In addition to this, the duo's series of nine short films Cracking Contraptions, 25xone-minute episodes of Angry Kid (pictured), 13xten-minute episodes of cult TV comedy series Rex the Runt and The Pearce Sisters, the film which won the Special Jury Prize at Annecy 07 and the Cartoon D'Or at Cartoon Forum 07 are also available.

This is the latest move from Aardman in the digital arena and follows on from a number of deals last year which saw it expanding its roster of programming to new online and mobile audiences through deals with Joost, Rhythm and Atom Films and Player X in the US.

"We are delighted that some of our key shows will now be available to new viewers through the world's most popular online TV store," said Robin Gladman, digital rights manager at Aardman.
