Park's claymation film follows an Ealing-esque comedy-with-sinister-undertones scenario. The adventure centres on the case of the disappearing sheep. Northern gadget-meister Wallace and his hound Gromit have taken up window-cleaning, and it isn't long before Wallace is swept off his feet by the owner of the local wool shop, Wendolene Ramsbottom. Amateur sleuth Gromit, meanwhile, investigates the mysterious movements of her shifty-looking dog, Preston. Extremely engaging, very funny and perfectly paced (plus nods to Batman and The Terminator).
