Clay-animation master Nick Park deservedly won the 1993 Academy Award for Best Animated Short for this 30-minute masterpiece, in which the good-natured inventor Wallace and his trusty dog, Gromit, return for another grand adventure. It all begins on the morning of Gromit's birthday, when Wallace gives his beloved pooch the gift of his latest invention--a pair of mechanical "techno-trousers" that can be programmed to take Gromit out for "walkies" while Wallace sits comfortably at home. Gromit's not exactly thrilled with the new gadget, and things go from bad to worse when Wallace rents a room to a new boarder--a rather suspicious-looking penguin--to offset his rising expenses. As it turns out, the penguin's a notorious thief, and the amazing techno-trousers provide a foolproof method of pulling off a diamond heist! It's Gromit's big opportunity for canine heroics, and The Wrong Trousers turns into one of the funniest, most inventive caper-comedies ever made, with an action-packed climax on a speeding miniature train. Will the notorious "Feathers" wind up in jail where he belongs? Will Gromit finally get his due recognition? Watch this amazing marvel of clay animation to see why Wallace & Gromit have become global celebrities--this is comedic ingenuity at its finest. --Jeff Shannon

Wallace and Gromit it awesome, and its even better than I remembered it in middle school/ early high school seeing it now in my college years. If you enjoy the short films, this is a must have. There is also a collection of little short films on various inventions Wallace made called :Cracking Contraptions that you may want to have a look at.
I'm not exactly complaining about the content, as I am indeed happy with the 4 shorts I received. I am more complaining about the packaging, and concept of the set in general. This is why I gave it 4 stars, because I did, in fact, get what I ordered. It's not Amazon's fault that I didn't read the description a little more closely. I'm just a little put off that it was packaged this way. Maybe this set was put out in the late 90s? IDK. At the very least, they could have just smashed all 4 shorts onto one disc and sold that as a shorts compilation.
