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.

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

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!

A very funny film. It makes me laugh a lot. Good animation. Good clean film with no swearing or rudeness. The bad guy is REALLY bad. One of the good choice for family.

This is my all time favourite Wallace and gromit episode. I can remember it back in 1993, when it was aired over Christmas.

My favourite part of this episode is the train chase scene.

Bought for my grandson to watch when he visits. He loves it and I can't count the number of times he has watched it. I love it's gentle sense of humour, ideal for any age.

A classic of its time for its imagination, humour and entertainment value. Great for all the family to enjoy not just the kids.

I ordered this for my grandson to watch when he comes to our house as we still have a VHS player.
