Plasticine animation of Wallace and Gromit, inventors of all manner of useful devices. Gromit (a dog) finds himself being pushed out of his room and home by a new lodger who is actually a ruthless criminal (and a small penguin). The penguin is planning a robbery and needs to use Wallace and his mechanical remote controlled trousers to pull off the raid. However, Gromit is wise to the penguin and comes to the rescue.

From the makers of Chicken Run.

The close-up on the box of spare track segments that Gromit picks up shows that all the segments must be straight. However, Gromit uses these segments to guide the train round a 180 degree curve and to slalom round the legs of the table and chairs. Watching frame by frame, Gromit pulls each time a short straight segment out of the box, but it ends up much longer (and curved when necessary) when put down. The box also doesn't seem to be getting emptier. See more
