Wallace & GromitJust when their new movie The Curse of the Were-Rabbit hits #1 at the U.S. box office comes this horrible news that Martha reported yesterday: the entire archive of Wallace & Gromit props have been destroyed in a fire at an Aardman warehouse in England.

Oddly, the props from Were-Rabbit were not caught in the fire, but all the props and sets from previous movies are gone. And this, readers, is yet another reason why we have to make sure films are preserved.
