Trivia:
In an effort to get Gromit out of the house, the penguin plays very loud music. One tune is "How Much is That Doggie in the Window?" and another is "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree" which indicates that he's just been released from prison.See more »

Continuity: When Wallace is being dressed by the machine in the morning, it puts his sleeves on first, then his shirt and cardigan combination. When Gromit is sitting in the seat later, the machine puts on the shirt and cardigan first and the sleeves afterwards.See more »

Wonderful – Gromit steals the show and the penguin is superbly sinister!, 28 September 2002
Author: bob the moo from United Kingdom

In order to help make ends meet Wallace decides to rent out their spare room. However the new lodger takes Gromit's room and puts him out in the dog house. Meanwhile Wallace continues work on a pair of remote controlled trousers. But is the new lodger as innocent a chicken as he appears? Wallace finds himself part of a major jewel robbery – can Gromit return in time to save him?

The second of the adventures of Wallace & Gromit sees the animation greatly improve and the comedy oh so very sharp and funny. The basic plot is a little silly but very well crafted considering this is a short film – I wish many `proper' films had plots this clever and imaginative. It is also absolutely a wonder to watch – even when I wasn't laughing I was easily charmed by the wit and imagination of the whole thing.

The animation is superb, Wallace is as good as ever and Gromit is much more fully developed and is easily the star. The penguin however threatens to steal the show as well as the jewel. How can a plastercine penguin with a glove on it's head that likes listening to organ music be threatening? Well it can – here he snaps his head round and stares with such menace that it's frightening! They all work well together but Gromit takes the film by a nose.

With all those brain dead kids cartoons around on TV this should be treasured. Adults will love it as there is plenty of detail for them to enjoy and kids will totally fall for the rich comedy and well animated characters. A wonderful little gem.
