This short was nominated for the Academy Award. It introduces us to Wallace and Gromit. Interestingly, the stars are less appealing than one of the supporting characters: the little whatever-it-is they run into on their jaunt to the moon for cheese. This little critter apparently wants to be Jean-Claude Killy when it grows up. The best parts of a very fine short are with this odd little entity, whatever it happens to be. Fine beginning to a great series that's gotten better as it goes along. Recommended to those few souls who haven't seen it yet.
