Sublime brilliance from Aardman Animations in which genius creations Wallace & Gromit are plunged into a hilarious tale of skullduggery and derring-do involving a mechanical pair of trousers and a villainous lodger penguin. Our modelling clay heroes are unwitting accomplices in a dastardly plot to steal a diamond from the local museum.. Easily my favourite Wallace & Gromit short film and quite possibly a masterpiece.
The best of the first three Wallace & Gromit shorts. It is endearing, funny and clever. While the first short suffered from not having a "real" problem; and the antagonist from the third was not interesting, this one gives us Feathers McGruff, an intriguing and cold blooded penguin that makes a worthy adversary to Gromit. An exhilarating chase scene and superb stop motion animation makes this one wonderful.
