Wallace and Gromit are making a return to the small screen for the first time since 1995.

The comedy duo will back on TV in what is sure to be cheese-packed programme in 2008 called Trouble at' Mill.

As ever Wallace's wacky gadgets will play a big role in the show, as the pair have started a bakery in their house, complete with robot arms.

Even though it won't be on until 2008 the people behind the show are hard at work, as it takes eight months to make!

Although you may know Wallace and Gromit from their recent film, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, they first appeared on TV in 1989.

That was in a show called A Grand Day Out, and two more programmes followed, called The Wrong Trousers and A Close Shave.

All three of those films won Oscars for best short film, and one of the stars of A Close Shave was Shaun the Sheep, who is now a star of his own show on CBBC.
