Four animated adventures featuring Nick Park's inimitable pair of plasticine heroes: cheese-loving inventor Wallace and his long-suffering dog Gromit. In 'A Grand Day Out' (1993), Wallace runs out of his favourite Wensleydale cheese on Boxing Day and cannot find a shop open to replenish his stock. The only solution is to get in his homemade rocket and head for the biggest block of cheese in the universe: the moon. In 'The Wrong Trousers' (1993), Wallace and Gromit encounter difficulties with the demonstration of the inventor's 'Techno Trousers' and encounter a rogue chicken. In 'A Close Shave' (1995), Wallace and Gromit set up a lucrative window cleaning business and get involved with a lady from a wool shop. Wallace becomes infatuated with her, but Gromit becomes interested in the case of some disappearing sheep, and blames the wool-shop owner's dog. However, the devious dog frames Gromit for the disappearing sheep, and Wallace must pull himself together in time to save the reputation of his old pal. In 'A Matter of Loaf and Death' (2008), the pair have converted their home into the 'Top Bun' bakery - complete with rooftop windmill - but with 12 local bakers having gone mysteriously missing, Gromit worries that they'll soon make up the baker's dozen. Wallace, meanwhile, is oblivious to the danger, having fallen head over heels for former Bake-O-Lite bread babe, Piella Bakewell. With his master otherwise engaged, it's up to Gromit to rise to the occasion and solve the mystery before Wallace becomes the next victim of the 'cereal' killer.
Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Wallace and Gromit
- the Academy Award (Oscar) - winning claymated pair have specially re-mastered all four of their smashing half hour specials in this complete collection!
A GRAND DAY OUT Wallace likes a nice bit of cheese with his crackers, so when this eccentric inventor finds his fridge empty and the local corner shop shut for the Bank Holiday, he is forced to look further a field for his cheddar. The two modelling clay heroes blast off in their home-made rocket on the ultimate day trip – Wallace and Gromit are off to the moon!
THE WRONG TROUSERS This time the modelling clay stars are plunged into a hilarious tale of skulduggery involving an extraordinary pair of automated trousers and a villainous penguin. Posing as an innocent lodger, the fiendish fish-eater sets about recruiting mild mannered Wallace as an unwitting accomplice to his dastardly plot - a diamond heist with a technically advanced, trouser-inspired difference. It is left to Gromit to turn detective and save the day as malice and mayhem culminate in a breathless train-top chase - around the sitting room!
A CLOSE SHAVE Trade is booming for Wallace and Gromit's Wash'n'Go window cleaning service and love is in the air as Wallace falls for the owner of the local wool shop, the lovely Wendolene. But Wallace has a new incentive - a Knit-O-Matic machine - and adventure looms. Sheep are being rustled, wool is in short supply and Wendolene's malevolent pooch is on the prowl... featuring Shaun the Sheep!
A MATTER OF LOAF AND DEATH Wallace and Gromit have opened a new bakery – Top Bun – and business is booming, not least because a deadly Cereal Killer has murdered all the other bakers in town. Can Gromit save his master from becoming the next baker to be butchered?
