The original story was that Wallace and Gromit were going to go to the Moon and there were going to be a whole lot of characters there. It repairs a broken piece of the Moon that Wallace had cut off by using glue, issues a parking ticket for the rocket, and becomes annoyed by an oil leakage from the craft. According to the book The World of Wallace and Gromit, original plans were that the film would be forty minutes long, including a sequence where Wallace and Gromit would discover a fast food restaurant on the Moon.Initially distraught at losing its chance to go to Earth, the robot fashions dislodged scraps of the rocket fuselage into skis and starts skiing across the lunar landscape.
but with 12 local bakers having gone mysteriously missing, Gromit worries that they'll soon make up the baker's dozen. Park wanted Wallace to have a Lancastrian accent like his own, but Sallis could only do a Yorkshire voice. The short won the first BAFTA Award for Best Short Animation awarded in 1990, beating out Park's other nominated short, Creature Comforts.Wallace panics, thinking the robot is angry over the cheese he is taking with him, and he and Gromit retreat into the rocket. Park unveiled Wallace and Gromit to an unsuspecting public on this day in 1989 at an animation festival at the Arnolfini gallery in Bristol.
