Wallace the wacky inventor and his faithful pooch, Gromit, return in this hilarious, Oscar-winning animated short. Here, the cheese-loving duo have started their own window-washing business. When wool shop proprietor Wendolene Ramsbottom hires them, it's love at first sight for Wallace. The befuddled bachelor tries to win her over, but he and his dog soon get into a mountain of trouble. Sheep have been disappearing throughout the neighborhood and Gromit is wrongly accused of the crime. Can Wallace clear his buddy's name and find the real culprit?
Wallace must extricate his canine companion, Gromit, from a fiendishly sinister plan set in motion by his new girlfriend's mutt. Academy Awards: Best Short Film (Animated).
