02/18/2005: Wallace & Gromit
While I was watching the Westminster Kennel Club Dog show earlier this week, they played a commercial for a upcoming feature-length movie for "Wallace & Gromit." This is the guy, Nick Park, from Aardman Animation who did the hit animation movie "Chicken Run"...but Wallace and Gromit...are BRILLIANT. Their website has these character sites to peruse, plus, there is a site for the movies, games, contraptions and more; a cute Xbox Game of Wallace and Gromit too.
There are only three episodes available on tape or CD of Wallace and Gromit. Our favorite's in descending order - not related to release dates- is FIRST..."A Grand Day Out." This is the one to get to the Moon because they've run out of "Cheeeeese" and Wallace is looking through his "Cheese Holiday" magazines. It's too funny. Watch for the sunglasses' wearing mice. :-)
Our next fav is "A Close Shave," about the sheep and wool rustlers...and Wallace's flame...Gwendolyn. Ahhhh...now there's a "Clay-Mation Babe" *teehee*
And third, but definitely not pulling up the rear by any means, is "Wrong Trousers," with the evil Penquin and one of Wallace's inventions gone awry.
Well....Can't wait for more Wallace and Gromit coming this fall! Hip hip hooray!
