Fans of Thunderbirds, Stingray, and other puppet gadget/spy adventures from Gerry Anderson will recognize the many nods to Supermarianation in Nick Park's Wallace & Gromit films. Inspired by the likes of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, Alfred Hitchcock, Hammer Horror, and Michael Powell, Park's thriller/comedies instantly became part of the essential canon of Spy Vibe-style fun adventure. This September all four of the short films, including the recent
A Matter of Loaf and Death, will be released on Blu-ray. The feature film is not included, and still no mention of the Cracking Contraptions shorts. You can pre-order the disc on Amazon.
