Featuring the extraordinary clay animation of their Academy Award winning short films, Wallace & Gromit in Three Amazing Adventures takes the hilarious antics of Wallace, the lovably eccentric inventor, and Gromit, his savvy canine companion, to new heights of fun!
Plus, available for the first time on DVD, Wallace & Gromit In Cracking Contraptions - 10 mini-shorts featuring more of Wallace's zany inventions and the hilarious dilemmas they always create.
A Grand Day Out
Join the ultimate human-canine team as they blast off in a home-made rocket to see if the moon is really made of cheese.
The Wrong Trousers
Mild-mannered Wallace and his faithful dog, Gromit, end up in a train-top chase as they try to stop a diamond heist by a diabolical penguin.
A Close Shave
The cheese lover and his sidekick investigate the wildest, woolliest sheep rustling yarn ever made of clay.
There are fewer bonus features here than on the BBC DVD
, but fans are still going to want it. Along with the three original shorts, 10 two-minute "Cracking Contraptions" produced in 2002 are featured; each one deals with a new invention and every one is a gem. None of the in-depth features or Nick Park commentaries made the cut this time. It's hardly a definitive DVD, but with 20 minutes of new programming, there's nearly 25% more of Wallace & Gromit
for everyone to enjoy. --Doug Thomas
