Wallace takes a break from trying to decide on a holiday destination only to find he has no cheese for his crackers. The solution to both problems is a trip to the moon, with dog Gromit, because everybody knows the moon's made of cheese.
Shaun is a sheep who doesn't follow the flock - in fact, he leads them into all sorts of scrapes and scraps, turning peace in the valley into mayhem in the meadow. Shaun and his pals run ... See full summary »
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
To make the film, Nick Park wrote to the inventor of Plasticine William Harbutt's company, where he requested a long ton of it. The block he received had ten colours, one of which was called stone. He used that for Gromit. See more »
The packaging of the Crackers packets change color between being moved from the kitchen into the rocket. When upstairs, the packets are orange and the "Crackers" writing has white text against a black background. Before take-off, it is black writing against a gray background. See more »
Eeh, these bank holidays. It's a problem to decide. Tell you what, Gromit lad!

Let's have a nice hot cup of tea, hmm?

Kettle should've boiled by now.

In this Wallace and Gromit short, the clay twosome voyage to the moon in order to replenish their cheese supplies. They also learn that traffic wardens have dreams too. This is stylish and funny and will leave you wanting to see more.
To my mind, this is the best W&G outing. Let me explain. I agree that the characters are not as developed as they were in 'The Wrong Trousers' or 'A Close Shave' and also the plot is weaker. Some of the models are not as refined as they came to be (this is after all the first W&G film).
What it has that the other W&G offerings lack is that feeling of sadness and mood that the 'The Wrong Trousers' and 'A Close Shave' replace with story telling. This is closer to Tom and Jerry than it is to Chicken Run. It has laughs sure, but the feeling I have when the credits role is of one of wistfulness and a slight melancholy. Not bad for 20 minutes of plasticine animation!
See this Wallace and Gromit, then move onto the others asap.
