LONDON (AP) — Where's Wallace?
A collection of 81 sculptures of ingenious animated dog Gromit has netted more than 2.3 million pounds ($3.7 million) at a charity auction in England.
The 5-foot (1.52-meter) dogs were on display across the city of Bristol over the summer, and had been decorated by artists and designers including Cath Kidston, Paul Smith and Quentin Blake.
The top lot was Gromit Lightyear — designed by Pixar and based on the "Toy Story" character. It sold for 65,000 pounds ($104,000).
The funds raised from Thursday's sale will go toward the expansion of Bristol Children's Hospital.
Bristol is the home city of Aardman Animations, which created the stop-motion comedy series about cheese-loving inventor Wallace and his dog.
