By Gary Cutlack on at

The back catalogue of talking plasticine productions from Aardman is about to be given a lease of life outside of the usual Christmas/CBBC repeat cycle, with Amazon's online film streaming service LoveFilm adding Aardman's TV stuff to its site.

The deal includes such memorable stop-motion series stars as Wallace & Gromit, Rex the Runt, Morph, Shaun the Sheep and Timmy Time, with the Creature Comforts stuff and animation Angry Kid also included as part of the distribution deal.

Robin Gladman, an actual real human from Aardman who is made out of flesh and bone, said of the deal: “We know that viewers feel as much love for our animations as we do. This new deal with LOVEFiLM is an exciting development in our aim to embrace many digital platforms. It allows us to bring some of our best-loved creations into even more homes across the UK."
