Wallace's ever-resourceful dog Gromit sets to work making bunting as the animated comedy duo embark on a new caper filmed for the Queen's diamond jubilee.
Director Nick Park's Aardman Studios has created mini-movie "A Jubilee Bunt-a-thon" for the National Trust as part of the heritage organisation's programme of celebrations marking the Queen's 60 years on the throne.
To be shown at 14 properties during the Trust's Summer of Celebration Diamond Jubilee parties, the film begins with the long-suffering Gromit sitting at his sewing machine making miles of bunting.
Then Gromit and his hapless master Wallace prepare for the big weekend by scaling ladders to hoist the bunting up around a magnificent National Trust manor.
The cheese-loving duo's films have already met with the royal seal of approval, as the Duchess of Cornwall has declared that Wallace and Gromit are Prince Charles' "favourite people in the world", according to the Trust.
"At Aardman we are thrilled that Wallace and Gromit have had a chance to explore all the Trust has to offer, from helping to put up bunting to enjoying their Wensleydale cheese platter at a picnic," Park said.
Tony Berry, National Trust visitor experience director, said: ?The National Trust and Wallace and Gromit are two of Britain?s greatest treasures and we felt it fitting that in this summer of celebration we should bring them together."
In July, the man-and-dog partnership will take part in another of Britain's major cultural events when they appear at the Proms.
