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.
When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it's up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home.
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 »

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.Written by
When Gromit is in the Techno-Trousers and painting the ceiling of the spare room (upside down), Wallace backs out into the upstairs hallway and bumps into Feathers. Feathers is not there until Wallace bumps into where he is supposed to be standing. See more »

During the end credits sequence, the Techno-Trousers walk down the street, still stuck in a dustbin. The sun sets until the sequence fades to black. See more »
In the original broadcast version Gromit's birthday card plays "Happy Birthday". When released on DVD it plays "For He's A Jolly Good Fellow". The music the penguin is playing to annoy Gromit has been replaced by organ music. The reason for the music change is due to copyright issues. See more »
The short that proves one shouldn't let one's spare room to unfamiliar penguins without excellent references!
This marvelous short won the Academy Award and is the best of the series, though all so far have been delightful! The praise heaped on Wallace and Gromit has been vast and well-deserved, so my additions are gilding the lily, but I'll still say something. The Wrong Trousers is funny, sad, insightful and just plain mad, frequently all at once. If there's any justice, they will remain in print in perpetuity. Most recommended.
