Wallace and Gromit's make Google doodle

Wallace and Gromit, the much-loved animated stars of The Wrong Trousers and A Grand Day Out, celebrate their 20th birthday today with an appearance as a Google doodle.

The pair appear on Google's homepage with Wallace looling through a magnifying glass, which forms an "o" and Gromit drinking a cup of tea while holding a spanner, which forms the "l" in Google.

They follow in the footsteps of Gandhi, who appeared as a Google doodle on his 140th birthday last month.

Wallace and Gromit are currently also starring in a BBC promotional video for Children in Need, which takes place on November 20.

It has been a busy 2008 for the pair, who also presented an exhibition at the Science museum in London designed to get children thinking about design and invention.
