Product Description

From Amazon.co.uk

Clay-animation master Nick Park deservedly won the 1993 Academy Award for Best Animated Short for this 30-minute masterpiece, in which the good-natured inventor Wallace and his trusty dog, Gromit, return for another grand adventure. It all begins on the morning of Gromit's birthday, when Wallace gives his beloved pooch the gift of his latest invention--a pair of mechanical "techno-trousers" that can be programmed to take Gromit out for walkies while Wallace sits comfortably at home. Gromit's not exactly thrilled with the new gadget, and things go from bad to worse when Wallace rents a room to a new boarder--a rather suspicious-looking penguin--to offset his rising expenses. As it turns out, the penguin's a notorious thief and the amazing techno-trousers provide a foolproof method of pulling off a diamond heist! It's Gromit's big opportunity for canine heroics, and The Wrong Trousers turns into one of the funniest, most inventive caper-comedies ever made, with an action-packed climax on a speeding miniature train. Will the notorious "Feathers" wind up in jail where he belongs? Will Gromit finally get his due recognition? Watch this amazing marvel of clay animation to see why Wallace & Gromit have become global celebrities--this is comedic ingenuity at its finest. --Jeff Shannon

Product Description

Nick Park's Oscar-winning animated short following inventor Wallace (voice of Peter Sallis) and his dog, Gromit. Having created a pair of 'Techno Trousers' which are designed to take Gromit out for a walk, Wallace decides to take on a tenant in the form of a penguin named Feathers McGraw to help pay the bills. Little does Wallace know, McGraw is actually a criminal who is planning to re-tune the Techno Trousers in order to pull off a raid. Gromit becomes wise to the penguins antics and it is up to him to save the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous, Perfectly Judged 24 April 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Maybe all I need to say about this is that I love it, and so does my son who has just turned three. It's a miracle of construction that it works so well on so many levels, and can appeal to 3-year-olds and 34-years-olds equally strongly. Laugh out loud over and over.

It's a nice book, a pleasant souvenir! A classic and complete storyboard. Nice illustrations, interesting comments, and perfect to better understanding the dialogues to a foreigner reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gromit does it again! 31 Mar 2005
By Kona TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:VHS Tape
This hysterically funny film features Wallace, a bumbling inventor, and his wise dog, Gromit. It's Gromit's birthday, and to his horror, Wallace gives him not only a collar and leash (!) but a mechanical, walking pair of trousers to take him out on "walkies." To make matters worse, a mysterious penguin has moved in, taken over Gromit's room, and, it seems, his spot in Wallace's heart. Gromit leaves home and discovers the penguin is the wanted criminal "Feathers," who plans to use the mechanical pants to steal a priceless diamond.
The story is very clever, and the wonderful claymation completely enchanted me. It's very droll and sly, often poignant, and really, really funny. Clever Gromit, absent-minded Wallace, and the sinister penguin are comic characters you can enjoy over and over.
This Academy Award-winning 30-minute film can be enjoyed by all ages, and I think adults may laugh even louder than the children.

This film is a brilliant and wonderfully funny piece of animation and is smoother than the first wallace and gromit film. Its a laugh a second and gromit's expressions make the film!

5.0 out of 5 stars Robotrousers and the Sinister Penguin. 6 April 2013
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The Wrong Trousers is directed by Nick Park who also co-writes the story with Bob Baker. Out of Aardman Animations and featuring the voice of Peter Sallis, the story sees Wallace & Gromit up to their necks in trouble when they take in a mysterious penguin lodger.

The second animated feature outing for Wallace & Gromit is that type of animated feature that the kids roar at and the adults nod appreciatively towards. With its low key sense of humour, crime movie homage and scorching attention to detail, it's as good as claymation gets. Structured in simple three tier movie format, Park enjoys dallying with noir like visuals as Julian Nott's music rumbles away like it was a Karloff movie. Then it's into the final quarter where the story hits its menacing peak and Park unleashes a thrilling finale as our illustrious Northerners hurtle around the house on a model train. Brilliant. 9/10
