Voice: Peter Sallis (Wallace).
On a quest for his favorite snack, Wallace takes Gromit on an out-of-this-world adventure in his homemade space rocket to discover if the moon really is made of cheese. Then, Wallace takes in a mysterious lodger, but Gromit's suspicions are aroused when the new arrival starts to show a sinister interest in his master's Techno-Trousers. Last, Wallace and Gromit set up a window-cleaning business, only to find themselves ensnared in a deadly mystery involving sheep rustling, a malevolent guard dog and true love.
DVD, region 1; Dolby Digital.
A Grand Day Out is delightful and a perfect encapsulation of what Wallace and Gromit is really about. Wallace is a wonderfully oblivious if ingenious inventor and Gromit is the practical one, taking care of the detail work and generally being an all around amazing pet - he's like a modern-day Snoopy, with more appreciation and affection for his owner.
A Grand Day Out ranks first for me (I love that moon robot) and then A Close Shave (I suppose because of Shaun the Sheep) and then The Wrong Trousers (I just hate to believe a penguin could be capable of evil). Watch them all. They are completely worth your undivided attention.
