I remember in the early eighties (doh!) there was a huge influx of claymation and stop motion short films and tv programs. Notably was one about the Pied Piper of Hamelin that I remember, which used to scare the shit out of me.
Then a few years ago there a young lady called Susie Templeton made a Peter and the Wolf claymation short that came out and won a load on awards, one of which was an Oscar. Its amazing its on at Christmas usually.

Sean Pecknolds website is called By Grand Children, go and have a look...
