Overview

A Grand Day Out
In A Grand Day Out it's another bank holiday in northern England, and eccentric inventor Wallace and his faithful dog, Gromit, are sitting around the house with nothing to do. While poring over stacks of travel magazines, Wallace suggests that the pair break for a hot cup of tea and some cheese. When he discovers that there's no cheese to be found anywhere in the house, he hits upon an ideal place for a picnic: "Everybody knows the moon's made of cheese." With Gromit's help, he immediately starts construction on a rocket ship, and before long the two are walking on (and tasting) the lunar surface. As they continue to explore, they are blissfully unaware that they -- and their rocket -- are being watched by a creature that has dreams and aspirations of its own.

The Wrong Trousers
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.

A Close Shave
The third film to feature the claymation adventures of Wallace and Gromit, A Close Shave finds the inventor and his dog with a new business, new friends, and a new adversary. As the story begins, the team has decided to open a window-washing service, with Wallace providing clever gadgets while Gromit does the real work. Yet Wallace continues inventing in his spare time and has recently built a new device, the Knit-O-Matic, to clean and shear sheep -- which comes in quite handy when a lost lamb takes refuge in their home. Wallace and Gromit soon discover that this lamb has escaped from a pair of evil sheep rustlers who want him back. The mastermind of the rustling scheme turns out to be Preston, a dog belonging to local wool-shop proprietor Wendolene Ramsbottom; complicating things further is the fact Wendolene is also the object of Wallace's romantic affections. When Preston frames Gromit as the rustler and plots to steal the Knit-O-Matic, the pair must find a way to save the sheep and themselves. Director Nick Park once again mixes inventive animation with deviously clever plotting and whimsical humor, a combination that won him his third "Best Animated Short" Oscar.

Editorial Reviews

New York Times - Stephen Holden
Rube Goldberg himself couldn't have improved on the elaborate contraptions that Wallace, an eccentric English inventor who is one-half of the claymation duo, Wallace and Gromit, has devised to make their home a gadget fanatic's dream house.
Time Magazine - Richard Corliss
Stop-motion animation, in which each character and prop made of clay or plastic must be adjusted 24 times for every second of film, is a technique that requires a masochistic devotion. [Nick] Park has that and more: a storyteller's genius for incident and personality.

    An Ingenious Mix of Pomp and Substance

    These are three amazing short films, unlike anything I have ever seen, and Wallace & Gromit have become one of film history's most famous dynamic duos.

    A Must for GOOD Family Movies

    Funny and unforgettable - that's how I'd describe these movies :) My family discovered these movies in my teen years but I absolutely LOVED these movies anyway! I can't tell you how many of my "cool" friends came over and watched them with me and Loved them too! I wish that there were more! Now that I am a parent, you can be sure that these will be played alot!! I think that claymation movies are rare and are a form of a brilliant art that is dying out. And these people are the best,in my opinion :) Please enjoy them as well!!!

    A crackin' good time....

    Brilliant and witty. Who would have ever thought that the moon is made out of Wensleydale and not Edam! Laugh out loud - British humour at it's very best. Feathers is the best villain to hit the screen in yonks! Recommend to young and old - if you love a crackin' good time and enjoy having a laugh, you'll love Wallace and Gromit's adventures.

    Absolutely Fabulous!

    My family has enjoyed Wallace and Grommit for years! We're very excited about the up-coming movie that will be out in theatres. My 7 and 9 year olds used to love to watch these videos more then the typical kids videos when they were growing up. They especially like "Wrong Trousers." A must have if you liked Chicken Run. That was by the same makers of this series. Jolly Good Fun!

    More cheese than Cracker Barrel and that's just the Stilton.

    These videos are a great set of claymation fun. Follow Walace and Gromet in three diffrent tales. If you enjoyed "Creature Feature" and "Chicken Run" than these are the movies for you. Funny and suspenceful at times. Recommended for the kids. In "A close Shave", Walace maybe in love, but is this lady and her dog right for Gromet and him? "A Grand Day Out" is a fun little adventure that takes Walace and Gromet on a "Holiday" for cheese that is sure to please, but where are they going? In "The Wronge Trousers" a room is "let" and a penquin takes the room. A penquin who has a secret plan of his own, much to the dismay of poor Gromet. What is this new guest upto and what can Gromet do to save Walace?
