A Grand Day Out On a quest for his favorite snack, Wallace takes Gromit on an out-of-this-world adventure in his homemade space rocket to discover if the moon is really made of cheese. The Wrong Trousers Wallace takes in a mysterious lodger, but Gromit's suspicions are aroused when the new arrival starts to show a sinister interest in his master's Techno-Trousers. A Close Shave Wallace and Gromit set up a window cleaning business, only to find themselves ensnared in a deadly mystery involving sheep rustling, a malevolent guard dog and true love.

This has to be the best DVD of Wallace and Gromit out there today.

When the version that was released to promote the Were-Rabbit movie came out, I was dissappointed to see that none of the behind the scenes features were not included. However, it had the Cracking Contraptions shorts, which the first DVD did not have. As a result, I didn't get either version.

So I was shopping at Wal-Mart when I saw this disc. Imagine my elation when I saw that is combined the best of two previous releases: the behind the scenes of all three films, with two that are specific to the latter two shorts of the first release, plus the Cracking Contraptions shorts of the second release. Plus, there are two episodes of the Shaun the Sheep series. I definitly had to pick this up.

Want one more reason to get this disc? How about the fact that, despite not being made with the fancy animation of computers, these shorts are golden. I recommend these shorts to anyone who likes to be entertained. I personally prefer The Wrong Trousers to the other two, but all three are beautiful cases of great story-telling and animation acting. (Don't believe me on the animation acting part? Then you tell me how else a clay dog can be the most expressive animated character ever with only a pair of eyebrows at his disposal.)

This is the ultimate disc to go with Wallace & Gromit - The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (Widescreen Edition), not the other one. I highly recommend getting this release, plus Were-Rabbit to get the full Wallace and Gromit experience.

In 1989, Nick Park partnered with Aardman Animation and released a twenty-five minute short film that created a worldwide phenomenon. It featured as its protagonists an eccentric inventor, named Wallace and his mute dog, Gromit. Wallace (lovably inept) and Gromit (silent but emotive) would become the cornerstone of Aardman's style of stop-motion animation. Their popularity can be credited to the witty comedic writing, the quaint design of the plasticine models and most importantly to the brilliant animators, whose talents are virtually unlimited. Although Gromit never actually speaks, his facial expressions communicate all of his thoughts and emotions giving testament to the skills of the animation team. Since their conception Wallace and Gromit have starred in three short films, a series of "mini-shorts", a feature-length film, not to mention countless advertisements and commercials (mostly in the U.K. and in Japan).

A Grand Day Out - 1989
Wallace, all out of cheese, decides that his holiday should be at "a place where there's cheese". He decides, rather impetuously, to go to the moon because as he says, "Everybody knows the moon's made of cheese." What follows is an hilarious montage sequence showing Wallace and faithful Gromit designing and constructing a rocket ship in the basement. After its completion he and Gromit take off and eventually land on the moon. There they encounter a patrolling gas oven (who for some reason has an antenna on his head and a police baton) that dreams of skiing. As you can tell, there's little logic or reason in the story but that's what gives it its charm.

The Wrong Trousers - 1993
It's Gromit's birthday and Wallace has spent the last of his money buying Gromit a ridiculously extravagant present.

There is little question that Wallace & Gromit are the best animated duo out there. Gromit is a very intelligent canine who always has to bail out his partner, Wallace, from every contraption mess.

Be careful what version you order. This collection has been released a couple of times, and there are differences. The soundtrack changes bteween them (e.g., "Happy Birthday" vs. "He's a Jolly Good Fellow", and "How Much is that Doggy in the Window" vs. generic instrumental). It fits much better with the older version.

No matter what, this is still excellent fun for the parents and the kids!

As much as I've always loved these thee stories, it's a bonus feature here on this DVD which kills me - "Ten Cracking Inventions.." It's absolutely hilarious and extremely clever. It's two minutes each of crazy inventions our pal "Wallace" invented over the year. Please check that out.

As for the "feature" films, I thought they got better and better as they went on, meaning the third one, "A Close Shave," was the best.

I don't think I ever stop laughing looking at the mouths on Wallace and the woman he likes in this story. Wallace is a window cleaner and "Wendolene" is the object of his affections. Unfortunately, both the woman and her pet dog are not good "people." In fact, her pet dog, "Preston" frames poor Gromit for sheep-rustling and winds up in jail. Wallace must rescue him.

A subplot involves Wallace and his love of cheese, which is seen in a number of W&G shorts.

"The Wrong Trousers" is best at the end with a very funny chase scene inside a toy train set. Earlier, Wallace is trying to invent a pair of remote-controlled trousers. He's a bit short on money so he rents out a room in house. The lodger prefers Gromit's room. Gromit is Wallace's pet dog. The dog is literally put out in the dog house, and is not happy about this.

In a crazy series of events, the tenant - an evil penguin - gets Wallace inadvertently involved in a jewel heist and Gromit has to come to the rescue. It's very silly but the unique animated cinematography helps make this a winner.

The same can be said of the first W&G: "A Grand Day Out." Once you watch this 30-minute short, and then check out the rest, you will be hooked!
