Ardman Professor Tutorial from 3DW100
3DWorld 100 has a neat little Maya tutorial by Steve Roberts, who is a character modeller and rigging artist at Aardman Animations. I started on the tute - boy do you get rusty with applications like Maya fast :-) I still love this idea of modelling from a cube.
This is what I should end up with which should be fun:

This little vid by Ray Chung (from some time ago I know) but it really makes me laugh. This cut together of Star Wars and Aardman's Wallace and Gromit is not just funny, it is a classy piece of editing, and being a fan of both films, it gets all my thumbs up!
