Wallace and Gromit have run out of cheese and this provides an excellent excuse for the animated duo to take their holiday on the moon, where, as everyone knows, there is ample cheese. Written by
According to the book The World of Wallace and Gromit, the film was originally 40 minutes in length, including a sequence where Wallace and Gromit discover a Fast-food restaurant on the Moon. Nick Park remarked: "Originally, Wallace and Gromit go to the Moon, and there's a whole lot of characters there. One was a parking meter attendant, and the only one that remained - the robot cooker character, but there were also aliens and all sorts. There was even a McDonalds on the Moon, and it was going to be a spoof on Star Wars. Wallace would get thrown in prison and Gromit had to get him out. By the time I came to Aardman, I had just started the Moon sequence and somebody told me, it will take another nine years to do that. I had a reality check and cut the scene. Somehow, I had to tie up the story on the Moon and finish the film." See more »

"Gromit, we've forgotten the crackers!" Wallace and Gromit are very funny, very cute little claymation characters that go on adventures so that everybody can have a good time. In this short, they go to the moon, because everyone knows it's made out of cheese, and cheese is what they want. When they get there, it's a bit different than they expected, but that doesn't stop them from exploring around and running into a little mischief with a robot thing that happens to be left there (and take Earthling money, too...).
It's quite a charming little duo, this Wallace and Gromit. Wallace is the inventor with a smile on his face and the plans to do whatever he fancies, while Gromit is his concerned protector, chasing after him to make sure his master is okay. The claymation is of the finest sort, with their expressions perfect and a lot of depth to their eyes.
Just remember: don't forget the crackers.
