Overview

The second short film to feature the claymation antics of eccentric inventor Wallace and his dog Gromit, The Wrong Trousers sees the duo become unwitting accomplices to a jewel theft. The trouble begins when, struggling to make ends meet, Wallace decides to take in a boarder - a mysterious penguin. At first, Wallace and his new tenant get along famously; indeed, the penguin forces Gromit out of his room and into the doghouse, literally. However, the bird is not what he seems: Gromit discovers that the penguin is actually the infamous burglar Feathers McGraw. Feathers has his eye on Wallace's most recent invention -- a pair of mechanical trousers that can be programmed to automatically walk on their own -- believing the device will help him steal a world-famous diamond at the local museum. When Feathers traps Wallace inside the trousers, Gromit must find a way to stop the malicious penguin and save his friend. This Oscar-winner for "Best Animated Short" works both as a hilarious parody of film noir and as an exciting, action-packed adventure in its own right, combining skillful visual design and superb animation with inventive, witty storytelling.
