Why Watch? There is never a wrong time to enjoy some Wallace & Gromit. This particular short, which won the Oscar for Best Animated Short in 1993, is especially good for walkies. Aardman Animation has a unique sensibility that’s partially antique, engagingly modern and thoroughly British. There’s an innocence to their comedy (even when a penguin is bounce-testing a bed). Not content simply to astonish with craftsmanship that takes a large amount of time and an even larger amount of skill, these stories thrill with a grand sense of adventure and a lot of ridiculous fun. The Wrong Trousers may be their very, very best. What will it cost? Around 30 minutes. Skip Work. Watch More Short Films.
