Storyline

Wallace and Gromit have a brand new business. The conversion of 62 West Wallaby Street is complete and impressive, the whole house is now a granary with ovens and robotic kneading arms. Huge mixing bowls are all over the place and everything is covered with a layer of flour. On the roof is a 'Wallace patent-pending' old-fashioned windmill. The transformation is perfect. Although business is booming, Gromit is concerned by the news that 12 local bakers have 'disappeared' this year - but Wallace isn't worried. He's too distracted and 'dough-eyed' in love with local beauty and bread enthusiast, Piella Bakewell, to be of much help. While they enjoy being the 'Toast of the Town', Gromit, with his master's life in jeopardy, must be the sleuth and solve the escalating murder mystery - in what quickly becomes a 'Matter of Loaf and Death'.

Goofs

Grommit starts driving during the first bread delivery. Yet Wallace hands him the steering wheel. They have swapped places. Wallace is now driving. This could be regarded as an error, but there is sufficient time for them to change positions. See more »

It's a 30 minutes Wallace and Gromit short from Aardman. Wallace and Gromit are bakers. There is someone killing bakers and Gromit is concerned while Wallace is clueless as always. Wallace is taken with the Bake-O-Lite lady. He rescues her but Gromit is suspicious of the circumstance.

This is standard Wallace and Gromit, and that's a great joy. This is a fun one. It's got a good villain. It's lots of fun.
