The Best Episode, Because the Inventors are Do-It-Yourselfers Like Wallace
I knew this show wouldn't be as fun as the usual AArdman animated effort. Not matter how hard the human hosts try, the kids know they're just filler between the brief, wonderfully animated clips of Wallace & Gromit hosting the show.
But this episode is different, because most of the inventors are do-it-yourselfers Like Wallace, and they are also just as spirited. See for yourself if you don't get a lump in your throat when Tony Sale reactivates the robot he created over 60 years ago, and the two oldsters go out shopping.
Two other inventors are nothing short of heroic: William Kamkwamba, who used instructions in a book to make a windmill which brought power to his family's house in Malawi; and Trevor Baylis, an Englishman who invented a wind-up radio that would bring the information age to places that had no way to power standard devices.
On the more whimsical side, there's the Einstein Fridge, which proves even ol' Albert didn't bat a thousand.
And for the capper, or should I say "cupper," there's the Teasmade, an alarm clock that has a freshly brewed cup of tea ready for you when it wakes you up. It's the kind of uniquely UK Gadget that Wallace himself probably wishes he had invented.
