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?

That aside though, you get all four of the half-hour Wallace & Gromit movies. The first three, originally shot on film, have been remastered for HD and done absolutely beautifully. They've been cleaned up very carefully, a lot of old movies don't look as good on Blu-ray as these do. Watching in HD, instead of exposing any problems with the puppets or sets, actually makes the whole thing more stunning. The attention to detail is captivating.
Each film has a commentary, as well as a 'making of' which charts the changes in technology and budget between the first and most recent films. A couple of other brief extras such as a photo gallery and a behind-the-scenes on the W&G Harvey Nichols poster campaign help fill the disc.
Ideally a 'complete' collection would have been a box set featuring "Cracking Contraptions", but what you do get is still beautiful animations with wit and charm.
Picture and sound quality on this release is excellent, particularly on 'A Matter of Loaf and Death', but even the earliest film, 'A Grand Day Out', looks impressive. The high definition presentation highlights a few visual elements that perhaps weren't so obvious in SD - obviously painted backdrops, thumb-prints in the plasticine figures, and so on - but none of these detract from the films themselves, and to some extent actually enhance them, as it gives you a better sense of the sheer amount of work that has gone into even the smallest scenes. HD is also great for spotting little visual gags that Nick Park and co. have left scattered throughout the background. All the films are accompanied by commentaries, and there's a wealth of behind the scenes material too - though unfortunately this is all presented in SD.
I've seen these films countless times down the years, but the Blu Ray release really does give them a new lease of life - and compared with the standalone release of 'A Matter of Loaf and Death', it's terrific value for money too.
Only one real complaint, the music in "The Wrong Trousers" has been changed. Both the birthday card and the Penguin's radio. Just sounds does not sound right with the new tunes.
However: three points of criticism.
First, it is not the complete collection. The Curse of the Were-Rabbit is not on this disc.
Second, the menu. It feels like an old fashioned dvd menu, not accessible during movie playback. Special features return to the main menu after playback, instead of the Specials submenu.
Third, subtitles. Only English SDH is available, and after each movie it forgets this setting.
Nonetheless, these are minor issues, the movies are Grand!
A perfectly marvelous collection of one of Britain's best ever exports that will delight the youngest and oldest members of almost any family with ease!!!
A good stop-animation set of movies (30 minutes each) -- just watch out that you want to watch it in order from a grand day out. The commentaries and additional documentaries are good.
What is impressive about this animation is that it is funny for adults and for kids in different ways -- like the scene from "ghost" where Wallace is kneading bread looks funny to those who've seen the film and for kids it looks like sloppy fun -- so funny in different ways, And there are quite a few other episodes like this
Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Academy Award® Oscar winning eccentric inventor Wallace, and his faithful, four-legged friend Gromit, have had all four of their smashing half hour specials in this complete collection, have been specially re-mastered!
