, in light of other tragedies (the Asian Earthquake), today isn't a big deal."

But still it is an historial lose for puppetry history.
