Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Amy Robinson
Beautiful clay animation, witty storytelling, and richly detailed, colorful images distinguish this beloved trilogy of tales from acclaimed British animator Nick Park. Low-key hero Wallace (voiced by Peter Sallis) is an amiable dreamer who creates elaborate timesaving machines, while his practical canine counterpart, Gromit, is always on hand to do the actual work. A shifty penguin uses a pair of pants to entangle our duo in a jewel heist in The Wrong Trousers. In A Close Shave, Gromit is framed for sheep rustling during a wool shortage. And a trip to the moon to sample lunar cheese is the basis for A Grand Day Out. Technological devices that are being misused or have run amuck constantly threaten the picturesque, easygoing alternate universe the pair inhabits, and this results in the hilarious adventures found in this collection of Academy Award-winning animated shorts.
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.

I thought that it waz one of the coolest movies ever. It waz adventerous and it waz very funny. Also it showed that if you ever want to try a new kind of cheese just go to the moon, and mabey you'll even find an old machine wandering around.

My wife gave me this DVD for my birthday to replace my rather worn VHS copies of the three films... and in a way, it was like seeing them for the first time. I felt that, especially with ''A Grand Day Out'', the colors were a little brighter and the picture clearer. And I loved the extras... just wish we could see more of the Japanese ads featuring the duo...

This is truly artistic work! Our whole family loves Wallace & Gromit. You'll laugh and enjoy it no matter what your age. We recommend it to all of our friends and makes a great gift also. I just wish there were more stories.

Unbelievable to see claymations with such life (a penguin and a dog that can't talk but sure can portray attitude!) I keep forgetting it's only clay! It will cure any bad mood that arises. Humor, suspense, and drama all packed together very cleverly.

As a substitute teacher I sometimes have an oppurtunity to offer students a little video treat for staying well focused and good behavior (a primary concern for a sub). I can think of no more appropriate short films than those of master animator Nick Park. Wallace and Grommet appeal to a wide range of age groups...come to think of it all age groups. An added benefit: they are enjoyable even after repeated viewings.

This is a must-have! Not only do my husband and I enjoy it, but our toddler asks to watch it every day. This is the only movie he actually sits and watches the whole way through.
