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
Gromit's birthday is February 12, indicated by the circling of the number 12 on the calendar and the month only having 29 days (it is also leap year). See more »
The close-up on the box of spare track segments that Gromit picks up shows that all the segments must be straight. However, Gromit uses these segments to guide the train round a 180 degree curve and to slalom round the legs of the table and chairs. Watching frame by frame, Gromit pulls each time a short straight segment out of the box, but it ends up much longer (and curved when necessary) when put down. The box also doesn't seem to be getting emptier. See more »

Don't worry, Gromit! Everything's under control!

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 »
Together with 'Wallace & Gromit: A Close Shave' and 'Wallace & Gromit: A Grand Day Out' this is one of the funniest things I have seen. The clay animation looks great, the stories are very ingenious and the jokes are great. If you get a chance to see this, please do so. You will have a great time.
I guess this one is the best from the three, although 'A Close Shave' comes close. You must see all three of them anyway, so it doesn't really matter.
