Stop That Penguin!

Stop-motion with a British flavor, that doesn't try to whack you over the head with it's look, humor or more importantly, with any kind of "universal life-lesson".
With it's distinction from other films is much more subtle and evenly consistent, the overall result of The Wrong Trousers left me not so much with a roaring laughter that other animated features try to shoot for... read more

Plasticine animation of the loveable duo of Wallace and Gromit; inventors of all manner of useful devices. In this Oscar winning story, Gromit (a dog) finds himself being pushed out of his room and home by a new lodger who is actually a ruthless criminal (and a small penguin). The penguin is planning a robbery and needs to use Wallace and his mechanical remote controlled trousers to pull off the raid. However, Gromit is wise to the penguin and comes to the rescue. A must see for all ages.

100 Greatest Animated Shorts (100 movies items)

"After the success of his first Wallace and Gromit short ‘A Grand Day Out’, Nick Park’s second short starring the pair, ‘The Wrong Trousers’, is one of the great masterpieces of animation. Improving in every way on its predecessor, this Film Noir style tale of an eerie penguin lodger, a pair of robotic trousers, a diamond heist and a traintop battle (of sorts) remains the definitive Wallace and Gromit film and became an instant classic from the moment it was first screened. I have loved"
