The Wrong Trousers (1995)

MPAA Rating: Unrated

Details Movie Rated: Unrated; Genre: Animation; With: Peter Sallis

Wallace is a cheese-loving dunderhead who whips up inventions in his basement. Gromit is his canine companion who reads books like Science for Dogs. Together they're the coolest claymation couple since Gumby met Pokey. In the 30-minute Oscar-winning short The Wrong Trousers (which took English animator Nick Park two years to produce), the duo do battle with a scheming penguin who steals Wallace's latest invention — a pair of mechanical trousers — and uses them to rob the local museum. Brilliant, adorable, and irresistible. If only there were a grade even higher than... A+
